A must visit while in Nurnberg. Good service, great portions, good value for money and a very nice setting. What more does one want?

“Dinner with scenic view on Nuremberg castle”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Kopernikus is well known for it's beergarden in the old Nuremberg city wall. We wanted to reserve a table there but could only get a couples table in the old Wehrgang. That's basically you are sitting in the way on top of the city wall. Turned out to be really nice because we had a view on the Nuremberg castle during sunset. That's really a nice authentic atmosphere.
If you get a place in the Wehrgang you have to know that this is a public way so people are passing by. This didn't bother us as the amount of people was really less (every 5 minutes some people).
Food was very good as I loved to taste some polish Bigos again. Service was very good if you take the German scale (you need to let people know if you need something). I had a beer specialty which comes in a bottle and you get a stone-mug for it. It was very tasteful.
After we finished our dinner we did another beer in the beer-garden. This beer-garden is really what you will love as it's nicely surrounded by the old city wall and extremely busy. You will not be the only one who wants to enjoy a beer with open sky at late night.
Gave this location as 5 star as this is an authentic location which has different seating which are both in itself extraordinary. The food is not the 5 star criteria as this is a beer-garden atmosphere and you don't expect high cuisine. But still I loved the polish style and had nothing to complain.
This place is a no-brainer if you have some guests and want to have a nice evening in an uncomplicated atmosphere.

“Huge portions of less than mediocre food”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

The main style of the restaurant is polish, but naturally including the Nuremberg influence. This means that there's a possibility to get non-german food there. The good thing is that the portions are really huge: I couldn't finish mine even though being hungry beforehands. The bad thing is that the overall quality or taste of the food is mediocre or even slightly below that. Another positive thing was that it was possible to get beer from smaller breweries in the region and not only from the largest one in the town.
