One of the oldest restaurants in Europe, Wierzynek used to be the place to go for important visitors to Kraków. It's still a wonderful place to dine. One of the advantages of Wierzynek is that it is located above ground. After several days of continuously dining in underground cellars, something so open and airy can be very welcome. The decor is traditional and formal. The tables are set properly, with several layers of cloths, heavy cutlery, ornate glasses and so on. There are several dining areas to choose from and the atmosphere is subdued and elegant. Traditional Polish food of the upper class variety is available here. There is also a fairly comprehensive list of side dishes, so even vegetarians should be able to piece together a meal (this is often very difficult in typical Polish restuarants). The wine list is good and there is also an extensive selection of other drinks. Average cost 70PLN. Booking is advisable.
This restaurant began in the 1564 and has hosted many famous people like the Kennedy Family, George H. W. Bush, as well as European monarchy. The staff is very friendly and can speak quite a few languages. The service is great and the food is delicious and filling. The decor of the restaurant looks like a palace.
A very elegant restaurant with very good food and superb atmosphere.The staff was also super, not very high costs.The most exquisit thing was that when i left , my girlfriend got a rose from the staff.SUper!!!
From the old world cuisine with modern touches to white glove service, Wierzynek is THE place to dine. After all, it has been in existence for hundreds - yes hundreds of years. Apparently the clientele keeps coming back! (and I am happy to be one of them)
The best in Cracow. But that was 13 years ago. Since than, maybe there are newer places, but during my stays there (in 1990 and and 1992), it was by far the best in town. Also, very elegant.
The service was class, so was the food, and the price for a first class restaurant, very reasonable.
I visited Krakow for the first time in February this year, and had tea at the Wierzynek. That was wonderful- with lovely waitresses serving excellent teas and desserts, dressed very elegantly in lovely surroundings. BUT the highlight of the visit was dining in the restaurant upstairs. I am a bit of a foodie, and very fussy. I recognise quality when i see it and taste it. The meal my partner and I had was superb-from the mushroom consomme, to the duck with apple, and dessert of delicate chocolate and fruit. I have dined in some of London and Paris's finest, but this compared equally.
This place has been around long enough now to be a Krakow institution. When the Greek chefs aren't putting on
a cookery show behind the large glass fronted window they are often smiling and talking to passersby.
This interesting Senegalese restaurant is the work of the ambitious Fortuna Hotel chain (who own two hotels in close proximity:
the Fortuna and the Fortuna Bis). Kraków's first (and only) African restaurant is located in the Fortuna Bis Hotel. ...
