Tradition and good taste in the Old Town. Check Our New Year`s Eve menu in More info!
If you are in Warsaw and searching for a restaurant which is very traditional and a remnant from former times, Przy Zamku is the place for you. Ideally located in Castle Square (Plac Zamkowy) in the Old Town, the restaurant faces onto the impressive view of the Royal Castle.
The walls of Przy Zamku are decorated with wild boar, deer and pheasant heads in keeping with the hunting theme of the restaurant. Old-fashioned wooden furniture blends together with old paintings on the walls creating an atmosphere from a time long ago. The food in Przy Zamku is Polish with a menu which is quite varied. Despite the hunting décor, there are good vegetarian options alongside traditional Polish meat dishes which are prepared using recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation.
For cold starters, herring in sour cream and Polish sausages are typical Polish dishes. Hot starters include Hunter's Stew (bigos), dumplings with cheese and potato filling or pancakes with spinach and mushrooms. For those who prefer soup there is traditional old Polish white borsch or wild mushroom soup with lazanki noodles. Tuna and Greek salads are other starter choices.
For the main course there is roast duck served with apples, cranberries and potato dumplings, roast wild boar chausseur style served with potato dumplings and red cabbage or Polish style knuckle of pork served with dumplings. Fish-lovers can have the grilled salmon served with dill sauce, rice and salad or grilled trout served with salad, risotto and zucchini.
Deserts include ice cream, apple pie and traditional cheese cake. To accompany your meal, choose from the wine menu which includes wines from all over the world.
