What’s for lunch this fine Wednesday? I’m craving the unbelievable snail burger I enjoyed on my most recent visit to Poland’s Warmian-Masurian region! The Eko Snails Garden of Krasin, Poland, one of the largest snail farms in the country, is also home to the Snails Bistro (Bistro Ślimaka)!
The eatery, with a dining area set up inside a wooden snail-shaped cottage provides an exciting escargot menu! Here you can sample unique plates like the snail meat hamburger, bacon wrapped snails, fish soups with snails meat, or classic Escargots à la Bourguignonne, the famous Burgundy-style dish with snails wrapped in shells and served with a garlic, butter and parsley paste (served here, of course, with Polish land snails).
All the dishes on the Snails Bistro menu are original recipes created by the owners of the farm and bistro and have been highly rated around the world in the culinary travel category. Snails have been part of Poland’s culinary tradition since the late 17th century and although their popularity faded for some time, in recent years they have been making a big comeback thanks to the work and passion of experts like Mariola Piłat Skalmowska and Grzegorz Skalmowski, owners of the Eko Snails Garden & Bistro!
During the summer the farm, bistro, and adjacent zoo provide the perfect setting for an exciting and delicious family excursion to the Warmian-Masurian countryside. I can’t wait to go back this year (with all of you!) to learn more about Poland's snail breeding and culinary traditions!

We are a family company with many years of culinary tradition, dating back to the 90s. We have been dealing with snails since 2003. Bio Patners Farm Snails Garden was the first in Poland to introduce snail farming using the BIO method - according to the guidelines of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development. We breed snails for gastronomy and obtain mucus and white eggs (caviar) for cosmetic purposes. Our snails from Pasłęk probably tried more than once in Italian or Spanish restaurants. On the Polish culinary market, we have created a collection of recipes for snail and white caviar, which were released in 2016 in the form of the book "Ślimaka Kulinarna Podróż", which was hailed as the best culinary item in the world! In 2017, we decided to use our many years of experience and on the wave of increasing interest in the snail, start selling the snail in the place of its production under the marketing name "Bistro Ślimaka". From the march we came to the Food Business Awards competition, being in the final in the category: The debut of the Gastronomic Concept of 2017. Everything we do, we do for you, that's why QUALITY and NATURE is the most important for us.
