What a place! It's so quirky and cool - the food is absolutely amazing, I'm a veggie and fussy too. It has a smoking area which is good. We was only in Poland for 3 days and we ate there twice. Fabulous place to go and extremely cheap!

Lovely hour or so spent here. As has been said you only get glimpses of candlelight from the outside , it has too halves bar and restaurant . Worth finding the self service bar but it is dark insight : we loved it !

This place has a magical quality, you can eat there, but for me it's more of a bar. Its a dark, candle lit interior, with a fantastic vibe. It has a ramshackle feel, it's difficult to find as it's poorly signed, but find it and go, you won't regret it

Another recommended bar to visit on trip advisor, glad we found this place in kazimerz, from the outside looks like its falling down, but very quaint inside, hard to describe this place , ( brilliant comes to mind ) an experience, very busy bar, also packed with locals, a in-place with students late evening, but worth checking out if you...

Alchemia is in two parts, a bar and a restaurant, we visited the restaurant half tonight and had a wonderful evening. Loads of veggie options but plenty for meat eaters too. I had the goulash which was peppery and really tasty, my wife had a falafel and haloumi burger which she really enjoyed. Great attentive service and at the end... More

We were recommended to go here by a friend. A hidden gem with a lot of character and a brilliant atmosphere. We could have sat here for hours.

Super pub / restaurant . Very lucky to get a table. Can't comment on the food as didn't have any but definitely a reasonably priced and atmospheric place for a couple of well priced beers. Could have stayed all day!!

Heard some good reports about this bar, so decided to give it a try. Took some finding, because from the outside just looks run down. But once you get inside the decor is very rustic, we had a great evening, so also decided to eat here. The food was great, would also recommend the meze sharing platter to start with....
