Besamim (the name means spices in Hebrew) is a restaurant, located in the modern interior of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews.
It is not required to purchase a ticket in order to enter the restaurant.
We offer you Jewish cuisine, based on recipes that we have taken from our home, we have created ourselves, we have learnt running a restaurant with Jewish cuisine for 12 years and those that are given to us by chefs and experts in Jewish cuisine from Poland and abroad.
In 2017 we received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. It honours select accommodations, attractions and restaurants that consistently demonstrate a commitment to hospitality excellence.
We specialise in Jewish cuisine, however, in our daily menu you can also find dishes from Polish and international cuisine. Ready to eat Kosher meals with a certificate can be ordered and eaten in the restaurant or taken away.
In the menu, you can find traditional dishes from Jewish cuisine like Jewish pickled herring, Jewish caviar, chicken noodle soup with matzo balls, kreplach (Jewish dumplings), vegetable kugel, Jewish style duck or chicken, Sephardic beef stew, jewish desserts and a wide range of Israeli wines.
Surrounding world-class architecture adds flavour to the restaurant. POLIN Museum building won the 2014 SARP (Association of Polish Architects) Award of the Year and the Award for the Best Architectural Object Built Using Public Funds under the Honorary Patronage of the President of the Republic of Poland.
In 2016 Museum won the title of the European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA 2016). More information about Museum and its prizes is available here.
Our customers may feel comfortable and safe – the museum’s building is air-conditioned, very well protected and well adapted for disabled people.
