The restaurant at hotel Ester

The restaurant is not run by the hotel - but it lies inside the hotel and is also breakfast restaurant for hotel guests. I was surprised by the quality of such a restaurant at a small hotel. Very nice food indeed. The servants did not quite live up to the good standard of the food - and no... read more

Good food, nice music, in their outdoor patio. Potato pancakes were great. The music started at 1:00 or so.

We went to this resturant as it was th busiest in the area, and we always tend to go to the places that look the busiest as it tends to be the best. This was not the case this evening. We walked to the outdoor seating area as it was a lovely evening out. We ordered some drinks right away... More

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. It was all very relaxing and we had beers and a plate of fried dumplings as a snack. Delicious food and... More

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.

They serve poor mix of jewish polish and international food and the worst white wine I ve ever tried for 35 zł... More

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.
