Also, check out the homemade flavoured vodkas they have if you want the night to include a bit of a buzz.

Mamma Mia

If Italian is your thing then Mamma Mia do it right. Book ahead if you want a good table as the place is often packed – which is no surprise given the delicious range of pastas, pizzas and other snacks available at this place. The wine list is equally as impressive and the staff are on hand to ensure a good meal and a warm welcome to Krakow.

Milkbar Tomasza

You can’t come to Krakow and not go for the authentic Polish milkbar experience. These were the canteens that used to feed workers day in and day out during socialist times. Think no frills surroundings and a simple-yet-tasty menu.

Today many milkbars have survived, and even thrived, sticking to the simple, but now attracting people from all walks of life and plenty of tourists. Milkbar Tomasza is one such place, tucked away in Krakow’s Old Town

Scandale Royal

If you’d like to sip some fancy cocktails and take in the atmosphere around Szczepański Square, then Scandale Royal is the place for you. Other that the aforementioned beverages, the food is unpretentious and tasty (the breakfast comes particularly recommended) and the interior is cosy meets classy.

Restauracja Pino

If Mediterranean is a must then check out Restauracja Pino. It’s raved about for its stylish comfy interior and the menu is packed with tasty things like duck sous vide with sweet potato puree and ribs in tomato and honey sauce.
