Great food and awesome atmosphere. The exchange rate in Poland favored our currecy, so it was a very luxurious meal of duck and apple and more for very little. I would recommend to everyone, and I will be going out of my way if I travel back to Poland!

First. It hard to find. In one of the street off the main square you will see the Chimera sign. The upstairs is a kind of buffet but it is the basement entrance on the left that is the real prize that you could fail to notice. Descend the stairs and you will be amazed by the magic caves full...

Very nice atmosphere and food. Nice music at the piano. You can easily find a place to sit, for formal dinner with friends or a romantic one.

Had lunch here and it was excellent. Also service was great, especially as when they served me mixed cheese for a starter rather than meats but they still allowed me to eat both at no extra cost. The dungeon like location with various moody paintings made for an interesting atmosphere

A food bar where you can choose from a selection of portions from the bar for different prices. I went for 4 selections which worked out about £5 in English money. It was delicious and the carrot juice I had with it made me feel energised after a day's walking around town. The location was a beautiful, like sitting in... More

The options vary during the day (we were there twice and it was different lunch to evening but also different when we left to when we arrived). The customer flow is constant and so is the... More

My husband and I ate in this basement restaurant twice while visiting Krakow. We loved the food and the decor of the restaurant was so interesting and charming! Reasonably priced. Definitely will go back next time we are in Krakow!
