New Michelin Guide Restaurants in Krakow

Food lovers, dust off your best cutlery and iron your napkins – Krakow now boasts 17 restaurants in the world-renowned Michelin Guide.

The new edition of the gourmets’ bible includes the best of the city’s eateries, which will spend a year basking in the glory before being assessed again for the next edition.

The restaurants are Trzy Rybki, Copernicus, Wentzl, Ancora, Unicus, Resto Illuminati, Szara, Cyrano de Bergerac, Pod Baranem, Jarema, Trufla, La Campana, Farina, Wesele, Miód Malina, Kawaleria, and Del Papa.

However, three previously listed restaurants – Pod Różą, Szara Kazimierz and C.K. Dezerter dropped out.

Katarzyna Cooney, of Resto Illuminati, a newcomer to the guide this year, told Gazeta Wyborcza: “This is a huge honour. The restaurant opened in December 2009, and we wanted to create a place where people would want to come to eat good food, listen to good music, and relax. We are happy because we have regular guests who appreciate it.”

    Umm… seventeen restaurants in Krakow are now *mentioned* in the Michelin Guide but so far no restaurant in Poland has even one Michelin stars. Maybe you could check your facts!

      One star was awarded to Atelier Amaro in Warszawa! http://www.atelieramaro.pl

      Yes, please check your facts!

      (I always found the food in Krakow better than in W-wa in any case).

      I totally agree that the title of the article is a bit confusing (even without the spelling mistake) as all of these restaurants are mentioned in the guide – not starred.

    Have been in most of the restaurant mentioned in this article (as well as in few starred restaurants outside Poland) and really think that these restaurants deserve to be mentioned in the guide. To receive official star (as Atelier Amaro did), the restaurants would need to pay attention to different things than food – silver cutlery (just to mention one example) is nowadays must in most of the Michelin star restaurants.

    I can not wait for visiting Atelier Amaro in Warsaw to have perspective to compare above in the article mentioned restaurants to first Polish restaurant with actual star.

    If I am not mistaken, nowhere in the article does it say that any of these restaurants have a Michelin star so maybe those who made such comments should check their facts, possibly by reading the article thoroughly? :)

      The article was updated, I’m guessing they did mention stars before. :-)

    Michelin stars do not make it a good place to eat.You can have fantastic food in wonderful surroundings but it can all be ruined by untrained front of house staff.eg rude, abrupt, uncaring.unwilling staff ,which seems to be frequently the case in my 6 years here,B.W.W.retired restaurant management and staff trainer..
