The Black Duck is the result of our passion for traditional, home-made Polish cuisine. Drawing on previous experience, we create a place that will welcome our guests with a nice, relaxed atmosphere and a warm, friendly approach. At your disposal we offer three dinning rooms reflecting the informal and comfortable atmosphere of the restaurant, and on sunny days also a quiet patio.
Our restaurant is located on the charming Poselska Street. It leaves the bustling Grodzka Street which connect the Wawel Royal Castle with the beautiful Main Market Square.
The restaurant is located on the ground floor of a 17th century tenement. Earlier, the Ossolinski Manor was located on the property, which burned down in 1648. In 1692, a house of cathedral nossalists was erected on the plot. At the beginning of the 19th century, the building was rebuilt and a “Zajazd pod Czerwonym Orłem” was founded. It burned down during the great fire of Krakow in 1850 and was rebuilt in 1862. Historical building entered into the register of monuments number A-952 of September 2, 1999.
The culinary traditions of our country is over a thousand years history. Thanks to the richness of vegetables, fruits, mushrooms, fish and meat, Polish cuisine abounds in a variety of forms and flavors. Poland’s rich and dynamic history was conducive to bringing new spices and vegetables, and the passion for good food resulted in the search for new recipes.
In our restaurant we refer to these traditions. We reach for both well-known flavors of home-made Polish cuisine and dishes typical of Lesser Poland. We attach great importance to products and their origin. Proven local suppliers guarantee the quality of the ingredients of our dishes, which translates into their authentic, unique taste.
Our speciality is duck dishes. This meat is valued among connoisseurs around the world and has fantastic taste qualities. It works perfectly well in many ways, which is why our menu includes starters, soups and salads as well as main dishes with it.
We invite you to a table for a Polish feast in a home-style.
