Barbakan is a special building in Poland that protects the gates to the city. Many older cities in Europe were surrounded by thick walls providing protection from enemy invasions. All traffic had to pass through a gate that was fortified by a round-looking building, called the Barbakan. In 1987 two individuals had a common dream of opening a restaurant that would offer the best Polish food this side of the ocean. These two owners were from Krakow and Warsaw and the one thing these cities had in common was a Barbakan. All Barbakan dishes are prepared according to traditional recipes of a typical Polish household. The food is always fresh, delicious, authentic, and affordable.
