“Beautiful setting, food is just ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

One of the most beautiful places in terms of location and decor. If you come in late spring or summer, you can sit on the patio and enjoy the wonderful greenery but spray yourself with mosquito repellent, the restaurant doesn't have any mosquito repelling candles or torches on the patio.
Servers were decent but we had to ask for water refills and my mom got a little attitude from one of them when she asked for extra spices/oil for her beef tartar.
They were nice enough to call us a cab though since we were finishing dinner when it was completely dark outside.

Neither the green salad with goat cheese nor the beef tenderloin prepared according to recipe of head chef to King Augustus were special or memorable dishes.
The food was just ok and if I would ever go back it would be for the beautiful setting.

“Returning to Warsaw first stop is Belvedere in Lazieki Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

I left Warsaw in 2003 after 20 years and returned for a fast conference in September 2011. Then and again at the end of May 2013, I spent hours at Belvedere catching up with a friend and being entertained by peacocks. In the splendid setting of Lazieki Park and the Belvedere Restaurant, we started with a glass of champagne, went on to horsd'oeuvres, then a main dish, and finished with dessert and coffee. This took more than five hours and was entirely delightful, wonderful food and drink accompanying the glorious setting and the race through everyone we know on three continents. Perfect way to spend a beautiful holiday!

“charming restaurant :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

During my first stay in Warsaw had a pleasure to dine in this restaurant. They have the most beautiful garden in Warsaw. And the food? Gorgeous!
Just the prices really high, but for sure worth visiting...

“Walk Through the Park to a Destination Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

After a morning walking tour of Warsaw which ended at Lazienki Park, our group of eight on a private tour chose to have lunch at the Belvedere Restaurant. My husband and I had dined there in 1995 but it was dark when we arrived, so we never saw the environs. Now a large white tent sits outside the restaurant with a pair of chandeliers to vie with the sunlight. Peacocks strolled on the lawn, children played on the terrace, Our lunch was so outstanding and stunning that a few of us took photos of the exceptional presentation. We were all in casual wear but the staff treated us like we were dressed formally. I suggested that the rest of the group look into the main restaurant which I remembered as a garden of Eden. They were impressed!

“Terrific setting, great meal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

I was in Warsaw on a business trip and luckily got to eat here twice! Once inside with a group, once outside amongst the peacocks and grounds. Both meals were very good. i had never tried sturgeon and was very happy that I did. Also had the rack of lamb which was cooked perfectly! Others enjoyed the beef, pork, etc. I had the seafood appetizer which had a nice medley of flavors. A must stop while in Warsaw.
