will be spending four nights in warsaw and four nights in krakow in early september
seems all the restaurants get excellent reviews on the various sites
do you have any favorites which in your mind stand out from the rest for food, ambience, service

any price range is fine, although we tend not to use places with tablecloths, fawning service, and dumbed down tourist food. favor the equivalent of bistros, etc.

appreciate your advices

The two most memorable restaurants in Krakow were Polskie Smaki, which had Polish food at lower prices for equal or better quality compared with most of the other places serving Polish cuisine I went to, and Aqua e Vino, with delicious high end Italian food at prices high for Krakow, but not high compared to what you'd pay for food of this quality in Italy or the US.
