About Restaurant Farina
"I cook with passion
to please my Guests."
Monika Turasiewicz, Chef
My name is Monika Turasiewicz and I am the chef of Farina Restaurant. The art of hospitality is my passion as well as my family tradition. With my team I am making every effort to make Farina restaurant a unique place. We are delighted to run the restaurant in the interiors of the historic palace tenement in the very heart of the city. Old ceilings and vaulting, renaissance and manneristic columns remind us that Cracow has been not only a birthplace of tradition but also a worldwide place, adapting new trends and concepts. I always wanted our restaurant to develop with the spirit of such ideas.
Fish is the base of Farina's menu as well as the flour. That is why they appear on our restaurant's logo. Both are not only healthy but also very useful for thousands of intriguing dishes. Flour, on our logo represented with a sack, symbolizes pasta, ravioli, delicate rolls prepared in our kitchen as well as traditional Polish dumplings. These fresh, natural ingredients influenced by temperamental and passionate culinary interpretation gain a unique character and inspire the cooks to try extra ordinary combinations.
Everyone who visits Krakow will find Farina Restaurant with ease. While sightseeing the Old Town, it is enough to follow one of the most beautiful path among all of the wonderful streets that surround Cracow's Main Square. St John Street is a well-known avenue amid Cracovians. Its atmosphere has been created by historic architecture and former aristocratic headquarters of Czartoryski, Lubomirski, Popiel and Wodzicki magnate families.
