Wierzynek Restaurant in Krakow


Home > Restaurants > Polish > Wierzynek Restaurant

Wierzynek Restaurant is famous for its excellent cuisine, unique atmosphere and the longest tradition of feasting in Poland. It is a magical place - impossible to miss, when visiting the Main Market Square in Krakow. Wierzynek Restaurant is inspired by the splendid feast hosted by Mikolaj Wierzynek in 1364, which was attended by great European monarchs.

Today our mission is to give the same royal welcome to every single guest of our Restaurant as Mikolaj Wierzynek did 650 years ago. We treat Noble prize winners and Oscar winners the same as we treat Presidents and Royalty. We will treat you in the same exceptional way- as every Guest is for us the most important one!Wierzynek Restaurant is located in the heart of Krakow on the biggest medieval market in Europe. Therefore our Guest can dine to the sound of horses’ hooves clacking on the pavement while enjoying a fantastic view of the Cloth Hall and St. Mary's Basilica.
The exceptional atmosphere of the Wierzynek restaurant is created by its opulent historic interiors. Each of every eight rooms has its own unique décor. Old suits of armor adorn the historic walls of the Knight’s Room, ornamental frescos captivate Guests of the two Pompeian Rooms and modern, surreal paintings by Rafal Olbinski and Tomasz Setowski contrast with the ancient clocks and tile stoves of the Clock Room and the Chamber of Imagination .
This particular combination of tradition and modernity is reflected also in the menu of the Wierzynek Restaurant. Our chefs prepare dishes according to their own recipes which are inspired by traditional polish courtly cuisine. The 19th century author of “The physiology of taste” Brillat-Savarin wrote that discovery of a new taste contributes to the happiness of humankind more than the discovery of a new star. Therefore we are in continuous pursuit of new recipes and we enrich our traditional Old Polish dishes with European influences spicing them up with modern taste.

Address: 15 Main Market Square
