We ate here, at an outside table, on our first night in Krakow, so can't comment on the interior. As the headline suggests, this was a perfectly pleasant meal, cooked with good ingredients, especially the meat and fish, to a high standard, The portions were plentiful, the service was competent and the meal was enjoyable. In UK terms, the cost,... More

The Ariel Restaurant is in the Jewish quarter of Krakow, step inside and you are transported back in time, beautiful paintings of Rabbi's, synagogues etc adorn the walls and the furniture reflects a bygone era. A friend and I booked a meal with music for Friday night, the atmosphere in the restaurant is intimate and relaxed, the food, whilst not... More

I knew nothing about this place, it was just a suitable stopping point while we were wandering around the Jewish quarter. There were a few people already sat outside and the atmosphere and location looked good. The friendly waiter did his job by enticing us to sit and he also assisted by recommending food to share as we only wanted... More

We visited the restaurant late in the evening. We dined outside as the weather was pleasant. We ordered starters as well as pierogi and Jewish stew. The food was quite tasty and the waiter polite. Though the restaurant is on the expensive side for Poland, we did not regret our choice

We had lunch there, good and friendly service, following a friend's advice to go there; and then we followed the waiter's advice and enjoyed the food, mainly traditional jewish dishes. The terrace is obviously much nicer than sitting inside, so if weather allows and there are no tourgrpups from italy, which were really loud, most unpleasant.

We had high hopes for this as the final meal for our group cycling holiday in Poland. Compared to the rest of our trip the food was quite expensive and not great. We couldn't see the 'concert' from our table and yet were charged 125zl for it - 25 per person (no student / child discount). Plenty of better alternatives.

It was a lovely experience and we went to the concert which was excellent. I will say however, there was a charge of 25zł just to see it and there was equally good Jewish band just next door for free. As a group we had goose neck, Jewish stew, mozaball soup, the beef and honey soup, all fantastic and really... More
