We stopped by here on a saturday afternoon just to fill up on a couple of orders of beef tartar. First the maitre d' would not let us in without reservation, he said they were full. pointing out that we were just here for the tartar we finally got him to sit us in one of the rooms ( which incidentally was empty ). The tartar consisted of a small portion of prime beef with all the necessary sides. It was good, but again it was a small portion. Prices do not reflect the sizeof the dishes. Service was fast and friendly. They have many interesting dishes on their menu, give them a try but don't forget to make reservations.

Had dinner here with my Polish partner on our last evening in Warsaw on 2 Jan 2013. The food was excellent, if not a little pricey for Warsaw, but you are paying for the location and the setting. two course dinner for two with a bottle of wine £50 GBP. The rooms are decorated in impressive style and the service is friendly. Would certainly go back next time we are in Warsaw.

We went to 'Polka' restaurant for Christmas Day lunch after a nice walk along the amazingly decorated streets of Old Town. We'd just walked in without reservation. The restaurant looked busy but the waiter found us table for two in one of the rooms. The restaurant consists of many differently decorated rooms, all in traditional style. They had a warm, cosy, informal feel.
The restaurant serves mainly Polish traditional food but the menu choice offers a quite good variety of foods. But not much choice of vegetarian dishes compare with fish and meat.
For starters we had soups :red borsch and zur. We found them a bit too salty for our taste.
From the Xmas menu we ordered carp angel wings served with horseradish sauce- a really unusual fish dish in a delicious sauce, and roasted goose leg served with dumplings, cooked beetroots and cranberry sauce.
The waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about ingredients and the how sauces were made.
We enjoyed our Xmas lunch at this restaurant.

We decided to eat here on our last night in Warsaw. The staff was helpful and the rooms were nicely decorated, however the food was average. The portions were very small and over priced. My husband ordered the bigos in a bread bowl which was cold and the bread was old. We actually left hungary which is very unusual in Poland. The meal was definately overpriced for the amount of food we received. Will not go back on our ned trip to Poland.
