Barely a few miles from the dual carriageway S7, right at the tollgates of Kielce going from Warsaw, there stands our 5* Odyssey ClubHotel. The lively beating heart of the place is the Essence Restaurant – a club atmosphere it may appear at the first glance, but it truth, it’s a unique fusion of a club and the best cuisine of the Świętokrzyskie region.

Our cooks

As you may have heard, there came vital changes as to our culinary team in the autumn 2016/ The former chef, Tomasz Pawlusek, has left the team and been replaced by Michał Markowicz –a lecturer of the Kielce gastronomy school and a member of the Polish Chefs Association, for many years heading the kitchen of the Qubus Hotel. The new chef created a brand new team, consisting of the local cooks: Kamil Piwowarczyk, Bartłomiej Kondzioła, Krzysztof Wojtaś, Marcin Skoczylas, Szymon Pobocha, Daniel Papis, Bartłomiej Bukowski, Paweł Czerwiński.

How do they cook? Check it out yourself! You won’t regret it!
