“I should have listened to the cab driver”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Very slow and ambivalent service. Soup and salad came quickly, then....almost an hour for polish staples, pierogi and golomki. Pretty high price for the food. After we left my daughter told me that my annual recreation of grandmas pierogi are much better. Fortunately we found great polish food in poland later in the trip. It was quite crowded with a mixture of tourists and locals, so maybe we missed something...

“Goulash...it's good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

I asked for a recommendation from the Hilton hotel concierge, and was glad to have taken their advice to go to Folk Gospoda. I ordered the beef goulash, which was pretty darn good. It came in a crock-like bowl, with a nice flaky crust baked on top. I added a side of gnocchi to dip in the goulash, at recommendation of the waitress. which really paired well. This meal reminded me of my mom's beef stew, which has a warm place in my heart.

“Simply Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We ate there so many times. The food is delicious especially pierogi and meat.
It's not one of the cheapes restaurant in Warsaw but for who is used to euro, the change in zloty is very convenient :)
It's a very popular restaurant so you would need a reservation if you are a group of people or if you go there on weekends or holidays.
Very often there are musical groups who play Polish folk music... amazing! :)

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Yet another lovely traditional meal here. Would recommend the beer tower. Shame the bar shut early so I couldn't try the vodka flavours. Service was good and the food very tasty. Great value for money too.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Probably the best place in Warsaw with Polish cuisine. Great service, wonderful decor inside. Big portions, so be careful because you can overeat there...
