A group of colleagues took me here for dinner one night during my short visit. What an experience. I had 'duck blood soup' followed by pikeperch with potatoes. Absolutely lovely. It reminded me a bit of the restaurant near Lodz where I went for my...More

If you want to try how polish people indulged themselves back in 17th century you need to go to Gesia Szyja. Recommend to try goose liver and goose and pheasant meat. Place looks really nice in the interior.

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's down a dark lane off the Main Street and up the stairs in a dimly lit building. But obviously locals know the place. We almost left thinking it was closed. Ordered dumpling soup and grilled oscypek and bacon. The latter was deliciously smoked. We...More

Out of the restaurants I visited in Torun, this was my least favorite. I may have just picked the wrong entree so I don't want to be too harsh on my review. We were treated to dinner here by a local business group and we...More
