The food was super. I had perogies and sausage and both were super. The host was very friendly and attentive. The murals of Warsaw shipyard and city were awesome. Food was reasonably priced. Couldn't believe how clean everything was.

This restaurant is a couple of blocks from the beach area but it is right downtown and well worth visiting. The food is consistently outstanding - try the crepes, they are amazing! - and the host are friendly and welcoming. Comfortable seating and some great...photographs from Poland.More

This restaurant offers excellent food in a very nice atmosphere. The owner and our host, Walter was friendly, helpful and attentive. The food was amazing and beautifully prepared. We enjoyed some of the best pierogies, schnitzel and cabbage rolls that we have ever had. Definately...worth seeking out this hidden gem!More

Delicious meal in a clean, friendly restaurant. The Polish sausages, pierogies, sauerkraut, cabbage rolls & meat balls are amazing. Wild blueberry pierogies for dessert are an experience not to be missed. Interesting murals decorate the walls & the host/waiter is “awesome.” If we return to...Penticton, we’ll certainly eat here again.More

The food was homemade, scrumptious, and as good as any I’ve had in Poland. The pierogi dough was tender and delicious. We tried the sample package of 5 kinds of pierogi - my faves were the potato/dill and the beef. Quantities are generous. The decor...is lovely - very clean and modern with huge wall murals of Gdańsk and Warsaw. We had lots of laughs and a fun night. I will absolutely go back. Thank you to Wlodek and Ella.More

We were staying at the lakefront resort for one night driving through and I was tired of brew pub food on our trip. Found the Polish Bistro on here and glad I did. Easy 10 minute walk. Wonderful staff. Food was fantastic. Had 2 cabbage...rolls and 6 pierogis. I would eat here all the time if I lived in Penticton.More

We visited this restaurant with friends after doing a quick search on Tripadvisor. The outside appearance of the restaurant does not do the inside justice. It appears to be a small hole in the wall restaurant however when you step inside you can see it...is much more than that. It is clean and well appointed. Two of us had the schintzel with perogies and shared a polish sausage. The two in our party had cabbage rolls and perogies. The schnitzel was as good as any we have had in Poland and Vienna and the perogies would stand up to scrutiny by my Ukaranian mother in law. The cabbage rolls were equally as good! We finished our experience with the bueberry perogies and they were amazing. All in all an amazing dinner and one to be recommended!More
