A small restaurant, hidden in a small alleyway, with a HUGE selection of pancakes, offering fillings ranging from fruits to meats, and everything inbetween, they also have a nice coffee selection. The ambience in the restaurant is very relaxed, though the chairs are a bit uncomfortable :-p
Favorite Dish: Asia ate a pancake with fruits and cream (though i can't remember exactly which kind, i think it was banana) - which was absolutely fantastic - served hot, kinda sweet, but not too sweet :-)

One late evening we popped into Vanilla Cafe for a late desert and drink. The modern cafe is decorated in violet and red colours; it also has an outdoor terrace facing the pedestrianised shopping street.
A wide range of homemade cakes and desserts as well as hot and cold drinks is on offer. I only ordered a big Zywiec beer (8,00 PLN) and enjoyed the atmosphere.
The building of Vanilla Cafe is also home to a hotel of the same name.

Favorite Dish: As our accomodation didn't offer breakfast, we once asked in the Tourist Information Office for places offering light snacks in the late morning. The person in charge recommended Restauracja Ulice Miasta, which serves breakfast from 10:00 until 12:00 h.
We took a seat on the outdorr terrace and perused the breakfast menu. I ordered an omlette with fruit and whipped cream (10,00 PLN) and a hot chocolate (10,00 PLN), which was a very good choice for this time of the day. The service was attentive and helpful.
Inside, the restaurant consists of several rooms with wooden decors. For dinner they offer dishes of regional, Polish and Old Polish cuisine.

On our first evening in Lublin we decided to have dinner in one of the places at the Market Square (Rynek). We finally chose Gospoda Sielsko Anielsko, mainly because there were already a few people eating there in the later afternoon.
The interior of the restaurant is held in a wooden rustic style, but we took a seat on the outdoor terrace facing the market square.
The waitresses are dressed in traditional clothes and the bilingual menu offers a wide range of local dishes. Like in many other Polish restaurants, side dishes have to be ordered seperately.
I opted for the pork chop Lublin style (14 PLN) with fried potatoes (4 PLN). To drink I ordered a big Warka beer (6,00 PLN).
As a starter free bread with different kinds of butter and herbs as well as cucumber were brought to our table.
The food was very yummy and the service was friendly, so I can recommend the place.

On our second evening in Lublin we had dinner in Mandragora, which is a Jewish themed restaurant. The menu lists dishes from Middle European and Middle Eastern cuisine.
Inside the restaurant consists of at least two rooms which are decorated in great detail.
Restaurant Mandragora also has an outdoor terrace on the market square, but as it was a bit cold outside we prefered to sit inside and enjoy the cosy atmosphere.
I ordered an Israeli chicken cutlet with potatoes and salad (25 PLN) and washed it down with a Zywiec beer (6,00 PLN). My dish was excellent and it was beautifully arranged on the plate.
Of all the restaurants we visited in Lublin, this was probably my favourite.

Not really an American restaurant, but they have Mexican, American, Italian and Polish dishes. The restaurant is one level down, below the coffeeshop. The ambience is pretty nice, though it can be pretty cramped in some spots. The service is not great, though not the worst in Lublin.
Favorite Dish: I had Mexican Tortillas, which were very tasty, and very filling, and Asia had a salad.

This little restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere, good service, and excellent food. They serve a variety of Israeli dishes, and some local ones as well, just in case :-p The deco on the walls (images of traditional dances mostly) adds to the ambience, as does the soft lighting. The prices are quite reasonable too (i paid just over 50PLN for 2 of us - about $16)
Favorite Dish: I had the Falafel, served with chips and Kapusta (kinda cabbage dish) - was excellent!! Asia had a Salad, which to be honest looked like mostly tomatoes, but had a very nice 'aftertaste' thanks to the sauce that came with it.

Polish food set in old town Lublin. The ambiance is unique for old town as you can sit in the garden and enjoy a lazy summer beer or fill yourself up on fresh Zurek and all the typical traditional Polish favorites. Beware though....old town Lublin can be quite nasty and dangerous at times. As we were sitting enjoying the aforementioned treats.....a bucket of human waste was hurled over the fence into the garden and landed under the table next to us. No....I'm not kidding. The waitress was as stunned as we were however and the police were called, promptly arrived.....and did nothing. We enjoyed the rest of our food (which had yet to emerge from the kitchen thankfully) paid and left. I don't want to discourage anyone from eating here......just wish to color the atmosphere a bit.

More and more pubs in Poland call themselves "Irish pubs" to attract more customers. Well, I guess it's for the Irish to judge whether they can claim this ;-)
This one is OK for food and drink. I only looked around and had a chat with one of the bartenders. An average meal should be within 40 zl ($10), but that depends on how many beers you take ;-) The place is crowded in the evening, I remember that from my first visit to Lublin.

I was attracted to this place by the 1576 date above the door and simply wanted to see the building. As I had already had my lunch, I ordered only coffee.
The place is really nice and quite unique for interior decoration, I could make a whole travelogue of its pictures! It has three little rooms downstairs and a larger restaurant area upstairs... I checked each one and the waiter gladly showed me around.
As for the menu, I only skimmed through it over my coffee but I was stunned to see the selection! The famous Wierzynek in Cracow sounds like a little bistro compared to this one! And the range of prices is to please every taste and pocket - from regular dishes at 30-40 zl (up to $10) to the "Connoiseur's menu" that has you pay even 120 zl ($30).
And they sell cigars, which reminded me of one of the top restaurants in Warsaw, the Belvedere.
