Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is one of the few Stalinist era milk bars still left in Krakow. It is always popular - queues right to the door most days - and you can see why: the food is cheap, wholesome and instantly ready. It has changed a bit...over the years; there used to be nothing at all to interest vegetarians, now there’s at least one thing! The menu, basically a list on the wall, comes now with an English translation which is helpful. It is authentic, but that also means stuffy and basically furnished. It is like eating in a works canteen, if that’s what you want on your holidays.More

I have been to Krakow many time and this restaurant is the worst so far. Restaurant was ever so dirty with fungus on the walls and not to mention the bathroom. In regards to food it’s all already pre-made food and only served and heated...up therefore it doesn’t taste fresh and prices are indeed similar to different polish restaurants in city centre where they actually make it to order. We left wishing we never ate there and I would definitely not eat there again.More

You come in. Check the board of over 50 traditional polish dishes (which are translated for those who don’t speak polish) You order at a till, and in a few minutes you are welcomed with warm, home cooked meals and a selection of hot and...cold drinks. For the money and service, you’ll be hard pushed to find a better place in Krakow for a traditional meal.More

We called in for evening meal on Sunday. The diner was not too busy with lots of tables free. Staff did not understand much English and the menu was in Polish but we managed to order our food. The portions are not massive but for...the price it was okay. Very tasty and authentic.More

My husband and I spent the last two weeks of December in Krakow. On our first day there, we decided to just walk around, explore and see what intrigues us. We were getting hungry and we came upon Bar Mleczny. I explained to my husband...what a milk bar is and he agreed to start our adventure with eating breakfast there. Not only were the prices affordable, but the food and portions were wonderful! The staff was helpful to us (two older non-speaking Polish Americans). It was a great experience to start our trip with!More

Ridiculously cheap, very genuine. Humble staple foods of the polish, nothing posh here, share a table and get down to some serious eating. Dumplings, soups, salads, just fit in with the locals.

I had lunch in this canteen/restaurant, where you can find a really wide menu, with typical dishes offered at a very low price. If you are looking for something cheap but quite good from the point of view of the quality this place is perfect...for you. For the dishes in the picture attached in this review (1 pierogi, 1 main course with meat and potatoes, the salad is included and 1 dessert) I spent around 36 zloti (€9,00).More

This is a very good experience to try local polish cuisine. The price is cheap and the food quality is ok. However, we cannot complain it at all with this budget price.
