I visited Krakow in October 16 during a music festival and had plenty of time to explore and enjoy the city. I fell immediately in love with this bar, they have an amazing collection of good spirits and tea, however I did not try the food. A very young and vibrant atmosphere spent a lot of time here during my... More

My Son and I stumbled across this Bar/Restaurant in the heart of the Jewish Quarter in Krakow - Marta was behind the bar doing a great job and couldn't help enough - we just had drinks but there is a menu with polish specialities at reasonable prices - would certainly recommend adding this address onto your visit - well worth...

Probably the best bar in the Kazimierz district. Good drinks, good music and a good vibe. There's also a smoking area. I'll come back, for sure.

What a place! It's so quirky and cool - the food is absolutely amazing, I'm a veggie and fussy too. It has a smoking area which is good. We was only in Poland for 3 days and we ate there twice. Fabulous place to go and extremely cheap!

Lovely hour or so spent here. As has been said you only get glimpses of candlelight from the outside , it has too halves bar and restaurant . Worth finding the self service bar but it is dark insight : we loved it !

This place has a magical quality, you can eat there, but for me it's more of a bar. Its a dark, candle lit interior, with a fantastic vibe. It has a ramshackle feel, it's difficult to find as it's poorly signed, but find it and go, you won't regret it

Another recommended bar to visit on trip advisor, glad we found this place in kazimerz, from the outside looks like its falling down, but very quaint inside, hard to describe this place , ( brilliant comes to mind ) an experience, very busy bar, also packed with locals, a in-place with students late evening, but worth checking out if you...

Alchemia is in two parts, a bar and a restaurant, we visited the restaurant half tonight and had a wonderful evening. Loads of veggie options but plenty for meat eaters too. I had the goulash which was peppery and really tasty, my wife had a falafel and haloumi burger which she really enjoyed. Great attentive service and at the end... More
