Looking for an authentic Polish meal for your first date with that special someone? Here are ten first date restaurants serving the very best in Polish cuisine

226 Beverley Road, Hull, HU5 1AH

When it comes to first date restaurants, a relaxed venue is essential. Luckily, Kuchnia has just the right atmosphere to get the conversation going. They also have an impressive range of dishes – the placek and pierogi are particularly tasty.

My Place

57 Broadway, Cardiff, CF24 1QE

My Place boasts a unique menu. Try the rye soup with smoked sausage and Silesian potato dumplings. Also with most of the main courses costing around £8, it’s a really affordable restaurant. Perfect for a first date!

The Karczma

Polish Millennium House, Bordesley Street, Birmingham, B5 5PH

Despite being not much to look at from the outside, Birmingham’s The Karczma transforms once you’re inside. With a thatched straw ceiling and murals adorning the walls, you could be forgiven for thinking you’d wandered into a cosy mountain cottage. The food is just as impressive with the delicately-made pierogi a customer favourite.


58 Walmgate, York, YO1 9TL

This characterful café is well worth trying to squeeze into on the busiest of days. The food is expertly cooked, whether you opt for a main meal or just want coffee and cake. It’s also worth trying one of their selection of Polish beers.

At Gdanska, the food is not only delicious but is also presented beautifully. The selection of stews, goulashes and Schnitzel will not disappoint. Don’t forget to try one of the flavoured vodkas to finish your meal.
