Rage against the latrine? Not anymore. While Warsaw’s toilets used to be bog standard, and in some cases downright crap, the city has come a long way when it comes to its facilities. In no order whatsoever, we present you the pick of the bunch and the top of... Read more
Duchnicka Food & Wine
You’ve got to ask, was there a strategy involved when picking this location, or was it decided by throwing a dart at a map? Honestly, I’d bet on the latter. But I like this seemingly indiscriminate positioning on the distant borderlands of Żoliborz. It shows a confidence to say,... Read more

While Frenchman Michel Moran has been an impressive force on Warsaw’s dining scene for a number of years, the cuisine of his homeland has never really broken big in this country – puzzling when considering the cultural and historic ties between the two nations. At least, that was the... Read more
Delirium Warszawa
Until Cuda Na Kiju opened last year – May was it? – the denizens of Warsaw lived in serious deprivation. Sure, there were bars that sold good beer, but they weren’t for you and me: they were for hipsters and half-wits. Cuda changed that, presenting a range of craft... Read more

Five years back Polish off-licenses were a depressing experience. In fact, most still are. No matter what clever ad campaigns the bods at Warka and Żywiec come up with, there’s no hiding the fact that the final result tastes like a tramp’s pee. So to find most bottle shops... Read more
Kafe Zielony Niedzwiedź
Don’t be fooled by the city center postcode, Zielony Niedzwiedź is a destination restaurant that feels isolated from the world – no rolling up to the door via taxi here, instead diners sneak down a park pathway before arriving outside a modern block of brick and glass. Set amid the greenery,... Read more
Rise of the Middle East
The indefatigable and excellent Le Cedre chain aside (well, there’s two of them), Warsaw’s relationship with the cuisine of the Middle East has been calamitous. In fact, I’d call it catastrophic. Such is the crisis, a whole generation of locals have grown up thinking the Middle East survives on... Read more
