A Trip Advisor search, and this was our choice.

Every time we visit a new city or town, I use Trip Advisor for help. We dined at this restaurant because of that. A short walk to the Jewish Quarter from the hotel. Located in a street with many many other restaurants for competition. We chose to sit outside under the awning, at the front of the... read more

Huge servings. I liked the food a lot. We had folks with dietary restrictions in our party, and they had no problem as there was a variety of meats and vegetarian dishes as well. The venison perogis were amazing.

Had soup here twice and it was very good. Breakfast had interesting choices; meats, cheeses, fruit, cereals, yogurt, drinks, pastries that were not loaded with sugar and several choices that I did not recognize.

The food was delicious. My wife asked for a liver with cranberry sauce and she said it was delicious. I had a cholent and was really good too. The terrace is nice, but rounded tables for two a bit small. Live jewish music is great for having a good dinner. Recommended !!!

This restaurant is located in the heart of the old jewish sector. They play Klesmer music in the evenings which was very nice. The service and dinner were excellent.

I was traveling with a group, and we had a couple of meals in a private room with a pre-selected vegetarian menu, so I can't tell you about everything that the Ester Restaurant offers, but everything that we had was really delicious. If you visit in the summer when the sidewalk cafe is operating, you can hear live klezmer music... More

We had wandered around the Kazimierz area looking for somewhere to eat, and settled on this restaurant. The menu looked good, and the staff were welcoming and helpful. It is a Jewish themed restaurant, and serves a variety of traditional Jewish and Polish dishes. We were very impressed with the menu, and the food was delicious. We both had soup... More

I had Polish beetroot borsht with dumplings and a main course of chicken in walnuts and almonds. The main was very good and the borsht was the best thing I ate in Poland and frankly they could have just brought me a big dish of this and nothing else and I would have been very happy. I set outside well... More

We had lunch there today. The food was good (soup + salad Ester). Staff was friendly. Would we go there again? I don't think so, but this isn't due to the restaurant, but due to the fact that there are many good restaurants in Krakow. One isn't absolutely going to be disappointed.
