Inspired by their owner’s travels to New York, Dubai, Berlin and Paris, Pera looks to present a mix of Mediterranean and Asian tastes courtesy of Nestor Grajewski – he’s cooked for Scorsese, Diaz and Di Caprio, now he’s cooking for you! From the same team behind the long-established Maho... Read more

Going Out 15 September 2018 0

Buoyed by the success of their Nowogrodzka venture, the team behind The Double D expand outwards towards Ochota with a new venture that follows much the same spirit as the original: a funky neo-industrial interior, experimental beers and a crowd that feels a little more mixed and diverse than...

Signposted by its own splash of Manga-style art adorning the exterior wall, this Commie era pavilion feels small and squashed and assembled on a budget. Who cares? No-one. An exciting departure from the norm – no sushi here – the menu is a selection of bitey Japanese street food... Read more

Otto Pompieri A revelationary new find with NYC-style pizza and an interior that’s retro Little Italy. With mood and food in perfect alignment, it’s a welcome addition to Warsaw’s pizza sector. Koreanka A brilliantly engaging courtyard hidey-hole – yet though the kimchi is spot-on, the bulgogi limp and largely... Read more

The tastes of Asia and the Orient are growing increasingly prominent in Warsaw, and not just the posh stuff, but the kind of food you’d look to search out in a back alley market on a backpacking jaunt. Representing Japan in all this is Sato Gotuje, a place that’s... Read more

Loco Mexicana

Going Out 17 April 2017 0

Though their Polonized interpretation of Mexican food is bewildering, and at times even hilarious, Loco do at least stock a few decent beers. Twelve taps here serve a revolving choice of craft beers, and while the options aren’t anything radical, it’s a welcome find when in the depths of... Read more

SHUK

Restaurants 6 January 2017 0

Located behind Hala Banacha in this gradually blooming district of Warsaw, SHUK’s certainly worth the tram ride if you’re not a native Ochotian. An offshoot of the acclaimed Mezze, highlights on our visit included a well-seasoned Arabic soup with lentils and spinach followed by a skillet of fried oyster... Read more

Not even the Google Street View car has been past Pivovar, but don’t see that as a reason to miss it yourself. This little treasure announces itself with a color scheme that’s darker than a witch’s cat; find the good cheer left to the customers, a happy lot buoyed... Read more
Pik’s Fish & Chips
You wait years for a fish and chip shop and then two come along at once. But most of the Brits are converging on E Rybę in the center, and there’s a reason for that: entered into a head-to-head and there’s one clear winner. It’s not Pik. Had it... Read more

Loco Mexicana

Restaurants 1 December 2015 0

Apparently new, but it doesn’t feel it. Everything feels a little second-hand, smudged and smeared. Even the menu is little more than a rumpled pile of papers. And there’s the colors: heavy purples, paintings of Mariachi men and bright colored throws. It’s outdated, banal and gives you a headache. It... Read more
