Visited this great bar on two occasions enjoying good beer and food at a great price! The following morning my son realised he had lost his bag! We went back to the Alchemia and they had very kindly put it aside for us. Thank you! Sit outside to get a good view of people passing by around the Jewish quarter.

What I liked most about this restaurant is that it had great character and lots of atmosphere. Each room is decorated in a different way, and the menu offers a diverse range of options for casual meals. Our favourite choices were the salami pretzel and the hummus platter. Portions are very generous, but the price is right!

Really impressed with the clean-cut and trendy decor, as well as the interesting menu and variety of drinks - both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Our server was very friendly and approachable, and it was a pleasant visit for a coffee and cake.

Krakow is a lovely city with a huge range of great cafes, bars and restaurants - Alchemia od kuchnia is not one of them. Just another wannabe-hippster-spot with boring food and unfriendly stuff.

Located in the Kazimierz, the Alchemia offers around 4 separate rooms with one for eating and a small outside area on the pavement. Friendly service, wifi, good selection of drinks and worth a visit when in Krakow.

This place is trendy, and still has such a great atmosphere! The interior is charming. Food offering is nice, and selection of drinks is satisfactory as well.

This bar seems really popular between locals as well as tourists. They've got several rooms where you can sit down. They also accept payment with card The only downside is that waiters are really slow serving we visited it twice the 1st time a Saturday night which could be understandable but second time it was nearly empty and still it...

Busy and rightfully so but the three of us still got a seat (here now). Not a huge selection of drinks but everything you would need. Good atmosphere and music that would suit everyone

Good music, meeting place of locals, food (like huge bruschettas) can be bought at the stalls in the square nearby and brought into the pub till late at night.
