Situated in the Lesser Poland Voivodeship (since 1999), previously in Katowice Voivodeship (1975–1998), it is the capital of Olkusz County.

Chocholowy Dwor - Restaurant

This is a charming place, that encourages guests to rest and try the Polish and European cuisine, as well as dishes served from a wood-burning oven. Our menu is very diverse. We offer seasonally-inspired dishes. In the spring, we recommend newn vegetables, in the summer, light dishes from the grill, in the autumn, mushrooms and squashes, and in the winter, we specialise in goose meat. Our menu includes other, non-seasonal dishes. A permanent element are specialities and our guests' favourite dishes. We can also boast our pierogi, which are made in our kitchen.

We had no idea what to expect, well maybe not much because of the tour buses but it was really a delightful evening with stunning service and good food. Not elegant dining but really well prepared and many options for picky eaters. Loved the decor.

Reviewed By pinkpapuga - Dyer, in

What a gem! We visited twice, and were not disappointed neither time. The place is small, but the flavor is mighty. We had a duck dish, which was full of flavor, we had a traditional cold beet soup (very welcome on a hot day), and desserts. Everything was yummy, service super. If you're there or driving by, well worth pulling over for a great dinner.

Karczma ma swoj klimat, w srodku jest bardzo ladnie, milo sie siedzi. W piatki i soboty jest muzyka na zywo, fajnie graja. Jedzenie? Porcje sa OGROMNE! W tygodniu dostaje sie przystawke - ogorki i chleb ze smalcem. Ogolnie... Czasem lepsze jedzenie, czasem gorsze, to zalezy. Dla samego klimatu tego miejsca, lubie tam jezdzic :)

In the center square of an old and pretty village (actually a town). Food is traditional and very good... Cheap. Service is friendly. I was just surprised that there were few people. This place is more used to do catering or organize weddings.

Great food, generous portions, great service, everything within reasonable price range. The restaurant itself has an interesting and pleasant historical vibe. Good for both: having a quick bite and romantic meal.

Jeżeli ktoś korzysta ze starej trasy Katowice - Kraków musi minąć po drodze Bidę. Wielka drewniana chata jakich sporo przy drogach w Polsce ale byłem tam kilka razy i przypadła mi do gustu. Przeginają z porcjami ale to cgyba ich znak rozpoznawczy :) smaczna zupa grzybowa podana w pół litrowej misie zaraz po starterze ( dwie ogromne pajdy chleba smalec i ogórki ) mogłyby już w zupełności załatwić temat obiadu ale główna atrakcja programu kompletnie mnie pokonała. Schabowy wielkości koła do samochodu ze smaczna mizerią byla bardzo smaczny. Byłem w tym lokalu kilka razy i czytając wcześniejsze recenzje zgodzę się że kuchnia nie zawsze pracuje równo i czasem zdarzają sie jakieś potknięcia ale przy "przemiale" który jest w knajpie jedzenie jest świeże a obsługa miła i sprawna. Polecam

Se si vuole mangiare piatti tipici polacchi in maniera veloce questo é il posto giusto.
Qui non troverete stranieri ma solo polacchi.
Piatti tipici della tradizione come zuppe e gnocchi di patate.
Reparto self service per insalate miste ben fornito.
Tutto freschissimo e il menù cambia ogni giorno.
Molto economico

Pizzeria Bella Napoli

Reviewed By Marek G

W niepozornym lokalu przy trasie Kraków - Katowice drzemie niesamowity smak i klimat. Wystarczy chwila, aby przekonać się, że pizzeria jest prowadzona w rodzinnej atmosferze, obsługa miła, sympatyczna.
Pizza z opalanego drewnem jest pyszna, wręcz uzależniająca - kto raz spróbował będzie wracać przy każdej okazji.
Jako ciekawostkę dodam, że wnętrze jest zdobione ręcznie, obudowa kominka została wykonana specjalnie na zamówienie, a piec do pizzy został zbudowany prze ekipę budowlaną z Neapolu, która przywiozła ze sobą całość oryginalnych materiałów.
Jeśli będziecie w pobliżu, warto posmakować pysznej pizzy lub makaronów i zwrócić uwagę na zdobienia ścian, które wymagały niemało wysiłku i ogromnego talentu!
