Mandragora Restaurant in Lublin, Poland
by Valdas Travel Video - 0

Poland Lublin Restaurant

The Mandragora, located in Lublin, Poland, is not only a restaurant, but also a Jewish cultural institution.

All dishes in menu are cautiously selected so that, to the extent possible, they reflect the nature of traditional Jewish cuisine. On entering, the first thing most visitors notice is the restaurant’s resemblance to a museum dedicated to Israel and Judaism.



The Mandragora is an amazing trip inside the Jewish culture and tradition combined with the history of pre-war Lublin.
