“Unbelievable value”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Went with my partner for lunch before heading off for a flight. Had read about this restaurant being very good and was recommended to go here. It is on the outskirts of the old town. Bizarrely this place always seems to look closed with no board out the front and no open door but, evidently it was...

We had a polish style tapas consisting of 6 dishes and drinks. The food was superb, very enjoyable. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Just a shame it wasn't busier.

All in this came to 48 zł (equating to around £10). Fantastic value with super food which you would pay many times more for elsewhere.

Would recommend this restaurant!

“Superb!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Situated only a few minutes walk from the main square, Ancora is an excellent choice for fine dining.

Attentive but not intrusive service, and an excellent choice of food and wines. My choice of food lived up to the description, and every mouthful was superb! I do not normally have a desert, but the menu looked so appetising that I just had to try one!!! And it was delicious!

I recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

“Pressure”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Nice restaurant in two floors with walking distance from market sg. Fine dining but this time pressure in kitchen was maybe too much. Place was pretty full this evening - might have some influence. Maturity was not proper in main course and cucumber/vodka side dish didn´t work out. But facilities and staff were OK.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

This restaurant is in Old Town, but could easily have been transplanted from Napa California. It offers world class cuisine blending different tastes into unexpected but excellent offerings. There are five or seven course tasting menus, but we chose to order from the seasonal menu. If they still have it, try the rosemary creme brulee for dessert, a new twist on a classic dessert. Although relatively high priced for Krakow, you can order a main plate, dessert and glass of wine for around 20 to 25 Euros per person. The restaurant is open for lunch as well as for dinner.

Another fantastic meal in Ancora. This restaurant is still my favourite, anywhere. It would encourage me to come back to Krakow.
