Rich Tradition

This restaurant is named after its former owner, 18th-century aristocrat Florian Fukier. Its intimate, fin de siecle interior has candles, thick curtains and antique furniture as well as fruit arrangements designed by the owner, Magda Gessler.

This tasteful design blends well with the rich menu offering Polish cuisine with strong international elements and an individual touch. The restaurant is frequented by politicians who seek privacy in the hidden corners or on the inner patio, whereas in the summer tourists flock to the patio located on the Old Town Market Square. Since U Fukiera is recommended by a number of good international guidebooks, the place teems with foreign guests too.

The menu offers a tender forest game pate (zl.20), salmon tartar seasoned with sesame seeds and grated horseradish (zl.68), delicious kolduns, or Lithuanian dumplings stuffed with meat, with herb dressing or baked on butter (zl.32), and a tench bouillon with thick cream mixed with dill (zl.22).

Oven-roasted carp with forest mushrooms and cream is a traditional Polish treat (zl.67), or if you do not fancy fish, you can choose veal chops with quail eggs and fresh cucumber and cream salad (zl.67), or perhaps something lighter, such as crepes stuffed with Russian crab and tomato (zl.70). For dessert, a poppy-seed cake with almond and amaretto cream is a must (zl.35).

U Fukiera, 27 Rynek Starego Miasta, (Old Town Square); to book call: 0-22 831-10-13, open every day from noon until the last customer
