The Belvedere, located in a beautiful spot in Warsaw's Royal £azienki Park, offers both Polish and international dishes. The restaurant's eclectic interiors are a combination of art nouveau and oriental styles. The orangery part of the premises boasts impressive specimens such as a120-year-old palm and a 30-year-old fig tree. This is a restaurant which aims for a quality feel and its guests include diplomats. The restaurant is far from the madding crowd and surrounded by trees. It also has a spacious parking lot.

The Polish menu is extensive and varied. For starters, you can order a plate of traditional Polish snacks (zl.39), comprising herring with baked potato, beef sirloin tatar, or raw meat with spices, venison paté with homemade pickles, and fried oscypek, or smoked sheep's milk cheese, served with cranberries. Among the salads you can order slices of marinated duck breast served with spicy buckwheat salad (zl.39). There are also homemade pierogi, or dumplings with cabbage and mushrooms or meat (zl.29). The venison paté baked in butter pastry with blueberry sauce (zl.36) is a good pick.

Once you have whetted your appetite, you can take a look at the main dishes. You can tickle your taste buds with a delicacy rarely served in restaurants, namely catfish roasted with boletus mushrooms and wild crayfish sauce, seasoned with dill (zl.62). There is also quail with goose liver stuffing with rhubarb and dried grape sauce (zl.52).

And now for the international dishes. You can enjoy something slightly more spicy, with fresh oysters served in six different styles (zl.82) or goat's cheese salad with grilled vegetables and 12-year-old balsamic vinegar (zl.39). As for soups, try the bouillabaisse, or French fish stew, with saffron cream and a piece of toast (zl.38).

You can then take on the grilled Argentinean steak topped with stilton cheese, plum sauce and a hint of wasabi (zl.87).

Visiting the Belvedere can be combined with a walk in the £azienki Park, which has a special ambiance in winter. The Christmas season is a perfect occasion for a meal at the restaurant.
