Three new Michelin-starred restaurants in Poland

(25 June 2024) - The Michelin Guide has published its latest restaurant ratings for Poland. For the first time, restaurants in the Pomerania region are also included. It is located in north-east Poland and includes the three coastal cities of Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot. The region complements the existing selections in Warsaw, Krakow and Poznan. A total of 77 restaurants are included, three of which are newly rated with one star. Poland's budget gastronomy scene has also experienced a boost this year, with nine new Bib Gourmand restaurants more than doubling the number. Equally great news is that the selection now includes Poland's first restaurant with a green star.

"I am delighted that 2024 has brought so much wonderful news for our selection in Poland. This year's guide has been significantly expanded, reflecting the rapidly developing Polish gastronomic scene and the enormous talent of the country's chefs. I am particularly pleased that the famously anonymous inspectors have found so many fabulous restaurants in the beautiful Pomorskie region, which has been included in the selection for the first time this year," comments Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides. "Throughout Poland, inspectors were impressed by the vitality and passion in the country's restaurants, with a new wave of young chefs taking the lead. Finally, I am overjoyed to see that Poland now has its first restaurant with a green star. This is not only a victory for Poland, but also for a more sustainable future for our industry."

 

Two stars

Last year's big news was the awarding of two stars to Bottiglieria 1881, the first restaurant in Poland to receive this honour. The restaurant has confirmed it this year. Mature, refined and original, it remains Poland's best restaurant for the Michelin Guide.

One star

The most exciting news from this year's announcement is that there are three new one-star restaurants in Poland. These are spread across the country and showcase the breadth of the Polish gastronomic scene, most notably Arco by Paco Pérez, the first starred restaurant in Gdansk. It combines Polish ingredients with Spanish flavours in dishes that show both great ambition and the attention to detail required to achieve it. Chef Antonio Arcieri's cuisine is also characterised by originality, while the restaurant itself is an elegant space offering spectacular views of the Gdansk skyline.

In Warsaw, Rozbrat 20 is a new restaurant with one star. The restaurant is run by chef and owner Bartosz Szymczak and has impressed the inspectors with its development and maturity over the last few years. Every flavour combination is carefully selected and ingredients of the highest quality are used as the basis for truly delicious dishes.

The latest newly starred restaurant this year is Giewont. It is located in the village of Kościelisko, about 85 km south of Krakow, in a beautiful area with breathtaking views of the mountain after which the restaurant is named. Chef Przemek Sieradzki combines Polish and French produce and techniques to brilliant effect, delivering well-balanced dishes that display some bold flavours and excellent judgement.

There are now five one-star restaurants in Poland, with da Muga in Poznan and NUTA in Warsaw confirming their honours for another year.

Green star

With the Green Star, the Michelin Guide recognises restaurants that are leaders in sustainability. Their outstanding environmentally friendly commitment is a source of inspiration for both enthusiastic gourmets and the entire restaurant industry. This year, Eliksir in Gdansk became the first restaurant in Poland to receive a green star.

The Eliksir team implements many measures to reduce the restaurant's impact on the planet. Central to this is a philosophy of waste minimisation, which includes the recovery of cooking oil for use as fuel and the preservation of citrus peel for use in syrups and syrups. Local produce is also central to the Eliksir ethos, as is the use of renewable energy sources and a commitment to working with suppliers who share the restaurant's sustainable approach.

New Bib Gourmand restaurants

In addition to the new stars and the green star, nine new Bib Gourmands have been announced for Poland. The Bib Gourmand, named after Bibendum, the official name of the Michelin man, is an award for restaurants that offer excellent quality and value for money. This year's haul is great news for locals and tourists alike, as the total number of Bib Gourmands in the country has more than doubled.

Five of the new Bib Gourmands are located in the Pomorskie region, including 2 in Gdansk. Treinta y Tres is a Spanish restaurant through and through, offering delicious classic dishes and an extensive Spanish wine list. Hewelke pays homage to the city's famous brewer and astronomer, Johannes Hevelius; pan-Asian elements abound in the globally influenced cuisine.

There are also 2 new "Bibs" in nearby Sopot. The cuisine at Restaurant 1911 eschews fussiness and instead packs plenty of flavour into every bite. At the aptly named Vinissimo, wine plays a major role, while the kitchen conjures up clean, uncluttered dishes. The last Bib Gourmand in the Pomorskie region is Luneta & Lorneta Bistro Club, an elegant yet affordable restaurant in the village of Ciekocinko.

In the Polish capital Warsaw, there are two new Bib Gourmand restaurants: kontakt is a cool bistro on the outskirts of the city that offers Mediterranean dishes and an extensive wine list; for South American flavours, opt for Ceviche Bar, which serves the eponymous seafood dish alongside other fresh-tasting dishes.

There is also a new Bib Gourmand restaurant in Poznan: SPOT. This wine restaurant also specialises in home-smoked ingredients and offers a terrace with a view of a vineyard. Finally, in Krakow, Folga is known for its reasonably priced dishes inspired by a range of international cuisines.

All existing Bib Gourmand restaurants in Poland have their rating: MOLÁM in Krakow; Fromażeria and TU.REStAURANT in Poznan; and alewino, Kieliszki na Próżnej, Koneser Grill and Le Braci in Warsaw. This brings the total number of Bib Gourmands in Poland to 16.
