This is a perfect place to have a lunch during your stay in the Old Town in Warsaw. Big selection of restaurants, from cheap (like Bazyliszek) to more expensive (Fukier). Better stay away from "Kuchnia warszawska". If you are lucky you can enjoy Summer Jazz Festival for free.

Excellent! Very well kept and clean. A place to see in Warsaw. The sightseeing is an easy way to go through the main city attractions and coming back again.

Rebuilt after the War (WWII) the Old Town has beautiful buildings with restaurants & cafes placed every corner to cater for everyone's taste. Smell of cooking & crowd bristling with noise & conversation coupled with street musicians & baskers on glorious hot nights in August gave a festive occasion. Warsaw was glowing with tourists from all corners, very capable of... More

Very pleasant large square, with lots of attractive "Old looking" buildings to look at. Some Restaurants available, but more pricey than others we found. Well worth a visit.

In summer the square is covered with decks filled with with chairs, tables and umbrellas. The beauty of the buildings are lost with all the hustle and bustle. In Autumn we could see the buildings and it was as if the sqiare could breathe again. No matter what the season the market square is a great place to visit. The... More

Great place to eat and drink, if not a little expensive. Barbikan is a 1 minute walk away. We saw a dog resting in the fountain because it was so hot! Lots of history dotted around the place Well worth a visit!
