Wroclaw was the first stop on my long culinary adventure in Poland. The city of gnomes was the first place to open my eyes to the vibrant and eclectic food scene in this country. I really had no idea. Starting with the space, so many restaurants have embraced an aesthetic that is modern while retaining the city’s past charm. Most would match the hippest spots around the world.

And then the food. Not only do you have all the old world favorites, like goulash and pierogis, that I thoroughly enjoy, but the international cuisine here is done so much better than in other parts of Europe. In every city, I was astonished to find great Japanese food, authentic French dishes, and even things like burgers and pizzas are just done right.

Below are some of my favorite restaurants in Wroclaw. If you’re visiting for the first time, you won’t have a bad meal at any of these places.

I’ll quote the prices in PLN, but for reference I’m using an exchange rate of 1 USD = 4 PLN as of May 2024.

The Best Restaurants In Wroclaw

Stol Na Szwedzkiej

This experimental culinary experience deserves a post of its own, which it will get in due time. Along with the immersive dining in darkness experience at Dark Restaurant, it was two of the most standout dining adventures I had in Poland. We snagged a last minute reservation and took a taxi 6 km out of Wroclaw center to its location in a random suburban neighborhood.

TIP: If you are visiting Wroclaw, make a reservation for this place as soon as you can.

The concept is simple: guests come and sit at one of 3 tables. When he gets a moment, Chef Grzegorz Firkowski join you for a casual conversation on food. He asks the requisite questions about dietary requirements and preferences and then tries to get to know you. Finally, with a bounce he gets up and his team starts to prepare a special menu he designed on the spot just for you. On the spot.

During our lunch, I saw him cook a whole tabla of Asian cuisine for a group of regulars, and then put together a Mexican feast for another. For us, he wanted to go the haute-cuisine route with influences from my recent travels.

What transpired was a four-hour meal consisting of eight courses, ending only because we had a train to catch to continue our food adventure in Poznan. I’m convinced that he probably had another dish or two ready to go if we had more time. The best part was that Grzegorz looked to be enjoying himself the whole time.

I would expect a culinary experience like this from a Michelin starred restaurant. This place deserves at least the one star for being able to execute this concept on a daily basis. I was truly blown away with he pulled all the ingredients together, with limited prep time, to create one of my most memorable meals. And that’s saying a lot.

The prices range from 250 PLN to 400 PLN per person for the Standard Variant based on the ingredients in the menu Chef designs for your party. The VIP Variant costs 600 PLN per person and is based off a menu that incorporates more premium products.

W Kontakcie (Permanently Closed)

After such a heavy diner courtesy of Konspira, I looked for something healthier and ended finding a place that was a nice 30 minute morning walk away from my hotel. W Kontakcie is a health food haven and challenged my initial idea of the food scene in Poland.

The hummus plates are what they are known for, butI recommend getting the breakfast set which comes with homemade bread, a selection of hummus, vegetables, salad, and a fried egg. There’s also a vegan option. All this for 40 PLN.


This was my first Polish meal when I landed in Wroclaw and it couldn’t have been a better introduction to Polish cuisine and the local food scene. Konspira is a brick-lined restaurant that pays homage to the underground resistance movement against communism during the post-war era. We sat in the courtyard next to an old 1940’s military jeep.

The food is as classically Polish as you can get and the portions are gigantic. I’d say this is a mainstay of Wroclaw, so you can’t really come here without stopping by for a meal.

PRO TIP: If you are looking for a great place to stay in WROCLAW, I highly recommend the exclusive aparthotel. We loved the full apartment setup and the location by the old town was perfect to explore the restaurants close by.


Dinette was a spot that came recommended to us and we were so happy for it. If I lived in Wroclaw, I would happily be a repeat customer of this bright and open brunch spot at least once a week. We had the blinis with creme fraiche, smoked salmon, caviar and dill and a lovely salad with poached eggs. This is the type of spot you can easily go to for a nice quick healthy breakfast or lunch – a contrast to all the heavy local cuisine.


I had an odd craving for ramen and would have been happy for a bowl of soup with noodles. Luckily, I found Wshoku, which served up a surprisingly tasty ramen along with a large selection of sushi. I was surprised by the ramen broth because it’s always hit or miss in Europe with Asian cuisine. Turns out Wroclaw and Poland does a respectable job at it.

Izakaya Sushi Rynek

Izakaya Sushi was another spot that did Japanese well. The restaurant has seating right in the middle of a busy street, perfect for people watching. They offer fantastic and cheap lunch menu sets on weekdays from 12 to 4 pm that range from 26 to 38 PLN.

Pierogarnia Rynek

I usually avoid the many restaurants in a town’s main square since they are often tourist traps. Luckily Wroclaw had some exceptions to that rule. I really liked Pierogarnia Rynek, where you can enjoy delicious baked pierogies and wash it down with a cold beer. The boiled ones are good too, but I still dream about those baked pierogies now. A perfect spot for people watching.

Lot Kury

I’m a sucker for little cafes. Though not as cute as W Kontackie, Lot Kury is lovely spot to hide away with a book for a quiet lunch. The menu is simple, but the dishes are prepared well and I love the Paris cafe vibe. In the late afternoons and evening, it transforms into a lively cocktail bar.

Happy eating! If you’re traveling in Poland, check out my food guides for all the other cities. Looking for more travel inspirations? Scroll through some of the 450+ experiences on my bucket list. Maybe you’ll find your next adventure on there.
