Despite the reviews, we were passing on Valentine's day and called in on the off chance we could get a seat because it was so well reviewed. Found it to be practically empty. I had the pork and my girlfriend had the vegetarian option of roasted vegetables. Cannot fault the food at all, absolutely delicious. Only drawback was the service... More

We visited this restaurant purely based on the fact it was traditional polish and it was rated no 1 in Krakow. We loved the cozy semi casual atmosphere. The waiting staff were super friendly and attentive. The food was really really good but portions were just a little big for me, my partner was happy though. We sat down for... More

Wow!! The online reviews don't lie. Had an amazing meal and more importantly wasn't made to feel bad for dining on my own. Food and vodka amazing! Had the prunes wrapped in bacon and the pork sirloin - both excellent. Had to try the raspberry vodka and then also given another home made vodka free. Can thoroughly recommend.

The food in here was fantastic! We had to book before coming to krakow and we're so glad we did as whilst eating here they turned a lot of people away and it was busy all the time! I had the pork stuffed with apricot and wrapped in bacon with sheeps cheese, cranberries, vegetables and more, it was one of... More

Visited last night and we were all amazed at the quality of the food, great service and how ridiculously cheap it was. Four of us had three courses, wine and beer with the meal and rather too much vodka afterwards. Total bill was less than £70. An excellent live singer just added to the great experience. Try this place, you... More

I booked this restaurant after reading reviews on trip adviser. I was not disappointed. I booked a table by e-mail and quickly got a reply to confirm my booking. The food and ambience was amazing! I had duck, and my husband had steak. Both dishes were beautifully cooked. We both had 2 cocktails and desserts. I cant remember the total... More

We managed to get a table on a Tuesday evening (we just walked in). They told us we could have a table until 8.30, so we jumped at it! As the reviews are so good on TA, we really wanted to give it a try! Food was just as good as the reviews, and service was perfect. I had for... More

Such an amazing restaurant, the food was extremely tasty and presentation was outstanding! My partner and I had a starter each and a main, and alongside beers it came to only 25 Euros so amazing value for money. In most other European countries a main of that standard would cost 25 Euros by itself. You really must go!
