Cracovians love Zakopane, the ski resort in the Tatra mountains, but if they can't make it there for the weekend, can often be found in this restaurant, tucking into healthy proportions of Polish fare, and listening to live "mountain folk" music, an invigorating mixture that will put you in truly thigh-slapping "Sound of Music" mode. Don't be put off by the small-looking entrance - downstairs is a cavernous cellar fitted out with rustic wooden tables and a miniature waterfall that will keep the children amused for minutes. A goodie.

Feel like sharing?
Can be hard to find. It's on the square on Plac Szczepanski (not the Polish restaurant next to Scandale Royal), small fronted with some tables outside but ask to be seated downstairs for a traditional Polish feel. All food excellent, we had soup and stew for starters with a platter of mixed meats for 2 excellent value at 56 zloty. Total of just over 400 zloty for 4 but half of that was for 4 bottles of very good Georgian (Tiblisi Red) wine. Would visit again and recommend to anyone
Brought my teenagers here to give them a 'taste' of Poland. Dancing was cancelled due to death of Polish president but the atmosphere was still great. Polish businessmen playing a board game on next table! Polish fare was good, staff very helpful, but meat disappointing - still, the quality of the food was not the reason I chose this restaurant so for general atmosphere and fun, this is great!
What a find! Such a sweet place. Traditional dancing on Mondays and Sundays, wooden floor, walls and tables, waterfall and great service. Wine is really good here and reasonable. Sauces a bit lame, but the steak was great. Recommended as a great early evening place to eat or drink
My only complaint about this place seems to resonate with the reviews below - really slow service. We ordered our food and it was a good half hour before it came - even the beer took like 10 minutes - and the place was not that full. Otherwise, the food is quite good and the prices are very reasonable, just a little more than milk bar prices. If come here, order a starter, since you'll be waiting for your main anyway!
This was the first Restaurant we visited in Krakow and we found it fairly disappointing. Service was slow hit & miss; my bigos, a Polish staple, was watery & tasteless, but Lynne's Placki was good. We found the restaurant lacking in atmosphere but it was very quiet when we visited (well apart from the loud Americans on the next table.....)
Very reasonably priced, though, about £18.00 for three.
