We ate on the patio. The food was delicious (and we are vegetarian). Reminded us of our childhood (grandmothers cooking)

We dined here in the evening on a visit to the Old Jewish Quarter. Once we were seated the staff seemed to be more interested in 'persuading' passers-by to dine rather than looking after the ones they already had! Two of our party of four...More

Really cozy place with live klesmer music which Was a very nice experience. With that said the food was far below the ranking on tripadvisor. Visit for the atmosphere and have a drink, not dinner.

I came twice ( with my mother) to this delightful restaurant/ bistro. It has so much charm and character. It is essentially a Jewish kosher cuisine with variations of other options. I enjoyed my experiences immensely, and so did my mother. The interior has paintings...More

It is the music which makes this place special. On our evening, the trio composed of violin, double bass and accordion gave us a wonderful insight into Jewish musical tradition (and singing). Food ok, cholek drying, good kosher wine. Need to reserve.

We had spied the Restaurant on a tour of the Jewish district and been informed it featured in the Film Schindler's list, it's picturesque. We walked past again later and perused the menu, were invited in by a waiter with some cheeky banter, but had...More

Pretty disappointing and clearly relies on its setting in the main square in Kazimierz and decoration. The variety on the menu is good as well. Garlic soup was good but my portions were really lacking in the good bits (meat and fish) and bulked up...More

We discovered Ariel quite by accident when searching for a meal one evening during our stay in Kraków in 2017. We had been hustled into a nearby restaurant that will remain nameless, only to leave in short order due to the lack of variety on...More

We did not taste the food, because we left. We waited for order, with menus closed. Waited. Waited. Waiter appeared, but took a watering-can and started to pour the flowers without interest in customers. I have no opinion about food, but I just want to...More

As my partner and I ate there last summer, I have no idea what concert is playing, but I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you eat at Szara Kazimierz across the street instead. The food and service are much better. Note: there... More
