Absolutely incredible vodka cocktails! Had two, the Lychee Martini and the Honey on Toast cocktails which were absolutely crisp and delicious! Attended with 4 others and three of us shared some small plates being the Salt and Pepper Squid, Potato Blintzes, Cevapcici and 12 Hour Roast Pork. All menu items were well presented, relatively quickly and were delicious. Highly recommend... More

This is a favourite due to the quaintness,the food especially the rice balls,honey prawns and pancakes ( savoury or sweet ) and my favourite drink...the gold finger!! the apple pie ( also a drink) isn't bad either.To get the full benefit of the dishes best to share and to have a few people to do this with for best value.

Had some time to kill on a Friday evening about 7pm and dropped in on the chance of a free table - in luck! Seemed to get busier as we were having our meals. Fairly simple smoked salmon salads and then pierogi. Food was served promptly and was great. Drink service could not be faulted and the vodka choices are... More

I liked the feel of the place, and the staff were really friendly, but most of the drinks were ordinary, and a few terrible.

We went at a table of four and shared many of the delights on offer from this interesting menu. We also sampled a great many of the cocktails on offer, each of which was a hit. The atmosphere here was intimate, and every staff member was a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended.

Funny thing, but the only few times we've been here is because we had a group of 8 and the next door cafe Dukes (where we really wanted to go) had an hour-long waiting period. The other two tables taken at Borsch,Vodka & Tears seemed to be people who suffered the same fate as us. The food here is Ok,... More

Delicious Polish food. A small place with a good ambiance, and huge variety of vodka's. The vodka was the highlight!

There are way too many restaurants in this culturally diverse gastronomic city to not eat in a new place and explore a new culture every single day for at least several years...! So this evening it was off to Poland-Down-Under for Borsch, Vodka & Tears. The place was packed; however, we saw an open two-seater table, and decided to see... More

Suggested by a friend of mine, my adult daughter and I learned a lot about the dozens maybe hundreds,of vodkas they had through a few taster selections, then satisfied our desire to sample Polish Cuisine with a batch of their delicious entrees- Cabbage rolls, Hungarian Lamb Rogout and Cevapcici with some salady stuff and shave beetroot. It was all so... More
