Unusual place with delicious food.

The place is not that difficult to find, you just have to go through the gate and come to the end of the courtyard. The entrance is well marked. There is not a big choice of dishes, but I was lucky enough to have a vegan sweet potatoes curry for 15 PLN, it was delicious. To drink I took a compote for 2 PLN, so I paid 17 PLN for the whole thing, which is one of the cheapest food choices in Warsaw. There is a different menu every day and I was told that there is not always a vegan option available, sometimes only vegetarian. I was lucky and I'd like to come back to this unique place.

Pros: Homemade food, Great prices

Cons: Not always vegan options available

Unique place

Czerwony Rower is located deep inside the gate, which may make it difficult for some to find. However, when they succeed, they will see a spacious, bright and very cosy interior. The menu is different every day and has about six items. Vegetarian and vegan options are very clearly marked and most often these are 2-4 of them. The staff of the premise are socially excluded people - homeless, with disabilities, suffering from a mental crisis. Income from running a business is allocated to further help. As it sounds unbelievable, I have encountered similarly high quality service in two, maybe three places around the world. The staff is extremely nice and friendly. Portions and additions depend on customer preferences. Prices are probably the lowest I've seen in Warsaw. Soup costs about 4 PLN, and the second course about 10 PLN. Every day, an unlimited amount of drink is free (water with lemon, compote, juice, etc.). The quality of the dishes may not be comparable with the top places in Warsaw and rather resembles home cooking, but sometimes it exceeds the quality of twice as expensive places that call themselves restaurants. Czerwony Rower made an amazing impression on me in every aspect. It is only sad that there are meat options, but the growing number of vegetarian and vegan dishes gives hope that the place can continue to grow in this direction.

Pros: Unbelievably friendly staff, Great quality and quantity for the price, Place's mission

Cons: Meat options available
