“The worst restaurant ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We were there trying to taste some traditional polish food and we found an expensive menu, a table without napkins and an awful service. We went to another restaurant after leaving the half of our food on the dishes. Totally not recommended. (We paid 3,5€ for a liter of tap water)

“barbakan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

good for a touristic fast lunch. Good choice of polish dishes but not so well-finished. Pierogi are not the best We've tryed and soups quite poor. Prices rather convenient so it is a good place for a fast meal without great expecting

“Simple and great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

If u look for a restaurant where the locals go, then go here for simple and great Polish dishes. Low key ambience, between the old and new town...

“Great location and best Polish food I had in Warsaw”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

When you come to Warsaw, the first thing you should notice is that most of the restaurants are Italian. There are a couple of strictly Polish restaurants in the general "tourist" areas of Nowy Swiat and Old/New Old Town. This place is one of them. It is great for having a coffee mid afternoon and, of course, dinner. I had the perogie's (meat with bacon bits - aka cracklings) and the cheese platter appetizer. I could have had only the appetizer. The portion was massive! For the cost I thought it would be one slice of may three types, but it was 5 types and each was 25 grams or more (the blue cheese was the best). Even though I was about to explode after eating all the cheese, it was still a pleasure to eat the perogies. They were basically plain (a little bit of onion and bacon bits) filled with meat and delicious. In retrospect, they could have used a tiny bit of salt or butter. But good nonetheless! I recommend trying this place as the decor and ambiance are strictly polish - not catering to the hipsters or tourists.
