The day we spent in Krakow this week was absolutely amazing! We enjoyed every moment here, from morning till night.
Actually, we ended the day in this beautiful city of Krakow by having a late tea and dessert.
The restaurant is located in Main Square, just in the center of the city.
We decided to go the moment we saw the sign: Michelin 2023.
We did our research and find out this sign means that the restaurant is Michelin recommended. In other words, this means you'll find quality and good food. And indeed, the desserts we ordered were super delicious!
The restaurant is called Szara Resto&Bistro, located more precisely in Rynek Glowny, Krakow, Poland.
Just to clarify things, the restaurant doesnt have Michelin Stars.
It's just a restaurant recommended by the Michelin Committee, meaning they serve tasty and quality food.
Here I leave you these texts:
While a rating of one to three stars is most coveted, what usually remains under the radar are the restaurants listed in the red book but have not been awarded a star or a Bib Gourmand, an award created in 1997 to be given out to establishments that serve good food at moderate prices. These places are, in fact, judged by the same five criteria used for starred and Bib Gourmand restaurants, and are recognized as establishments serving good food.
“A restaurant in the Recommended selection is the sign of a chef using quality ingredients that are well cooked; simply a good meal,” says Michael Ellis, International Director of the MICHELIN Guide books. “It means that the inspectors have found the food to be above average, but not quite at star or Bib level.”
In fact, I accessed official Michelin website myself and found this restaurant being included on the list of restaurants in Poland that were Michelin Recommended, within their Guide list.
Because we've had enough food before, eating to Christmas Market Fair, we decided to go with a dessert and a drink.
We've had such a busy day in Krakow visiting and walking! This cozy moment spent here was heart warming, perfect to end the day.
The restaurant looks charming, old style combined with a retro style, I would say.
They have two restaurant rooms and it's quite big.
Chairs are comfortable enough, I dont have reasons to complain about a thing.
The atmosphere was nice: ambient music playing at a gentle volume, warm color lights, people having conversations and smiling, having a good time.
The stuff was....let's say, OK-ish! They weren't too friendly and they didnt move as fast as I thought, considering that the restaurant was not full, not even close. They came to our table quite late to take our order.
Instead, after we ordered, it didn't last much until we enjoyed the drinks and the desserts.
I ordered a mint tea and my husband a beer.
My tea was perfect to warm up after spending a long time outside.
I think I didn't mention that temperetures were around -4°C.
We decided to go with a Crème Brûlée and a Chocolate Cake.
More specifically, Crème Brûlée with Apple Wiskey, at a cost of 38zl. That is around 9 euros.
And the chocolate cake was with blackberry and coffee sauce and it costs the same as creme brulee, 38zl.
In case you wonder, the chocolate cake was mine and I was soooooo happy with my choice!
It was soo sooo delicious, wow! I'm not exagerating, for my taste, it was amazingly delicious!
It has such a rich flavor and the chocolate mousse on top was so delicate and perfect! It was really sweet, but I liked it this way! After all is a chocolate cake.
The Creme Brulle was delicious as well and the whiskey gave such a nice touch.
Overall, it was a nice experience. What matters the most is how we felt! And we felt comfortable here!
And of course, we enjoyed our desserts and drinks! 🥮
