I had an Argentinian beef steak at this restaurant together with french fries and two beers. Oh and the dessert too. The food quality is very good and I spent in total something like 11€. NOTHING. I would highly recommend this, even if the staff is just not that kind. They won't speak in English to you and not even... More

One of the best places you can go to eat really well. Extremely nice service. Great food. Good prices - especially meal of the day. And really cool part is alcohol given to your bill.

very nice place, live music, cheap abd quite tasty. to be noted: for groups over 10 people you must select a menu when making your reservation. On the plus side: you can taste a selections of dishes (everyone shares dishes served on the table), on negative side: you csnt order what you want... This place is always packed: you need... More

Traditional Polish food, so I guess I shouldn't have taken a steak.. Medium steak was raw and very moist. Pierogi for starters was really really fatty. My bf had better choices and he liked the food so therefore four stars (I would've given three). The athmosphere was cosy and nice. And prices very reasonable!

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
