More than twenty years of tradition, Executive Chef Adam Komar and innovative approach to Polish cuisine guarantee an unforgettable culinary experience. The restaurant has been recommended by the most famous culinary guide in the world - the Michelin Guide - now for 10 years in a row. Restaurant interior was designed by renowned stage designer Boris Kudlička. It is filled with the original tropical plants (as a historical New Orangery building). The oldest palm tree is over 100 years old! Location in Lazienki Królewskie Park makes this place really unique in Warsaw.

“Great setting, mediocre food, getting worse over time”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Great place in a middle of royal garden, in an ancient orangerie transformed into restaurant - the location is great, both in summer and winter. Unfortunately, the food is frankly bad and getting worse : they used to have two separate menu (polish and international) and the great setting was compensating for more than average food; unfortunately, the setting didn't improve and the menu has been simplified "for your convenience", whatever that means. New menu is absolutely plain, nothing attractive and even rather simple dishes are tasteless (how can you spoil season vegetables or risotto). Very disappointing as the setting is really great...

“A Beautiful Restaurant in a Great Setting”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

During my three week stay in Warsaw in September 2012, I ate at Belvedere three times. The restaurant is located in the middle of Lazienki Park a short distance from the Hyatt Regency. On warm days the enclosed patio is opened up to the fresh air of the park and it is delightful. The menu offers a great variety of traditional Polish dishes. Whatever you order is served in an elegant manner and the flavors are divine. This is a real treat if you have Polish roots, as I do. But if you are not Polish, you will discover how grand the cuisine can be.

“A must when in Warsaw”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

A totally different experience. Prices are on a high end, but there are only a few places like this. Former King's summer estate, where you can walk the grounds at dusk, with a drink in your hand, while peacocks show their magnificent tails trying to inimidate you. Dinner is served in the old "hot house" with tropical trees surrounding your table (yes, in Eastern Europe). Or the huge tent attached to it, your choice. Enjoy aperitif on the patio - again, peacocks included. Very serene, food was delicious, although size of the portions is in line with the best restaurants out there, meaning small. You want leave very full, but you will be impressed. Especially by the ice cold Polish vodkas!
