Dark and basic interior, but quality tradiional East European fare, in fact Hungarian. Great value, with decent wines, Hungarian of course, to boot. Largely local clientele, a very positive sign here.

Anna and I eat here at least twice every time we come to Krakow. It has never disappointed us. We have only eaten potato pan cakes with goulash so we dont know about the other meals on the menu. There are several varieties of goulash to choose from but our favourites are the traditional with salad and the venison. The servings are generous so we usually share one dish between us. As is our want, we also have some wine. The prices are reasonable but the wine is "vin ordinaire". I tried toquay last night. I was expecting a fortified but I received what tasted to me like a normal white wine.

I was attracted to go with my family from the reviews read but I must say my experience left a lot to be desired. This could be because we arrived at 915pm but we were given the impression we were extra. Food ok.
