We were sightseeing and popped over to have a snack. What you see is what you get! Don't expect any more than you would in England apart from that you can get beer with your snack. Worth the money, dining in such beautiful surroundings.

Nice small selection of refreshments, reasonably priced and pleasant staff. Was a very cold day and the hot chocolate was very thick and bitter rather than the warm sweet drink expected, but was good quality just not to everyone's taste

By no means did we expect this restaurant to be as good as it was. Servers are fluent in english and friendly. It looks like hamburger place, but it serves delicious Polish soups and delicacies, it has a terrace in the back of the main entrance with a partial view of the town.

Our guide recommended we ate lunch her during our tour of the castle. This is not your typical tourist attraction cafe that we have in the UK. The sun was shinning so we decide to sit outside and enjoy the views. The menu was comprehensive with sometime for everyone. The food was of a really good quality, good price and... More

Miserable, unhelpful server. Food was mediocre. Nice view, though, and much needed refuel after 5 miles of walking beforehand.

Really nice setting with a good view. Was happy to see they did a vegan, cheeseless pizza (which was very tasty!). Only issue was that the service was slow and we had to ask for things a few times.

Sitting outside enjoying the view and being served roasted vegetables and assorted bruschettas was very pleasant. The waitress was very helpful and jolly. Good for lunch.

Tucked inside Wawel Royal Castle, the cafe and restaurant are a welcomed respite from the crowds. We did not eat here, but opted for coffee, water and beer with a stunning backdrop. I would say half the tables were similar that no food was purchased, but everyone took the opportunity to unwind with a cool beverage in hand. Prices were... More

The food is well prepared tasty and suitable for lunch. It was not heavy and had an Italian influence.The staff were charming and attentive. Only problem we had inside was the cool wind when the doors were open.
