“Great chow for good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2014

This place is awesome! My Polish mates laughed when I wanted to go in.... I think they felt it was very touristy, but the food was really top-notch. I had the little cup of "drinking" beetroot soup, which was delicious, and also the little meat dumplings, fried (I don't like the cheese ones, but that is personal preference!). It was certainly crowded, but that added to the atmosphere. Heavy, but delicious on a very cold day, and very good value. The waitresses were also very friendly, and very patient witg me not knowing any Polish. In fact, everybody seems to speak really great English! I will definitely be back at Zapiecek, and I am hapyp to see there seems ot be several brances around the city.

“Pierogi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2014

One of the best pierogi's I have ever tasted. Summer soups are really good also. Service is average but overall it is a nice quiet place at the edge of old town

“Good place to try national polish cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2014

This is definitely the best place in Warsaw to try polish cuisine. It is 5 cafe in the city. I visited 3 of them. And I advise you to visit it during the day, when it is not so crowded. Because cafes are small, and when it is completely full with people it feels like all the people are sitting together, because tables are placed very closely to each other. But when there is not to much people you will really enjoy the taste. Portion there are big. I could't eat one portion all alone.

“An extraordinary taste of typical polish cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Please take a while to stop in one of the restaurants of this chain. It is absolutely a must. There is also one that makes glute free cuisine. The service is not very fast, but the prices are low and the quality of food is super. A place where to come back!
