L'avis de Gault&Millau
While finding this place is not easy, booking a seat for dinner is harder still. Yes, a seat, not a table, because there’s only one and it’s shared by everyone, seating eighteen lucky guests only a few times a month. You really should do everything in your power to earn a place in this culinary paradise! Although the restaurant is located in a water bottling plant, its panoramic windows offer a view of fields and hills stretching to the horizon, reminiscent of landscapes found in Tuscany. Water & Wine has no permanent menu. Tuesdays are when the team of cooks led by Marek Flisiński usually decides on what will be served during Saturday dinner. By then, the chef and his crew already have a good idea about the best offerings of their garden (they even grow their own lemon grass!), apiary, neighbouring forest as well as trusted local suppliers. You can expect fish from Poniatowa, cheeses from the Celejowskie Hills, oils from Zabłocie, beef or fallow deer meat from Przytoczno, wasabi grown near Radom. Their menu is a map that guides food lovers through a feast whose every detail is polished to perfection. Guests can also expect assistance from the cooks who are eager to talk about their culinary creations while serving meals. Original dishes, backed by comprehensive knowledge of various culinary techniques, are a showcase of familiarity with the ingredients and unlimited imagination. Three base ingredients are used to create multi-layered experiences that combine spectacle and flavour, surprising you with the variety of textures and seductive aromas. PSST! All good things must come to an end. Luckily, the culinary gifts from the Water & Wine crew do a lot to ease the sadness of this parting.
