Krakow's UNESCO listed Market Square is surrounded by bars and restaurants. Choosing one to dine in can be a struggle but if you are looking for a restaurant with a long tradition in the culinary trade, Wentzl Restaurant certainly has that. The unique restaurant is located in a historical tenement at the Main Square and its history dates back several centuries. Its interiors evoke memories of a prewar restaurant full of dark wood, with beautiful coloured pheasant feathers and thick curtains. Since its beginning in 1635, the site had worthy hosts. First, it was a stately home of the Cellari family, wealthy Cracow bourgeois, then the house of an eminent dynasty of restaurateurs, whose founder was John Wentzl.
Each of the restaurant interiors reveals the secret of sophisticated feast of the
senses, and the fragrance of herbs is the harbinger of good taste. No one
passes indifferently the blini with red caviar and smoked salmon, delicious sour rye soup based on rabbit broth served with quail egg or roasted duck stuffed with nuts & apples with gingerbread sauce served with dumplings and red cabbage. The dessert menu deserves the mention. Sweet delicacy created with white chocolate, caramel & pear with rose preserves satisfies the most demanding gourmets.
