The Top Five Places to Eat in Krakow

Eating out in Krakow is tasty and reasonably priced and there are plenty of options. If you’re only visiting for a short time you should take note of our top choices so you don’t miss out.

Restaurant Wierzynek is quite swanky, and because it dates all the way back to 1364, is something of a hotspot in the Old Town. It’s won several awards for its top-notch traditional cuisine and has stunning décor to accompany the great service. What’s more, kings, emperors and presidents are said to have dined here.


As well as tasty food, you’ll be hard pushed to find a restaurant in Krakow without a story to tell. That’s certainly the case for Pod Aniolami, which is in a 13th century goldsmiths workshop. All underground tunnels and stonewalls, it has a medieval vibe and serves up some of the tastiest game dishes in the city.

Cyrano de Bergerac is a great place to mix things up a bit. It has a French-inspired menu that even Prince Charles has chosen from. Think frog legs, foie gras and fresh oysters that are good enough for royalty.

The Café Oranzeria rooftop restaurant has views of top attractions like Wawel Castle and River Vistula. You can go for breakfast, lunch or dinner and there are plenty of options for vegetarians. Try the tasting menu to sample some of the best in Polish cuisine.


Finally, Ti Amo Ti is an ever popular pizzeria and trattoria that serves all kinds of Italian fare. It’s great food at a reasonable price, and there’s an outdoor space as well as a quaint indoor area. If you’d like a picnic with a pizza in the park then you can get your food to takeaway here.
