The Inn Under the Red Hog

Our super helpful reception staff in Warsaw, Polonia Palace Hotel with perfect concierge abilities, advised this interesting restaurant, which sounded perfect and so we did give it a chance to try.

The name of the restaurant comes from the original Inn, which was operating in the very same place until WW2. The “Red” comes from the communist leaders meeting in this Inn. In the restoration of the building, some letters of Rosa Luxemburg to Gustav Lubeck were found, in which they found many information about the building history, these meetings were mentioned. Today with nice decoration of old times you can feel the communist restaurant with flags and pictures and the climate of Lenin, Fidel Castro and Mao.

The restaurant also has a nice outside area which we preferred in the nice May weather of Poland.

In short, it is a nice place to go, sounds very touristy, but I can say it is not a tourist trap. Delicious food, warm and welcoming atmosphere and helpful and patient staff.
