Average food, nice wine

My wife and I had dinner here one evening. We had a bottle of Israeli white wine which was quite expensive but of excellent quality. The food, however, was very average and not cheap. I had the cabbage leaves stuffed with mince - very bland and unexciting. I can't remember what my wife had to... read more

After seeing Ariel recommended in multiple tour books (Rick Steves' and the Michelin book), and also having it proclaimed as excellent by a guide who accompanied us on a local tour, we decided to give it a try. We also had seen ads that touted traditional klezmer music, and we really wanted that dinner accompaniment. What an incredible disappointment on... More

Ariel is a restaurant in the Jewish Quarter set in a square. Outside or inside dining. Beautiful food with a great atmosphere. Waiters very attentive

Nice little restaurant in the Jewish quarter with fast service and a good range of dishes Polish, Jewish and mainstream. There was even a band playing. You might recognise the square from the movie Schindler's List.

This restaurant is hard to review, as it specialized in Jewish food about which we are unfamiliar. The chicken liver stuffed goose neck is their specialty, and it was interesting. Not sure I would get it again. The fried kretlah was tasty enough - but the chicken, although pounded, was dry. Overall, in interesting experience if you are looking for... More

We went to the Jewish quarter for dinner and wanted to taste some real jewish food while there. The restaurant was a disappointment-quality of the food was just not quite there and the lamb skewer was overcooked. Very good wine though.

We had never eaten Jewish food and what with our visit to the camps and staying on top the Jewish quarter we decided to get a taste. We booked the table before and was asked did we want music which we agreed to. We where taken to an upstairs room that was just like an old fashioned dinning room. We... More

We had high expectations of this restaurant, but were utterly disappointed. The place is grossly overpriced and the service outright poor and mechanical. One can argue about the taste of Jewish food, we did not like it, but serving cold chips cannot be justified. All of us had cold chips. One of us told the waiter of the cold chips... More

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.
