The 10 Best Restaurants In Wrocław's Old Town

Wrocław’s Old Town is an architectural masterpiece and its picturesque square ranks among the prettiest Old Town Squares in Poland. Coupled with the city’s famous Ostrów Tumski quarter, Wrocław continues to thrive as one of the most interesting and popular historic cities in Poland. It owes its unique and romantic atmosphere to the colourful tenement houses, located alongside the Oder river, and the charming bridges that lead to tiny islands. Charming architecture isn’t the only thing Wrocław has going for it; its food scene is memorable as well. Here are 10 unique and authentic dining experiences in Wrocław’s Old Town.
Lwia Brama
Restaurant, Polish, $$$$
This restaurant is located in the heart of Wrocław’s oldest quarter, Ostrów Tumski, in the cellar of a Renaissance building that used to be the residence of the Catholic canon of the Świętokrzyskie Chapter. The interior consists of stone arches and exposed brick walls, while the exterior is complete with an outdoor patio area. Lwia Brama offers a unique range of dishes that combine classic Polish cuisine with Mediterranean fare. Try the beef carpaccio, duck pierogi, seafood soup or Italian pasta with boletus mushrooms.

Klub PRL
Bar, Polish, $$$$
Sometimes dining out in Poland is all about the experience and the venue rather than just the food. With that in mind, head to the wonderful PRL. As you might have guessed by its name, this pub is a throwback to when the country was known as Polska Rzeczpospolita Ludowa during the Communist times. As such, expect the interior decor to feature busts of Lenin, old propaganda posters, gramophones and reminders of days gone by. On the menu, expect good prices (for a restaurant in the Old Town Square) and lots of good Polish cuisine including pierogi, bigos and zurek. By night it transforms into a great vodka, cocktail and beer hangout. It is such a popular place that it has also been featured in the Best PRL Pubs in Poland list.
