We visited to experience the ambiance of this renowned restaurant The decor and service did not disappoint. However, the quality of our food varied tremendously. One of the guide books advised that the food in this restaurant ranges from mediocre to sublime. Exactly our experience!

During a wonderful walk through the Jewish district we were approached by an employee of Ariel, who told us the restaurant was the oldest Jewish restaurant in Krakow. Attracted by this we decided to go in for lunch. The interior is extremely old fashion, which...More

Being around at Jewish quarter around the lunch time I looked for some place to eat. As Ariel bears the name of my son I checked it out on Facebook and the tripadvisor. I came across some really scary reviews especially from my fellow Brits....More
