Wierzynek Restaurant

Royal Heritage

The tradition of the Wierzynek Restaurant dates back to 1364, when a wealthy Krakow merchant Mikołaj Wierzynek hosted a sumptuous feast for the monarchs of Europe on behalf of the Polish King Casimir the Great.

Wierzynek pursued this task with great care and overwhelmed his noble guests with a truly lavish welcome. According to the legend, the tables were heavy with food and drinks and the guests celebrated for 20 days and nights. Upon departure, the generous merchant presented each guest with a splendid gift – gold and silver tableware.

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.
