Great Jewish food in a lovely setting! We had a 2 course meal there and decided to trust the waiter in recommendations. The Beef soup with cinnamon and honey was fantastic followed up with Lamb that fell off the bone and the lovely traditional potato cakes. Yum!

We went there in November looking for a real traditional Jewish meal. We were not disappointed. Ariel was very atmospheric and the food was A1. The waiter was very helpful and recommended a beautiful three course meal for us, based on tradition. He did not pick the most expensive dishes like a lot of places would have done. Quite the...

Went to Ariel on the recommendation of the taxi driver from the airport and the driver of our Auschwitz trip. Very traditional Jewish restaurant. I chose Sephardic carp served with onions and mushrooms and latke. Dessert was apple and cinnamon pancakes. Good food, efficient service, maybe not the friendliest place compared to the other restaurants we visited but we had... More

After a self guided tour of the Jewish District, I decided to stop for some lunch on a cold December day. Started off with a bowl of Matzo Ball Soup & followed it up with Nalesniki filled with apple & topped with whipped cream. I also savored a hot tea with a shot of vodka. The food was excellent, good... More

We went this restaurant for the lunch. The interior design is unique. The walls are full of pictures and traditional handcraft. We ate borcz soup and cabbage filled with mushroom. The service is good. The prices are ok. The taste of the meals were delicious

We were seeking refuge from bitter cold, so dove in. Very authentic Jewish atmosphere, but empty! Had soup x2 and tea x4, left 100Zloty ($25-30)behind...seems expensive. But soup was good.

The meal was significantly overpriced for below average food. It was by far the most expensive meal we had in our four days in Kraków and most certainly the worst.
