Excellent food and service. Very formal atmosphere in the very heart if the main square. We sat over the Windows overlooking S. MArys church. Really Nice experience.

This restaurant never fails to disappoint and this time we had the benefit of a window table overlooking the Market Square at night (worth asking for that when you reserve the table). The food was again absolutely superb with a good selection of refined Polish dishes and a good wine list. Will definitely be back next time we're in Krakow.

The Wierzynek is a unique restaurant having been in operations since the 1300s. The menu is updated of course and superb. The service is top rate. A good wine list complements the tasty meals. The fois gras as an appetizer is delicious and disappeared quickly. As mains the Sturgeon and Filet were a delight as well. The filet was a... More

This is the restaurant to go to if you want different food than the typical tourist trap food on the square! Here they do not have pizza and pasta, but more typical Polish food, mixed with great finesse and history! I ate veal shank, and it tasted great! Here it is a bit more expensive than many of the other... More

We tried to eat here but the staff was very rude and lazy. They kept trying to get is to go two doors down to eat in the cafe, which had a limited dessert menu, even though we told them we wanted dinner. We were early and there were plenty of open tables. We left and went to find someplace... More

This place tries to be Michelin star food and they are not far off the mark, everything tasted great from starters to puddings and presentation was great. For three courses each and a bottle of wine the meal came to £110, ok a little pricey for krakow but it's worth it for the quality of food and service. If you... More

Great as always. Food absolutely delicious. Foie gras to die for. Lack of air conditioning would be more annoying if it would have been hotter outside. Having said that such a great restaurant should find a solution to cool dinning rooms on hotter days. And food flies which clearly enjoyed my wine nearly as much as I did. Regardless -... More
