Perfect Mother's Day meal

This was my second time to the Royal Warsaw and the food is wonderful and plentiful. The portion sizes are quite large so remember this when you are ordering an appetizer.

Homemade, fresh and tasty food, nice beer/wine selection, generous portions, with a clean, friendly, and professional and unrushed atmosphere. The prices are very friendly as well! This restaurant never disappoints! I was there this time with a group... More

I visited Royal Warsaw for the first time yesterday and already can't wait to go back. My first impression was how crowded the place was at an off-time (late afternoon) on a warm, sunny spring Saturday. It is an elegant setting - white linen table cloths contrasting with dark wood and a bustling, attentive waitstaff in white aprons. The menu... More

Definitely worth a visit! Food tastes homemade, and there's live music (we went on a Saturday). Can get crowded, so make a reservation!

The food was outstanding and authentic, truly representative of some of the best of the old country. The restaurant is very clean, the atmosphere totally enjoyable, and the staff excellent.
