We had an amazing dining experience at this restaurant. Jacob (Cuba) our waiter was very attentive and helped us created the best meal from the menu options. Wild boar, venison, cow's tongue and lamb, colrabi soup. A Hungarian wine paired wonderfully with the meal. Must try desert is the award winning porcini mushroom ice-cream. Best desert ever! How will I... More

This place was recommended by an American we met in the main square. What a great place. From the Amuse- Bouche all the way through to the desert, all were amazing. The waiter Jacob was also outstanding. Who would have thought that mushroom ice cream could be so good. It is not cheap, but if you are willing to splurg,... More

Normally I do not visit ’well known historic restaurants on main squares’ – and for good reasons I experienced again. The Wierzynek has a nice location and nice facilities. the waiter was very nice but also very young and unexperienced. I might have visited them on a bad day but everything went wrong somehow… I’m into wine and I take... More

We dined here for lunch and have to say it's the best polish food we've had! Service was impeccable from the moment we stepped in. We had a lovely table by the window where we could see out to old town square. We were worried that our son wouldn't be able to eat anything but they made him a kids... More

Having had high hopes for this restaurant, and booked it as a birthday treat, it failed to deliver on almost all counts. Wine was served warm, main courses were at best average. Music poorly eclectic. Didn't bother with dessert as didn't want to risk a further let down. It felt like as if it was living on a reputation from... More

Wierzynek, well if Hollywood movie directors had any scruples about applying history correctly and honestly, they would not have to change a thing about this place, it sits off centre of the main square, but hold an imposing facade. On entry the facade does not disappoint it continues and intensifies the sense of history. Now to the meat and drink... More

This used to be the best restaurant in Cracow. Used to be. Now the surroundings and the nice decor remain, but the food itself is not worth the visit.

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.
