Taken by a local, we walked through the very atmospheric jewish district and were told how it had gone into deep decline during the communist area before becoming again the vibrant area it is now. As we entered the square, we heard live music, and that was the Restauracja Ester. It is a great place to sit on a terrace,... More

We had never tried israeli food and decided to try it. We were very pleasantly surprised. There was also live music which was great and added to the atmosphere. The price is also very good, as it is in Poland almost everywhere. Polish food is great, and we ate amazing food on our trip there, but this was the best... More

Stopped here for lunch walking back to the old town after visiting the Oskar Schindler factory. The restaurant is first in a long line and you will be stopped and almost dragged into many of them. We just had a couple of beers and some pierogi. I had the wild boar which I took the option of having deep fried... More

Who knew that Krakow Poland has the best ice cream on the planet? We stopped into this place during the afternoon to hear the outdoor klezmer band and have some ice cream. The dessert was amazing, and looking around, the main dishes looked good as well. This was one of several positive restaurant experiences in very touristy areas of Krakow.... More

We were looking for a Polish Restaurant near our hotel in the Jewish Quarter and were recommended this. It was a foul night so by the time we arrived it was pretty much empty. That didn't deter the staff who treated us courteously and answered our questions about the menu. We mainly ate traditional Jewish food - clearly identified on... More

Right across from the old synagogue, the Ester Restaurant had a lovely outside seating area with live music. My friend had the salmon with zucchini fritters. She said it was perfectly done. I had the beetroot soup with a cabbage and mushroom wrap. The soup was delicately seasoned and the wrap was huge! I also had the Ester salad that... More

My wife and I were keen to sample some local specialities and are very pleased that we did, The beetroot soup with lamp dumplings was wonderful whilst the beef cheeks melted in the mouth. House Wine was better than anticipated and the servive good. Cannot fault the experience.

Nice place to sit outside on a warm summer eve, right in the heart of the jewish quarter. However, the service is an issue. You need a lot of time.
