In the heart of the Jewish quarter (which is worth a visit anyway) this restaurant is stylish and authentic. The herring was fantastic, the dumplings so filling and the chocolate desert (can't remember what it was called) fabulous. About £30 a head for 3 courses and wine. Highly recommend.

We came in for an early dinner, after getting the place recommended. The place has three entrances but the different places is not connected to each other. There is also a large outdoor seating area. The restaurant is in the old Jewish part of Krakow and is a Jewish restaurant. We got the waiter to recommend dishes for us. We... More

Being in the Jewish quarter of Krakow and liking the atmosphere of the square, we decided to try a Jewish meal. The food was interesting and quite good and the waitor was very nice.

Close to our hotel, we stopped by for a Jewish dinner on a warm night. There was traditional Jewish music playing inside which enhanced the atmosphere outside too. Lovely dinner of lamb and dumplings.

I stopped for dinner after a day of sightseeing Kazimierz and I was not disappointed with food! Ariel serves Jewish Cuisine which I have not tried before. All three courses were absolutely lovely - see photos below - and they were served very quickly. The waiter was pleasant too. The overall cost was ~100 PLN which is quite pricey for... More

Reasonably priced, so-so food, the square has a nice atmosphere but not convinced it was the best place to eat with hindsight. We went on hotel's recommendation but wish I'd read the trip advisor reviews first. Had to buy veg/potatoes on top of main course price. It was OK - meh...

Spending the whole morning sightseeing, we were in the Jewish quarter for a late lunch. Lamb kofta was ok small portion of lamb on a bed of mixed salad. Tasty, although heavy-handed with the salad dressing. Chicken with spinach cream sauce was tasty but a bit bland without a side. Potato cake looks more like Polenta than rosti which is... More

Kazimierz is a great place, with excellent people and places. Ariel was a very bad experience, the waiter didn't even greet us, and we had to ask for menus; he rudely said no menu, drinks maximum 30 min, although he was taking orders from a nearby table. I doubt 10:15 pm is closing hour. And even if it is, polite... More

We are told that Spielberg frequented this place when filming Schindlers List. I do hope that he enjoyed it as much as we did. Excellent Jewish style cooking with a comfortable terrace in this lovely part of the Kasimierz district of Krakow. Very reasonable prices and good service.

This restaurant is located on Szeroka, among a lot other kosher restaurant. The staff was very friendly and helpful, he recommended a Polish Jewish dish to me, and it was tasty. Also don't miss the small souvenir shop inside the restaurant!
