“Innovative, Delicious with Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Atelier Amaro balances modern and traditional aspects in both food and ambiance. The restaurant is situated in a small "cabin" at the edge of a park near the centre of town. They offer three prix fixe menus -- a 3 "moment", a 5 moment, and an 8 moment menu.

I am not sure if you could call the cuisine "Polish", but it was extremely innovative and cooked perfectly. The ingredients used were dynamic -- sunchoke, salsify, nettles, and even burnt grass -- but so was the presentation and the method of preparation. Although the staff warned us the portions were "dégusation" size (i.e., tasting portions), we found each dish to be perfectly sized. A 5-moment menu seemed perfect for me. There is also an extensive wine list -- although some of them appeared to be very over-priced.

The service was impeccable. When we arrived at the restaurant, it became apparent that there was a mixup with our reservation, and it had been lost. Although the restaurant was fully booked, they quickly took our coats, re-arranged the tables and put us at ease. It was classy, unintrusive, and efficient. I will definitely be back.

“It's simply not our taste”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

It's very fancy, modern and awarded small restaurant with oryginal, molecular, Polish tradition based cooking. That's really interesting place, but every time when we eat there, for all tasting menu (about 12 servings including amouse bouches) only 3 or 4 dishes are really tasty and joyfull for us. Very expensive, with good service, nice wines it's quaint experience.

“Culinary experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Fully deserved Michelin rating - this place is exquisite. Don't expect huge portions, this place is much more about tasting experience.

“Worth a Star”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

My wife and i celebrated a special occasion here and it was splendid. First of all, the menu was gripping. Exiting combinations that truly worked. Second, the food was prepared not just well, but with love. Thirdly, the service was outstanding. We showed an interest in the book about the restaurant and the chef came over to personally dedicate it and stayed for a nice conversation. This has been our most special dinner occasion in three years in Warsaw. I say, give Amaro Warsaw's first Star!
