IT STARTED WITH...
... of course with a Carp. But not from the one floating in the pond, but the stone one, decorated with golden polychrome, decorating the facade of the tenement house. Once, instead of numbers, tenements had their own emblems, most often in the form of animals carved in stone. In this historic building No. 10, on the Krakow Main Market Square, we opened a restaurant. When the moment came to name the restaurant, the choice became obvious: `` Under the Golden Carp ''. This is our tribute to the history of this place. An expression of our sense of relationship with the tradition and local culture of Krakow and Lesser Poland. From the golden carp on the facade of the tenement house it was not far to the regional delicacy of this region, which is Carp Zatorski.

Sometimes you don’t have to look far away. The treasures lie next to you. This was also the case with the restaurant idea. We decided to use the rich culinary tradition of the region and use regional products. Meat and vegetables from reliable suppliers, which we often know personally, are a guarantee of good cuisine.
