Nice, but a bit overcrowded place. Food is good, but not exceptional or significantly better than in other Krakow restaurants. Home made vodka for digestive is great :)

We took note of all the advice to reserve and were asked to come early to beat a large party. Sensible advice but I didn't see a big group arrive. Maybe just a good way of turning the tables twice.. cynical I know! They also tried to place us at the worst table in the place, next to the fridge... More

We tried to get in on the Saturday night but without luck so booked for the Monday night which was just as busy. The food was out of this world and the service excellent. All... More

We decided to eat here because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor and also because we wanted to try some traditional Polish food. Needless to say, we weren't disappointed and if you get the chance then it's definitely worth taking the time out to try this restaurant. I had the lamb with beetroot and pear, and whilst at first glance... More
