Long-established restaurant in the Old City, serving (predominantly) traditional Polish-Jewish food. Generous portions, excellent value for money. Highly recommended if you enjoy this type of food or wish to try it. Helpful and friendly staff.

Considering that our group was on a tour of sites related to the Holocaust and the history of East European Jewry, it was logical that we experience the only Jewish restaurant in what was once a vibrant and large Jewish community of Lublin Poland. The location was excellent, as it was in the back of the square where there was... More

After a tough day as a tourists into some of the tragic past of Poland we needed an uplifting dining experience. We walked into a historic part of Lublin and were attracted to the wafting sounds of haunting yet joyful violin music. We stepped into another private world being shared with us. The music continued to make me smile or... More

The starter of hummus and pitta bread was really poor. No garlic in the hummus and the bread was severely underbaked. Next course of kreplach soup was passable but should have been served hot not lukewarm. Latkes were actually nicely cooked but ruined by cream which was plastered all over them, so much so that i refused to pay for... More

Mandragora has a mission. They want you to have a chance to immerse yourself for a brief while in the pre-WW2 Jewish Lublin. And everything (ok, almost everything - they occasionally play Gotan Project as ambience music) there is designed with that thought in mind. The interior is neatly decorated to resemble an interior of a rich, pre-war Jewish house.... More
