Reviewed June 23, 2013

Great food at reasonable price. I would specially recomend jewish pasta. From our outdoor table, we had a view at Old Synagoge and a band playing live klezmer music.

“Try the chicken”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We were staying in the Jewish quarter for a number of days and tried a number of cafes.in the area. Like most, service is slower than we expect from home but can recommend both chicken dishes ( stuffed with spinach and covered with almonds and with tsimmes )
House wine is good enough to drink with a good range of other alcoholic beverages.
My only complaint is that this seems to be the main cafe in the area with the most smokers dinning-perhaps just there at he wrong time and day

“there is nothing in real”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We did try to start our weekend with a diner on Cracow's Kazimierz (old Juwish quarter). We went to the Szeroka street (opposit site to the Rehmu sinagogue). There we took place outside on the Ester Restaurant garden/ground. We checked the menu and did try to order but... A waitrice told us about one thing we chosed: "We finished to serve it at all". For the second one: "There is no more for the moment" (it was about 7 PM only on Friday evening!). Then we left...

“In the heart of the Jewish quarter.”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Stopped here for a snack one afternoon. The coffee was really good but the pancakes with apple and honey weren't the best I've tasted in Krakow. Round the corner is a small cafe / pub that beats it hands down. 16PLN for one pancake and a but if stewed fruit is a bit excessive, they were clearly warmed up and rather charred. That's a pity as the Krakovians do pancakes really well. Bit of squirty cream didn't add much to it, if they read this review......make them hot, use ice cream for a contrast and get the chef to cut the apple with a knife that hasn't been used to cut either onions or garlic! However, it did look a very nice hotel.,

“A very sweet place to go”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

A gem of the Kazimierz district in Krakow. My family and I went to the restaurant twice n the week running up to Easter and we were all very pleased with the food, the service and the atmosphere, although a little quiet. The staeks are very nice and cooked to perfection and I would also recommend the chicken breasts stuffed with Spinach. Great value for money and highly recommended
