What others say


“The Polish “stodge” is “not about to win any prizes”, but this “comfy” Shepherd’s Bush venue provides a top “cheap and cheerful” night out, thanks to its “hospitable” staff, “jollly” atmosphere, and “excellent-value set menu”.”


“…Kaz and Eva Michalik’s Polish restaurant, Patio, continues to be one of the London’s most extraordinary eateries… The welcome is genuine, the atmosphere unique; old-fashioned, stylish, a lift for jaded urban diners. Chopin and thath grumpy old George Sand would have felt deliciously at home here.”


“It’s like a 1935 middle-class Polish drawing-room. The owners Eva and Kaz are very welcoming, and it’s great to find such an unpretentiuos place. There are even Gypsy fiddlers playing there sometimes, which complements the mood.”


“Good food and fantastic service, this family run business of 23 years was established in 1986. Menus are changed daily using fresh seasonal ingredients, and private dining is available on the request.”


“What a lovely restaurant. Cozy atmosphere, friendly prompt service & good wholesome Polish traditional food. Really nice start to our evening. Will definitely be back.”



“A homely family run Polish restaurant that’s great to visit after a day of shopping at Westfield, when all you want to do is sit back and stuff your face with freshly made pierogis. The set menu is excellent value for money, and you get a free shot of vodka on arrival – there’s a whole list of flavoured vodkas to choose from if you’re feeling daring. Lots of families in the restaurant, you get the feeling it’s something of a neighbourhood institution.”



“Amazing food (the duck!), friendly service, cozy atmosphere, cheaper than expected. The £15.50 menu is more food than I could handle.”
