“Impressive service, great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

This is very good place to take somebody you want to impress. The food is excellent, and includes polish specialities like steak tartar and famous sautéed mushrooms. The service was very impressive, could put to shame most restaurants in California. The check was quite high, but it was totally worth it. We wanted to dine there again couple days later, but could not got the table without reservation, even though it was Monday night! So make sure you make early reservation!

“Great Food and Ambiance in the Center of the Old Square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

December, cold and snowing we decided to have lunch in the City Center Square and picked U
Fukiera because of the good ratings. The dining areas were decorated in Christmas and just beautifully done and made the experience that much nicer. I had the salad with warm goat cheese which was a lot of food for a salad, my partner had the capresse salad which was quite nice. We both had the Perch with the leek reduction on warm salad that was perfectly cooked. My only complaint was the waiter seemed to be having an off day and was a bit cold and condescending to us but we overlooked it because of the rest of the lunch. I would go back again.

“I have been here many times and it never has let me down”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

Im an English guy who has a familiarity with Poland. I have visited Warsaw 6+ times and Magda Gesslers fukier has always been perfect.
Try the goulash it's divine and if you like fish they have a sturgeon dish with red caviar and white wine sauce that's wonderful!!
I have a recent review for another place only meters from here and it's less than complimentary...
Gessler has many restaurants in the locality but this place is my favourite and I believe she refers to it as her 'baby'
Fab!!!

“Certainly not the best!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Ate here in a large group when in Warsaw for a business trip.
The food was local Polish fare, and the portions were quite big.

Did not find a huge variety if you ate only fish/veg...but this is the norm in most Polish restaurants.

The food was not bad, but not great either.

For the price, I'm sure that there are many better options in Warsaw!

“Slow expensive and average food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Went here with a group of business colleagues. It cost more than twice as much as the previous night, the service was very slow and quite poor - we had to ask 3 times for a glass of orange juice. Food was really not cooked to the standard to justify the price I was really glad I did not order the venison which had a horrible half congealed sauce. But I can't even remember what I ate and it was only 7 days ago. Decor is impressive though.
