There are a number of Karczma restaurants in Zakopane, most of which look far more eye catching from the outside and make much more of a visual impact. I visited a number of them in my recent visit to Zakopane and all performed very well....More

Been there several times and liked most of the food (of course not everything). In comperision to many others on Krupowki I'd said it is the best in this range. Each night there is live music which gives a great vibe.

We invite you to our restaurant in the centre of Krupówki street. The decor of this restaurant is based on that of the Traditional Highlander House. The wooden interior follows the pattern of the best examples of regional building of the Podhale and Orawa regions. A bar located by a lime-whitened countryside stove, with a fire-place and antique chairs create a really homely atmosphere. Inside the restaurant we can see the external wall of a house built in the style of the region of Orawa with a characteristic elements on which are pillows, buckets, barrels and plenty of other items. In a word just like in a highlander's house. At weekends, and in the summer and winter, a highlander group plays music. A speciality of our restaurant are ribs roasted with onions served on a wooden dish with sauces, roasted duck in fruit served with cranberry, potato fritters with garlic butter (moskol), lamb cutlets, and many other meats and drinks characteristic of our region. Friendly ansd professional service, unforgettable taste experiences and a unique homely atmosphere. Hej!!!
