Cuisine: European, Polish
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+

For a unique dining experience step inside the only Polish restaurant in New Zealand, or ‘that Polish place’ as the locals affectionately call it.

This relaxed bistro in Wellington’s leafy Plimmerton is the first place locals go when looking for a unique night out. Not only is the atmosphere always buzzing, they also recommend a matching vodka for every meal so you can have a truly authentic Polish experience.

The menu is comprised of only the best, freshest ingredients made with flair to satisfy even the most discerning taste buds.

Expect comforting plates such as feta and potato dumplings, fresh seafood and beef tenderloin to name just a few. If you only try one thing, make it ‘bigos and bread’, a slow-cooked stew that has become Poland’s national dish because it is so delicious.

Now for the drinks. There are several Kiwi wines and classic cocktails to choose from, but the real focus here is imported Polish, Russian, Czech, Dutch and Italian beers and the extensive vodka menu.

Just remember not to try and drink a Pole under the table, unless you happen to be Russian...

PS the Plimmerton train station is just around the corner if you want to really 'test' the vodka menu

First time using First Table and definitely first time at Topor, a great Polish restaurant - so perfect for a different kind of eating experience. And each course was offered with a vodka match - so pleased the wife drove back!!!

We were welcomed and served with a friendly manner. Our waiter was very helpful in describing the meals and making suggestions for our children who dined with us. The atmosphere was cosy with authentic polish decor. We were really happy to support our local restaurant for the first time, and to experience a different cuisine to the usual thai, indian, mexican etc.

We had a meal at Topor last night and highly recommend! It was nice to find a place out of the city that does high quality food. The serving sizes are very decent and good prices. The restaurant is small, but cosy and warm on a cold Wellington night and it wasn't too loud to hear ourselves think. Service was great, food exceptional. We will return for sure.

Second time visit to this Restaurant and again very impressed. The food is very flavour some and well presented. I enjoyed a Pork Crumbed Schnitzel main and an Apple Dumpling Desert and my partner Venison Noisettes and a Chocolate Bomb. Great also to have a choice of some different Beers including Czechoslovakian or Russian, I enjoyed a Dark Beer lower Alcohol (3.8%) Slightly sweeter than some Beers with a Chocolate background - well suited to meal.

I have been to Topor several times before, and it is always a great experience. The food is amazing, the service is fantastic. Having the first table meant we had the place to ourselves for the first half of the meal. I am dairy free and there were plenty of options for me. I will definitely be going to Topor again!

This lovely intimate restaurant is a hidden gem. We have been to Topor several times and the food and service never disappoints. Food is top class, fresh, well seasoned and always hot. The owners and their staff translate the food from Polish. Great Vodka matches so I recommend taking to train to and from Plimmerton. Try the shared platter as a starter, we have tried most food from the menu over the past few years.Taste food from a different culture you won't be disappointed

Hadn't been to Topor for about 4-5 years. It hasn't changed - still serving beautiful food. Our table of four really enjoyed the meals. Everyone loved their mains and desserts. Would definitely highly recommend and will make sure we go sooner than four years next time.

Have always wanted to eat Polish food again after visiting Krakow last year. When we saw that Topor was on First Table, we immediately booked. The food was just as delicious as I remember in Krakow, and the service was impeccable. Highly recommended. Thank you :)
