The food was great, the service even better, the owner is so so nice, he stood there at the top in case we needed anything during our meal. They have nice jewelry too that you can buy.

Went to Ariel for a group dinner. First, the maitre d was ornery. Second, this place hardly qualifies as authentic Jewish food. The only reason this place gets one star at all was the very nice Klezmer trio that entertained. If not for them, we would have walked out. By far the worst meal we had in Poland. Actually, the...

Krakow has some very good restaurants - this is not one of them! Food wasn't anything special - though price was. It's as close to disaster you will come unfortunately. Avoid!

I am stunned to read that this restaurant is described as Israeli cusine: I visited Israel last summer and had many great meals there- nothing in Ariel even resembles Israeli food. We had dinner in Ariel: the food was dull and unattractive. The fish patties were awful, the chicken (maybe turkey?) was uneatable. The restaurant is over decorated and feels... More

You would think that the restaurants in this area of town would be touristy but this one, near the end of the row of restaurants was very good. Good Polish traditional food with lots of choices. Good beer and wine as well. Good service and reasonably priced. You feel like you're sitting in your Grandmother's house here. Very cozy.

Ate dinner there last night. Food was not the best I've eaten in Kraków. Service was good even though waiter did try to sell certain dishes. Some of the other Jewish restaurants serve better food.

Whilst visiting Krakow we obviously had to visit this old Jewish centre as well. It has been turned into a nice place to be , away from the busy city centre, but with good places and views not to miss. So is this restaurant with good choices on its menu. It comprises three adjacent...broken-through buildings on ground- and first-floors... So... More

We spent a couple of hours here, eating outside in the square in a sunny afternoon, service was friendly and efficient, great recommendations from the menu would definitely recommend for anyone whos not had Jewish Cuisine before. A very enjoyable afternoon.

We visited the restaurant on 5th Oct 2014. The service was good. We wanted to try out jewish food. The chicken and the dumplings were also nice. Definitely tried the kosher Vodka.
