Menu - Cuisine is made by people

Chef, Ziemowit Owczarz, has always worked for and with the best. Until recently in the Michelin-starred Bottiglieria 1881 restaurant in Cracow, now here at ISTO he creates surprising culinary combinations. He dresses traditions in world trends, enriches European cuisine with a Japanese hint, and tirelessly searches for umami – the fifth, elusive taste.


We are located in the very centre of the city’s cultural life in the so-called Culture Zone. The premises are located in a modern office building designed by Medusa Group, in the vicinity of the iconinc “Spodek” and architecture recognizable beyond Silesia. The International Congress Centre (ICC) is located just arou nd the corner – this is the seat of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra (NOSPR) or the Silesian Museum (SM).

The parking lot is located on Olimpijska Street, in front of the International Congress Centre.
