Wierzynek with Its 14th century interiors of ornate beams, period art, and frescoes, has hosted distinguished heads of state such as Emperor Akihito, Queen Elizabeth II, George Bush Sr., and celebrities such as Steven Spielberg, Robert De Niro, and Sophie Marceau. This is indeed a unique setting for traditional Polish cuisine from the kitchens of the past nobility.
Items such as the home-made pate; the veal shank with Polish potato dumplings and beetroot in sour cream; and the pikeperch flamed in mead honey wine with pear in a sour cream sauce, are all outstanding. Desserts include handmade pastries and confectionery made with age-old recipes and techniques, as well as the pralines created out of love and passion for chocolate! The American bestseller “1000 Places to See before You Die” indeed mentions Wierzynek, making it a place that is a must-visit whilst in Krakow!
