Found in Mokotów, we opened our restaurant three years ago to reflect our love of seafood and French cuisine. Our motto, ‘les saveurs de France’ (the ‘tastes of France’), captures our philosophy and our dedication to providing diners with nothing but the best of French cuisine: and in particular, it’s world famous seafood.
The misconception in Poland is that oysters and lobster cost immense sums of money. Yet this is a mistake, with a plate of six oysters amounting to as little 35zł in l’arc Varsovie. Lobster, meanwhile, is available from 99zł. Open seven days a week, our diners especially enjoy our 119zł ‘all you can eat’ menu on Saturday. Our seafood is always fresh and delivered ‘to order’ from France and the Netherlands using our own transport.
Our restaurant serves five, sometimes six types of oysters, and not always just straight from the sea – at times, we’ll also serve them baked with Bayonne ham. Our lobster is also prepared in a variety of ways, with our methods including serving it in cocktail sauce, lemon sauce, baked with béchamel, and – especially popular with gourmands – with sturgeon caviar.
The menu also features fish, mussels, meat dishes and soups, while for dessert you won’t want to miss our crème brulee or our white chocolate cheesecake. And if you’ve never tried lobster or oysters before, our staff are happy to tell you all you need to know about enjoying this fine food.
Of course, to maximize your enjoyment of the cuisine of France one must also explore its links with quality alcohol: at l’arc Varsovie we can boast a wonderful collection of French wine, and we’re also the only place in Warsaw that serves delicious New Zealand white wine such as Sliding Hill. We’re also proud of our collection of Armagnac (Castarede), Calvados (for instance, Chateau du Breuil) and cognac (e.g. Hennessy). We look forward to welcoming you…
