“Very good food in the old town”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

The reataurant is hidden away in the old town. Did not have to high expectations at first, but was amazed by the quality of the food and by the helpfulness of the staff. Would come again!

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

In the heart of the old city , Sekret , was a very well kept secret on this Friday evening. In the beautifully restored cellars we were the only diners but it did not matter, the food , good traditional polish recipes, was excellent and plentiful and the waiter attentive and friendly. We especially liked the way the wine was presented. A good selection of wine was bought to the table and he offered to let us taste a few before we decided. We were reasonable, we went for the first white we tasted and then the first red.
Go to Sekret but maybe don't tell too many people about it , it is a good secret

“Fantastic meal, fantastic atmosphere...”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We actually discovered this hotel through our travel guide, proposing it as one of the must visit in the city.
Reaching there, we were a bit relactant to enter, as the restaurant is actually underground but going in, we found an amazing place with a decoration never seen before.
We were the only couple in the place, so we were treated accordingly.
The selection of meals is not that big, meaning that they are offering frew dishes that obviously they are the best.
As a appetizer they served us bread with a spread of nuts and something Polish that really could not figure out with certainity what was in there...Was just ok.
We ordered as first dish salmon with Caviar and was really tastefull, while our main course of deer ragou, and pork sirloine with pourre was really a surprise.
Very well presented dishes and really tasteful. We accompanied our food with a glass of red wine.

“Food Great! Decor dazzling!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

This was one of the best restaurants we ate at during our 2 weeks in Gdansk, Warsaw, & Krakow. We were initially reluctant to eat in a restaurant in a basement until our private guide recommended Sekret and explained that many restaurants are in the basements now although they were at street levels hundreds of years ago. We went down into the restaurant and were immediately dazzled by the decor. Fresco paintings on every wall surface of the multiple sitting rooms. Just spectacular. We picked the room in which we wanted to sit and proceeded to an outstanding meal with solicitous service. Try the pork knuckle. It is authentic Polish cuisine and it is great. Our waiter explained the cooking process, nearly a day long, and said to make sure we tasted crust on the skin. We did and oh, so good. Salad with egg & bacon was delightful too. A bit of a surprise but wonderful flavors. At the end, our waiter brought complementary vodkas made from pigwa (quince). Sweet, kind of like a sherry. And then he surprised us with 2 more vodkas each to taste. One was from horseradish. Not our favorite but fun to try. I would go back to this restaurant again. It is right off the square in old town and the restaurants on the square itself were a bit touristy.
