Editor's review

Nic Nowego (Nothing New) is a rather smart and comfortable modern Irish pub, beautifully appointed and with rather a refined and friendly atmosphere. The owner, who is from Ireland, can often be found here and is welcoming in a way only the Irish can be. The barman, who speaks English, mixes up a wicked array of drinks, and naturally there are a number of Irish ales as well. Open from 7 am until the last guest leaves, Nic Nowego also has a photo and art gallery, and a varied menu offering everything from an Irish breakfast(!) to seafood. With the recent addition of WiFi internet access, Nic Nowego is popular with visitors, students and businesspeople, making it well worth a visit.

I also tried the burger here yesterday. It was no more than OK - overcooked and dry. The food used to be a lot better here. I still want to like Nic Nowego, because the food was terrific a couple of years ago, but now seems to be slipping. Come on guys!

I love the salads here, and it is very hard to find a good lettuce salad in Poland. It's my favorite bar in Kracow, but I like to relax, have service in English, and have a nice solid meal. Now, here's a tip for the guys, and Americans used to a lot of smiley service. Polish people don't smile if they are not overwhelmingly happy, it's simply not in the culture. So if your beautiful waitress is not hanging on every word you say, and has a blank expression, don't take it personally. One of the reasons I love Poland. If you want ridiculously enthusiastic service, come to America and go to T.I. Fridays.

strange mix for an irish bar and to be honest i dont think it works,food was only allright and i dont think they wanted to cater for a few irish guys who just wanted to chill out and have a beer.maybe aimed for a more upmarket crowd

They dont play any Irish music, their hospitality is the poorest ever ive had a better welcome at ibrox!!!!!!!!!!! Irish people and Irish pubs is what makes my holidays the best but not in there i would have givin it a 0/5 but alas it had to b a 1/5 if you dont take my advice take rennies with you! you will thank me

I've always had great service and good food at Nic Nowego. Perhaps the choice of modern decor, large windows and outside seating implies a lack of authentic Irish grit to some. But, the food and beer are tasty.

You're right David. You're totally entitled to your opinion. We'll have to agree to disagree. I've been coming here for years, and spent a large part of my stag do in there, as well as many other unforgettable (or is that forgettable?) nights there! Next time you're in Krakow I guess you'll have to try the other 'Irish bars', of which I myself am not the biggest fan!

David, are you sure you went to the right bar? Nic Nowego is a legend in it's own right! This place is not a restaurant and has never said it was so what sort of menu do you expect? The food you'll find, if you tried it, is fantastic! The owner is a chef himself, and there's not a bad thing on there. All good wholesome food. As for the staff, they all speak English, what's the problem? You're in Poland mate! Why don't you try a bit of the local lingo?! Not busy? When were you there? It's always busy! Love this place, and long may it remain in this beautiful city!

Just had poached eggs here (with bacon and spinach). Last time I had it, they were delicious. However, this time the cook decided to use WAY too much vinegar for poaching the eggs. A skilled cook does not need to use any vinegar for a good poached egg, and this was just too much - my eggs tasted disgusting and it affected the rest of the food in the plate as well. Don't order this dish!

I think it's safe to say that I am now a regular at Nic Nowego! A bar which in my opinion is way ahead of it's competition in Krakow. Whether you're looking for a bar/cafe or a place to eat some good, reasonably priced food, then this is the place in Krakow. I recently had the poached eggs, after the owner Tom, recommended them and true to his word, they were great! Thanks Tom!
