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!

We went downstairs to the restaurant for an evening meal. (because it was the weekend we booked the day before just in case it got busy) The decor is great and makes for a nice place to sit and eat. The staff were friendly and gave advise if needed on the food and wine. We had starters, main course, sweet,... More

Visited here for lunch after a morning spent at the salt mines. Great value for money. Food is self-service (cafeteria style) - decide how many portions you want to pay for and make your selections. Pay at the till and then find a seat to enjoy simple, hearty, vegetarian fare. Amongst my family and myself, we particularly enjoyed the lentil... More

Cheap and healthy food. English-friendly staff and interesting place to have a quick lunch at salad bar and if you are up to more fancy dinner, there is a restaurant down the stairs.

We found this place by accident. Popped in for a coffee in the afternoon to the cafe upstairs. This was really busy and the food looked great. We had a look at the restaurant downstairs and it was a stunning cellar/dungeon setting. The menu looked great and prices good so went back later. So glad we did as the meal... More
