We had our final meal here after getting the hotel to book us a table in advance - this wasn't actually necessary in the end due to it being a Sunday. We ordered two of the fruit beers (orange and grapefruit) which were different and refreshing. We both chose the mutton goulash which was delicious. The service was fast but... More

I visited with friends at the start of a rainy evening. The menu was uncomplicated and the staff were very helpful, with the waitress recommending the apple tart dessert while selecting our main, as it is made to order. I had a hearty beef goulash which had plenty of meat and was served with warm crusty bread. For dessert I... More

This place is tucked away beside a renovated church. During our 5 day stay in Krakow we visited 3 times and apparently the menu changes every second day. Very good place to have breakfast and the duck is just superb for lunch. Very reasonably priced compared to the Main Square. I really recommend this restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

We had dinner here on Monday June 27 2016. The food was absolutely delicious. We had the breaded Camembert starter which was served with salad and berries and was gorgeous. The pasta dishes were also wonderful as was the apple tart for dessert which was made freshly. There is a wait of about 20 minutes as a result but it... More

This is away from the main square and has nice outdoor seating. Food was average, my pasta with chicken and sun dried tomatoes turned out to contain hot chilli (not mentioned on the menu) which spoiled the enjoyment, but livened up an otherwise bland dish. Didn't enjoy the orange and grapefruit beer either, which was supposedly on tap, but tasted... More

Stumbled across the place and found the food to be fabulous. Sea bream salad included piping hot grilled fish, grilled courgettes, anchovies, said, tomatoes, and a beautiful poached egg on the top. Hubby had spaghetti carbonara. Red wine was very smooth in an enormous glass. So hot fresh bread, 2 main courses, wine and 2 soft drinks was about £14.... More

Fantastic friendly service, lovely atmosphere, the best meal we have had in Kraków and not at all expensive!! The apple desert is 'to die for' - brilliant chef. If you are in Kraków make sure to pay it a visit.

Just off the main square. We were a bit doubtful walking in as there was only one other table taken which would normally put us off. So glad we stayed as we got the most amazing personal service and the food was just amazing. Our server , sorry I forgot his name, was great advising us on the food and... More

Just several steps from the Main Market Square, in a picturesque so called Doubting Thomas Niche, right by the corner of St. Thomas and st. John's streets there is a house number fifteen with spacious rooms hidden inside. This is Magnes. A huge grill heated with beech standing by massive wooden tables and young artist's paintings on the walls create a warm atmosphere. Big space delicately lit with hand made decorative glass lamps seems light. Ideal place to dine with friends, see in for a relaxing lunch or a cup of coffee, arrange a business meeting in a far corner of the restaurant, a party or a wedding.
