In the 14th century cellar is a fine restaurant with, for Krakow, a little bit high prices but is definitely good price/quality ratio. I eat duck breast in cherry sauce and dish was excellent!

We visited for lunch while in Krakow. The food was lovely and well priced. You basically choose the size of your plate and then pick dishes accordingly. Plate will either hold 4 or 6 dishes. We opted for 4 dishes each which was plenty and meant that between us we could sample 8 dishes total. It was nice sheltering in... More

I picked this retaurant initially after review, looking for a really inexpensive meal, as a challenge. (Krakow is an inexpensive city to visit, and many meals can be had at a good price). We had the buffet, 4 items, bread, + a beer and it was $11.50 for 2 people. The variety was good, dessert was extra, it is in... More

We loved Chimera, a very inexpensive self-service milkbar. The food was plentiful and very very tasty and it was extremely cheap! For 15€ for two people we had so much very good food that it was hard to move :))...the place itself is very nice as well, cozy and boho-romantic. The downstairs restaurant had quite high prices for Krakow, with... More

This place has charm in abundance, a great selection of recommended polish dishes at great prices, a vodka list that would make the tsar of Russia jealous; all set in an atmospheric 14th century cellar. Went as a couple and had an amazing waitress who couldn't have been nicer!

A great place to get a feel for traditional polish cuisine. Super reasonably priced too. Cornflake chicken is a must try!

I visit this place each time I am in krakow. One of my fav for a healthy lunch. Good value for money. Fantastic range of options of fresh salads, freshly made juices, and home-made cakes. Hot buffet, with a bit smaller selection, also there for you. Has a nice upper floor with a couple of tables, cosy and special. Highly... More

This restaurant was recommended to be by the Krakow Tourist Information Office (which I had visited that afternoon). I was not disappointed. I tried downstairs first - but it was empty and there was more of a "buzz" upstairs (self-service - and quite a bit cheaper). Caters well for vegetarians. The chicken, coated with cornflakes, was very tasty as were... More

Lovely setting, great atmosphere, super food and unbelievably low prices. We paid less than £14 for the three of us and that included loads of wine!
