“Some dishes are good, but place and service are not on the level that we can expect”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

I was in this french bistro in Krakow (I'm french) to taste the french cuisine that they propose.

I took soufflé de fromage (cheese) and Boeuf bourguignon (beef cooked in wine sauce) and my friend the soup of the day and the famous french cassoulet.


The soufflé was just industrial bad food, no interest, no taste ...

The boeuf bourguignon was nice, and the gratin of potatoes served with was very good.

The soup of the day was ok, but the cassoulet was not a real cassoulet. The taste of this was ok, but nothing special.

So lets say that the food was ok, with some very good part, but regarding that we are not in France, but in Poland, we can say that the food was on a good level.

But the waitress, who is alone is not able to serve all the clients in a normal time.

They really need to have a second waitress or a bar tender.

They also need to ask to the waitress to wear some other clothes, and not the one that she is wearing at home when she relax on sofa.

To finish, I can say that this place have no really atmosphere. They try to give some french style, but finally it looks very far from Paris ...

The clients who was there was old people, or couples.

About the prices, I can say that it's not so cheap. Will cost for you, without drinks for starter, main course and dessert, around 80 PLN (20 €) which is expensive for Poland, and you can find a lot of other place who will offer you good service, and nice atmosphere on this price.

If you are looking for nice girls in Krakow it's not the place to go.

“Inexpensive bistro with young clients”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Very short distance from the main square of Kazimierz District. The rooms in the basement are more cosy and romantic than the the space on the ground floor. The food is interesting, innovative and the menu list is quite long. The young waitresses are very friendly and attentive. Finally, like for the touristy location, very reasonable prices.

“Not to be missed when in Krakow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

We went twice in 3 Dayak,loved the food and the service but both times we chose a bottle of white wine and had to have house wine,of long list of whites only Chablis was available.I hope the staff take note!
The bistro is deservedly very popular and this is the only criticism!

Small, bustling French style restaurant which we really enjoyed. It's very popular so make sure you book early, service and food was very good and we really enjoyed, would certainly visit again.
