Interesting decor lends ambience but food was very average.

We loved the decor, like an old fashioned parlour. But we really should have sent the grisly braised meat dish back. They clearly had a cook, but not a chef.

If you like Jewish food this is excellent, at least from the point of view of a Gentile. We visited for lunch and enjoyed every morsel. My chicken livers were to die for and the pascha for dessert was like going to heaven! Probably the best overall meal we had in three days of eating out in Krakow

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend and really glad we went. Really interesting quaint decoration and lovely friendly staff. Menu was interestingly different from what we were used to but delicious.

We ended up here as there was no one around at Ester (another great place a few doors down) We were welcomed in from the cold by our waiter. I didn't catch his name but he was very helpful and knowledgeable of the menu. There was a party of 20+ people in the front dining room at the time but... More

Me and my friends came here for a lunch and we were not disappointed, I had a soup for a starter which was really good and for the main I had a huge half of a duck. It was served with an apple and cranberries which gave that good touch to it. Overall, it was interesting to try a Jewish... More

We had tried to accommodate a Jewish guest by finding a restaurant to her liking. Ariel serves Jewish food, but nothing kosher, so it did not work out. In effect, the menue mainly contains overpriced traditional Polish items, with some Jewish ones thrown in between which are even more expensive. Flavour was also not there. It was one of the...

I'd been recommended this place by some friends in London. It looked beautiful and did not disappoint at all. The staff went out of there way to make us comfortable and welcome and the interior of the restaurant was like dining at your Jewish great-grandmother's home. The food from starters, main and through to dessert was nothing less than perfection.... More

Lovely old fashioned charm with really good food and excellent service. My only problem was the portion size. Way too much food.
