One of the city's most historic and undeniably charming cellar restaurants, Pod Aniołami offers a quintessentially Cracovian encounter with royal medieval Polish cuisine. As you enter you find yourself immersed in a cavernous, candle-lit, almost monastic haven that is incredibly warm and inviting considering that in some of its 13th century dining areas you are a full two levels below the city's 'path of Kings.' Historical artefacts - down to the kitchen equipment and even the cutlery - surround you, and two beech wood-fired grills allow you to watch the creation of your meal from beginning to end. A beautiful courtyard garden stays open year round, and the extensive menu includes their famous pierogi and nearly everything imaginable that can be smoked, grilled, or was enjoyed by the Polish nobility in days of old. For centuries this was the residence of Kraków's goldsmiths, and Pod Aniołami pays homage with special recipes that include real gold - for its health benefits, of course, but this is still one of the richest restaurant experiences in town. Recommended.
