With our second visit to Sphinx, I was disliked with my meal and tell the waiter about it, and he immediately offer me a new meal, and excuses for there misstakes. I accept and the new meal was very good as it had been with our first visit too..

The drawing card for this restaurant is the menus in English. That's where it ends. I had the steak and pasta in mushroom sauce. Pasta and sauce good - steak was tough - like the cow had been run over by a truck a few times. My husband had some oriental themed dish and ate 2 bites. Service - sarcastic... More

For a non Polish speaker, first time in a non English speaking country, this restaurant was a draw card for me, because they had pictures of the food and the menu was in English!. Two pluses! Whilst the food looked terrific in the photos, the presentation was not that marvellous, and the Pepsi was served warm...no ice...the waiters were busy... More

Torun's beautiful main square is no *** gourmet destination so it was by default that we ended up in this well-frequented restaurant. Unlike most establishments in the square, there was no TV blaring speedway and it had stunning views of the town hall and statue of Copernicus. Beer was fine, Chilean sauvignon blanc was tepid but drinkable. My wife said... More

Food was great. Service was slow but the fact that we arrived at the start of one of the Euro 2012 games with 20 others did not help !

I dont really have the time or energy to write a proper review. I would avoid here from my experience as the food was not up to scratch. Staff were friendly all the same and could not fault them. It is all about the food tho staffing is just a bonus.
