Editor's review

Cafe Bambus is located on the ground floor of the 'Pod Baranami' palace, right on the corner of the main market square. The palace was one of Cracow's grandest aristocratic salons during the nineteenth century, and coincidentally, the old family still live on the top floor, having reclaimed the building in 1991. Bambus can be found in a string of huge vaulted rooms that look out onto the main square. It's an elegant place, and couples are fond of the little windowside booths. Much of the old grandeur can still be felt, with floral moulding spiralling across the ceiling. In summer the chairs spill out onto the square, a fine place to watch the world go by.

Really nice atmosphere, friendly waiter. Our first cocktail came quickly but then they seemed to forget about us though we were sitting close to the bar. The toilet (only one) was dirty... was the first and last time for us.

It's a decent place - happy to recommend. Like other places on the Main Square, however, it is not that cheap

I've been here a few times and have really liked it. They have a decent selection of food and drink and some comfy seating to boot!

Nice place with quite good food. Relaxed atmosphere and a good place to have a few drinks in the afternoon.
