I absolutely loved this place. Lovely decor with so many paintings. Food was absolutely delicious, I strongly recommend the Sephardic Carp. Tried Passover cheese and was a bit unsure but it was really delicious. Reasonably priced for the quality of food and good service. Situated...in a lovely old part of town.More

We weren't sure what to expect at a Jewish restaurant but really enjoyed our meal here. We were sat in a room full of paintings of Jewish people, more like a room in someone's home than a restaurant. The service was very good and they...are happy to explain the dishes on the menu. I had beetroot soup with a croquette, which was a very large meat filled croquette. My main was traditional Jewish store, very nice but a huge portion which I couldn't finish. The kosher red wine was delicious. My partner enjoyed his Jewish style dumpling which was like a huge savoury doughnut. He had the carp for his main which he also enjoyed. The food is fairly plain overall but very well done and glad we tried it.More

I would recommend that you do a tour of the old Jewish quarter and then go here. The menu is very interesting. If you imagine you travelled back to 1935 and were taken out to a nice restaurant in a foreign city this may give...an idea. The food is not modern and funky. It is quite old style and nothing like anything we have tried anywhere else. The food had very infesting flavours and textures and is a great experience. One of the most interesting places we have eaten. We had the dumpling which was a bit like a savoury donut, fried ravioli. Roast beef and goose with cherries for main dishes then Passover cheese and the nut thing with honey and chocolate for dessert.More

This is the one restaurant you can not afford to miss. The food is sublime, the kosher wine is simply beautiful, the waiters are your new best friends. Put yourself in their hands and you can't go wrong. It is the oldest Jewish restaurant in...the district, it was used by Speiberg in the film Schindler's list and you can see why, it is so atmospheric. Try it, you won't be disappointed.More

Lovely food. Great service. Great location. Also nice to come to a traditional and authentic Jewish restaurant in the Jewish quarter of Krakow. Even better that it’s a mere 15 second walk to our hotel, the Ester after a carafe of red wine! Recommend this...place highly!More
