I actually thought I was booking for the sister restaurant on the bottom floor of the building, not this flashier rooftop venue, but I was not disappointed.
This is an expensive restaurant by Polish standards but very affordable and in fact cheap for the level of quality be Western European standards, two courses plus drinks coming out to about €25.
Starters were very good, good and interesting soups (though I expect this in Poland, a country where soup is taken seriously) but others were also good, especially chicken with chanterelle and mountain cheese.
The mains were all unusual and in the modern european vein, with a tilt towards sweeter flavours. My wild boar came with a sour cherry sauce that perfectly matched the gamey meat, and a colleague had a fillet steak with cinnamon that worked very well indeed, especially with earthier celeriac and onion accompaniments. Another colleague has Duck with vanilla sauce, accompanied by an Apple-potato cake, and carrots with orange. This was maybe a little too far in terms of mixing sweet and savoury for me, but again excellent prepared and presented.
Deserts were well received, and staff were very friendly. I highly recommend booking early enough in the evening to see some daylight as the view from the terrace over the Wavel castle is stunning.
