We ate at this restaurant tonight. After a day sightseeing we were cold and hungry and stumbled across this place just off the main square.
The service was good and food was lovely. I had octopus which was amazing and wild boar- neither of which I had had before and both were enjoyed. My husband had minstrone soup with prawns and the polish selection of dumblings which he enjoyed.
We had 2 cocktails and 2 beers and it was £40 in total.
The atmosphere was romantic and even when a large table of guests arrived for an Xmas party the service was still attentive.
Would definately return if we are in Krakow again.

Apertif was a pleasant surprise. We picked it after reading reviews on Tripadvisor, and enjoyed a variety of dishes: The goat cheese salad was outstanding, and so was the french onion soup. Moving on to main dishes: Excellent duck and incredible tagliatelle with tiger prawn. Dessert: I decided on the Raspberry Creme Brûlée and really enjoyed it. Different, but very well composed.

We came here for Sunday lunch and really enjoyed it. The waitresses were very friendly and efficient and the food was incredible value (the evening menu is more expensive) and very fresh. You could tell that they make their own burgers and fish fingers (from the children's menu) and all four of us were very happy with our choices. No-one hurried us to leave when we had finished (we were waiting for the theatre and it was -15 outside so we were happy to sit for a while) even though the restaurant was quite busy. Lovely atmosphere and well worth finding.

We found this restaurant on tripadvisor before we left the US. When we arrived Krakow, we made a reservation at 6:30pm. We were pretty hungry so we decided to go there at 6pm. They had no problem sitting us. I guess we were petty early for dinner and we were the first people to arrive the restaurant. We really the decor of the restaurant. It was quite romantic. We seated right next to the window. The service was awesome. Our waitress was pretty attentive. She made sure we were ok every so often. The food was great. We liked all the dishes we ordered. They were all very favorable and well-seasoned. The portions were good. The prices were pretty reasonable compared to the US. We will come again if we ever go to Krakow again.

Sunday lunch & no reservation - not a problem.
We had french onion soup (although as seems to be the case in Poland, it looks more like a potato soup !) and the chefs special fish soup (which was absolutely divine).
We asked for more bread to mop up the spoils - again, not an issue and gratis.
Wine was excellent as well.
Will certainly go there again if I am ever in Krakow.
