This restaurant serves classic Czech dishes! Interior in the restaurant is influenced by Czechoslovakia. There are three floors, comfortable seats and tables. Big portions served with delicious side dishes can be combined with different kind of beer. Atmosphere is really great. We are there few times during our short stay in Warszawa! Very good culinary experience! Recommended!

U Swejka remains one of our best memories when in Warsaw. First thing you notice, the restaurant is very well decorated and lively, there is often a live band playing music in it. Before you order, the waitress brings you some bread with some garlic and meat amuse-bouche that are really enjoyable. The dishes are served with surprising quantity, and... More

The place was very overcrowded with people queueing outside on the street, nevertheless the service was rather slow, although very nice and friendly. The interior of the place is very pleasant especially in the basement floor. The portions of food are insanely huge, but the taste was mediocre at best. Suitable place for big companies of beer-drinkers, but not a... More

Went as a group of 16 and they could not have been more welcoming, huge portions of food and excellent quality. Steak tartare is a real treat! Great value for money and was very glad of our choice of restaurant for the evening. Would definitely recommend. Bill was around £300 for 16 people to eat and drink great beer all... More

If you aren't this much into glamorous lounges, restaurants and cafes where they ask a lot of money and give you a humble portion of food — this is the perfect place to let yourself go. Funky interior and plentiful food, which, in addition, is very reasonably priced. I ordered a duck and they brought me HALF of a duck.... More

This place was packed and as soon as a table cleared it was filled by the next guests. We ordered stuffed cabbage and a few other Polish delights and loved it! We were very grateful that we stopped by and waited for our table!

We went there at 9:30pm but the restaurant was almost full, with just one table left. As we were hungry we wasted no time to order and the food came fast. The portion was extremely big. Eventually we ended up with half unfinished. The food quality was average and the taste was so so. Beer was excellent!
