“Nice restaurant,bad service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2010

We appreciate the fact that it was the 26th December but you were open for business and we were more than happy that you were and were looking forward to your advertised hospitality and excellent food. Unfortunately the lovely food was tarnished by the rather unpleasant, and to quote my Polish friends " grumpy & miserable " waitresses, who by all appearances would rather have been somewhere else all together. The food was good, mushroom soup was a special and we felt was a little old but all was generally good. We had planned to return for dinner x party of 4 next evening but we did not as we felt we could not look at those poor creatures, who were obviously forced against their will to work here and we felt it might spoil our appetites ;-)

“Awesome Polish Food!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2010

This place should be #1 for Polish food in Torun! It was a little difficult for us to find and then we had to ring a buzzer for someone to open the door to let us in but once we got in, it all got better. The soups we had were delicious and the grilled meats were excellent. The side salads were also good. The potatoes were cooked perfectly too. Definitely try this place. The atmosphere was very comfortable and cozy. The service was a little slow but we were there at a weird time for a late, late lunch or an early dinner so maybe they were busy with other things. The tasty food made up for everything else.
