eating out on 25+ visits to Krakow since 2004; we reckon Ancora and La Fontaine in their different styles are consistently the best restaurants.
Tonight the cauliflower soup, venison and light cheesecake were super. Wines are VERY expensive, starting at PLN 100 (about GBP 20) with no half bottles. our evening enjoyment was enhanced by conversations with Lukasz our waiter who had studied in UK

My husband and I both did the 5-course tasting menu which was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was also impeccable - friendly and helpful but not overbearing. In terms of value this is one of the best meals we've had, the same experience would be twice the price in bigger cities.

Generally I am a bit reserved when it comes to expensive, original restaurants, but we decided to give Ancora a try because of the seasonal menu they offer. Goose was the special today and our both dishes were made with care and attention. The meat was excellent and the portions adequate.
We proceeded the main dish with a set of 6 Polish starters and were delighted leaving nothing behind! Definitely worth a try - check out the very last page of the menu.

Service was totally professional - a level that we could compare to the fine establishment we tried in Germany for example - still so rare in our beautiful country - Poland.

Yes - leaves you with 60Euros + for a 2-dish meal and wine, but definitely worth a try - especially with the excellent change of menus they offer.

This was definitely our best meal during 9 days in Poland. The restaurant is close to the main square, but far enough away to avoid the crowds. The dining rooms are simple, spacious, and modern. The service was impeccable. But what makes Ancora so memorable is the food. Each dish was carefully crafted and delicious. Highlights of our meal included the duck breast with crunchy buckwheat (Kasza), the duck leg sous vide, and the black pudding. The desserts we tried (the layered toffee pancakes and the cheesecake) were also outstanding.

No doubt one of the very best restaurants in Krakow. Continental style; for Polish there is Pod Baranem and others. Dropped in by myself, and was very pleasantly surprised. Looking forward to a more romantic experience next time, which is something this place calls for.
