5 Best Restaurants in Czestochowa, Poland

Café & Restaurant Dobry Rok

$$

Just off Stanisław Staszic Park is this smart restaurant, which serves pan-European cuisine. The wine list is well-curated, but wine production in Poland is quite small-scale, so the wine served here is from major growing regions worldwide. If days of tucking into meat and potatoes are taking their toll, try Dobry Rok's grilled dorada, nicely marinated in ginger with lemon grass and served with rice and vegetables or a refreshing salad topped with octopus, avocado, and orange slices. There are plenty of meat options here, too, and picky eaters can choose from a handful of pastas. There are a few outdoor tables, and enjoying breakfast here with a hot cup of good coffee is a nice way to kick-start a day of sightseeing.

Hattori Hanzo

$$$

Like manna from heaven, this Japanese restaurant offers a fresh alternative to the ubiquitous traditional Polish cuisine. On the menu are nigiri, maki, gunkan, sashimi, and assorted items like chicken or fish teriyaki, mixed tempura, and even a few Korean dishes like bulgogi (thinly sliced meat, marinated then grilled). The sets offer the best value. For dessert, munch on banana nutella maki.

Restauracja U Braci

$$

Next to Jasna Góra is this bright restaurant serving Mediterranean dishes in a warm, friendly environment. Two brothers run the restaurant, and from their kitchen come heaping antipasti platters, chewy pizzas sized for two, and several tender cuts of meat. There are good vegetarian options here, especially the beetroot soup with ravioli. The crème brûlée makes an ambrosial end to a well-priced meal.

Sweet Home & Café

$

Make a pit stop at this quaint café for coffee, tea, smoothies, and scrumptious baked goods. In warmer months the cheery garden, furnished with yellow chairs and round pink tables from Belgium, fills with locals eagerly tucking into beautiful meringues topped with berries and mint leaves, and cooling off with orange and avocado smoothies. Come winter, you can curl up in one of the overstuffed armchairs and sip thick hot chocolate with mini marshmallows while feasting on pumpkin cake, all under the watchful eyes of Czarka, the café's resident black cat.

Topollino

$$

A short walk from Częstochowa Museum, this light-filled eatery opens at 7:30 am on weekdays, making it a great place to bring early-rising kids—or for those suffering from jet lag to load up on coffee and eggs with a side of Wi-Fi. The menu covers the classics with pasta, pizza, fish and meat dishes, and salads. Start with the antipasti board and end with tiramisu for a meal that hits all the right notes.
