Lokal Vegan Bistro
The interior looks a little like a New Age milk bar, the kind that’s left the design down to IKEA, but looking at the above-counter menu you soon realize there’s more to this place than meets the eye. While you can’t say the food is ‘meat imitation’ the schabowy... Read more

‘Kilian who?’ people asked when Wojciech Kilian was installed as head chef. But this immense talent has had the last laugh, wooing diners with an extraordinary menu that makes fine dining accessible to all bank accounts. Complementing Kilian’s cooking is a perfect design described by one Insider as a... Read more

ATTENTION: PERMANENTLY CLOSED It’s the wings that do it. Double fried they are and smothered in a plum BBQ sauce. Eating them is sticky business, but the taste is sensational: crisp, juicy and just about the most joyous thing you can eat without the use of a fork. They... Read more

Weles Cocktails

Features 3 April 2015 0

Both covert and clandestine, there’s something deliciously decadent about the mysterious Weles… Were it not for the decorative fire column signposting the entrance, you’d think the doorway marked a porter’s secret nook: yeah, the kind filled with broomsticks, buckets and dirty magazines. Instead, a swing of the door takes... Read more
Best of Warsaw: Traditional Polish
There’s a few restaurants that get back to the basics of Polish cooking, but none carry it off quite like Folk Gospoda… Be honest, sometimes all you want to do is slather lard on a big hunk of bread before surrounding yourself with little shots of ice cold vodka.... Read more
Best of Warsaw: Institution
The word ‘institution’ is over-used, to the point it’s become trivialized. But if there’s one restaurant in Warsaw worthy of such a term, then let that be the Belvedere. Now back in the mid-90s, when the Insider was in shorts and starting off in the world, the city was... Read more

Baltazar by Mondovino
I don’t like VIP rooms in restaurants – shuttered and segregated from the rest of the world they don’t make me feel important, they make me feel like a prisoner. So when I’m told we’ve got a meeting arranged in the VIP room of Baltazar my reaction is pretty... Read more

Reviews 27 February 2015 0

There’s something that creeps me out about the word ‘concept’. It’s slick, corporate and brings to mind greasy executives plotting a campaign for Honda. So when I hear Miłość described as a concept bar I flinch. Needlessly so, it turns out. While there are some people who would consider... Read more

Find two sides to GaliLu’s coin: first, as a fashion store (Mokotowska 28), trading upmarket labels from the likes of Oyuna and Enzo Firenze. Its second function is that of a perfumery (Mokotowska 26) specializing in scents, bath and body, skincare and hair products. Filled with rare find fragrances,... Read more
