Wooow- what a place! Had high expectations because of good reviews on TripAdvisor. Felt lucky to get a table, booked the table a week ahead by email. You can't expect to get a table here without a booking, this place is popular and for good reason!!!! We had a very friendly waiter. The meal was AMAZING. Huge size portions. Can... More

Tucked away down a quiet side street in the Kazimierz district you will find the hidden gem that is Starka. Having heard that the food scene in Krakow is really something special we decided to book a table a few weeks before visiting the city, boy are we glad we did. It was a cold night and the 30 minute... More

Booked around 10 days in advance, but only JUST got a table at 6:30pm on the Easter Monday. A friendly waitress sat us down and made us feel comfortable, and other tourists around us were quick to recommend their own plates, telling us how good they were. A complimentary starter of warm bread and garlic butter was lovely but short... More

This restaurant is highly rated for good reason. We went on a Friday evening and had booked. Looks like bookings are a necessity. Excellent menu, pleasant and helpful service, lovely food and drinks. Just can't be faulted and prices are cheap too. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

I had read up about this restaurant before our trip to Kraków and was hoping we could eat here. Luckily we arrived early enough to get a table - probably the last as the restaurant was full. At least 20 people arrived after us attempting to get a table, but were unable to - we also tried to reserve for... More

Although quite weary after all day touring our party of four elected to keep our reservation at Starka rather than just order room service. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, the service was friendly and timely. The meals were complex offering a plethora of taste sensations, one of the best meals we had on our trip! The stuffed... More
