Whilst it's out-of-town it's worth the short trip out. Lovely, creative food, a pleasant atmosphere (albeit very quiet) and reasonable prices for the quality. Pleasant helpful staff. Highly recommend.

Situated in a residential part of Lublin, a meal here is totally worth the short cab ride! With a very gifted chef and team of outstanding cooks working in an open kitchen (the name in Polish), this stylish modern place offers a wide range of...excellent dishes that you would expect in any major world city! Great meat, good food, varied choice, exellently prepared, plus an excellent wine list. The service was top notch and most enjoyable, I hope you are lucky to have Patryk look after you - a very knowledgeable and friendly person.More

I considered giving it 3/5 given the variety of little problems, but that wouldn't be fair considering how many far worse restaurants score over 3 or even over 4. On my first visit i've ordered a short rib which was perfectly tender but didn't have...enough salt penetrated and i didn't find a strong demi glaze to be a good alternative since each bite gets less salty when you swallow the sauce while chewing the meat. It was covered with flowers which were hard and not that tasty. Salad had some raw rhubarb which was too tough for a salad in my opinion. Second visit existed of 3 courses A good steak tartare which was a bit overseasoned for my taste with salty ingredients making it hard to taste the meat but that might be just a matter of personal preference. between the courses i've noticed a sticker stuck to a piece of lime in my limonade resulting in it being removed from the bill. Second course was cappelletti filled with mushrooms served with sabayonne and freshly grated truffle. I found the sabayonne to be a bit overpowering with salt and sourness, but that didn't make it a bad dish just worse than you would expect from a dish made with good ingredients. after i've ordered some non sparkling water i've gotten some lightly sparkling water which was switched immediately. Dessert was a lavender panna cotta with honey and crunchy oats which is normally a part of a 3 course lunch but it cost me only 5 PLN, only detail i didn't like was that it had little/no sugar in it and you had to manage honey distribution throughout it manually. Staff was kind and responsive. they also let me in the second time after i asked a customer if she is single while i was leaving the first time.More

We've chosen it for Sunday dinner and w're pleasently surprised as atmosphere and service were on a high level with quite moderate prices. The menu selection is creative and various, each dish is a mix of traditional and modern, we've ordered duck and salmon from...main course and cheese plate. All three were good, though I've liked the cheeses most. The one disappointing thing is while lemonades were served with stainless straws (wow!), the sangria was with 2 plastic ones (in one glass).More
