“Very Good Traditional Food on a Historic Plaza”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We had a very good meal. Situated across from The Palace of the Arts on Plaza Szczepanski
We enjoyed a huge kielbasa, The Highlander Potato Pancake with Beef Goulash & Sheep's Cheese, & the Pork Knuckle served with Horseradish & Mustard. Yes, our waitress was not the best, she forgot one dish and she messed up the bill twice, but you know, the experience of sitting on the Plaza, having beers, eating a good old fashion traditional meal was very satisfying. We watched children frolic in the fountain across the way and watched the sun go down. It was a good inexpensive meal and we thoroughly enjoyed it! See my photos of the food and the plaza & you will see why we do recommend this eatery.

“Very disappointing experience”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

We tried this place after reading the very positive reviews here on Tripadvisor. Well, sometimes ya gotta believe less than half of what you read. The outside patio was close to fully occupied so we knew service would be a bit slow. The waiter was curt and abrupt, very slow to appear, slow to clear the table, slow to take our order, slow to bring drinks, slow to bring food. There was only one napkin in the tray of eating tools and he did not reappear in time for us to request another napkin, so we tore the one we had been given in two and made do. The table next to us called uselessly for their waitress to bring another fork when they were shorted, but she ignored them and walked away; the gentleman went into the main room and found himself another fork. The food was adequate but certainly nothing to rave about. Fortunately we ordered salads so the temperature of the food was not a concern - did I mention how slow and unfriendly the service was? The location is on a small barren square which funnels traffic from the Rynek onto a major road running outside the Planty, so there is vehicular traffic, noise and odor, but none of the charm, ambience and scenery of the Rynek. Prices were nothing special either, not much different than Hawelka on the Rynek. this place was a definite bust for us, not to be repeated.

“Worst pierogi in Krakow”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Today I ate the worst pierogi after 8 years living in Poland. Im very disappointed. It's very sad how the image from a restaurant is going directly from high to low when they hire a bad chef. This used to be my favorite place for pierogi but after today I don't know if I can come back, it was to disgusting .

“Great little spot to sit and enjoy a bite to eat or a drink!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We sat outside just to have a drink but on inspection of the interior the place looked fantastic. The couple at the table beside ordered food as did the family behind us. Both looked delious and we overheard both parties saying how fantastic it was. The staff were pleasant and efficient. Just wished we found it a days earlier.
