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: Ossolińskich 3, Warszawa
There is something magical about Warsaw’s Krakowskie Przedmieście, the main touristic track, with old buildings with monumental architecture, bars, hotels, cultural institutions. For very long, there was no fine dining place with a wine list worth mentioning here, but now there is! Epoka, located in the 19th-century neo-Renaissance-style palace, opened in 2019 and its interior has been designed by Boris Kudlička, world-famous designer of theatre and opera sets, events and architectural spaces. Epoka's menu is based on old Polish recipes, but with a modern interpretation and very detailed pr...

Address: Racławicka 99, Warszawa
Forty opened in 2019 as a second wine project of the owner of Ale Wino!, one of the most popular wine bars in Warsaw. Forty is located in Mokotów, an old district not far from the city centre. Forty means ”fortress” and the restaurant is located in an old 14th-century building. This is a big, spacious wine bar with a high ceiling and large windows. The food is simple but full of flavour – from small suppliers of organic products. There is also a bar in the middle, suggesting Forty puts some extra attention to cocktails. Forty is an old fortification, and you need to take a taxi to get here.

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.

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.

Address: Plac Konesera 1, Warszawa
Zoni is a quite new place in town: it opened in June 2018. It is a restaurant located in Praga Północ, an artistic district of Warsaw, similar to Neukölln in Berlin.
