Review: Gourmet by Café de la Poste
The French Connection Inspired by the French concept of “pour vivre heureux, vivons caches” (“if you want to live happily, live hidden), Café de la Poste first opened in 2013 in the quaint back corner of Stary Bielany. Launched by Tatiana Fremond and her late husband, it stripped away...
A French Revelation!
Vibe La Buvette sits like a hidden gem nestled on a charming street that radiates off Stara Ochota’s Pl. Narutowicza. Tree-lined and looking like a cloned version of a picturesque arrondissement of Paris, it’s a pleasure to sit on the terrace, a feeling more akin to a cruise up...
Monsieur Leon
Found resting on the corner of a quiet residential street, Monsieur Leon is surely one of Mokotów’s best kept secrets. Here, simplicity is the name of the game, with a brief blackboard menu that involves cheese boards, salads and a hefty croque monsieur. With wine tipping down and conversation...

“I want people to learn,” says Arkadiusz Wilamowski, “what authentic French cuisine is all about.” As the only Pole to have ever worked under Alain Ducasse, he’s better placed than most to act as the guide. Though only opened last summer, his restaurant has sent an electric current through...

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...

A moody, open-plan space overlooking the busy market action of Hala Gwardii, Brasserie is place in which to soak in the atmosphere of this echoey hall. It’s given added impetus by artfully arranged seafood platters, meaty snails and stews that are heavy, robust and thick with goodness. Smak Brasserie...

Better than anyone could have imagined, one key to Hala Gwardii’s success has been the diversity of their tenant mix: find everything from Thai ice cream and Brazilian grilled meat to bio wines and oysters. But that list is nothing without a mention of raclette – for that Swiss...
Chłodna 15 by Wilamowski
Considered one of the top rising talents in the country, chef Arkadiusz Wilamowski spent seven years working in the three-star kitchens of Paris and London. Now back in Poland, his new restaurant has won rave reviews for its accurate replication of French fine dining… What were your early days...

Unrecognizable from its previous incarnation, the restaurant wing of what was, until recently, La Maison, has undergone a considerable refurbishment to lend it more gravitas. The big change, however, is the food: the daily changing menu has been purposefully kept limited to approximately two to three starters and mains,...
Review: Bez Tytułu
Background No street embodies ‘the spirit of now’ quite like Poznańska. The rash of bars that opened a few years back were the kick-starter, while the subsequent re-cobbling of the road and sensitive renovation of many of the buildings lent it that last big push. Up until now, however,...
