Restaurants in Warsaw

Warsaw has many fine eateries, though it's generally advisable to avoid the tourist traps of the Old Town. Head instead to the centre, particularly around Nowy Swiat. Sushi and fusion are all the fashion, though local dishes are equally good. Game features heavily on local menus, as do dumplings and sausage, as served at central Chlopskie Jadlo. Most restaurants open at midday and stay open till the last customer leaves; 10% is considered standard for tipping.
