Wroclaw will be host to several matches in the upcoming Euro 2012 Soccer Championship and it was home for me for a while too. If you’re coming to town for the football or passing through on a tour of Central & Eastern Europe, here’s my personal top ten places to eat in Wroclaw. You’ll find a mix of local and international cuisines represented here.
Polish cuisine with an international flair in a beautiful classic and authentic medieval cellar setting all comes together to create a great local experience.
ul. Rzeźnicza 24/25
Wide variety of tasty world cuisine dishes in a fun and happening setting, right in the middle of the main market square.
ul. Sukiennice 9a
The best Italian food hands down in Wroclaw, very fresh and authentic along with great wine list.
ul. Nożownicza 4
The top Asian option in Wroclaw, mainly Korean food but also a sushi bar. (turn down your speakers before clicking on the link – the site autoplays music!)
Ul. Kuznicza 43/45
The ideal summertime spot, beautiful terrace right on the Odra river and good Mediterranean food to boot.
ul. Księcia Witolda 2
Very good American type food, think an upscale TGI Friday’s so this is the place if you’re craving steaks and other meat dishes. It’s named after the beer that’s served there, from the family-owned Bernard brewery in neighbouring Czech Republic. You’ll find a few Czech specialities on the menu there too, a handy way to try some Czech cuisine if you’re not making a stop there on your tour.
Good for a fun night out and atmosphere. Mexican food has a long way to go in Poland but they make a respectable effort
ul. Szewska 61/62
Chunky wooden tables and vaulted ceilings so a true medieval experience. Main reason to go is for the Golonka (pork knee).
Rynek Ratusz 1
Pierogarnia Stary Mlyn
You are in Poland so you have to try pierogies and this the place to do so with a wide selection.
And for late night eats
Sometimes you forget to have dinner and it gets too late for a restaurant. When that happens, head to Setka – they’re open 24 hours and are definitely the best thing in town for after midnight eats, located at ul. Leszczyńskiego 4
