The location is great , as is the decor. However the food, though quite Polish, was ordinary. Bear in mind you don’t know how long it’s sat in it’s warming trays. What do they do with the ‘n’ tons that was left at the end...of the night when we were there! Price was ridiculously low, so I suppose that makes it better - main course 12.99 PLNMore

we wondered a visit after reading the very mixed reviews on this site. the restaurant is very nice. lovely decor and furniture clean and well presented. the food choice was plentiful. the staff dont speak good english but one of the ladies did her best..given...we dont speak any polish, she certainly did better than us. we found her to be very friendly and polite. the food was very tasty but luke warm at best. we had two main and 1 beer. i think it was 35zl (£7) on leaving the restaurant two of the staff were outside smoking. we thanked them and said goodbye. they completely ignored us. not great! I would recomend, if you fancy it. Go. its a experience and the food was very tasty and well cooked..perhaps choose a busy time when the food is being restocked and hot?More

Our group had lunch on June 26. The restaurant has a plentiful buffet. All food looked appetizing and hot. You are charged for just the dishes you select Wine beer and adult beverages are available. I had a very nice white wine. Highly recommend. I...suggest that you make reservations for a large group.More

I've just been to Oberza- it's recommended on Lonely Planet as the best traditional Polish restaurant in Torun. It's certainly not a restaurant- more school canteen style buffet. The problem is the staff don't seem to like tourists- I asked if the lady serving spoke...English to which she said no...except she quite clearly did speak English as when I asked her a question she could answer it very well in perfect English. If it were that they didn't speak it no problem, I'm in Poland after all, but this is not the case. Thus I don't know what I've just had for dinner- it looked like beef meatballs although it wasn't, it was a very sweet tasting meat, served with mashed potatoes, onions and some kind of gravy. Whilst I wasn't keen on the meat, the potatoes and gravy were excellent, and I can't really say the meat was bad given that I don't know what it is,let alone how it should taste! One thing going in Oberza's favour is their prices- for this concoction and a pint of Warka beer I paid 14,99PLN which is about £3.15 (the beer is about £1, the meal just over £2) so for those prices I can't grumble! I'm not sure I'd recommend this restaurant- I'd suggest trying somewhere which values your custom, and believe me there's plenty of places in Torun that do!More

I would argue if this place is restaurant, its buffet bar - for hungry, belly fillers and not very sophisticated clients.

I had one day visit to Torun and chose Restauracja Oberza to take lunch. My choice was based on Tripadvisor visitor references. To my regret I was not welcome in this self service restaurant: I went to buffet but found all dishes were covered with...lids so I could even see to make an order. 3 staff ladies were standing in front of me in a distance of 1 meter and were pretending they can't see me. After 2 or 3 minutes with unsuccessful attempts to see what are choice of dishes when none of three ladies offered help I understood the restaurant staff didn't think I'm an acceptable guest. So I had to leave.More

It's not a typical restaurant, more like bistro. Food is good, but not fantastic, just ok. Cheap, for two dinners and one soup + drinks costs about 8 EUR.

I would positively evaluate the things most attractive to me: - fast service, just take and carry - low price, even fixed 10PLN price of a plate - easy choice of food, everything is on view - flexibility in combining of main dish - any...drink, including local vodka or beer - polish country style interier - free WiFi - convenient location in old town Total score: 4 from 5.
