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.
