What a lovely dinner. I don't know what all these reviews are saying that it's a rip off! This is like a 4 course dinner for £50! Lovely staff. Very enjoyable!

It isn't cheap restaurant for sure. But propose the appropriate price to food & beverages quality, restaurant location and interior style & quality with genius loci and historical legacy :). I've eaten several times dinners in Wierzynek always with full satisfaction :)

What a disappointment. Total rip off. We went for the concert and VIP dinner. Should have been a six course dinner but they forgot to serve the first course. The starter was just a load of onion with a tiny (and I do mean tiny) piece of herring. Soup was a cheap disgrace as were the dumplings for the next... More

It's in the Old Town. Get on a horse cart and arrive in style. Be prepared for delays in service. Highly recommended

We booked this restaurant by emailing a couple of weeks in advance. When we arrived we were led to a great window table on the first floor with a view of the square. The restaurant itself is beautiful. The food was delicious, we had three courses and a free course of salmon tartar. This was one if the best meals... More

We booked this restaurant for a large party of 58 people because it had been highly recommended to us. We were given two interconnecting rooms on the top floor - they were fantastic. The restaurant is the oldest in Krakow and it really is beautiful. Despite there being so many of us, they allowed us choices for both the starter... More

Krakow is full of restaurants and the others we tried offered good food but a little on the heavy side. If you want to sample excellent quality ingredients, served in a well balanced manner then this is the place to come. We ordered from the Spring Menu - the highlight of which was a great fish dish which was full... More

A great place to find tasty gourmet cuisine in beautifully decorated rooms. The food is presented uniquely which adds to the atmosphere. Prices are on the higher end but worth it to experience the ambience.

I knew I should have dressed up for this one but we had a long day of travel and went anyway. The restaurant is definitely nice but they didn't even raise an eyebrow at my jeans and casual shoes although a couple of the other patrons certainly did! The service is quite grand and since we had made a reservation... More
