Lunch/Dinner in the Jewish quarter

First day of our stay we had lunch here. Good selection on menu of Jewish/Polish food. Tried things I had not tried before and enjoyed the food immensely. The price of the meal was reasonable and the service was good.

Chose this restaurant for dinner as it was the busiest by far. The herring starter was amazing. The chicken with walnuts and almonds was also amazing. My husband just had plain steak and chips . I recommend this restaurant based on service and quality of the food. Price was excellent. We tried another restaurant a few doors up and was... More

We had a stroll around the Jewish quarter and came across a square full of restaurants and bars. This place had lots of outside comfortable seating and a local band playing what sounded to me like typical Jewish music.

Good meal, good service and reasonable prices. Plus entertainment for a Jewish music band. Probably the best night during our stay. We were resident in the hotel so could have extra wine as we did not have far to ttravel! Highly recommended.

Had lunch here at the start of our visit to Kraków, and it was a delicious start. Some of the best pierogis I've had, and a fantastic apple pie - not to be missed! There was a Jewish musical ensemble playing which contributed to a delightful atmosphere.
