One of the best restaurants in Warsaw! The staff is kind and enthusiastic, and the food is just one of the kind. I suggest ordering the big schnitzel - it is worth trying.

Sitting outside but sheltered, watching the people walk passing by, we both ordered the special: Argentinian steak with fries, and one mixed salad. First some bread with white cheese and minced neat was brought. Very fast the order came (not too fast). Perfectly nedium grilled argentinian steaks, nice and juicy, with a pepperlike sauce setved separately. During the meal a... More

The food at U Szwejka is always good--as a solid central European basic nutrition with good amounts of beer. Lot's of meat that means, but vegetarians won't go hungry.

Went on a Friday night about 8 pm, no wait, got seated right away. We sat upstairs for the first time, nice atmosphere but it was warm compared to the other levels. Food came out very fast and done to perfection, the schnitzel was huge and the fries were very good. The potato pancakes were absolutely amazing, truly traditional. The... More

We were recommended this place by a family member who'd been going there ever since he was a student, the short queue outside the door obviously testifies to how good this place is. The waiter was both fun and friendly, he gave good recommendations and pointers towards the daily deals (including half price beers). The schnitzel was so big that... More

Went here for lunch on a Saturday with my wife. We took both the Saturday special (Bramborak = +- Czeck Wiener schnitzel) and a small beer (=0.4l) and a large beer (=1l) for 66zlotys (16€) ... no complaints for this price ! Relatively fast and good ser-vice. Affordable prices. Outmoded austrian interior, no frills. This is a popular restaurant with... More

My father and I ate here and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The portions are huge, especially the officers platter, and the food is very tasty. Price wise it is very good value. Will definitely go eat here again if I am back in Warsaw.

Just fantastic. The potato salad that comes with the enormous schnitzel is worth coming for on its own. The chicken soup is also possibly the best hangover cure (bar more booze) yet invented.
