Sit down eating for lunch or just grabbing a sandwich?

High end or low end?

A Chicken or Lamb Kebab will cost you no more than 2 pounds or 3 dollars

While 12 pierogi at a peirgoi place will cost you 4 pounds or 6 dollars

If you go to a polish restaurant around Rynek that will cost more but still be reasonably priced and probably less than what you would spend at home. Starter, main dish and dessert, plus a glass of wine, plus taxes and service charge can be upwards of 25 pounds or US$40 or more. In the Jewish district I ate at an italian place which was considered pricey. For 2 appetizers, 3 beers, 2 main dishes and 1 dessert, plus tax and tiip it only cost me 40 dollars.

Beers cost the same as a kebab sandwich sometimes less

Bus tickets cost less than a beer

So you could spend as little as 10 pounds or 15 USD a day for food or as much as 35 lbs or 50 USD a day.

Krakow has a lot of fun and free things to do, so get out and walk around, its the greatest city in the world, tied with Rome in our opinion!

Being Scottish and tight with money,krakow is cheap for food and drink as long as you stay away from the tourist traps,hotel staff will recommend places where the locals eat,you can get a good meal for about 20 zloty(£4) and a pint of bear for about 5 zloty (£1)

Poland is my second home,have a good walk around and you'll find some surprisingly wonder cheap places with a friendly atmosphere and not get ripped off.

Beer wise,drink locl beer like zywiec,warka,international brands will be expensive and cost nearly double what you would pay for polish brands.

Hate when people get ripped of when travelling,just because we're visitors to another country doesn't mean we have to be cash cows,I want value for money and great service and what ever part of the world I go to,I want to see the real country without being fleeced.

Am happy to pay 5 star prices for 5 star service,there are though lots of places in krakow happy to fleece you at not care so am happy to be a stereotype so others don't get ripped off,krakow is a beautiful place,going to the correct places will show you that and leave you with stunning memories and wanting more.
