Lunch in Warsaw

I left the family frolicking in France and hopped on two planes, eventually touching down in Warsaw.

I flew in to shoot a little top secret project with a top secret company about a top secret new product.

I’m basically the James Bond of blogging.

In between shooting, my chap and I had all sorts of high hopes for Warsaw! We were going to see every museum, try all of the food available and generally make the most of this exciting new place.

Starting with lunch on our first day, at Flaming & Co.

Upon arriving I asked everyone for advice on where to eat.

Just lion around Warsaw! 🐾 Any tips (particularly food related) greatly appreciated (as always)! 🇵🇱

If you find yourself at a loose end in Warsaw, you can’t really go wrong with Flaming.

Lunch in Warsaw-29

Having stretched our legs it was time to head into the studio.

One thing lead to another and the hours sailed by. We didn’t get back to the hotel until midnight, so settled for room service. Call time the next day was 6am, and we didn’t get out until all the restaurants had closed!

My dreams of perogies and rose jam filled doughnuts went out of the window.

But I suppose it means I’ll just have to plan another Polish adventure, right?!

If you have any recommendations for my next trip please let me know and I’ll save them up for then.

  • Haha whoops, I guess thats normal though when you travel around so much without a rest it becomes overwhelming.. very curious what you were up to miss bond 😉 <3

  • I’ve never actually seen a red squirrel before, we do have a little grey one in our garden though! Warsaw looks lovely by the way!

  • The food looks amazing! Love your photos!

  • Oh man do I love Polish food! (my parents are Polish but we’ve been in Switzerland for 12 years)
    I have to say, one of my favorite places to eat Polish food is Zlota Kurka ( pierogis, pancakes with cheese, sour cream & sugar, potato pancakes – YUM! It’s super cheap because it used to be for students and many “poorer” people eat there, but it’s absolutely delicious.
    And, another fun place I can recommend is Czerwony Wieprz ( Awesome atmosphere, yummy food, definitely worth a try 🙂

  • Truffle pizza has got me drooling at my laptop! I love the vibe of the restaurant. Can’t wait to see what you shot in Warsaw.
    Hugs Adele xoxo

  • Those squirrels! So precious!

  • Lovely to see some red squirrels for a change! I love the decor at the restaurant you went to – chic yet laid back. I’m such a sucker for a white and blue theme.

    That first picture is badas*. I love the red coat, might just need one this winter!

  • I love your “lightness” of writing 🙂 Additionally you have this, natural, charming look 🙂 I don’t know how to describe it exactly but… you have it! And Warsaw itself? Stunning! Still don’t understand why so fancy food in country of “Pierogi”, but… ok:)

  • Kat

    Looks fabulous, and far better weather than when we went in January. Can never say no to a truffle pizza!

  • Busy Bella

    Please please please go to my home town of Torun. It is well known for it’s gingerbreads, the birthplace of Nicholas Copernicus, and also has a great pierogie restaurant I can recommend. As others have said, Gdansk and Krakow are also good choices. If you want a unique experience and find yourself needing some relaxation, go to Ciechocinek. Known for it’s spas which use the city’s production of salt water (you can also take a tour of the tężnie, which is what produces the salt water).

  • Amazing photos.. And The truffle pizza!

  • Caroline90

    Wow, amazing photos! I love Warsaw, I usually visit it every few months. Last time my friend took me to Akademia Restaurant and I was very impressed – amazing place with such a delicious food! Perfect for a lunch or romantic dinner;) I definitely recommend it for your next trip!

  • emilly

    It looks like you had so much fun:) I really enjoy my visits to Warsaw, the city is really nice and there are so many great places to go to. The place that I always choose for luch or dinner is Bubbles in the Old Town ( They serve delicious food as well as champagnes. It is a bar and restaurant in one place so it is perfect, whether you want to eat something tasty or have a great drink.

  • Agata Ekker

    Great post, looks like you had so much fun in Warsaw. I have been there few times and I loved every trip I took. The city is so interesting and diverse, that every time I have been able to discover some new places. My favourite discovery so far was a great bar in the city centre called Bubbles. I have found it actually by accident, when I was sightseeing and walking around the Old Town and we wanted to have a nice lunch. Bubbles Bar was very nice and cozy, and the food we had was so delicious! And they serve champagnes and sparkling wines, which I just love 🙂 You need to check them out:

  • Johnny Davis

    If you want some recommendation, I can for sure advise checking out the bar called Bubbles, that was already mentioned. I heard a lot of good opinions about it, so I decided to go there during my last trip and I was not disappointed. it was probably the best bar I have been to in Warsaw. They had great champagnes and amazing food. Their oysters were the best ones I have had in a long time!
