There are many great restaurants in Warsaw and we have visited many of them. If you are new to Warsaw Local we regularly post Warsaw Restaurant Reviews and all the venues in this article we have personally visited. We have chosen a collection of venues that all have something interesting and unique about them.
Le Cedre 84
Le Cedre is a Lebanese restaurant in the center of Warsaw. Their food and venue is not only a fascinating and delicious journey to the tastes of Beirut but through many different levels of Arabic cuisine.
The venue is a great talking point. They have created an amazing atmosphere that really makes you feel you are far away from the Polish winter. Le Cedre can create a seating arrangement to meet your group size, so no matter if you’re a group of 5-15 they will ensure you are all comfortable.
One of the reasons we selected Le Cedre for this list is that they provide great sharing food options. They have a set menu called ‘Menu Beirut’ where you get to try a large selection of the whole menu from cold mezzah, warm mezzah and meat dishes. This is perfect for a team that want to discover something new.
We recently visited Le Cedre 84 and tried the Menu Beirut for ourselves. You can read our full Le Cedre 84 review with lots more pictures. The short version is this place is an amazing experience with amazing service and great value for money!

Oliva is another one of our favorite places that we personally visit whenever we get the opportunity. Oliva is a venue that prides themselves on providing an authentic Mediterranean cuisine. Their restaurant name comes from their passion for good oils. Oliva proudly say that good olive oil is like a good wine – it has many species differs depending on the country of origin and varieties of olives used to produce it. So, how the trick is to find the right wine to accompany your meal, so seasoned chefs pay attention to the taste and aroma of the oil used to cook food.
Each guest at Oliva will taste 2 grades of oil, so that you know their differences and appreciate the taste. Oliva also offer the opportunity to purchase licensed oil from known sources, mainly organic production of Crete, Spain and Portugal.
We have selected this venue for this list as it has a private seating area upstairs. This allows you to socialize and bond without disturbing anybody else.
That is not the only reason. The food is absolutely amazing. They provide a range of pasta dishes, meat dishes and much more. You can see more pictures of the inside and more pictures of the food in our full Restauracja Oliva review

25 – 50 People
This section is for the larger party that expects more. Just because a venue is large and has lots of seats does not mean that its kitchen can handle 50 dishes at once. All the venues in this part of the list we have visited and can confirm they have experience in dealing with such group sizes.
Now Waniliowa is outside of the city but this will benefit companies that are located near or around the Arkadia shopping center or surrounding areas.
Waniliowa specialize in Polish cuisine, so this is a venue we would really recommend if you’re an international company with many international employees. Waniliowa label themselves as a sophisticated, exciting venue with innovative cuisine. At Waniliowa, they care abut the smallest details and can guarantee that the dishes you are served are only healthy, regional and based upon top-quality ingredients.
This venue can support smaller groups of 5-15 people, but we have also witness them host large wedding after-parties. This definitely puts them in the category of venue that can handle a large group.
Waniliowa provide a wide range of high quality of Polish classics, but for a large group that can create custom dishes for your needs.

San Lorenzo is one of the best Italians we have ever visited. We have spoken with Italians living in Warsaw and they have said the same thing. The owners of San Lorenzo are from Italy, the kitchen staff speak Italian and they even have a completely dedicated Italian menu. One of the only restaurants in Warsaw that can claim this.
San Lorenzo presents itself as a very high-end venue, without the pretentious over pricing. The whole building is very large with many tables across two floors. It is for this reason we have selected San Lorenzo for this list. San Lorenzo has been home to made wedding parties so this showcases the efficiency of the kitchen.
It is not only the venue we love. The food is even better! With freshly made pasta, home made sauces and the freshest fish possible you are always great guaranteed dining experience. You can see pictures of the menu and food we were served when we visited: San Lorenzo Review

The above two venues are quite classy places, if you are looking for something more casual but still of high quality then Warung Jakarta will be perfect for your group. We discovered Warung Jakarta due to its interesting story of a Polish guy than traveled Indonesia, met with two amazing chefs, together they all moved back to Poland and opened their own restaurant called Warung Jakarta.
The venue is very large and has seating for maximum 80 people.
This causal atmosphere is great for company bonding. They provide a wide range of interesting and unique dishes and flavors that you might not have experienced before. They import all their spices from Indonesia, so you are always getting the real deal with Warung Jakarta.

Now this section is for the big timers who want to throw a party that no one will ever forget! This section is called ‘100+’ because all the venues on this section of the list can handle 300+ people. Time is running out for booking a whole venue, but all these venue will provide a ‘buy out’ service where you will get the everything you need such as the whole bar and the whole kitchen.
Hard Rock Cafe
The brand name speaks for itself. The Hard Rock Cafe has 191 Hard Rock locations in 59 countries, including 168 cafes, 23 hotels, and 11 casinos. They didn’t build a brand like this by providing poor service and bad quality food. You can expect nothing but the best from them. There venue in Warsaw can easily host 250+ people eating, a standing buffet service and an open bar if require. There is a large stage and the Hard Rock can arrange live music for you and your party.
The Hard Rock Cafe has one of the best locations in our list. Less than 100 meters away from the Palace of Culture and Science, you can find many tram, bus and metro stops within a very short walking distance. There is also a taxi rank outside the front door if your party goes on until late.
The Hard Rock Cafe have something for everybody. Their famous burgers are always a hit with a crowd, mountains of nachos, ribs in BBQ sauce and more. One thing that most people don’t know about the Hard Rock is that about 15 vegetation dishes are available. If ordering a large buffet they can customize to many different diet requirements.
