I remember when we used to count on travel books being current and dependable. And they usually were not. Around dinnertime last night we used our mobile app for something nearby and we stumbled upon Wentzl.
I did not think it was possible to dine this well in Poland. It was a truly upscale experience in high style and we are definitely foodies. Wentzl is not cheap so if you are looking for a meal on a shoestring budget you will need to go elsewhere but the quality was exceptional, the atmosphere lovely, the presentation outstanding and the waitstaff superb.
Wentzl is located on the mail Market Square in the Old Town and is on the second floor of the Wentzl Hotel. Although it might look stuffy at first, they welcome tourists to come as they are and although you may really be sitting there in your walking shoes, jeans and sweatshirt, you could swear you were wearing a tuxedo and dining among dignitaries in their Baroque dining room.
The wine list is not extensive but is servicable with a fine array of choices and I suspect all will be quite enjoyable. We chose a bottle of Malbec that was very nice and also a glass of Riesling that was said to be an outstanding match to the trout. The warm goat cheese salad was as good as it gets. Beef Wellington was a special and truly special at that. And the truffle cake was just to die for.
Plan to spend about 300 zl (USD 100) for a couple but it is one of those meals that will go on your short list of life's memorable culinary experiences!
