“You will be in love with the traditional polish food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Great selection of traditional polish food for very reasonable prices. If you visit this place once you will return there over and over. No kidding! There are several Zapiecek in the city. All have a very authentic atmosphere and perfect polish meals. My wife an I really enjoyed the time spent in this place.

“Dellllllllicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Zapiecek is a restaurant chain in Poland - and it is definitely worth visiting one of its restaurants if you want the taste of Poland. I can't find the words to describe the extent to which I enjoyed my dinners (and I went to dine there twice). The choice is pierogi is stunning - I couldn't even imagine that you can have sweet pierogi with cottage cheese, raising and lemon peel. If you want to warm yourself, go for a house myod - served with a candle underneath to keep it hot. If you want an experience, order a local hot beer with cloves and raspberry juice - something that you won't regret or forget.
To make a long story short, I loved it!

“Pierogi in Warsaw? That's the place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

If you're looking for a climatic restaurant that serves very good (inexpensive) traditional Polish comfort food in Warsaw, Zapiecek should be on your to-go list. I've been there many many times (dined there solo and with friends) and in different locations throughout the city. My personal favorite dish on the menu is pierogi ruskie, both regular and those made with spelt flour.

“The best Pierogi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Pierogi is a Polish National Dish. No one should ever leave Poland without trying this delicious dumpling. And Zapiecek makes the best. Four locations in the Old Town, a couple in the city, more in other cities. Perfect and quite inexpensive. Give them a try. We did and enjoyed everyone of them. I had the meat and cabbage stuffed variety, my wife ordered the blueberry filled. Delicious and the options are endless. Superb.
