Fodor's Expert Review Gessler Karczma

Warsaw Polish

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

People flock here partly for the atmospheric setting: a warren of candlelit, bare-brick cellars and ground-floor rooms in one of the historic houses on the Rynek Starego Miasta (Old Town Square). The historical interiors are beautiful and help to set a romantic mood. The food can be pretty decent, for instance, duck in apples, an old Polish recipe, is quite tasty. The prices … well, the prices are less so, and the service is varied. On the whole, Gessler Karczma is a bit of a gamble given how much you have to pay for the privilege.
