I was in Krakow with a Holocaust surviver for 1 week and our dinner at Ariel was by far the best. Our server was so polite and kind to us (every where else we went, I felt extremely uncomfortable and out of place). I had the Jewish Dumpling with vegetable soup and apple cake for dessert. Everything was so great.... More

I am embarrassed to say I fell on this trap. Having lived on central Europe I feel quite comfortable trying new places, but this one surprised me in a bad way. The place is gorgeous, there is music and a very - or intensively - courteous waiter. This courtesy was always between courtesy and mockery, and made us uncomfortable. The... More

We ate here on our arrival in Krakow. The food was fine, the omelette was more like a pancake than I am used to but it was nice enough. The restaurant was excellent value, the staff were friendly and the location as good. But the absolute best thing about this place was the coffee - it was just wonderful so... More

The service and food is always impeccable at Ariel. On this occasion we stayed for lunch, however, in the past we have enjoyed dinner and traditional music in the evening. It is worth the trip across to Kazimierz!

I visited last year and again this year and am sorry to say this has gone downhill. The quality of the food lags behind most of the other restaurants on ul szeroka. The food isn't nearly as tasty or well presented as it used to be.

This is the best known Jewish restaurant in Kazimerz. I ate roast goose, but was told that it came in fresh cherry sauce. The sauce was canned cherries with cornstarch. The food was served in small portions. The prices are FAR toffffffo high. The server was very nice. Eating outside was possible here and in many places.f

We initially visited Ariel just for a few drinks but enjoyed the atmosphere so much that we stayed for food too. We had Lamb Kofta which is one of the best meals I have ever had. As with most places in Krakow, it is relatively cheap, so highly recommended.

Ate here after walking around trying to find something suitable for the both of us. Food was nice, around the same price as the market in old town. Waiters weren't very talkative but we're polite and did their job, the one outside recommended a few dishes for us to try, can't complain.

We wanted to have two cups of coffees, and we didn't want to eat as it was not lunchtime. The waiter asked us ironically if we wanted to share one cup only. Later when I ordered a small bottle of mineral water he suggested me to go to the market to buy one. In the end agreed in one glass... More
