Stodola 47 is a warm, hearty burst of rural life in the middle of one of Krakow's busiest Old Town streets. Located along the famous Royal Route, this informal, family-style restaurant offers simple, traditional fare among the simple, traditional trappings of country décor. The basic wooden tables and benches are more like hefty chunks of log sawn in half, complemented by animal skins, rough plaster walls mottled by bare stone and brick, stacks of chopped wood, cart wheels, bales of hay, and a crackling fireplace.
On the menu at Stodola 47, you'll find highlights of Polish cuisine such as pickled herring, sheep's cheese with cranberry sauce, barszcz with mushroom-filled dumplings, sour rye soup, pierogi, and even a wild boar roast. The selection of meat dishes is particularly rich, from duck marinated in cherries and cinnamon bark to plum-stuffed pork, traditional beef goulash, or a roast marinated in wine and blackcurrants. Desserts include the Cracovian favourites, apple cake and cheesecake.
The portions, like the furnishings, are large and simple, home-cooking at its best with a little extra flair. Stodola 47 is a perfect stop along Krakow's busiest tourist and shopping route, something of a mix between a family restaurant, a simple cafeteria, fine traditional dining, and a family barbecue.
