After a wonderful day in the Jewish quarter, we were looking for a Jewish dining experience and we certainly found it. The food was excellent and we even sampled a Galilean wine from the Golan Heights winery. The music was a wonderful enhancement to a great evening. Staff were a little serious but very attentive and the whole atmosphere of... More

We were looking for somewhere for a drink and a light lunch time "snack" and chose Ariel. Definitely a good choice. The beer was excellent and we had fried ravioli and chicken salad which the ladies shared. Staff did not bat an eyelid when we asked for two plates for salad indeed they brought it served up on the two... More

The staff were very good and the entertainment was excellent,pity the food wasn't so good.... But it didn't spoil our enjoyment of the Jewish experience.

We were exploring the Jewish quarter through the day and the manager was outside the restaurant. He asked if we would like to eat there that night. We looked at the menu which was very good for normal people but I am a chefs nightmare because I enjoy plain simple cooking. I asked was there any chance of doing boiled... More

This is the best looking of the many Jewish restaurantd in Kasamierz. It is clean and tidy with dim lighting, dark wood furniture and many paintings. A fresh rose and lit candle on each table. The staff I met spoke excellent English and were helpful and chose a meal for me. The soup (beef, veg, honey and cummin) was very... More

Visited with a group last night. No choice for group dining. Chicken and rice. The restaurant didn't really make much of an effort at all. The soup was very good however. Desert was dire. Some kind of cheese cake topping without the biscuit base. Ariel doesn't have to worry too much about repeat business and so the quality of the... More

The first thing you notice about this restaurant is the ambiance created within. You can't miss the Jewish star outside the entrance and its Old World feel. It immediately transports you back to an earlier era. The food choices are varied and the service is both personal and professional. The dishes are presented in a manner befitting a place with...

Lovely traditional Jewish restaurant deep in Kamierez district, ok so the decor is like being in your Jewish granny's living room but it adds to the ambience, certainly not a clinical corporate / chain restaurant! Food was lovely and although the staff looked a bit shocked when we went in (it was about 10pm) the service was great and our... More
