While Polish food's rep has been on the rise, Kraków's restaurant scene has become arguably the most competitive in the country thanks to 10 million visitors a year on average, all of whom want to try a taste of what the locals eat regularly. It's all culminated in Kraków being named the 2019 European Capital of Gastronomic Culture, a title quite frankly unthinkable for anyone who visited twenty years ago, but one that aptly illustrates just how far the local gastronomy market has come in recent decades. Below we list the most modern, innovative and inherently Polish restaurants in Kraków today. Whether you're a neophyte, or your babcia fed you rosół and bigos your entire childhood, you'll be surprised and delighted by how these restaurants are taking Polish cuisine to new heights. Smacznego!
