Szeroka Street is for many people the heart of Kazimierz, and in the summer there is a wide choice of restaurants and cafés with outdoor terraces where you can sit and enjoy the view. One of the most famous is the Rubinstein, named after Helena Rubinstein, founder of the cosmetics company that bears her name and who was born in the house next door to the restaurant in 1870.
Attached to the hotel of the same name and fully open to non-residents, the Rubinstein restaurant has a glazed patio interior comfortably furnished in muted shades. The menu draws its inspiration from around the world, but the dominant themes are traditional Polish and Mediterranean cuisine. Relying on the freshest ingredients the menu varies according to the season, with items such as beef loin served with apricot terrine and balsamic sauce, or perch served on pumpkin mousse with a spinach and squid duo.
Needless to say, there's a fine wine cellar to accompany these delights, both in contents and appearance - the arched brick enclosing the bottle racks providing the perfect ambience - and there's some decidedly fancy desserts to follow. Finally, the bar offers particularly excellent fresh-ground coffee as well as a full range of cocktails.
This fine old townhouse has been beautifully renovated in recent years, and there's one further treat in store. Take the lift to the very top of the building and you'll come out onto a large roof terrace with sweeping views all over Kazimierz and Krakow. Great for an alfresco lunch away from the crowds, or perhaps a romantic cocktail at sunset, this is truly a special spot.
