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!

I visit "U Szwejka" few times a year. Every time I sit inside, which is much cosier than a "tent" on a sidewalk. Interior is full of small rooms and corridors with tables next to windows or nicely decorated walls. I usually climb upstairs and sit for a long time. Food is excellent and it haven't changed for years. Be... More

We went as a large group (9 people) with no reservation, and they provided us with a table under the condition that we would vacate in 2 hours for when the table was reserved. Our waiter was great: nice, friendly and efficient. Food came quite fast and was really good. The food is more traditional and can be a bit... More

I have gone many times to Warsaw in the last 20 or so years, and this place never fails to amaze me. Typical Polish food, always delicious and very generous portions! In our visit in August, we had 3 of the popular dishes: duck, pork hock and potato cakes with goulash. All of them were delicious and we needed a... More

Even though you have to wait to be seated, as this place is always full of customers, you won't be disappointed! The food is very tasty, portions are huge,even over-sized so you have to be careful choosing your meal when you are not really hungry:-)Highly recommended:-)

We stumbled across the restaurant whilst having a walk on our first night in Warsaw. So glad that we did. We enjoyed the food and the singing. The big glass of beer went down well too.

Next door to the MDM in Constitution Square. Very popular with the locals. They do breakfast, lunch and dinner. Be prepared to queue for maybe 5-20 mins for a table. This place is busy for a reason. Great selection of Pollish and Eastern European dishes. The portions are massive. Before you go ordering a starter and a meal, I would... More
