Well let’s ask this – just who on earth doesn’t enjoy eating in a palace. Seemingly designed to make visitors go ‘woah’, Baczewskich is nothing if not a fully-fledged exercise in unrestrained fancy: a composition of plush fabrics, gleaming glassware, framed certificates and contemporary extravagance, the high impact visuals...

Run, you suspect, as a form of self-expression, Argentinean chef Martin Gimenez Castro has injected his passion and personality into Ceviche Bar, a venue whose name is something of a misnomer – sure there’s ceviche (and magnificent it is), but there’s also so much more. Cooking beneath a mural... Read more

If there’s one thing we just love about researching our Best of Warsaw issue (coming soon, don’t you worry!), it’s the chance it affords us to visit old, established favorites such as Ale Wino. Their story, while not exactly rags to riches, does have a feel-good ring to it:... Read more

Set in a 200-year-old carriage house within a secretive courtyard, Wozownia started life looking raw and ramshackle – in parts, it still does, but that’s not to say improvements haven’t been made, not least to a Lynch-esque winter garden that feels brilliantly dream-like.

Going back a few years you’d have found Naam consistently flagged as the best Thai in town. The crown was lost with the departure of their original chef, but that hasn’t stopped this remaining a staunch neighborhood mainstay. Positioned on the border of Saska K and Gocław, there’s no... Read more

With hotels increasingly marketing themselves as ‘lifestyle-led experiences’, it makes sense that one of the biggest openings of 2019, Moxy, has made its design-forward bar its focal point and heart. Uber trendy, it’s a hotel bar alright, it’s just unlike anything you’ve seen before. Stacked high with wacky odds... Read more

Haggard old veteran that I am, there’s a few things I miss about the Warsaw of old. Rumors, for one. They used to spread like wildfire, and they’d reach their peak when the word turned to curry: at least, they did if you were the holder of a passport... Read more

De-formalizing the dining experience whilst placing wine at the core of their offer, few restaurant groups can claim to be as influential as Ferment, a group widely credited with shepherding the city away from stiff fine dining haunts and into surroundings more casual.

Ravishing as Kraków is, doesn’t it make a pleasant change to escape the pissed-up stags and earnest novelists in-the-making. And this, you can easily do for just fifteen kilometers north stands Zamek Korzkiew. Forming part of the Eagle’s Nest trail of medieval castles, this 14th century fortification caps a... Read more

Now firmly enshrined in local lore, Bibenda are pretty much the first name out of the hat when the subject turns to casual dining – others do it well, but few do it better. The menu declares Bibenda to be ‘a celebration of food, drink and togetherness’, and that’s... Read more
