Michelin Guide’s ‘Main Cities of Europe 2019’ has announced its top choices for Poland, distinguishing restaurants in Warsaw and Kraków with the publication’s prestigious culinary stars and other quality symbols.

The capital’s Atelier Amaro and Senses restaurants have both kept their stars for a further year, remaining the only establishments in Poland to hold the distinction. 

Three new places were awarded the prestigious fork and spoon symbols for interior décor, service and overall comfort.

The three new Warsaw localities in the rating are Chłodna 15 by Wilamowski (two forks and spoons), Europejski Grill (two forks and spoons) and Bez Gwiazdek (one fork and spoon). 

In total, the Michelin inspectors awarded 27 Warsaw restaurants, two with stars (one, plus three forks and spoons each) which have for years had a good reputation – Atelier Amaro and Senses.

In addition, Kieliszki on Hoża Street was awarded the Bib Gourmand for good quality and good value. 

In Kraków, 25 eateries were recognised by the guide with fork and spoon awards, with only one, Industrial Resto & Bar, dropping off the list.

Merely finding their establishments on the Red Guide’s famous list is a great success for restauranteurs and their staff.
