Most of the time when we’re traveling, we try cooking instead of eating out since it’s so much cheaper. In fact, we’ve found it’s one of the best ways to save money while traveling. But in Poznań, the restaurants were so delicious and affordable that we couldn’t resist eating out a ton! If you play your cards right, it’s entirely possible to get a nice dinner for two for under $10 USD.

Even better, there’s a really wide variety of restaurants. Of course, there are tons of Polish restaurants. But there’s also Italian, Japanese, American, Chinese, and so much more. It’s a foodie’s paradise!

Based on our week that we spent there, here are the 13 incredible restaurants in Poznan, Poland:

1. Pierożek i kompocik

Pierożek i kompocik is the perfect restaurant if you’re looking for an authentic Polish meal. With a stylish, modern interior, this restaurant has an atmosphere that is almost as great as the food. They also have a patio, but we really enjoyed sitting in the comfy booths inside.

The Ruskie Pierogi is a wonderful thing to order at Pierożek i kompocik. They’re warm, fresh and flavorful, and they’re overall some of the best pierogi we’ve had in Poland. To finish our meal, we tried a shot of fruity Polish vodka that was the perfect end to an already delicious meal.

2. Manekin

Crepes and cappuccinos from Manekin in Poznan, Poland

If you are looking for a delicious and affordable breakfast spot, Manekin is the place for you. Their delicious crepes are some of the best we’ve ever had. They also make a damn good cappuccino! This isn’t exactly surprising, seeing as they have some of the best reviews out of any restaurant in Poznań.

We ordered a sweet crepe with berries and mascarpone, a savory crepe with chicken and mozzarella, and two cappuccinos. All in all, our meal cost about $10 USD–a total bargain.

3. Pierozak Pierogarnia

There’s something to be said about seeing pierogies get made fresh in front of your eyes. Pierozak Pierogarnia provides that opportunity, with employees handmaking pierogi with different fillings at the front of the restaurant.

The menu has some really crazy pierogi fillings that you can order. Our favorite was the pumpkin, cottage cheese and cinnamon, but the duck and apple one was pretty good, too.

4. Ming Wok

Tofu fried rice from Ming Wok in Poznan, Poland

Ming Wok is a go-to restaurant for many locals when they’re craving Asian food. With cuisines ranging from Chinese to Vietnamese to Thai, there’s something for everyone. They have a beautiful dining area, but they also offer to-go if you’re hoping to score take-out for a lazy night in.

We tried both their beef pho and the tofu fried rice. Both were wonderful and very flavorful.

Japanese food in Poland!? Yeah, that was pretty much our reaction, too. But YetzTu has a reputation for excellence, serving up steaming hot portions of ramen and other Japenese delicacies.

8. Gołe baby

Burger and fries from Gole Baby in Poznan, Poland

When we got a craving for a burger one Saturday night, we decided to check out Gołe baby. This late-night burger spot is located on Wrocławska Street, which is one of the popular areas for drinking and partying in Poznan. So it’s no surprise that a killer burger place is located nearby to satisfy those cravings.

This is definitely a more casual spot, and seating is pretty limited. So while it’s not the best spot for a date night, it is a great spot to pick up a delicious and cheap meal. In addition to serving burgers, they also have fries with all sorts of toppings. Yum!
