The place seems to be very popular, it was crowded when we went there, but somehow we succeed to got a table. The waiter recommended hotly baked pork knuckle, well, we took it. Huge portion, too big for two people, it was good but nothing special, what can you expect from knuckle? The whole place... read more

Food was ok, but our waitress Martyna was lovely. She was professional and didn't let the language barrier stop her. 10+

I was about to taste some czech food and beer for some time. Restaurant "U Szwejka" was a good choise. The service is quick and kind, dishes are being served quickly. That last one is even more impressive as the crowd there is very big. I can tell only good things about the food. It tastes pretty good and portions... More

Great food, especially recommended beef tartar and famous schnitzel which is huge. Be ready to to wait in a queue though, always crowds in there. Prices are really fair for the quality and portions

We were pleasantly surprised with great service and atmosphere at "U Szwejka". Live band was playing good old music, meals were prepared in a short time, portions were big, food was pretty good and after all waiter brought us a glass of Nalewka for free and it was a great finish of a lovely dinner. Also location is good since... More

We stopped by here at the weekend. Value for money it is brilliant ;) I had the captains platter which was like a mixed grill, for only £6 it was incredible. The location is perfect for people watching. The ambiance is of a great standard. Would recommend.

Ate there with a group of 8 and no one complained about the food. Set up to look like and old Czech hunting lodge and it works. Schnitzel was good and also "huge" as stated.

Very low quality of meat, the food is tasteless. They seem to use microwave a lot. Bug portions but who is gonna eat those stuff? Very bad restaurant! Totally not recommended.

After reading all the great reviews, I was totaly disapointed with this place. Liked the setting - very coasy, however the food was tasteless. They do have large portions and daily deals, however the waiter was unable to explain what the current promotion was so we could not take advantage. There are definately much more nicer places in Warsaw.

This place serves huge portions, and you have to be very hungry to handle that. The quality isn't good, simply average food. I can understand why some people get hyped about it, but I would rather have a more expensive, smaller, but well-made dish, from fresh ingredients.
