As if the Cultural Zone in Katowice is not wonderful enough in its own right, one of the city's newest gastronomical ventures just adds to the zone's status. ISTO is a fine place where lovers of Polish food are in for a treat with a very modern take on traditional Silesian dishes. It's hard not to notice the UFO behind you as you enter, which also bounces off the glass and mirrors of the restaurant itself - a great architectural and interior touch, if we may say so ourselves. Inside is reminiscent of post-industrial chic (hey, this is Katowice) and the menu is outstandingly tasty, with food being ecologically and regionally sourced. The lunch menu, which changes often, is served Mon-Fri 12:00-16:00 and consists of 2 courses (49zł) or 3 (59zł). For those with time and desire, the 5 or 7 course tasting menus are stunning in appearance and taste, and in our opinion, fit in well with the transformation of Katowice itself - revitalised and refreshing. Highly recommended.
