Fortunately we had booked in advance as it was very busy with a constant stream of visitors looking for a table. The service, food, wine and value were excellent. The only reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is that despite having air conditioning it...More

Despite the restaurant being almost fully booked, and me calling the day before, they managed to fit us in at the last minute, which was great. The restaurant is busy, the food was delicious, from the tasty starters to mains, and lets not forget the...More

Full on the first night we tried to get in so we booked a table for the next night. Great atmosphere and friendly service. Pierogi were very tasty, both meat and Russian varieties. Beef rolls with dumplings and red cabbage was delicious.

We stayed in Krakow for 4 nights in June and this was the best restaurant we had dinner in. Advisable to book ahead and if there is live music request a table towards the back.

We ordered barszcz (borsch) and chicken with veg. My partner loved the chicken however borsch was a bit tasteless. The decor is grand however slightly too dark.

Very good typical food, in particular duck breast and salmon. A beautiful location in the jewish quarter near the main street.

Very good Polish restaurant. Loved the food: pirogies, steak salad, sour soup and grilled chicken with vegetables. Save space for the fruit tart. Fast service and reasonable prices.
