Located in Warsaw’s center between two cultural landmarks, the University of Warsaw and the Polski Theater, Akademia Smaku emanates its own educational leanings sending happy guests informed on what excellent Polish cuisine is all about. The name which translates to “academy of flavors” is appropriate; this indeed is an outstanding place where in its impeccable interiors one is exposed to an impressive array of Polish flavors.
The menu truly delights with its high level of authenticity, quality, and freshness—virtually every item that arrives on one’s table is prepared after one places an order. Items such as the veal stuffed cabbage rolls on pumpkin mousse; roasted trout served with boiled potatoes, with freshly chopped fennel; traditional beef rolls served with roast buckwheat with raisins and pickled cucumber; the halibut served with broccoli puree and pickled cucumber sauce, are all excellent. With impeccable service and a friendly staff, one must make Akademia Smaku a wonderful part of one’s culinary curriculum!
