Quite a launch party this place: according to legend the opening night back in 1364 was attended by five kings and nine princes. Since then it’s been one esteemed guest after another, with former diners including De Gaulle, Bush, Castro and other world leaders, as well as starlets like Sophie Marceau and Kate Moss. The immaculate interiors of original period furnishings, tapestries, oil paintings and incredible timber ceilings aren't too dissimilar from a tour of Wawel Castle (making it a perfect backdrop for the frequent Chopin concerts) and you can expect a royal treatment from the staff. The seriously high-end menu is based on the traditional feasting habits of the Polish monarchy, but it hasn't failed to adopt modern influences as well, meaning you'll eat like a king and remember the experience - one you could only have in Kraków - for quite a long time. If you aren't ready for a white glove dinner, you can now visit their champagne bar.
