Description: Karczma Halit opened 18 years ago found a seat in the house boasting a documented history of over 370 years old. The oldest map of Wieliczka from 1638 of Marcin German's plan building is shown with the notation ,,Andruszkowskie". The fate of the buildings, as evidenced by the following maps and plans was quite dramatic - it affected the collapse of the chamber, "Kręciny" in 1744, now clearly visible reduction in the area and fire around the year 1820. The current shape of the building was given at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The unique atmosphere of the place and proximity mines provoked the decision to open an inn in this place. Restored by the new owner welcomes all visitors and residents their motto. ,, Your responsibility is to be hungry and thirsty - Our job is to fix this " You can taste great traditional Polish cuisine and hospitality it's the best. Karczma Halit is a unique atmosphere. We organize parties, weddings, company banquets, catering, and meals for groups of domestic and foreign. We offer 170 seats in two halls. Karczma Halit attraction is dinner with folklore [Polka Party). The specialty of the inn is a traditional Polish and Polish cuisine at its best.

Reviewed April 22, 2014

Wieliczka Salt Mines are one of the main attractions in Krakow area and this homely restaurant is located other side of the road of the main entrance, so convenient Place and easy to get. They serve local rustic food, which was real tasty and reasonably priced. Service was fast and they understood English pretty well. Worth of visit, because you don't want to go hungry to 2hrs Salt Mines tour.

“you don't have to go too far for a reasonable meal”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

we chose to have lunch in this restaurant after our tour. it seemed to be a better choice than the hotel grand restaurant in terms of budget. although we didn't really try to check that out.

it's situated just right outside the gates of the salt mine. i think they have good prices and i liked their mushroom soup in the bread bowl. but i didn't care much for the ribs. it was a bit too fatty and the barbecue sauce was a bit salty (no pun intended). but it wasn't bad overall.

the food also didn't take too long to arrive eventhough there was a big tourist group at the same time.

“Excellent food and price.”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Very good food with a good selection to choose from. Our vegetarian friend had the mushroom soup in a bread bowl that was great! The other 5 of us had various meat dishes that were polish greats. Topped off at a good price, I would heartily recommend this restaurant. I didn't feel it was a tourist trap at all, rather a hidden gem.

“Someting missing”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

The food was okaybut nothing special. It felt like one of those turist places that don't need to perform 100% because they don't have returning costumers.
