This pub and also Virtuoso Pizzeria and Staropolska Restaurant are all located at Betmanowska Residence Hotel. We had here beers while waiting for our room to be ready. This place has also a nice terrace with great views. However, it was a rainy day and...we sat inside this cozy pub. The beer was reasonably priced. The service was friendly.More

We stopped here for a light lunch on Saturday lunchtime and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Service was prompt and polite and we ordered a medium pizza to share, an IPA and a cider, all of which were excellent and the bill, for a centslly licated...restaurant on the square, was very reasonable. Huge thanks too to the lovely member of staff who raced after us when we left one our bags at the table. Service above and beyond!More

We are really disappointed to realise afterwards that not only the waitress made us pay 12 PLN for a few peanuts and olives, which were supposed to be included in the beer price but also she automatically added 10% for the service, written in Polish...of course ! So in the end we paid the tips twice !! Beer do not worth it. We do not recommend this place. only the view is great in the end.More

I think this place serves the biggest breakfast on the main square. They are not only the biggest but also very tasty and excellent value for money. The breakfast looks exactly like on the menu.

On our first day in Krakow, a group of 13 of us were looking for somewhere near the main square to have a few drinks, and stumbled across Polski Pub. The pub was great, loads of big screens showing football. plenty of large tables for...groups and great service. We ended up returning the day after as well. We didn't eat but the menu looked good as well. Definitely worth a visit when you're in the main square!More

We stumbled across this place after a meal In Krakow. We were glad we visited. It was lively without being too loud and a good range of drinks. The bar man did explain that a service charge had been added on, but we didn’t have...to pay it. We did as the service was good and we were given bar snacks. We have since been back several times :-)More

We visited for lunch on a recent trip to Krakow. The beef goulash and potato pancakes were delicious! Our waiter, who I think was called Kamil on our receipt was fantastic - very friendly, polite and gave excellent service! It was a windy day and...he went around and turned all the heaters on to ensure all of the diners were kept warm. He checked back to make sure that meal was good and brought additional drinks. Thank you Kamil for providing such lovely and friendly service!More

My friend and I went in January on a Wednesday night. We sat outside in the heated see through huts. Upon sitting down it took a while for a waiter to come over to us. In the end we had to ask for someone to...take our order to which we was told to wait while they cleaned a table. I could understand this on a busy night but there was no one waiting for this table and there were other clean ones had someone walked in, they could of taken our order, brought us drinks at the very least but they chose to prioritize cleaning a table. At this point we were ready to walk out when someone came over just as I was about to stand up. We decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and stayed. The food did come out pretty quickly. For starter we shared dumplings (meat) this was the first time I had tried these so I have nothing to compare them too but I enjoyed them. I then got a pork tenderloin for main and the meat was painfully dry and my veg and rice were cold. For desert my friend and I shared a toffee pudding and again it was dry. Once we ate all the ice cream that came with it we could no longer finish the cake. We then asked for the bill and two vodka shots were brought out to finish which I thought was a lovely touch. I paid by card. Now I am always one tip but I do it with cash. Once my card payment had gone through the waiter stood over me and said "you not going to tip by card" I was extremely taken back by this comment especially after the service we recieved. I had money in my purse ready to tip but after that comment and being stood over and abruptly spoken to like that I told him I tip by cash but today I wont be. That is the first time I have left a restaurant and not left any kind of tip.More
