Introligatornia Smaku Restaurant
Without doubt this is my favourite restaurant in Krakow. I have spent many evenings here eating the best food and drinking the best wine.
Most recently I visited with a group of friends who were visiting from England. The restaurant get’s very busy so it’s important to book in advance.
The menu is extensive and has everything from Polish to some really top end fine dining plates. Not that the Polish dishes are not high end, they are certainly refined more than usual Polish dishes.
I like to start with the dumplings filled with cod. These are not like mother makes dumplings but more like pies or pasties. They taste great, I cannot get enough of these. My friends ordered prawns and a small pasta dish which were also very delishes.
My main dish was the very best. I ordered beef cheek – which must have been cooked for days because it was so tender and delishes. It comes with buckwhete and lentils which come together for a very impressive dish.
This was all washed down with a beautiful Rioja, I cannot remember the name of this, but I have never had a bad wine from Smaku, so you can order without worry.
My friends are always shocked in this restaurant when the bill comes because it is so cheap. Poland is cheap but has become more expensive over the years, but I am yet to visit a restaurant in Europe that has food of this quality at this price.
