It’s been a while since the Insider visited Bubbles, and on the strength of their showing on Friday afternoon you have to ask why.
Despite sounding like a dodgy Essex nightclub, it remains one of the Warsaw’s top casual eateries with a warm interior clad in upturned crates and dusty bottles, and a canopied terrace that’s ideal to enjoy the golden days of autumn: with Norman Foster’s Metropolitan building on one side, and Saski Park out in front, it’s an elegant scene that embodies modern Warsaw.
Food-wise, and find a paper sheet menu that’s high on little starter plates: for instance, a tomato tartar that sings with freshness.
For mains, slow-boiled beef arrives with a mustard sauce that’s a velvety wave of high impact deliciousness.
And dessert, that’s homemade ice cream: nothing dazzling, but a solid finish to a great meal.
Finally, the prices. Sure, you can spend serious money here (some of the champagnes are exclusive to Poland and come with terrifying price tags), but there are more moderate choices as well, with cocktails starting out at PLN 19, and mains that kick-off at under PLN 30.
More than a good deal, it’s a giveaway considering the neighboring competition. This might have been the Insider’s first visit of the year to Bubbles, but it shan’t be our last.
