Description: We care for your health and carefully choose the ingredients for the dishes we prepare for you. Here at ZIELONA KUCHNIA you will find only the green cuisine, just as our name suggests. We only serve the finest selection of vegetables, fruit, organic meat, grain products and so much more. Our location may be new but the building itself, right on the courtyard of the council house nr 8, is over 100 years old.We were simply charmed by the wonderful atmosphere, the beauty and the long history of this place.The building was erected around 1908 and was destined to hold a blacksmith and locksmith business. After the First World War a local print shop was open here for years, and all of Chopin’s works were printed here for the first time in history. Today it is a great place for having a cosy get-together and enjoying yourself in great company.

“Lovely food - out of the way a bit and very quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

We eventually found this restaurant having booked a table online before travelling - based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were staying in the Main Square so it was about a 20 minute walk, and a bit difficult to find.

However the food and service was excellent. I would fully recommend a visit to this lovely clean restaurant. My only disappointment was that there was only one other table with customers when we arrved and they left shortly after. So consequently we were the only people in the restauarant for most of our meal, no-one else turned up while we were there.

Excellent value for money and great service - give it a go, if you get a chance.

“Very Good Food & Atmosphere, Good for Vegetarians”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

This restaurant is a bit out of the way, but we had a really nice meal there. I am a vegetarian, and we found some wonderful food there. This isn't always easy to do in Europe, which relies heavily on meat. The atmosphere is trendy, and the restaurant is clean. I felt the prices were incredibly fair for the caliber of food and trendy atmosphere. (Earlier in the day, we paid more at the far less special Hard Rock Cafe)

The only odd thing was that they only played three songs on repeat. By the end of the meal, we could sing along and predict which one was next. This was strange and a little annoying.

“Nice experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

Meal of 2 x 3 fairly small Tiger prawns with salad, Goose breast x1 and a Fillet Steak (listed as Sirloin steak on the menu) and a cheeseplate with honey & cranberry dip for two plus apertifs(Rose), a bottle of Chilean Cab Sauvignon, two brandies (Greek!!, they had no Cognac) and complimentary glasses of Wisniowka set us back £57. Unbelievable value.
OK, the Chilean wine was good, no better and the Fillet steak was accompanied by chilled rice which was not a good choice whilst the risotto served with the prawns had a distinctly medicinal tang which we never bottomed. Overall though a decent meal with good service in a restaurant with simple decor and very good linen.

“Good food at Good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

I was the only one in the entire restaurant for a while before 2 other groups came in. The waiter received me warmly and was very professional in his service.

Ordered stuffed chicken with spinach topped with garlic sauce. That cost me around 7 Euros, an extremely reasonable price I felt for such quality food. They serve French portions, which to me is lovely because it means you don't overeat and feel stuffed. For desserts, I ordered hot lava choc cake (LOVELY!) and that cost 3Euros.

Together with tips and still water, the entire bill came up tyo 60Pln, about 12Euros. Toilet was SO clean and amazing too. Decor was superb. Overall experience very rewarding.

10 mins walk away from old town shouldnt stop you from visiting this place. Superb~!

“Well hidden, but certainly worth finding!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

My wife & I ate here twice during our 4-night stay in Krakow. We arrived at our apartment (Cracowdays), at about 9pm, so the fact that it was straight across the street made it all the more attractive. We also received a 10% discount when we mentioned where we were staying.

The restaurant is through a passage that leads to an open courtyard which is probably a lovely place to eat in the summer. The welcome is warm and the the restaurant is spotless and tastefully decorated.

On our first visit, my wife had the Cream of zucchini and green pea soup & the duck salad, while I had the mushroom soup & the Chicken fillet with spinach and garlic stuffing. With a bottle of decent wine, the total was just over £30! The sirloin and asparagus soup on our second visit was equally as good.
