Szara: Good local food plus international
The restaurant is at the Market Square of the Old Town. They serve traditional Polish food plus fish, salad and other items. Its a nice classic atmosphere. If you book the a window side table, you can also enjoy the nice view of the Market square.
Favorite Dish: local food plus international.
Szara: Good, but expensive food
Restaurant is right on the Market Square and as it was a nice sunny day, we decided to eat outside on the terrace, so can't say anything of the interior. The service was good and quick, we were a group of 12 and they organized a long table for all of us.
Favorite Dish: Not really my favourite dish, but we all had creamy mushroom soup for starters. I usually don't like mushrooms at all, but I must admit that the soup was really tasty! For main course we had plank steak with duchette potatos, which was a bit too greasy for me, but others in my group enjoyed it. For dessert we had vanilla ice cream with whipped cream and fresh strawberries - delicious!
Szara Kazimierz: excellent service and food
Would you buy a bouillabaisse in a Polish restaurant? Well, maybe not if you were from Marseilles, but it was an excellent one nonetheless - the Poles do understand soups.
Everything else was good too, though be warned that the smoked salmon is more starter than main dish. We sat in a very restful garden, as it was a balmy night, but the interior looked equally inviting. The staff were very friendly, efficient, and good with the kids.
Favorite Dish: Bouillabaisse! The salmon was also good.
Szara: Disappointing in Krakow
This is a very impressive restaurant when you walk in. Lovely room right on the town square. We expected high prices and got them (Krakow high prices). The meal was presented beautifully but let down comepletely because it was not hot. The plates were cold and the meal was warm. Service was indifferent - bit of an attitude - we're a great restaurant and you are lucky we let you eat here style. Not recommended. (march 24th)
Favorite Dish: All the food was good but cold or warm.
SZARA Restaurant: Somewhat contradictory inside...
Very nice old interior (look at the ceiling there!) in the main lounge but the modern kitsch pictures on the walls are like from a completely different story. At least you have something to stare at when waiting for your meal ;-)
The cook is a Swedish guy and he certainly knows what he's doing! I had veal medalions and they were delicious. Tiramisu was a bit of a dissapointment though...
The other lounge is a nice bar/cafe that opens already at 8:00 am and serves coffee and breakfasts.
Their recommended house cocktail is Szarakiri... cute name but I chose wine. Maybe next time, ey? ;-)
