“Fabulous. ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

Went there last night before we returned home. We are very critical when it comes to restuarants, but couldnt fault it at all.
The place itself oozes character and the atmosphere was brilliant. The food was amazing....Both our starters and mains. Couldn't manage a dessert. I had two of there home brewed vodkas which were fabulous. Even got a complementary one at the end of meal. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Brilliant value for money and excellent quality and service.

“Average Lunch”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

I visited for lunch to experience the set lunch. It used to be for 18 zloty but it has gone up to 25 zloty in recent times. Whilst the two courses were perfectly acceptable it wasn't that impressive and there are better lunch options in the area for the money. I won't be back.

“Fabulous food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Unfortunately we went here on our last night in Krakow, otherwise we would have went again. The food was lovely. I had the pork stuffed with plum it was soooo good. Would definitely recommend giving it ago but for a Friday or Saturday night you'd be better to book a table as it gets busy.
Very reasonable prices so good all round:)

“Excellent, excellent, excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

We absolutely loved this restaurant, which is a bit off the beaten tourist track but is well worth the detour. It has a very friendly, relaxed and cosy atmosphere - you could be dressed as smartly or as casually as you like - you'd be made to feel welcome by the lovely staff. The food was out of this world - fairly traditional Polish dishes but always with a twist. Presentation and quality of food were outstanding. We had starters, mains and desserts and everything was great. We were given hazlenut vodkas on the house with the bill, which was under £40 for 2 people, including a bottle of wine and sparkling water. Very reasonable and really deserves its high rating. We wished we'd gone back on our final night, rather than to Trzy Kroki w Szalenstwo, which is currently number one on Trip Advisor but isn't a patch on this place.
