Staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was absolutely outstanding. There was live traditional Jewish music on the Friday and Saturday nights from a pair of brilliant musicians on the accordion and violin. We stayed in Krakow for 7 days, had some amazing...food from various places, but this was the best meal by far!More

We had an incredible meal here with fantastic wine and cocktails. We sat outside under the heaters and couldn’t have been happier to find this restaurant. The fried dumplings were incredibly tasty and the stuffed cabbage leaf delicious. We had stroganoff in bread bowls for...mains and were not disappointed! Our waitress was fantastic and so polite. We don’t speak much polish at all but her English was so good it made the whole process easy. A must visit!!More

My first restaurant I've visited in Poland. I've heard many good things about the food and service. There was a wide range of wines and of course the best Pierogi! Our waitress, Tetiana, was exceptional. Everyone is so kind including the lovely owner and to...top everything off , the atmosphere was impeccable. 100% recommend.More

We've had a dinner for two. Portions were miniscule...falafel sauce garlic heavy, chulent cheeks literally had three pieces of beef and were black pepper overpowered. The only good thing was live music. Service quite poor, had our wine after the starters and definitely there was...no teamwork. There much better places to go to for a meal in Kazimierz district. Shame really.More

We love the food and the service at this restaurant. The service charge is not obligated, with a lot of other restaurants it is. They have great food, for a good price.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here on our final evening in Krakow. The menu was clearly marked with gluten free options which is great as I have coeliac disease. The food was delicious, tasty and reasonably priced! The servers were very polite and attentive throughout...the whole meal! I hope to visit again one day.More

We had a tour of the area earlier that day and the tour guide had said to visit a restaurant in this area for Jewish food etc so we decided to wander back that night for dinner and this restaurant was the only visibly busyish...restaurant so we thought that was a good sign and requested a table. We could hear the couple next to us saying how much they loved their food and this got us excited for ours but unfortunately, we can't say the same for what we had that night. I had the Eggplant to start with my partner having the Holiszkes, both were nice but nothing to rave or get excited about sadly. Our mains then came with my partner having the Chicken breast grilled with garlic butter (was told that it wasn't chicken though the menu is a typo and that it's actually turkey) he said it was very bland and dry due to there being no sauce. I had the Royal mix Pierogi which was so very very bland and the mushroom sauce was similar to the taste of mushroom soup and has a similar thick consistency. I left 2 pieces of Pierogi to which the waitress did ask if I didn't like it, I said I was just full but I was just bored of eating it to be honest. We then had the Jewish Cheesecake to share which was actually very nice. We asked for our bill which had the "Recommended Service Charge" which was fine but it also had an unknown charge of 39 zl at the start which we could not identify due to it being written in Polish. We did not question it as at this point we just wanted to go back to the hotel, the only thing we could think of is that it was for the entertainment that evening which was 2 men playing music off and on (1 song then they would disappear and return 5 minutes later, play another song and disappear so on so forth). Looking at other reviews I'm saddened that we had this experience and can only hope this isn't the norm.More

Sorry just saw your question and my reply is probably too late. Our bill came to £50 but there was 2 bottles of wine and 4 pints of beer
