Concierge.com's insider take:
As fancy as old-school Warsaw gets, Belvedere is set in a massive park in the city's embassy district. The restaurant sits in a graceful two-story hothouse, the former royal orangery, but the tropical plants and trees surrounding the tables create a feeling of intimacy in spite of the glass walls and ceiling. The international menu is largely Italian-influenced. The Polish menu, however, is an extravagant reincarnation of prewar national classics, done with a nod to the old Francophile aristocracy's taste for butter in all its forms. Beetroot soup, awash in dill and hard-boiled egg, is a smooth cold starter, while crayfish-filled "crêpes" are a delight—puff pastry filled with buttery seafood stuffing is enlivened by tart juniper berries. Surprisingly meaty beef tenderloin is given a light mushroom filling and accompanied by bacon-wrapped dates, an old royal recipe. Other Polish classics given the high-end treatment are roast duck on apples and a pork chop and white sausage combo on a bed of buckwheat. The wine list is cosmopolitan, with especially good Chilean selections. And don't miss the house aperitif, a smooth and sublime cocktail of Polish bison vodka and apple juice.
Open daily from 12 pm.
