First come cauliflower meet and smoked salmon with 2 nano toasts as a perfect chef's present. You really love this chef, cause his compliment saves you from the hungry death while waiting for your order, not so long you have to wait I should say. After a chilly autumnal walk- hot wine is a nice choice.
Soup with mushrooms is so nourishing that I can hardly leave a space for the further dishes.
Traditional crisply potato cakes with salmon are amazing. Strongly advise to drop in at this awesome place)

A lot cheaper than a normal French restaurant but the food was very average.Much nicer places to eat in Krakow I think.If you love French food though this might be a good choice for you though as its very reasonable , the staff are friendly and the restaurant itself is gorgeous!

We visited this restaurant after the street its located on was recommended to us by our hotel. The restaurant is just off the main square and is another old cellar with quirky décor and lots of interesting nooks and crannies. The service there was very good and all the staff were very attentive to our needs. The food here is amazing and each dish comes with it's own little twist. I have the classic French onion soup to start which was delicious and it came with a small side of cheese and croutons to make my own and also a portion of cooked onions to add to the soup as you wish. The tastiest French onion soup I have ever tasted! For my main I had the chicken medallion stuffed with chanterelle mushrooms served with crispy potatoes. It was delicious! The restaurant offers good value for money too, we had two starters and two mains a nice bottle of red wine for about £50. Unfortunately there was no room for dessert but the dessert trolley looked amazing! Interesting and quirky restaurant offering awesome food and amazing location!

My wife and I had a really enjoyable evening at this restuarant which we found by chance just off the main square. Ambience was really good, service friendly and efficient without being pushy. Good choice of food which was cooked and presented as per what you would expect in a top of the range resturant - however the prices were exceedingly reasonable certainly compared to the uk. The crockery was contemporary with an artistic twist. The desert multiple choice dish is a must and the cheese board looked a sight to behold. Could`nt fault it in any way shape or form

By chance we came across the restaurant - which in fact is very centrally located. We got the table far below ground. Very cozy cellar dating back to the 13th century we were told.

The food was great and well cooked. Portions were somewhat lower than elsewhere in the city - thankfully.

Of course there is no question of a French 3 star gourmet restaurant - but the prices are very much lower.

The service is very attentive - even if it's very young girls serving.

Eat here if you want a creative meal that is a little easier than it otherwise suffered heavy Polish food - and remember you are in Poland - and enjoy the bill.
