Where to eat while in Cracow?
Cracow is truly open to tourism. You will find hundreds of restaurants and cafes here. Regardless of your budget, you will surely find a place that will offer you decent food in a reasonable price. You can choose from several milk bars where the typical price of a meal is equal to 2-3 E…or you can go to a fancy restaurant.
Gourmets feeling like eating sushi, Indian, Mexican, Latvian, Georgian, and fusion food will find something tasty in Cracow as well. The city does not forget about the lovers of traditional Polish food. If you are in Poland for the first time, we highly recommend visiting a typically Polish restaurant or bar, especially the one, where waiters wear traditional national outfits.
You may also decide to go to one of numerous wine-bars, ale-houses, or places where customers can order traditional liquors made and stored at the site.
The majority of such establishments do have toilets.
In many restaurants around the town, there is no need to book a table, unless you try to stay in a fancy local on an unusual date, like 14th of February.
Tips in restaurants
Tips are usually not a part of the order and if you would like to tip the waiter, the typical value is 10 % of the order.
In some cafes and bars, there are additional jars where you can put your spare change.
Restaurants are mainly open from 11 A.M. to 11-12 P.M. Wine-bars and pubs are open till the last guest leaves.
In the majority of the discussed places, you will be able to pay via credit card, but then you will have no possibility of giving the waiter a tip. It is always advised to have few Zlotys on you to give to the waiter.
Restaurants situated in the Kazimierz and Old Town areas are exceptionally atmospheric. Some of them are located in basements, old housing units, and are surrounded with stunning gardens.
Sometimes, bars and restaurants are worth visiting mainly due to their design, not the food that is served there.
