    A lively Friday night at Ognisko. The restaurant was packed so the service was under a bit of strain. The food was super. Enjoyed the chilled Alsatian Pinot Noir. As ever great fun.

    Always an outstanding experience - my favourite London restaurant. I’m reluctant to talk about it too much because I want to continue to be able to get a table!

    Ognisko always gets it right. Some of the best staff in any restaurant. Efficient and super polite. The lighting is always perfect, low and candlelit. Crisp white linen on tables make for a classy evening. The food is consistently good and the portions are very generous. It’s a beautiful gem and please don’t ever change.

    Unusual menu with homely Polish traditional food combinations. Very helpful friendly welcoming staff. Hugely enjoyed quiet ambience of homely restaurant. Lovely to visit somewhere ‘different’ and ‘original’.
