The place is indeed visited by a lot of people. At the entrance, you have to stay like 5-10 minutes until a table gets free, but the waiting is worth it. As a suggestion, it's better to take a reservation before you get to the restaurant.
The atmosphere is very nice, despite the fact that it is very crowdie, you can feel very comfortable.
The dishes are delightful and appetizing, I ate barbeque ribs in honey sauce with walnuts, totally recommend it.
The staff is very friendly, they also give you a home made cherry liqueur before you leave.
The toilets were not so clean perhaps they didn't face such a lot of people that day, although it is not an excuse.

This was a bizarre experience, around 6pm on a Friday evening.

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children, aged 2 and 3. It was pretty busy when we got there but nevertheless we were escorted to a dark corner, under some stairs and then ignored until we walked out in disgust.

I kid you not, the waitress was servicing a nearby table and shrugged us off when we tried to get her attention.

No one even looked at us as we walked out, it was like we were invisible, as I previously said, a most bizarre experience, I don't know where to start with my questions....

I came in the summer to this restaurant which was lovely with the views of the castle. Revisited this December and the restaurant was equally as beautiful but this time Christmassy and festive. The band has played both times I have visited which is lovely as it gives a bit of background music and entertainment but is not overpowering or too loud you can not have a conversation! The food is lovely and very big portions for very low prices! Initial waitress did not speak very good English (which is not her fault) so avoided us a little bit but once another waiter took over they could not do enough for us, very accommodating!

If you are very hungry and like a busy, noisy place, Pod Wawelem is good. Prices low and portions huge, although food is unrefined and service pretty hectic. Quite a long wait for first course, and we hadn't finished that when the mains arrived. Nice draft beers. You need either to book or to queue for a table.

Just back from a 3 night stay here, rooms are lovely modern and clean with views of the Vistula river and Wawel castle.

The food presentation from the restaurants was very well presented and tasty along with the spectacular views.

This hotel in located just beside Wawel castle and the Vistula river and, the tour buses where also across the road about a 1 minute walk.

Try the lemon or cherry vodka and the Polish cuisine here!!

Highly recommend this hotel for couples, families and business it was homely and friendly.
