About
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:

Pros : Lovely dining room which is cosy and warm Lovely bread intro Good selection of well cooked food Good wine list Wine glass was never empty - staff were on it which is great Fair pricing Do I have any constructive criticism to notch...this review up to a full 5? Yep: Staff could be a little warmer/ slightly less formal (see review for Amaryllis where staff were positively lovely to be around). Quick to top up the wine (great) but we had to ask for water glasses to be refilled. I’d suggest refilling both water and wine at the same time. Staff forgot to return our brollies to us when handing us our coats at the end of the night which meant that we had to return for at the end of the night to collect them. Our coats/brollies were identified by a numbered oyster shell (effective our cloakroom ticket) so I think the system must have glitched somewhere along the line. We had 2 bottles of wine and admittedly didn’t realise until later that evening when it started to rain. No harm done just a bit annoying/inconvenient. It’s a decent place though and we would return.More

We have walked by this restaurant countless times. I even read about the chef once, and I was really impressed. Therefore, when one of our 'special occasion' dates came around this year, it was finally time, and we were not disappointed. An elegant interior with...a subtle romantic atmosphere. Friendly and polite staff. Lots of deliciousness to choose from. The fish soup and the crab soup - highly recommended. Very nice Fritto Miso for 2 with fries on the side, and non-alcoholic mohitos. Recommended for a lovely night out for 2, an elegant dinner with loved ones or friends, and also nice for business meetings.More

The restaurant is in quiet street in the old part of town. Food was delicious. We tried fish and duck breast with apple, so tasty! Staff are so professional, very polite and not annoying with fake smile. They really enjoy there. Atmosphere is really good....We made reservation and they immediately contact us because they dont work on Monday (we didnt know) and find new booking date. One important thing is that you cannot leave service tip by credit card, so prepare cash. Maybe they will improve that thing in the future. Thank you for great time.More

Before visiting Krakow my research revealed it was a growing foodie city, great I thought, but the choice of restaurants was enormous. I narrowed it down by deciding we would only eat at restaurants featuring in the Michelin guide, which still left us with more...than enough to choose from. Hence during our stay we dined at several Michelin guide listed restaurants and Kraków’s only Michelin starred restaurant (now 2 stars and also fantastic but on a different budget altogether) and Farina stood out as our favourite. The standard of food and service was outstanding, as fish lovers this restaurant was perfect for us. On our last day we had an evening flight so both agreed our late lunch should be at Farina, and the first visit wasn’t a fluke it was fantastic again. We loved Krakow for a city break and Farina added to our experience, I suspect we will be returning and visiting Farina more than once again. Well done to the team there, don’t change a thing.More
