Polka Restaurant is situated in the ancient walls of Warsaw Old Town tenement house - a place where both Polish and foreign guests can taste traditional Polish cuisine.

Polka Restaurant is a beautiful expression of Magda Gessler's original idea to promote diversity, colourfulness and tradition of the Polish taste. Her concept clearly shows that Polish cuisine is a refined blend of multicultural influences.

The dishes are served on wooden tables without tablecloths, in interiors reminiscent of the architecture of Renaissance tenement houses. Guests can enjoy their meals in one of the several dining rooms or on the beautiful, sunny patio.

Each and every guest visiting "Polka" will discover true Polish hospitality at its best.
