The day before, I had elected to avoid eating in the Main Square as I sought a quieter place. However,seeking sustenance around lunch time, I opted to sit out at the tables out in the sunlight and had a tasty meal of local pirogi and potatoes. However the highlight was a fresh fruit salad which was amazing. So worthwhile

Impeccable service, elegant dining. Food was wonderfully prepared very delicious! A bit pricey for Poland but you are paying for the upscale service. Worth it for the experience.

This restaurant is full of cultural items that decorate the place in the inside to make it truly beautiful. Also, a great history enrolls the restaurant. In fact, you can read the history on its menu. The only thing that might be considered unpleasant is the price of the food.

This restaurant has great food. It is a variation of some traditional polish food, but tastes great. I had cold beetroot soup as a starter, and it was fantastic. I was actually surprised, even though I like beets. The other food was also delicious. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is because of the costs.

Everything what we experienced from the entrance, through the given table by the window with a view over the market square, wonderful dishes served always in good timing, fine wine selection and a surprise in the end, made the place worth of visiting and positioned on the top of the list!

Eating here feels like getting to have an experience from another time. We came for lunch on a weekday and the place was almost empty inside and they let us wander around looking into all the spectacular rooms. Definitely eat inside, not at the outdoor tables--you're missing half the experience if you sit out there. The food was all excellent... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The service was perfect. We were fortunate to attend a concert first then have dinner. We had a table with a view of the square which was lovely and the food was wonderful.

Chopin concerts above the restaurant. Did not eat in the restaurant wish we had. The concerts are held on the top floor. If you like Chopin this is the most fantastic experience --and you get a glass of wine

Description
Wierzynek Restaurant is a very unique venue on the map of Poland, where 650-year-old tradition of feasting and modern approach to the culinary arts meet! The tradition of the restaurant dates back to 1364, when a wealthy merchant Mikolaj Wierzynek hosted a splendid feast for the monarchs of Europe on behalf of the Polish King Casimir the Great. At the Wierzynek Restaurant we continue this great medieval tradition of feasting until the present day by giving a royal welcome to each and every one of our guests. In Wierzynek Restaurant you can experience a truly noble celebration, founded not only on ravishing dishes, but also exceptional legendary interiors. You will be enchanted with amazing frescos and paintings embellishing restaurant walls, such as a replica of a well-known painting "The Feast at Wierzynek" by Bronislaw Abramowicz. Furthermore, one of a kind original cordovans, hand-made with artistry and masterful fineness, recently appeared in the famous Wierzynek Room. This unique masterpieces were made according to historical production technology from the turn-of-the-17th and 18th-century, using natural vegetable-tanned calf leather with the layer of genuine silver flake and decorated with gilding effect. Renovated interiors of the restaurant remarkably preserve the memory of a fourteenth-century feast. Having in mind the magic of this place, we proudly celebrate the legend that made our restaurant a symbol of Krakow.
