Near to the Rynek square. Nice ambiance, good food and good service. Recommended. Slightly more expensive than other places we'd been in Poland and Lublin.

Perfect food and helpful staff-we have been looked after very well-more food that we could eat-service of the highest standard. If you are in Lublin then you can't miss this place for local homely meal.

The cheerful waiter was very attentive and checked often to make sure I was enjoying my food. I ordered pierogi (assortment of 3 varieties: duck, cheese, and veal) with red clear borscht. I ordered creme brûlée and espresso for dessert. Everything was delicious. I never expect anyone to speak English when I travel, but most of the staff here speaks... More

The venue is central to Old Lublin, and the restaurant consists of numerous smaller areas that makes dinner more private and personal. The Parmesan Salad was very good, as were the Russian Pirogis and the Zurek (sour rye soup). Service, while friendly, was at a glacial pace. Our dinner (and the other tables around us) took almost 2 hours to... More

Well, it's not the food which has impressed me at Magia (though it was OK!), but the quality of service. It's rare case scenario in Poland that you are served by professional waiters - and this is what actually happened to us at that restaurant. I was really impressed by approach of those young guys to the business - I... More

About half-way through a month-long trip through Poland we happened on Magia, attracted by its ivy-covered courtyard and warm lights. Our dinners – one of us tried lamb, the other duck – were beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. After tramping through touristy restaurants in Gdansk, Warsaw, Krakow, and Zakopane, this was the best food we'd encountered and for one of... More

The food was more than just OK, yet the place did not grab me. It is nicely located on the main route leading from the old town's very centre to the castle. Starter - sublime. Seconds - predictable. Fine dessert. Very goodish, definitely not more.

We were with a tour group in a private room. Our menu was fixed. The onion soup was tasty, chicken, veggies and potatoes fine. Dessert? ICE CREAM with fruit. Seems like per capita, there is one ice cream vendor to every household. The restaurant has a nice courtyard but beware of smokers. Nice decor. Great service.

The pork was lovely when we were there and we felt very relaxed in the friendly atmosphere. The waiters were friendly and the prosecco promotion was an amusing touch

I always searching for restaurant during our trip and Tripadvisor is my guide when it comes to food. Reading reviews about the place is very tempting not everyone happy about this restaurant, but most writers were positive about it. So, we tried. The old town of Lublin is lined up with restaurants, but we're looking to particular one only the... More
