We enjoyed a very nice meal at Kardamon with excellent service, beautiful presentation of the meal but unfortunately, the portions were on the smallish side. We enjoyed the vegetable pasta with Parpadelle and the veal dolmades. Food was very tasty. The restaurant is quite small...so reservations are advised.More

Traditional if not a bit old-fashioned with food to match. The duck was a tad dry but acceptable. Atmosphere a little subdued and flat. Waiter attentive but a bit odd.

Hidden in the basement in a very elegant street full of noble houses and palaces, this gem is my favorite in Lublin. Yes, the waiters and waitresses make mistakes, yes, I got Tartar instead of duck and the boar shoulder was not available, but the...charme of the staff made up for it and many times I have had a wonderful time there with my friends and clients. Beautifully decorated, nice layout of the tables, cosy private corners and also a fair winelist will bring me back again and again. The best restaurant in Lublin!More

So pleased to have found a true gem when surrounded by bland, tourist fare. This was genuinely the best restaurant meal that I have eaten in some time. The food has such attention to detail with wonderful explosions of taste and texture with every mouthful....The waitress was attentive and knowledgeable about all of the dishes which is so important and made us feel welcome. My zurek was one of the best I’ve tasted during many visits to Poland. My friend enjoyed the special gazpacho soup with refreshing pieces of watermelon. My veal dolmades were extraordinary with many different flavours and combinations that worked so well together. Highly recommended if you are in Lublin and appreciate pricier but worth it for the taste sensation. Good value for money.More

We came to the restaurant based on the high rating on TripAdvisor. What a disappointment! I give it a rate of 2 only because of a friendly waiter. We had duck and beef and it was terrible, cold, sloppy vegetables and duck seamed preheated. And...please change your speakers, what a terribly high frequency bad sound from your sound system. I hope for others that come to the restaurant that you shape up, because this was not a nice experience.More

The restaurant is decorated delightfully in black and gold,the tables are spread out nicely in little areas around.We were lucky enough to eat here twice,and the menu changed after our first visit,so we got a whole new selection of special dishes,from spinach pierogi stuffed with...smoked carp,to lamb saddle with ratatouille couscous.The service was friendly and professional,we tasted some wine before ordering a bottle,too.All in all,we could not find any fault with this lovely placeMore

First thing to mention is that the restaurant is below street level. The place does haut cuisine and does it very well. The menu is small, but everything was perfect as was the service. The portions are, as is usual in Poland quite generous. One...of my companions is a professional chef and is a resident of Lublin. After eating there he said it was the best restaurant in Lublin. The waitress was very good, we did not have room for deserts.More

In the evening of a very long day that had included visiting Majdanek while I was waiting for the night train to Kiev, I went to Kardamon for dinner based on recommendations here. And it was wonderful! They started me off with some bread and...pesto to dip it in - the first of the places I've encountered these little plates of starters in Ukraine and eastern Poland. Both were delicious. Then I had their pork tenderloin which was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. It was served with a mushroom sauce, broccoli and pumpkin dumplings. All delicious. I had had pumpkin dumplings in Wroclaw and though I didn't care for them, I thought it was probably me as I'd never had them before. Here I discovered that done right, they are delicious. Service was also impeccable. I wish it hadn't been my last night in Lublin as I would have loved to go back!More
