DELICIOUS HOMESTYLE JEWISH COOKING

We tried 4 different dishes and enjoyed them as much as if my mother had made them. It was quite a treat to find such a great selection of dishes that reminded us of our parents and grandparents cooking. Excelent service given by a gentleman who got all of the tables covered in no time.

The restaurant is very impersonal. You immediately get the feeling that you are a number to be translated in Zlotys

What a gem! We absolutely loved this place, it had the feel that you were walking into a traditional Jewish home with a lovely warm atmosphere and great authentic decor. The food was amazing, the waiter (or possibly owner) gave us some recommendations on food as we were quite unsure what to order since it was such a traditional Jewish... More

Good choice on the menu and excellent food. Good location with opportunities to eat inside or out. Quick, efficient and courteous service. Would recommend. For British people eating in Krakow it is a good place to try traditional cuisine and excellent value.

My mum and I walked to the place after a long day of tours, this was the first time in our time in Kraków that staff have had a personality and wanted to make us laugh and help us with ordering! I went for the roast duck with cranberry and it was AMAZING! I ate it all!! My mum didn't... More

Waiter extremely rude. I speak Polish, he must have thought I was a local and treated me and my guest like trash. Not happy at all. Have dined at both Szara and Klezmer Hois a few steps away from this one and both were brilliant. Don't waste your time or money. Better options and quality of food available elsewhere.

A tour guide recommended this restaurant, so we selected it among the multitude on ul. Szeroka. The food was really lackluster. Soggy roast beef awash in a nondescript sauce and the worst potato pancakes we have ever tasted. To add insult to injury the waiter was cheeky enough to point out to us that the bill did not include service.
