Wabu: remember them? Originally opened on Krucza, the place rose to prominence for premium sushi the like of which Warsaw had not tasted before. Inexplicably, just as word was spreading about their brilliance, they closed. The city despaired. As it turns out, this was a temporary measure and now,... Read more

It is the conundrum that, eventually, all reviewers must face: how to handle a place that you enjoy but whose failings are such that they become impossible to ignore? In Skamiejka’s case, the elephant in the room is the food – it’s a massacre. Take the zharkoe: what should... Read more
Review: Dos Tacos
Who doesn’t like asking for something that’s ‘under the counter’. It’s an action that promises something illicit and hidden: forbidden fruit savored only by those with a taste for the taboo. In the case of Dos Tacos, doing so means enquiring about their range of ‘salsa clandestinas’: extra hot... Read more
Platter by Karol Okrasa
Airless and anodyne: that’s the reputation Warsaw’s hotel restaurants are unfairly lumped with. True, the balance tips towards sterile, stifling boxes serving food to the masses, yet likewise, it’s remiss to overlook those that are doing something special. Their number is few, but there’s a noisy minority that are... Read more

For me there’s nothing that says summer in Poland quite like weekends in Mazury. Not the tourist epicenters, but the eco-stay farmsteads and castle hotels. Reaching them alone is a joy in itself: down twisting forest roads and past glistening lakes. Pit stops and detours to little, lakeside fish... Read more
Review: Zmiana Klimatu
Today I am sitting on a boat with a good glass of red. A gorgeous woman is fussing over me and my lunch has just arrived. Life isn’t just great, it’s perfect. It’s not often I feel like Jack Nicholson, but this is such a time. Strangely, I haven’t... Read more

Warsaw has seen a growth in unique places or, at least, places that claim that they are. Too often they disappoint. Not on account of their overall quality, just the fact that, actually, they aren’t unique in the slightest – for instance, what’s special about dining on the ground... Read more
Octopus October!
Where Warsaw is concerned, no food has spread its tentacles in recent months as much as octopus. While once it was a relative rarity in Warsaw’s restaurants, today its commonplace, usually given big billing on the menu and plenty of promotion on Facebook. Despite its burgeoning profile, it remains... Read more
Restaurants: La Sirena
If I were to ever sit down and pen a tome charting Warsaw’s post-Communist culinary history (now there’s a good idea for someone), I’m certain a whole weighty chapter would be devoted to Tex Mex. At one stage it was massive. For Poles, these restaurants were a colorful glimpse... Read more

Grzybowska, at least the bit between Marszałkowska and Jana Pawła II, is acting increasingly schizophrenic. But despite being undecided as to whether it’s a business district or a residential zone, its split personality functions surprisingly well. Regardless of the financial towers and sleek properties that have filled the once... Read more
