Restaurant Week

Restaurant Week is a major festival, held several times a year in Warsaw and other big cities. Participating restaurants offer guests special three-course menus at budget prices. Without making too big a dent in one’s wallet, one can sample the fare of many different restaurants and discover new, previously unvisited establishments. A delight for gourmets is a special edition of the festival devoted to fine-dining restaurants offering guests sophisticated cuisine, quality service and an elegant atmosphere. During that event, restaurants prepare for their guests a five-course sampling menu at a very attractive price. More
