Directions to Copernicus Restaurant
Kanoniczna Street, which runs towards Wawel parallel with Grodzka Street, is arguably Krakow's prettiest, and provides the location for one of the city's - if not the entire country's - finest restaurants. Copernicus, the Michelin recommended restaurant in the exclusive hotel of the same name, is somewhere where the art of fine dining in beautiful surroundings is very much alive and flourishing.
The hotel is one frequently chosen by the famous and influential - George W. Bush, Helmut Kohl and Prince Charles are among the notable names in the visitors' book - for its discreet comfort and luxury, and its excellent views of the Old Town and the Royal Castle. Fortunately, non-residents can experience some of this by dining in the restaurant, which boasts renaissance ceilings, genuine frescoes and a charming glass-covered courtyard.
More importantly, the kitchen is in the very capable hands of Head Chef Marcin Filipkiewicz, who has won multiple awards. Taking Polish royal cuisine as the starting point, the talented team are always looking for innovative interpretations and unique twists on traditional classics. Each month the restaurant presents a 'tasting menu' in 5-, 7- or 12-course versions, each at a fixed price and representing a delicious exploration into the culinary arts. For those with smaller appetites there is also an excellent lunchtime menu. It goes without saying that a restaurant of this stature keeps an excellent cellar, and the discerning guest will have no difficulty in finding suitable wines to accompany their meal.
If you're on the lookout for a dinner 'truly to remember', and a marvellous souvenir of the finest that Poland can offer in both cuisine and ambience, then a visit to Copernicus is imperative.
