The Insider Food Diary
It’s been a busy few weeks for Warsaw, ergo it’s been a busy few weeks for the Insider: new venues, second looks, old timers and return visits – we’ve packed in the lot the last few weeks, with the highlights being thus… Warszawski Sznyt: wow. You feel so close...
The Bell

The Bell

Restaurants 11 June 2017 0

Cascading with greenery and plant life, The Bell’s back garden is one of Warsaw’s best kept summer secrets: a verdant sanctuary in which time seems to pause. Just right for Saska Kepa, the sense of casual chic extends to an intelligent menu that’s been designed by the gifted Jan...
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,...
Review: Rozbrat 20
There was a time when Powiśle was the volcanic center of what history will remember as Warsaw’s dalliance with hipsterdom. Now the area has moved forward, gentrified and matured. If once the district was (in)famous for grotto-like shops and bizarre street fashions, today its a polished place of four-wheel...
The Zoopa

The Zoopa

Restaurants 30 January 2017 1

After a frosty walk through Park Praski this is exactly the kind of place you’d hope to find. Strong white color schemes are offset by copious shrubbery, contemporary seating and plenty of natural light, giving Zoopa a look that feels fresh and upbeat. Adding to that is a smart...

There’s a beauty to this restaurant that causes guests to stop a moment and soak it all in. Classy yet discreet, the interiors set art and photography against rehabilitated brickwork while pendant bulbs cast a soft light downwards. The classic cooking has French and Polish accents and has so...
The One @ Francuska 3
After a sensational summer in which The One’s garden became a seasonal star, this restaurant has settled back into mediocrity. The food is well presented but, in truth, little more than an average assembly of Polish dishes with a contemporary spin. The stark looking interiors, meanwhile, feel better suited for...
Sketch w Teatrze Wielkim
Hitherto better known as an upscale tap bar aimed at glam stylists and models with sleeve tattoos, Sketch have shown they’re getting serious about the kitchen aspect with the appointment of Sebastian Olma as chef. Known for his sterling work at Kafe Zielony Niedzwiedź, not to mention winning the...
Północ Poludnie

Północ Poludnie

Restaurants 30 September 2016 0

Besides the food being colorful and inventive there is a restaurant concept that works here. It has a visible kitchen, which at times is a little noisy, and beautifully designed interior that thrusts the bar to attention. The food has been left in the hands of Piotr Ceranowicz, a chef...
Platter by Karol Okrasa
Celebrity chef Karol Okrasa is the inspiration and figurehead behind the menu, but it’s his foot soldiers that deserve real credit. When Okrasa isn’t present, they’re the ones who keep the place ticking over, turning out fine dining moments that go way beyond memorable. Although the hotel environment naturally attracts...
