Stolica

Set in one of Old Town’s smaller, lesser-known squares, Stolica charms with its pre-war, slightly formal ambiance: pristine white tablecloths and spotless mirrors combine with classic Warsaw tunes to generate a storybook atmosphere straight from the pages of Tuwim and Gombrowicz. Food-wise, you’re looking at typically local dishes such... Read more

Gosh. Co-owned by the Kasia Michalski Gallery to the flank, the restaurant feels like a natural extension: find contemporary art and photography set against raw brickwork while pendant bulbs cast a soft light down. Onto the important stuff, and Erwan Debono’s menu makes much of his native French background... Read more
Review: Zoni
The Chef Looks who’s back! Regarded as Poland’s most maverick chef, Aleksander Baron returns to the trenches having traded in the hipster era confines of Solec 44 for Zoni, the banner restaurant of the Koneser complex.

Red gingham tablecloths are just about the only decorative element in this plain Jane restaurant; aesthetics don’t figure highly, and that much is clear through an approach to plating presentation that’s best described as basic. But boy, they can cook – simple but delicious, the food here is Polish... Read more

From the makers of Bazar Kocha comes a new concept that casts the spotlight on Warsaw’s trend du jour: small plates. Enjoyed inside swank, retro-tinged interiors, the lively nature of Talerzyki is given an added boost by old school, classic cocktails inspired by the inter-war age. However, it’s the... Read more

There’s no shortage of places in Warsaw claiming to serve ‘food from the heart’, but not many do so with as the same integrity and passion as Bistro Z. Regarded as a pearl of Praga, the look is well-balance, chic but homely, while the cooking is firmly oriented around... Read more
Notes: Mała Polana Smaków
When Mała Polana Smaków first opened in 2015 it left our reviewer in a quandary: “where to begin,” he pondered, “with the good bits? The brilliant bits? Or just the best bits?” Two years on and these questions haven’t become any easier to answer. Full of wood, warmth and... Read more
