Marcin Filipkiewicz surprises gourmets with his own interpretation of Polish court cuisine. Thanks to his ingenuity and creative mind, traditional dishes gain a modern, innovative form and perfected taste. The climatic interior of a Renaissance tenement house on Kraków’s oldest street – Kanonicza – creates a unique atmosphere in itself. The comfort of the guests is ensured by perfectly trained waiters who talk about the dishes served here with passion and knowledge. There are only a dozen or so tables, so it is advisable to book in advance. Queen Bona Sforza, who tried to grow even artichokes on the Wawel Hill, would probably have a VIP table in Copernicus. The chef like nobody else is able to appreciate the value of fruit and vegetables – they can be found in almost every dish. The menu changes every month, especially to make sure the best and freshest products in a given season are used. In Copernicus, the first decision is the most difficult one: how many dishes to order in the tasting menu? Five? Seven? Or maybe twelve? The rest is better left to the chef, who will make sure that the flavour combination is not only perfect, but also surprising. It seems that ‘surprise’ is his middle name, so you should be prepared for a stunner, and certainly a pleasant one. Next to the dishes featured on the menu, sophisticated amuse-bouches, ingenious intermezzos and, finally, delicate pralines will appear on the table. PSST! The hotel roof, where you can sit down with a glass of wine, offers a view of the Wawel Castle.
