Mieta Restobar is a mainstay of the dining scene on lively Krupnicza. Head in to enjoy some tasty Italian meals in a setting that’s perfect for the summertime.
Situated on one of Krakow’s up-and-coming restaurant and bar streets, Mieta is a pleasant little stop off for Polish beers and wood-fired Italian pizza. The interior is at once homely and relaxing, with a series of washed-out timber tables and booths.
Mieta actually means ‘mint’ in Polish, which could be a nod to the homegrown herbs and spices that are used throughout the cooking. Or, it might be for the minty mojitos that are served up in the lovely outdoor space during the Polish summer. Who knows?
The food in Mieta Restobar
There’s a good range of healthy salads to get through, along with fresh Mediterranean pastas, risottos, and soups. However, most people go for the pizzas. They are crispy and fresh, often topped with grilled courgette or uncooked mozzarella cheese.
During weekdays, the Italian vibe moves over and Polish cuisine gets a little lift. That’s thanks to the Mieta Restobar obiad (dinner at lunch) deals, which offer up to 20% off a sit-down, three-course meal. Those often include the likes of local soups, dumplings and roasted veg.
In the summer, be sure to drop by this one’s al fresco terrace. It buts onto the fine people-watching strip of Krupnicza Street itself. In addition to the pavement views, it comes complete with a a heated terrace for the smokers and an outdoor cocktail bar for good measure.
Mieta Restobar also hosts occasional concerts in its garden during the summer. To date, they’ve showcased local folk and blues singers. Check ahead to see if there’s anything planning and consider booking a table to ensure you get a decent spot.
