“Promising place, but for now a bit too expensive”
Reviewed December 24, 2011

Of 3 places in Krakow where I tried luck with a duck this one was not the most remarkable. Although the one of us who didn‘t taste duck in Krakow before, found it lovely.
It surprised us a bit that instead of Argentinian Malbec which was listed in the menu as the house wine, we received some Portugese one which was very good by itself, but obviously too warm. The interiour of the place was stylish and modern, however as we were the only guests at the time it felt a bit uncomfortable to sit in an empty room. The setting was also lacking intimacy, for dinner you‘d expect a bit dimmer lights and more matching music than just a random radio station.
The restaurant is trying hard on some details (like complimentary dumpling for a starter), but more important ones somewhat lack attention. Most of the things we are whining about here would be forgivable for a usual restaurant, but for an upscaled place with upscaled prices they hardly are.
In comparison with other places in town where we dined this one proved to be the most expensive, but neither meal nor atmosphere justified the price difference. They say that it often takes one or two years for a new restaurant to settle in, so we would gladly give Amarylis another try in a while.
