Tradition With a Scent of Spring

The U Fukiera restaurant in Warsaw's Old Town, known for cultivating old Polish culinary traditions, is celebrating its 18th anniversary. The menu and interiors allow you to experience something of the atmosphere of the kitchens of the landed gentry and nobles of times gone by and enjoy traditional Polish hospitality.

Now that spring has set in, restaurant owner Magda Gessler decided to give it a fresh new look. The walls have been adorned with flowers, and the place smells of fresh roses, mimosas and tulips. Chairs now have genuine Biedermeier handmade pillows. Guests can view a collection of 20th-century paintings on the authentic walls of the 400-year-old building.

Many prominent figures have dined at U Fukiera in its 18-year history, such as Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, Tony Blair, Yitzhak Rabin, and Jacques Chirac. Other famous guests have included film director Roman Polanski, French actress Catherine Deneuve, and Polish poet and Nobel prize winner Czesław Miłosz, who was a regular patron of the restaurant.
