So we originally intended to go to Stary Dom but they were full and recommended that we go here. 100% worth it. The food was delicious! The atmosphere was lovely and the staff were friendly. I highly recommend the Ukranian Borsch (cost about 25 zl) or the Nalesniki (cost about 35 zl). Price was decent.

This is a very lovelly decorated restaurant with fresh quality food. The restaurant is quite small, so advance booking is recommended. Friendly service, quite a large wine list and good (local) beers available. Not so nice is that a service fee of 10 % is automacilly added to the bill. People will be happy to add a service fee by...

Private apartment and grocery store magically change for unique, romantic and lovely restaurant. Small, but comfortable, delicious food, but for reasonable prices and great service. One of the restaurants you have to go.

2 week ago I organized farewell dinner for dozen my colleagues from work. I must admit everything was perfect! Especially I recommend salmon tartare for a starter and codfish for the main course. Inside the restaurant you'll find small but very cozy rooms. I was surprised, that even in the middle of the week most places were occupied, that also... More

This place is very cosy with a nice atmosphere. Pretty small, so make sure you have a reservation. Excellent food, what I had was on the heavy side, but I knew that when I ordered. Especially the duck was excellent. However, I did not have enough space for dessert left, so I have to come back and taste the lovely... More

If you are in or near the Mokotow district, Zielnik ("Herbarium") is the place for coffee, drink or meal, regardless of the weather. If it is cold or raining, dine indoors in a very cosy atmosphere and enjoy the lovely decor on a botanical theme. On warm days, Zielnik also opens a very attractive outdoor area just across the street,... More

I really love Zielnik cuisine - always delicious, sophisticated and served in a tasty way. They modify their menu according to the season, and I ate there very good veal, tasty shrimps and many other choices. I go there a few times a year and never regret. It is perfect place for business dinner unless you are in a big... More

Charming little restaurant with the possibility to seat also in the park across the street in the summer months. Charming interior, interesting menu mostly Polish. Good service, a bit slow, could be better considering that the famous Magda Gessler is behind this. Prices are not cheap but Magda has a price, and it's certainly worth it.

Thank Rana R

Zielnik Restaurant is a unique place of quiet and domestic bliss. Its 30 tables are set in four discrete dining rooms decorated with 19th Century prints and surrounded by fragrant fruits and flowers. It is an ideal location for "tete a tete" meetings set in a café atmosphere. The cuisine bears Magda Gessler's imprimatur. Lighting is provided by hundreds of flickering candles whilst the air is vibrant with the aroma of cinnamon and freshly roasted coffee. The gardens located in the Park Dreszera provide a further 40 tables set amongst birdsong and greenery.
