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.

Well executed menu with traditional staples. The history is unique, and certainly a reason to visit. Good location in the market square and interesting venue. The food was not extraordinary or special, but everything was well done and formally presented. We were skeptical that it would be tourist trap or food would really let us down, but we would go again. Don’t be put off by empty entrance... the proper restaurant is upstairs and busy but can’t be seen from ground level.

We had a three day trip to Krakow and booked here for dinner. Whether you enjoy a meal is entirely down to your own expectations. This restaurant is great and I would dearly like to go again. Service exceptional and the food excellent with very modest prices. Thoroughly recommended and I would go here rather than anywhere else in Krakow.

An amazing restaurant which I cannot recommend highly enough. Our waiter Matheus gave us a splendid tour of the restaurant and told us of the history. All the staff had a real pride in their work and the experience was theatrical at times - the removal of the champagne cork was a highlight. The food was out of this world and an excellent selection of wines. It was also very good value for such high quality. A memorable experience all round. Thank you.

This wonderful restaurant is situated by the Town square in the beautiful city of Kraków. When you sit in the restaurant it’s like being part of a play. The rooms are beautiful, nice music is being played (not to loud) and the menu and the service is all part of the experience. My husband and I had a three meal course. We started with an appetiser with complements from the chef, then we had a soup, venison and desert. The food and the wine was excellent! Our very competent, nice and attentive waiter Olek made our evening special and most pleasant! Coming from another country it’s easy to communicate when the waiter can speak English! And make things a little bit funny! We most certainly recommend this restaurant and Olek to make your evening a special memory!
