It is a small place, not much space and barely room for 1 waiter. But is is what the chsrm is about that place. It has a nice cozy and warm feeling to it and although there was just one waitress and the place was full, I got my food fast. The food is not expencive and I got a... More

First restaurant experience in Warsaw and by far the best. Atmosphere: The restaurant is located few steps away from the old town square. The room is small with about 8 small tables so it mostly caters for families, very small groups of 4-5 and couples expecting a quiet and enjoyable evening (away from the noisy groups of lads going on...

Great authentic polish food and massive portions! We ordered too much but managed to finish it all because it was too good! I had the duck from a recommendation on here.

Wow - was looking for an authentic Polish experience and this was it. I highly recommend the venison goulash with the beetroot - delicious! Plus it's the chefs speciality. Service was excellent. Lovely decor and surroundings. Relaxed atmosphere! Really happy with it!

Every time I'm in Warsaw I try to visit this cozy, intimate restaurant. The service has always been warm and friendly but they are most memorable for the best pierogi in Warsaw. Their other dishes are simple and straightforward and perfectly seasoned so that the natural flavors shine. I most recently had their breaded pork dish -- simple but delicious... More

Expensive for what it is. Service was poor, food was bland and average and tasteless. prices are higher than outside of the Old Town. Bit of a tourist trap - I'd avoid.

We wanted to experience traditional Polish food and we were not disappointed. Located in the Old Town, Portretowa offered an intimate atmosphere. There aren't many tables, and Polish decorations were all around the restaurant. The waitress was very friendly, fast service, and most importantly, you end up with a cheap bill! Good food, great service, great atmosphere.

A really warm welcome in a cosy little typical polish restaurant, marta is alone to take care of you but she does very well! Follow the chief's suggestion (for us it was goulash of venison: delicious marinated meat slowly cooked in its sauce) but don't hesitate to try other courses: the rabbit with dill sauce was excellent. If you feel... More
