Krakow Restaurants
The Wierzynek Restaurant in Krakow is the place to go if you want to dine like a king. The list of past diners includes royalty, politicians, and other famous people from all over the world. Each room is decorated in a different theme with elegant touches like antique weaponry and artwork on display. The duck liver with flaming apple and honey mead sauce appetizer is presented beautifully and melts in your mouth. If you're looking for a main course that is different but not too daring, the saddle of roe deer with celery root and garlic purée is served with flavorful dumplings swimming in juniper sauce.

The name of Krakow's Chlopskie Jadlo means "peasant kitchen" and this restaurant has rustic décor that creates the perfect backdrop for serving old Polish recipes that have been enjoyed for centuries. Don't turn your nose up at the animal lard; when slathered onto hearty bread, it becomes a delicious spread with a succulent flavor you won't soon forget. The cabbage rolls stuffed with meat are an excellent rendition of a very traditional and tasty Polish food staple.

Krakow's Pod Aniolami, which means "under the angels", is a charming restaurant that occupies the basement of an ancient goldsmith. There is a heavy emphasis on grilled meat here, with wild boar and pigs' knuckles on offer for more adventurous diners. Sheep's milk cheese is transformed into something heavenly after some time on one of the restaurant's specialized grills. Don't forget to try their sublime pierogi, which have won the Krakow Pierogi Championship for several years in a row.

Baltic Coast Restaurants
Restaurant Targ Rybny in Gdansk is a marvelous waterfront restaurant that serves fresh seafood in Poland's Baltic Coast area. Delicate, flavorful fish makes up much of the menu here, with Baltic cod, oysters, sea bass, pike, and red snapper enjoying immense popularity among diners. You might want to start off the meal with a satisfying asparagus soup. If you're not fond of fish, the succulent prawns in garlic sauce are a noteworthy alternative. An impressive selection of local beers is perfect for washing it all down.
