We don't have many good Polish cuisne restaurants in Toruń. This has a lot of potential but it fails due to poor robotic staff and ventilation. You will leave the restaurant stinking of cooking fat. Big shame.

It was nice to see a wide selection of wild game on the menu. Lunch menu was great as well; unique selections at very reasonable prices. Next time in town, will definitely be going back.
