A few years back vegetarian bars were rather thin on the ground in Cracow. But recently things have taken off, and this one, Smaki Swiata, 'Tastes of the World' offers just that, laying on dishes from half a dozen different countries from India to Mexico. Dinner is served on rather splendid silver platters, and the waitresses arrive dressed in charming Maid Marian outfits - you could well imagine them dancing round a bonfire at a solstice festival. Upstairs you might be lucky and grab a table with a fine view of the Slowacki Theatre whilst downstairs in the cellars you are spoilt for choice as there is a veritable labyrinth of rooms, all decked out with Indian wooden carvings. Friendly service.

Central location and large selection of dishes. The food was good but the service was dismally slow on a night when the restaurant wasn't even busy.

One of the best vegetarian bars in Krakow. Really. Although they don't have selected vegan dishes - most of them are lacto-veg. You simply have to ask about the ingredients but for me it doesn't matter as I'm a lacto-ovo and think that their samosas are THE BEST I've ever tried. The spring rolls are also a must and for me they bring back some memories - of the first Chinese restaurant in Krakow, in the courtyard F*ckDonalds now occupies. I was five or six back then and each day a Chinese couple - man and woman - would sell fried bananas and spring rolls with very similiarly tasting wrapping - none of the rice paper they now use literally everywhere. Not that I hate it, but one can really get fed up...
oh, and one more thing, by the way... the spring rolls (or Nem Saigon, as they call them) everywhere else in Krakow contain MEAT...
