We were there for an afternoon meal and we choose few dishes to share. The waiter was really helpful guiding us through the menu and giving us suggestions. The food was good.

This is the second time we’ve visited here, as we came to krakow in April. We were so impressed that we made a return visit and were not disappointed. I would recommend this restaurant for the atmosphere, food and service.
