The restaurant was established in 2014 at 5 Bocheńska Street in the same spot where there was a wine warehouse a century ago. The owners wanted to live up to this legend. They wished to bring back to life something that already existed, on top of creating a place of the highest standard, starting with the people who work there: the chef, the cooks, the sommelier, the waiters, right down to every dish on the menu. The dishes are characterised by a bold combination of flavours, textures, and excellent taste, and are made with fresh produce bought from well-known local suppliers. The consistent philosophy of running a restaurant and the belief that food is meant to give joy made Bottiglieria 1881 the first Michelin-starred restaurant in Kraków. Its menu includes Mangalica with grits and peppers, deer with mushrooms and herring with horseradish and pear. We should add that, besides the excellent food, in the ‘bottling room’ (as the place is called) you can test excellent wines, also from Poland. They come from organic cultivation, from winemakers with a passion for the environment.
