We went to the restaurant. Nice view from the terrace but inside a bit outdated. The lower restaurant has street lights on brick tables. Doesn't sit very well and staring in the light isn't comfortable . The bar however had something charming with the 30's style (I think). The staff was very helpful and spoke english. The food was okay.

I consider Przegorzaly Castle to offer one of top 3 views Krakow can offer. It's hidden gem - living here for 30 years this is the place when I take visitors to.
Good restarant food too. Grab a coffee and enjoy the view! If you are lucky, Tatra mountains might be visible.

Nice 'castle' perched on a hill above the Wisla River with a nice café and restaurant inside. We walked through the forest from both mounds and ended up in Przegorzaly for a meal before catching a bus back to the city center. Great views above the river and nice food and coffee inside. Seems to be a popular place with Poles, there were no other foreigners there, probably being as it is off the beaten path. Check it out. I heard you can actually catch a ferry at the bottom back to the city in the summer for a nice ride on the river.

There is not only one castle in Kraków it seems :)

Przegorzały Castle, build during WW2 by the Germans as Schloss Wartenberg - a "watchtower hill" with nearby pre-war villa of Adolf Szyszko-Bohusz (stylised as medieval tower), renowned Polish architect form a surprisingly (given the Nazi German occupation history and SS stay here) very picturesque combination.

Not far away you will find the mass murder site of Glinik, where Nazis killed some 2000 Poles, mostly resistance members and intelligentsia (teachers, professors, artists). Ask your tour guide for more history.

You can view it from the bike route along Wisła River to Tyniec Benedictine Abbey (best side-trip of Kraków) or you may go up the hill for the great, romantic views (including Tatra Mountains on a clear day) and surprise surprise, brilliant, one and only Kurdish restaurant, U Ziyada, great place for dinner or even a wedding :)

It's an option for all those who have more than 3-4 days in Kraków and liek venturing less known, but no less historic and charming areas. To get there by public transportation take bus no 409 from the "Cracovia" stadium stop, which itself is located some 15 minutes away on foot from Rynek (Main Square).
