Even though we were at the restaurant on a mid-week evening, it was packed to the brim with people. Fortunately, we didn't have to wait too long for a table and were seated in the glassed-in terrace. The large inside dining rooms were decorated in the beer hall style. There was live noisy music, rather loud but supportable! Everyone seemed... More

Great restaurant to visit, you need a huge appetite though :) Nice atmosphere, with a small band, playing in different areas of the restaurant, they moved from area to are, with violin, bass and an accordian, great music. We both had the Hungarian soup to start, very nice (different to the soup we had in Hungary but still nice) For... More

I wasn't overly impressed with this restaurant. It's very busy and you can expect to wait to get in. The portions are quite large, however, the food is only okay. There are much better places to eat in Kraków.

We stumbled across this authentic Polish restaurant in a superb medieval setting. The food and service werr excellent where we thought we had entered the elite dining experience of the Kraków foodies. The setting in a 13th Century cellar was incredible. A must!

We went to this restaurant on our last night in Krakow having read many good things about it. It's a very large restaurant, but we were served very quickly in the beginning. We shared a starter, the meat pierogi, which were very tasty and one portion was more than enough for both to start with. Our mains came shortly afterwards... More

Thumbs up! Both food and service is amazing. I visited last year with a few friends and we were all satisfied. We ended our holiday at this restaurant and we were definitely not disappointed.

Unfortunately we did not enjoy this restaurant. It is very large and noisy. It took ten minutes for anyone to come and ask if we would like drinks and then our main came while we were still eating our starter. We shared a pork knuckle which was huge and quite tasty but very, very greasy and we could only manage... More
