This is one of the best restaurants I've had the pleasure to eat in. Service was first class and the decor is great. Also good to people watch in the main square. The foie gras was delicious as was the soup. Medallions of beef excellent. Chocolate mousse and wine first rate too.

My partner and I ate here on the last night of our holiday to Krakow and wished we had tried it earlier. We ordered a two course meal and were given a complimentary pate dish as a starter, and the food was very special. There was a lovely selection of meat on the menu- duck, goose, veal, fish etc, and... More

I was there with my friend 2 weeks ago, top service, everybody knew what they are doing and i felt pampered with attention. The food was good and presented in a wonderful manner, classic music was playing and the view over the square was priceless. I warmly recommend this restaurant

The ambiance, the food and the service were excellent. If you like to wine and dine - you must try Wierzynek - they serve traditional Polish Cousine and some very tasty wild game. Highly recommended!

There are just so many better restaurants in Krakow especially when you compare the price. The service is of course excellent, but I would not come back unless some one else really really wants to. The herring entree was average with too much onion (think tennis ball amount). The duck as main was good but I have had better duck... More

We were in Cafe Wierzynek twice drying our short stay in Cracow. And if you like sweets just go there. Not really too pricy, delicious cakes and really good coffee. Especially mocca coffee was very tasty! And staff is just so nice . Will definitely go there again next time I'm in Cracow.

Just being at this restaurant is a great experience (has more than 600 years). The food is really good, no matter what you order. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. I recomend the duck with potatos and stuffed zucchini flower and the chocolate souffle with mint icecream (delicious!!). It's a restaurant you can't miss if you visit Krakow.

Very Historic building and restaurant - since the 1300s I believe. We took a private room on the second or third floor, yes lots of stairs for this, but it was like walking into one of the Guild Halls in London once in the room. Yes again a group of 17 for a 60th birthday meal, good selection of foods,... More
