Main courses of steak au gratin and marinated pork land on the table. The steak is passable with a sharp knife and the supporting celery The wife had a stab at the chop, but again found the dressing it slightly too sweet. All in all the ambience and sophistication of the restaurant was good. But apart from the soup and the bespotted dolls, the food, whilst still edible, didn’t quite come up to expectations.
The food is served and its looking good. Cream of celery with horseradish. The horseradish was cunningly served in little white spheres that exploded with flavour as one bit joyfully into them. Great soup. My wife’s soup looks good, too. Cream of beetroot, but is actually rather too sweet for her palette.
Then on with the food. But first a brief interlude, well actually quite a long interlude. The worthy ethos of the restaurant is eco-friendliness. Great. Cool. But as we try to digest the relatively short menu, the waiter goes into his ‘where everything is grown’ and ‘how the food is prepared mode.’ Worthy but a little overlong. Food ordered and the place is looking good. Modern and clean with pots of herbs sprouting from numerous vantage points. The menu we saw was not ‘child’ friendly, but apparently they have chips and pizza tucked away somewhere!
So there we go, time to try a slightly different eatery from the norm. Olsztyn beckoned and Spizarnia Warminska opened its swish doors to us. These guys welcomed us and kept an eye out for us as we munched. A really nice touch and great for those with kids in tow.
