We had a lovely dinner with very well balanced and well made dishes. The waiter (Daniel with glasses) and the sommelier (don’t know the name unfortunately) were very knowing and professional, and helped us to a dinner to remember.

Absolutely loved this place. Best meal we had in Krakow. As you would imagine fish cooking was on point. Great wine list, sommelier, waiter (Daniel with glasses) and venue made for a memorable lunch. Kudos to the team at Farina!

From start to finish, our dining experience was fantastic. Amazing (sea)food, very nice restaurant and very friendly and attentive staff with a big smile. We took 3 courses (as appetizer some had the tuna carpaccio (but I think it’s rather a tuna tartar, but nevertheless...it was perfect),others took the sea snails; than the fantastic soups (asparagus cappuccino or spice crab soup) and for main course some of us took the black risotto, others the shrimps in honey sauce or the St Jacques mussels. It was amazing, it was our first dinner in Krakau and our group said to me… it will be hard to choose a better restaurant than Farina. It was every zloty worthy.More

Fish and seafood quite ok, Turbot and Carpaccio with Tuna and Risotto stand out. Other dishes; Crab soup and steak mediocre. However, I wanted to write about service, especially a few things worth writing: 1. No tableware for one of the people at the table...- after serving the first course - here is a minus because the waiter in a restaurant of such renown cannot overlook it 2. Taking unfinished dishes from the table, without asking guests if they will not eat (fries or part of the remaining snacks from the company) 3.lack of such care over the table, empty glasses of wine could stand and stand and nobody came and the wine was standing on the bar (in a cooler) 4. Taking a glass of one of the guests from the table with 1/2 full bottle of wine in a cooler - a terrible mistake 5. Good- Somalier tips from one of the waiters! Very ok here I think, together with our foreign guests, that the price vs the dishes and service are not worth the price ... unfortunately :( greetings Group of FriendsMore

Amazing food, although service was a bit slow. Went on a Saturday night and in fairness they were full. The food and wine was great! Didn’t expect to find such good seafood in Krakow! Has the seafood tagliatelle and it was exquisite! Plus the crème...brulee was fantastic, although big enough to share between two! Not the cheapest meal, but compared to the UK was great value!More

Already when we entered the restaurant we were welcomed with happiness and friendlyness. Ver nicely decorated and elegant. We were a company of 8 with the youngest child aged 8. We tried the carpaccio, snails, crab soup, grilled fish/seafood plate, as a starter and halibut...and sirloin for mains. All food was great.

What a great place! We really enjoyed the complimentary breads and mushroom with truffle oil pate, it was delicious. We both went for the seafood linguine, which was loaded with muscles and prawns, cooked to perfection. My partner loves oysters, so I braved it myself...and had my first ever and loved it. Being served with a vodka and chilli side glass helped persuade me! Thanks actually enjoyed it, overcoming my fear of eating one! For me, the spicy crab soup was my favourite. The right balance of spice and creaminess. I thoroughly enjoyed it. As promised, we’d like to thank Daniel (with glasses!) for being a great host and helping us with our selections and for taking a few pictures. We were sorry we had no cash to leave (as tips can’t be added to card payment) but we hope this review reflects our gratitude for such a lovely evening and experience. By far the highlight of our dining in Kakow.More
