Great location - okay food

I dined here with 3 others. I ordered the lamb kabob and it was dry and overcooked. The salad and the barley soup with turkey meatballs, however, were very tasty. My dining companions enjoyed their food, especially the potato latkes.

Set on a square in Kazimierz - the centre of the Krakow Jewish community for 500 years - Ariel, as a Jewish restaurant had tradition and context going for it, but it failed miserably on most fronts... As we arrived on a bright late afternoon we sat outside and were brought the menu and our order was taken - so... More

Perfect setting, lovely flowers and garden like scenery, great waitstaff. The service was above par. There were two very large groups but the service to the main dining areas was not affected. The menu was large and everything we ordered was well prepared and tasted oh so delicious. A wonderful meal.

One of the older restaurants with history, this place serves up authentic Jewish cuisine. The barley soup with Turkey balls as well as the Kofta were really good. The chicken liver appetiser was the definite highlight of the place.

We recently dined at this restaurant twice during a 5 night stay in Krakow. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. I can highly recommend the potato latkas in vegetable sauce and also the liqueur hot chocolate.

We came here as recommended by the guide book for the Jewish experience though it's not really all it's cracked up to be. You do feel a bit like they've made it into a theme park exhibit with it made to look like your grandmas front room. Sadly even though there was tables in the main room we were told... More

I had dinner at Ariel with a couple of friends the other night. I had the potato dumpling and the lamb kofta with a side of latkas (potato pancakes). The food was all very nice and I was very full by the end! I finished with a 'Purim tea' (tea with cherry vodka and cinnamon) which was refreshing and delicious.... More

Great food and atmosphere! Sat outside, very clean, was served immediately, ordered chicken with rice and veg. I couldnt finish it as there were 3 pieces of chicken. Apple pie was delicious. Service was excellent. Ate here twice because the food was so good. Lovely area too. Give it a go!

The restaurant is very nice from The outside, with a funny interior. The menu is typically Jewish. The food wasn't tasty, and the waiter was pushy, not customer friendly. Would not recommend it to my friend for dinner
