The daily’s Ben Aitken wrote: "At the end of my most recent visit to Concordia Taste, I was so smitten that I was tempted to 'do the Poznań' –turn my back on the kitchen and bounce up and down, which is what the local football fans famously do when their team is playing a blinder.

"Here’s why: the marinated walnuts. And the smoky potato soup. And the quince ice-cream with elderflower vinegar (trust me). And the truffle mayo with toadstool crisps. And the blueberry mustard. And the parsnip flan. And the truffle sauce that pimped up the venison. I’m frothing in remembrance! A bright and airy space with a Scandi-chic vibe make for a very memorable setup.

"I’ve heard on the grapevine that Poznań has aspirations of becoming the food capital of Poland. It’s going the right way about it."

Concordia Taste is located in a former printing house dating from 1910.

It is the only Polish restaurant in The Guardian's list, which is dominated by those in Italy, France, Spain and Portugal.
