FeaturesReviews 3 December 2019 0

There are those that claim Fest’s best months are in summer, and sure, their argument is convincing: hidden down twisting roads flanked by glinting waters and thick, tangled woodland, it’s an unexpected picture of pastoral bliss – every bit as satisfying as arriving to a rural refuge. But make... Read more
Review: Challenge ’32
First Impressions Seen as a shining glass block the color of midnight, the Renaissance Hotel has reinvented the airport stay through its experience-led philosophy and design-forward style. Expecting a cookie cutter feel? Then think again. Decked out to tune into Warsaw’s tradition of modernism and graphic design, the lobby... Read more
Review: Mr. Greek Souvlaki
With Warsaw’s ethnic options branching into increasingly diverse directions, there have been times when more familiar cuisines have often felt neglected.

Accessed via a striking glass-ceilinged courtyard, Lobo presents itself in two parts: the first, a dark, fern-colored dining room with a show-stealing tree installation; and the second, a more spacious area high on natural light and soft, blond wood.

Reviews 16 October 2019 0

Pizza gets the full Californian treatment in Przyjemność… The Place Tiny! Interior-wise, you’re looking at a raised communal table impossibly squashed between a counter on one side and limited seating on the other. It’s a squeeze alright, with all manner of jiggling and jostling needed before hunkering down and... Read more
