This is a cross between a beer Keller and a restaurant. I'm told its Czech in style but it whatever it is it was certainly busy. We went on a Sunday and the waitress at the door gives you a table number, then you find the table. We were down in the cellar. There are deals everyday and Sunday is... More

This is the most popular place for tasteless masses. It's actually pretty decent place if one wants to get a beer in a nice atmosphere, but anyone who think the food here tastes good - must usually be satisfied with microwave food. The portions are huge and the price is really cheap for that amount. However, the quality is simply... More

If you love meat and especially pork, U Szwejka is the place to go in Warsaw. For a pretty cheap price you will come out of this place full (and drunk). Not the place to go for a romantic date but totally worth it with friends! Its so noisy! Totally recommended. PS: booking is advised as it is pretty popular... More

Don't forget about booking a table - place seems to be very crowded:) Very good food (although next time I'll order a meal for kid - it's just too much), very nice waitress, Czech atmosphere and music - I love this place!

A group of 5 males from England tried this place on a freezing cold Friday night in February and weren't disappointed! Most staff spoke a little English as our Polish was non existent and an English menu was available. Superb value, mammoth portions, I tried the Officers Platter and could not finish it, all the meats you could think of... More

Great place in the center of Warsaw, very crowded, especially during evening. Good value for money, I like these special days, when some dishes have reduced price, great idea! Lots of good beer! There is also separate room for smokers. Highly recommend this place.

And every waiter and waitress speak English, very cheap, but a waitress in black clothes is not friendly, in frozen cold evening, she insist that we should be outside when waiting for table, and she did this in Polish, it really makes us feel unconfortable:(. Ustbus@gmail.com

Many people call it the 'gut buster' in the previous reviews. Yes it is and so it would be if they went to visit their polish friends at home. You are presented with more than you can eat, and so you would be on a private visit at someone's house. Same with drinks. You will eat more than you can... More
