Very central location in Torun. Just a spit away from the town hall. We joined for lunch and we had delicious food. Loved the special interior with little tents around the tables. Be curious and check out ! It's wirth it.

We had lunch & dinner in manekin. The value of what you pay for your food is unrivalled, the portions are big enough and very very tasty. Sweet or salty they're delicious. And the tea with lemon is one of the best we had.

The food was lovely and plentiful and the staff were lovely. We went there on the Friday evening while visiting Torun for the speedway. Torun was packed and the restaurant was busy, but the food was served quickly and was delicious. Highly recommend!

This restaurant is located in the old town square and capacity is increased with a large tent like structure with heaters outside. We had a quick couple of drinks in there on a Friday night (the friendly staff were quite happy for us just to have just drinks) We felt we ought to eat there and so returned on Saturday... More

This is certainly different but very very good. Savoury & sweet pancakes plus other meals at all very good prices which makes it even better. Good atmosphere overlooking the Old Town square. Staff were very friendly & service good.

The food is really good here and the concept is quite nice: everything made with crepes (don't reccommend the carbonara, though.. if you are a fan of italian carbonara). The soup in the break is amazing, the raspberry lemonade is wonderful. The place is so good, that everyone goes there... every day, every hour. That's why the waiting line gets... More

its a great pleasure to come visit Manekin in Torun, where it all started I guess, but now also in other cities like Lodz, Gdansk, Warsaw.. Each time a new setting, very unusual design, and uncommon feel of delightful warmth. The idea is simple, but genius. Serve food in a quick, but elegant wrapped body that combines many yummy cuisines... More

If you think you have had great pancakes, try Manekins. Gorgeous, plentiful, inexpensive and varied menu for sweet and savoury. I can't tell you how ace this place is, if you don't go and try, it would be a huge mistake for your holiday.

We went here for breakfast and all ordered pancakes in various combinations (they have other things too, but you really go to this place for the pancakes!). The portions were huge - I fared best, just about finishing mine, but none of my family managed to eat up theirs. My wife had a delicious (albeit very sweet) milkshake, which she... More

We had Zurek in bread and mushroom cream in bread as well. Service was very fast, however, I cannot give a 4 or 5 as I feel the soups could have been much better. The bread is too thick, I have had this type of soups in many other places and the bread tends to be thinner and crunchier, where... More
