We've searched a place where we can heat up and drink some beer so i found Jan Olbracht Old-Town Brewery. Staff was polite there. First we have choosen beers tasting set in 125ml cups. Then after that we decided to take one from those samples...in 0,5l. We ate bread with lard and it was okMore

This place suffers from what I call "a touristic place disease". In short - such places loose its charm and dive into poorer quality since even if customers will not enjoy the restaurant, there are always new tourists coming in so.. quantity over quality. The...food was disappointing (we ordered ribs with plums + duck in oranges), prices are a reflection of the location not the food quality, we could taste it wasn't freshly prepared. Also - i didn't enjoy our waiter to ask us wether the food was good. It was not but I didn't want to raise that topic as we were with our friends over there. I was eating poor food and had to lie in front of everyone it was ok. Awful experience. Also the music was disturbing. We get that the staff is young and may prefer to work listening to american rock resembling Green Day. This however was not matching that place at all. Restaurant holds a name of a Polish king and its interior is decorated with medieval style items yet the music which filled the place stripped it of all its charm. Our experience was disappoining and we won't be coming back. The wheat beer was good though.More

Service was good, waiter was helpful but we feel the...price was too high for what we got...we paid 120pln. Not that greatMore

I wanted to love this place as I am generally a fan of gastronomic microbreweries. However, the service was poor (young waiter without any apparent training), beers were average (without a deep flavor), the food was served barely warm after we waited for a long...time. Prices were comparable to restaurants in America (overpriced for Poland). I suggest better training for the staff to start. Best of luck as I want the restaurant to succeed because the atmosphere inside the brewery is quite nice and I think it is a great concept.More

Visit in this place should be obligatory while visiting Torun. Great, locally brewed beer and tasty food; impresive interior. And of course nice service! :)

Good range of Polish dishes that can be washed down by excellent beers made on the premises. Best to sit outside as it can be a bit dark inside. Don't forget to try the gingerbread flavoured dark beer - it is excellent and unique, but...the wheat beer is also very good.More
