    Address: Mokotowska 48, Warszawa

    ​Ale Wino opened in 2013 and is located at 48 Mokotowska street, just one block away from the Down Town district in Warsaw. What is beautiful about it, is that you feel far away from the busy area; to come to Mokotowska street, you need to go through a gate, take an extra turn before entering the probably most charming bistro patio in Warsaw. From there you can find the entrance to Ale Wino. The food is simple and tasty, just as it should be at a top bistro like this. Cold and hot starters, main courses, a few desserts, homemade cold cuts, and some extraordinary homemade bread – just everyth...

    Address: Próżna 12, Warszawa

    ​Kieliszki na Próżnej means “Glasses on Próżna street”, and is a wine bar created by Beata Gawęda (Vini e Affini wine import) and her husband, Daniel Pawełek (owner of a few restaurants in Warsaw). The food menu is relatively short and based on Polish ingredients. ​You can have beef tartar (one of the best in Warsaw), Polish fish dishes or a selection of Polish cheeses. The food is on a high level in terms of product quality and technic. Small size dishes encourage you to taste different things.

    Address: Czerska 12, Warszawa

    Mielżyński na Czerskiej is the second wine bar of Robert Mielżyński in Warsaw, located in the Mokotów district. It's not a big place; only around 15 tables with a view over the open kitchen. The whole venue looks a bit like a warehouse, and the wines on the shelves take up around 30% of all space. There are a​ few wine guys working here, but to get details about the wine, you need to google it yourself, though correct serving temperature and decent service are provided. There is also a short food menu, where a piece of cheese would be my best recommendation.

  4. Phone: +48 22 636 87 09

    Address: Burakowska 5-7, Warszawa

    Mielżyński na Burakowskiej has a strong position among wine drinkers in Warsaw. It's one of the first true wine venues in the city, located in the Wola district of Warsaw, close to the famous Powązki cemetery. For 6-7 months a year, you can sit in the garden patio and totally forget you are in the big city. Inside there is a huge space for wine, organized like a warehouse. It matches the rest of the interior, with wooden tables and red brick walls. Always crowded, Mielżyński offers some snacks and simple dishes,​ but they are better known for the wine.
