Pod Aniolami Tips (12)

Pod Aniolami: Great Resaurant, Great Food

Pod Aniolami (Under the angels), We read about this restaurant on Virtual Tourist and reserved a table on their web site before we went to Krakow and we where not disappointed, the food was fantastic. The restaurant had a very medieval look and feel about it with it's vaulted cellars, the staff were attentive and spoke good English. What else can be said but that the Fantastic Polish cuisine is highly recommended.

Pod Aniolami - Under the Angels: Have you ever eaten borscht?

The restaurant is in a splendid 13th Century building. Legend has it that this downstairs cellar was once an alchemist's lab.
Serves perfectly executed traditional Polish dishes -- borscht, various grilled meats served with baked apples and horseradish, hot spiced mead -- in a darkly romantic vaulted cellar.

Favorite Dish Borscht soup made with red beets, beef shank, onions, carrots, cabbage, dill, and sour cream; the taste of soup was very odd for me
Wild boar hunters style was a dry and tough venison steak. I can recommend the peirogi dumplings, venison and wild boar.
Expensive place but good value for money, dinner for two with wine runs about US$22.

Open Monday to Thursday 1 p.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturday 1 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Pod Aniolami: Lovely but slightly overpriced

Thi underground restaurant is like a maze. Have one too many drinks and you may not find your way out!
The food was lovely I must say and the choice of wines very good. Saying that I did feel it was overpriced.
The restaurant has won many awards over the years. Food is cooked in an elm wood fired grill and you can watch them cooking. The service was excellent and the staff spoke very good English.
Despite the prices I would come here again as the atmosphere is very good.
Booking is a must

Favorite Dish I had the vegetarian kebab with spinack and cheese. It was very tasty but there are also many other restaurants in Krakow serving good food.

Pod Aniolami: Great atmosphere

This restaurant was recommended by many sites on the internet and by people who have been there already. I, therefore, emailed it to get a booking as 36 of us would be going for our Xmas dinner. Communication via email and telephone was quick and very efficient. One of the managers emailed me a sample of 5-6 different menu suggestions, including vegetarian options, together with the option of having a whole pig on a spitroast if 15 or more of us were interested. What made the place even more special was that at the end we did not take up any of the menus but mixed and matched whatever we wanted from their house-menu. Obviously we emailed the order a few days before, but if you run a restaurant you know how difficult it is to cater for 36 people that want different starters, main courses and desserts!!

The dinner itself went without any errors or glitches. We were sitted in the private garden-room, which had been decorated like a medieval courtyard and enjoyed a variety of dishes such as pie of hare served with cranberries, various pork and lamb dishes marinated with spices and served with fruit and vegetables (see the restaurant menu on its website), fresh baltic salmon, etc.

After washing everything down with loads of wine and beer, the bill came to about £25 per person!!!! Amazingly cheap, considering everyone had a three course meal with loads of drinks.

Favorite Dish I personally liked my selection, which was pie of hare with cranberries for starter, pork steak marinated with herbs and served with mushrooms, bacon and red cabbage as a main course and home made apple pie for dessert.

Pod Aniolami: Fantastic and moderately priced restaurant

The restaurant was recommended in the Eyewitness guide to Kraków as one of the culinary highlights of Kraków and it certainly proved to be one. The restaurant is in vaulted cellars and in a mediaeval building and its specialities are typically Polish. The waiting staff were attentive but not pushy and spoke very good English - most useful given my dearth of Polish! The service was quick but not hurried and the food exquisite. For a three course meal with wine I paid PLN 120 (excluding service) which was a bit more than I would have paid elsewhere in town but it was well worth it!

Favorite Dish I had a rabbit pâté with pears and cranberries on fresh bread - a mixture of wholemeal and white bread served with a herb butter as a starter - fantastic - the quantity was perfect and very tasty indeed. As a main course I chose a boar steak served with a baked potato and red cabbage with apples and raisins - it was very well cooked, exceptionally tasty and a very enjoyable main course. For dessert I had a polish apple pie with cinnamon and almonds and with some egg liquor on top - which was a really good way to finish the meal off. All of this washed down with the house wine - an Italian red - which was very pleasant too.

Pod Aniolami: Very good Polish cuisine

Pod Aniolami, or "Under the Angels" as it is more commonly called in English, is a very good restaurant featuring traditional Polish cuisine. In adddtion to the food, its other selling point is its atmosphere. It is located in an old medieval cellar, which adds to the dining experience.

Pod Aniolami: A lot of rustic charm

Pod Aniolami (Under the angels) is one of the top restaurants in Krakow, so I was worried that it would be very expensive, but this was not the case, at least compared to British prices.
It is famous for it’s marinated meats cooked an elm-wood fired grill. Unfortunately, upstairs was fully booked, so we had to go downstairs to the cellar, which was no bad thing as this area was lovely anyway, with wooden tables, a real medieval feel.
I had lamb cutlets, grilled, potatoes with rosemary, kidney beans and courgette and cheesecake for dessert.
Service was very good and they were attentive to my fiancés requirements (no sugar) and they informed him which dessert he could have (hot apple and cinnamon). Recommended.

Pod Aniolami: Pod Aniolami - 'Angelic' food and Atmosphere

First of all the ambience of this restaurant is amazing. Housed in an old cellar you are welcomed by the sound of running water – courtesy of the small fountain on one wall – and bird song – courtesy of the caged birds singing to each other across the restaurant (we spent a good few minutes trying to decide whether or not the birds were real. They were real, or else they were extremely convincing automata!). All this – plus the eclectic collection of bric-a-brac on the walls and the friendly and efficient waiting staff – helps to create an interesting and pleasant atmosphere in which to enjoy the traditional Polish food that is on the menu.

Favorite Dish Starters:-
Fish Soup – delicious
‘Angels’ Pate (mixed meat and horseradish) – very good

Main Course:-
Tench in cream sauce with Broccoli and Rice – lovely
Wild Boar with Bacon, Mushrooms and Cranberry Sauce wioth potatoes – Fantastic!

Apple Pie and Cream – Yummy!

Beer, Coffee and Vodka

Total for 2 people including tip = 215 zloty (approx. 42 pounds sterling)

And worth every penny!

Pod Aniolami: Try The Polish Steak

This is a very busy restaurant, try to book in advance. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very nice, nice decorations and friendly staff. The food was superb here, I really really enjoyed it and for our standards not expensive at all. The menu was very good, you really had a lot of choice, more than average.

Favorite Dish I dont remember the exact name of my dish but it was a steak prepared in a polish way with chanterelle mushrooms in a peppersause with green asparagus.... delicious !

Pod Aniolami: An atmospheric eatery

Pod Aniolami has a series of atmospheric vaults below street level. On a hot summer night though, the heat downstairs was stifling. My enduring memory though is of walking down the stairs, and seeing a great hairy dog raise itself from under one of the tables! How Bruegelesque!

We decided to eat upstairs in the airier courtyard!

Favorite Dish Tried the wild pig - twas excellent. The quality of cooking was good, presentation fine and service prompt

Pod Aniolami (Under the...

Pod Aniolami (Under the Angels). It's easy to spot this venue as a group of angels adorns the facade of the building.
Fabulous cellars are beautifully decorated. It was a very nice day so we decided to sit outside (pictured).

Favorite Dish Fantastic Polish cuisine.
I had a delicious salmon from the Baltic sea. It was spiced with different herbs.
You can walk up to a huge glass refrigerator and look at the selection of the meats that are being marinated. You can even pick your own portion that you want to be grilled!!!
