Meal lovely. Staff lovely. Sommelier was fantastic recommending good wines and sharing with us his experiences from Cornwall. Only downside is when paying by card they input stirling without authority or telling me costing me considerably more than it should have done.

You need to call the restaurant direct. They speak perfectly good English. I ate there three times whilst I was in Krakov, and I didn't need to reserve a table.

Description
Fish is the base of Farina's menu as well as the flour. That is why they appear on our restaurant's logo. Both are not only healthy but also very useful for thousands of intriguing dishes. Flour, on our logo represented with a sack, symbolizes pasta, ravioli, delicate rolls prepared in our kitchen as well as traditional Polish dumplings. These fresh, natural ingredients influenced by temperamental and passionate culinary interpretation gain a unique character and inspire the cooks to try extra ordinary combinations.We are trying our best to develop the taste of Polish cuisine by adding new ingredients and culinary compositions which are unusual for it. For that reason Farina serves also seafood: oysters, shrimps, bivalves, crabs and octopus. This is precisely our own idea of cuisine in Farina Restaurant.
