This small, homely family-run Polish restaurant serves not only the local Polish community, but a growing band of locals, many often getting to know Polish food for the first time.
The extensive menu is heavily tilted towards substantial meaty dishes, as is the national cuisine, though the owners do make some effort to accommodate vegetarian options in the selection (eg pirogi pot cheese dumplings or stuffed pancake).
The restaurant has a breakfast/lunchtime café menu and an separate evening menu. During the day Barbakan also serves freshly-made, café-style snacks and food, including a range of hot and cold sandwiches or soup of the day with a roll.
Tip Don’t miss the homemade, freshly baked cakes and desserts.
