The Fab Five: Back In Biz!
Talk about rotten luck – as unfortunate as the lockdown was for Warsaw’s more established hangouts, it came as even tougher news for the newbies yet to truly establish themselves. Now reopened, we present a fab five that were just gaining traction before you-know-what happened. Let the summer belong...

So good is Koneser Grill that, where once the Insider used our visits to this area as an excuse to drop into Bombaj Masala, nowadays that’s been flipped off in favor of the latest project from the Ferment Group. One of the most striking urban renewal schemes in recent...
Notes: Polana Smaków
Compact and woodsy, Polana Smaków has lost none of its copious magic since trading a no-man’s land location for city center Warsaw: from tiled stoves and jars filled with mysterious fermentations, everything about this place radiates warm, rural charm. We love our visits here, and that’s partly because no...
Notes: Restauracja Warszawska
Of the big openings that have occurred over the last few years, few have splashed down with as much impact as the Hotel Warszawa. And as an experience, few places can top it: the design alone is a rare work of beauty. Loaded with slick finishes and polished raw...

The lesser-known bit of Mokotowska is finally having its moment: first The Farm opened, then Foodie Rollins. And crikey, don’t we just love it. Tricked out with comic art doodles, dangling chains and midnight colors it’s a place born for casual meet-ups and messy lunches – aware of that,...

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...

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:...

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. Drinks-wise, kick-ass cocktails sell just as...

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...
