Creating this TOP 10 not only did we focus on the aesthetic features of the outdoor gardens but also on their atmosphere, hospitality, and menu. These are the places where we will eagerly come back this summer.
Three Crosses Square 6
There is no doubt that this outdoor garden is a huge hit this season. You have proven this fact by visiting this place so willingly. We congratulate the owners of Wozownia who have discovered a real treasure in the very centre of the city – a backyard which we hardly knew about. There is a delicious grill, garden plants which you can also buy to decorate your own balcony. And what is more, there are perspectives. Right now a long bar is being built inside the building where we will soon be able to sit around till the early hours. If this is just a work-in-progress state we cannot wait for the final result.

Zakopiańska St 24
A truly exceptional place. We feel here like on agrotourism holidays. A beautiful house in Saska Kępa, a few tables in the garden and delicious, homemade meals. Cold soup and lemonade are worth trying. You can come with your parents and grandparents. The garden is perfectly organised. It is such a nice feeling to observe how the decoration (mirrors, plant pots) is changing week by week.

3. PLAC ZABAW
Tadeusza Kahla Square
There is a place where we simply want to spend time in summer. It is the Vistula River! Plac Zabaw has an interesting plant composition from the Grąbczewskis, magical lighting after dark, a few bars with drinks and food, beach chairs and tables, music from the scene or coming from the nearby BarKa, night Slow Markets. We couldn’t ask for more!

4. BIAŁA – ZJEDZ I WYPIJ
Francuska St 2
One of the most interesting buildings in Saska Kępa is especially capturing after dark when neons by Maurycy Gomulicki light the facade. You have a large space at your disposal. You can organize your own meeting place with friends among the trees, recline on beach chairs or sit at the tables, under the garlands with lamps. It feels like permanent vacations.

Racławicka St 7
Most of all it’s tasty here. And frankly speaking it is of paramount importance if we choose an outdoor garden where we want to relax. The hosts have created a perfect yard, in a non-pretentious Mokotów style, with an evening bar, music, sandbox, colourful vintage furniture. Perfect for adults, kids (and dogs as well). Family, holiday climate.

6. THE COOL CAT TR
Marszałkowska St 8
Very tasty indeed! We have been visiting this place quite often recently especially during lunch hours and in the evening. Meat-eaters will be satisfied, too. An outdoor garden seems to have created itself. Waterfall of greenery that tumbles over the tenement house where TR Warszawa resides is one of the advantages of this place.

Jakubowska St 16
This new bistro on Warsaw gastronomical scene has already won hearts of the Varsovians. No wonder. The hosts of this place, the founders of a magazine “USTA” – are known for their good taste. Eden is an essence of a climate of Saska Kępa – a beautiful, modernistic tenement house with art galleries, magical yard, a glasshouse with succulents where you can buy plants or make a reservation for a big table. An elegant option, ideal for a date.

Belwederska St 44a
It’s not a tiny outdoor garden. It is a real garden. And we respect that. One of the places in our TOP 10 with the best greenery. A perfect place for weddings, hen or birthday parties. Non-pretentious atmosphere. Kids have their own place to play, and dogs can feel free as well.

Ujazdowskie St 45
Maybe this yard is not the most beautiful place on earth but localization is perfect and an outdoor garden is very tasteful. One can see that someone had an idea for this place and designed it offering us not only a set of pallets, branded parasols or Henryk Sztaba’s chairs. We like to look at them rather than sit. Here we have upholstered furniture from SPATiF. A place for dances, lunches, and an evening drink.

10. RAJ W NIEBIE
Nowy Świat St 21 (in the backyard)
We are not enthusiasts of surroundings of this building – a dirty and dug up backyard of Nowy Świat. So we always head to Raj with closed eyes. However, the building itself is exceptional. In the evenings among palm trees and garlands with lamps, we feel very exotic and elegant as in royal orangeries. And this Hawaiian food! A perfect place for a date.
