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.

We had a good lunch here, having a nice salad on the terrace. Good choice, good food, good service. There are certainly other options around, but Ester is certainly a good choice.

Wonderful outdoor seating. Listened to live music by a quartet called Inejnem. Nice atmosphere to relax to after a day of touring. Checked out the Hotel Ester associated w/the restaurant and would consider it an option should I ever return.

Small but excellent menu and very good value for money. Eat under the umbrellas on the cobbled terrace with background live music.

We tried to eat here, but after entering the restaurant, being ignored for a quite long time and finally sitting on our own (as many others did In the same time) we have finally welcomed and given the menu. We waited other ten minutes and when finally the waiter came back he told us that food would not be served.... More

We passed an enjoyable evening at the Hotel Ester, trying out some traditional food. The atmosphere was good in the garden with traditional music and a good vibe. Service was polite and fast. We ordered a selection of traditional Jewish food which we really enjoyed. Everything was faultless with the food.
