Cafe Furkot

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "A Small Cafe with Red Walls and a Warm Atmosphere"

Cafe Furkot Photo, Warsaw, Poland
Quote:
Cafe Furkot is a bar/restaurant I have visited several times since I moved to Warsaw. It is becoming one of my favourite cafes mainly because of its location which is very close to my son's flat and not far from the cinema complex which I generally visit at weekends. The cafe is split into three sections; an inside area with cosy seating and a bar, a middle section that is enclosed with large wooden tables and an outside terrace that spreads out on to the pavement. At the moment because the weather is so wonderful it is good fun to sit at a table on the terrace so you can watch people rushing around on ul. Jana Pawla II. This is a famous boulevard named after Pope John Paul II and is a bus...Read More

Le Cedre

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "A Taste of the Lebanon in Downtown Warsaw"

Quote:
I want to take you to a restaurant that without any doubt is my favourite in the city of Warsaw. However, it does not serve Polish cuisine but Lebanese. This restaurant is located next door to the Praski Hotel (see my review). It is in down town Praga , a district of Warsaw that was run down but is now turning a little Bohemian. Le Cedre is just over the bridge from the Old Town, past the first set of traffic lights by the river on Solidarnosci Avenue. No 61 to be precise. You can catch a tram or a bus from the city centre or even walk from the Old Town. When you step into this restaurant you are immediately transported into the Middle East. The recently re-furbished decor is enchanting gi...Read More

Galeria Bali

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "An Opportunity to Dine with Buddha"

Quote:
On Friday evening my husband decided to be adventurous and booked a table for two at an Indonesian restaurant on ul. Jasna. Number 22 to be precise. It's a long time since I have eaten Indonesian food and wasn't really sure what to expect but he had been told that this cuisine at the Galeria Bali was authentic. As we walked down ul. Jasna I could see the front of the restaurant lit up with silver fairy lights and gold statuettes of Indonesian icons. This all looked bizarre and as we entered the interior I did wonder if the decor inside was going to be over the top. I felt myself smiling as it was like walking on to a set from the King and I and I expected Yul Brynner to come fr...Read More

Va Bene Ristorante

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "A Little Bit of Italy in the Polish Capital"

Quote:
The other day I was taken out for lunch by my husband to the affluent side of Warsaw. The restaurant he chose is called Va bene and is situated in Ursynow.Ursynow is what I would call a yuppie part of Warsaw and to reach this luxuriant suburb you need to take the Metro from the central station and get off at the Stoklosy stop which is 3 stops before the final stop, Kabaty, south of the city. The restaurant is situated on ul. Zamiany 4 which is a small street opposite the Metro station. Apparantly, Va Bene is part of a network of restaurants known for their great Italian specialities that are based on old recipes like Mama used to cook and only the best quality ingredients are ...Read More

Blue Cactus

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "The Restaurant with an Identity Crisis"

Quote:
The Blue Cactus Restaurant in Warsaw is a strange restaurant - it doesn't seem to stick to serving one cuisine. Even though it is advertised as a Tex Mex restaurant in most guide books, it has an identity crisis and changes its menu every two months. A couple of months ago the owner designed a menu with Chilean wines in mind. The chef recommended wines that would accentuate the flavours of the individual dishes on offer. Suddenly the menu changed to a Portuguese menu which is why I decided to give the restaurant a visit. Portuguese is my favourite food and having lived in the country, ate in every establishment in the Algarve and several restaurants in Lisbon and Porto I wanted...Read More
