If you want to stay with us in the „regular“ best places to eat in Wroclaw, let us get started and explore some great restaurants in Wroclaw together!
1. Restauracja Wrocławska
Alright, now we are starting with some more traditional dishes that are connected to Silesia and Poland.
No matter if you are looking for Hekele (Tatar made from Hering with eggs, bacon, onions and pickles) – here you will find the classics of Silesian cuisine perfectly prepared.
In the picture we are showing you the real Wroclawian Bigos with different kinds of meat, red cabbage, raisins and apple. Highly recommended!
But of course there are many other traditional options available, just be aware that it is very meat-heavy cuisine and vegans better find another place here.
It is located directly in the city center, easy to find and navigate here.
2. Whiskey in the Jar
Directly located at the main square of Wroclaw, is this another option for the meat lovers from our readers.
Who likes the loud buzzing of steaks on lava stone, found the matching church in Wroclaw to his/her religion just here. Great sides as well (you have to try the beetroot with feta cheese!) are completing the experience here.
Of course – where steaks are, burgers are normally not far away and the same goes here. We also highly recommend the burgers! And did we mention the Whiskey-Cocktails yet? Of course, have one of these – many variations are created just for you….
Although in normal times it is quite touristy and not the most local spot, we like it and keep coming back. This way to Whiskey in the Jar please!
You might have already read about our love for Georgian food in the best street food of Wroclaw. It is one of the few countries that does not have hundreds of pizza, kebap, burger and fries places all over. Georgians love their regional food culture and there is a good reason for that.
At Chinkalnia you can taste the unspoiled food culture from this beautiful country. We recommend to start with the eggplants & walnuts cream, served with pomegranates. As main dish you can pick between some traditional meet based dishes or try the special baked oven bread. This is typically prepared and baked on the wall inside of a big stone oven.
One of the main delicacies similar to Polish cuisine are Chinkali. These dumplings are typically filled with meat, spices and coriander. In the filling you have a little bit of broth. As you eat them with hands, you can find a little manual on the table instructing you how to eat them. For vegetarians there are also options with cheese filling. All are super tasty.
Two locations of Chinkalnia are available in Wroclaw:
#1 at Plac Wolności 9 very close to the four denominations district, next to the national forum of music
#2 at Sukiennice 6 located directly at the Market Square in the city centre
You are looking for the best sushi in Wroclaw? Well, after Noriko on our fine dining list this is the spot where you can find it. It is not exactly located in the city centre around the most famous attractions of Wroclaw, but a visit is highly recommended.
Yemsetu is one of the true local hidden gems that you most likely would not find in the tourist information maps. The restaurant only has four (or five) tables, is very cozy and intimate. You better call them for a reservation 🙂
We recommend you to share some of the sushi sets, where you get plenty of different options straight to your table. As starter the miso soup is amazing. The desert menu is changing depending on availability but our all-time favourite is the mango sticky rice.
Don’t miss the tea selection if you have to drive back home or are just not into alcoholic beverages. You best navigate to Yemsetu by bus and get off at Kasprowicza. Alternatively taking a car or taxi will be the best option. See more details on how to get around in Wroclaw here.
If you want to use google maps to navigate, just click here: Plac Piłsudskiego 5. In summer, a nice walk along the Odra river towards the best sushi in Wroclaw is a great idea too! Remember, there are beach bars on the way to have a little break…
5. Browar Stu Mostów
The brewery of the hundred bridges is certainly a great spot to enjoy beer. But also at the highest levels of gourmet experience is their kitchen! You might expect typical bar and brewery food like burgers, fries, and similar fast food. But not at all!
With their tiny kitchen they are delivering an always changing menu, which never disappoints. Well, it disappoints only if you get there because you want to try some dish again and then the new menu is already there. But even then, you will be amazed by something new!
As starter you have to try the malt pretzel which is a consistent part of the menu. It is served with caramelized onions and a cream cheese that must have been made by god himself. Also don’t miss to go for some of the tatar appetizer options. A picture of the pretzel is available in our article about the best craft beer in Wroclaw.
As the main menu is changing, we do not want to recommend you a dish here where you might be disappointed to not get it. But be assured, every choice is a good one.
Browar Stu Mostów is located at Jana Długosza 2. That is a bit outside of the city centre, but by tram you will get there perfectly fine. As it is not far away from Yemsetu, the same comment is valid here: In summer, we recommend to have a walk along Odra, enjoy a break at a beach bar. And then finally arrive to the best brewery in Wroclaw.
6. Ragu Pracownia Makaronu
Slowly we are getting to the favourite cusine from many many people. Italian! Of course we could recommend you lots of pizza spots in Wroclaw, but if you are looking for pasta, Ragu Pracownia Makaronu is your choice.
All the pasta is home made and you will find lots of options. We love the ones that combine Italian and Polish cusine – try some options with mushrooms! And of course, as it is Italian food – do not miss the cannoli as desert!
The best pasta in Wroclaw is available at Sienkiewicza 34A. Best combined with a nice walk during the sunset across Ostrów Tumski. From the city center it will take you 15-20 minutes to get here.
7. Pinto Peri-Peri
Have you ever heard about francesinha? It is the Portugese answer to being hungry. Why? Because this sandwich has everything in it. It has sausage, steak, ham and is covered by cheese and a dark tomato beer sauce. Sometimes you might also get an egg on top of it. And this might not be enough, so fries come along with it too.
Okay, we did not start with our favourite dish here, but if you are really, really hungry, you should give it a try 🙂 Apart from that, at Pinto Peri-Peri you will get amazing codfish or the famous piri piri chicken. We recommend those options and to go with a traditional portugese soup as starter. Finish the evening with the best vanilla tarts in the world: Pastel de Nata.
The prestigious address Uniwersytecka 11/12 is already suggesting where you can find the best Portugese food in Wroclaw. Just on the back side of the university. Almost zero minutes from the city centre 🙂
UPDATE from August 2021: Currently this restaurant is closed (Covid). We will observe the situation and then decide if we need to remove it or if it will re-open.
Obviously most restaurants at the market square have a bit higher prices than the average and normally the quality is only average.
Nevertheless, there is one hidden gem that we can highly recommend if you want to enjoy a view on the historic and beautiful townhall. With Bernard, you will be served with great Czech dishes, interpreted in a modern way.
Together with the view and a great selection of beer and wine, it is a really cool spot for business dinners in Wroclaw but also any other special reason to treat yourself.
Find it at Rynek 35, just opposite of the townhall. Don’t miss the cozy wintergarden.
