An unforgettable gastronomic experience that conquered our palates and hearts

Italian journalist and traveler Davide de Corzent ( about a visit at Albertina restaurant in Krakow: Immersed in the marvelous historic center of Krakow, a UNESCO heritage site, the Albertina Restaurant elegantly combines modern design with a touch of the past. With its splendid exposed brick walls, wooden furniture, and fresh flower vases on every table, the ambiance is truly captivating. However, it’s the cuisine that steals the show, pleasantly surpassing all expectations.

Petit Futé 2023 – Albertina

We are pleased to announce that ALBERTINA Restaurant & Wine has been included in the publication of the new Petit Futé „Cracovie” edition 2023.

L’avis du Petit Futé sur ALBERTINA RESTAURANT & WINE: Réputé sur la scène gastronomique, l’Albertina séduit par sa carte de son chef, pensée pour ses accords mets et vins (le caviste viendra entre chaque plat vous en suggérer un nouveau). Le menu met en avant la richesse du terroir polonais, avec une belle part accordée au gibier et au poisson. On y mange très bien, les plats gastronomiques sont maîtrisés et la présentation agréable. La décoration, très (trop ?) sobre, vous permet de vous concentrer sur votre repas. Prenez un dessert.


Albertina Restaurant & Wine – Restaurant Kraków, Poland. WHITE STAR VENUE – Albertina Restaurant & Wine has a wine list approved by Star Wine List, and is therefore listed as a White Star.

Depuis 15 ans, Grzegorz Fic officie dans les restaurants les plus prestigieux de Cracovie en Pologne, dont L’Albertina. Découvert par la délégation limougeaude invitée au rassemblement des Villes créatives de l’Unesco l’an passé, le chef étoilé polonais a fait montre de son talent ce week-end à Limoges pour cette 8e édition de Toques & porcelaine.


Our first choice for dinner last night at Art Restaurant went sideways unfortunately so off we went to option two, which luckily wasn’t too far off. And pierogi was on the menu. Albertina was in lists of recommended places in Krakow and from how it looked online it was definitely worth a detour. I held our first dinner out in Poland with much anticipation – from the much-talked about low prices to the great food and service (…)

With an array of modern hotels, restaurants and boutiques, there’s plenty to discover in Krakow. For many, a visit to Krakow is like stepping back in time.

But dig a little deeper and you’ll uncover a contemporary side to this ancient city, with a host of hip hotels, restaurants and boutique shops to discover.

Hot dining – Albertina Restaurant & Wine.

This is fine dining with a touch of hipster. High-end but vehemently unstuffy, this airy, light-filled space is all bright whites, exposed brickwork and wooden beams.
