I had booked this restaurant for a Saturday night 3 weeks in advance on the basis of Trip Advisors recommendations expecting it to be a busy and popular spot. It’s easy to find on Plac Jana Matejki which is just across the road from the Barbican and the Florian Gate. We were greeted by friendly waitresses in Edwardian style dresses and invited to choose our table in the lower (and empty) section of the restaurant.
We were eventually joined by one other couple but, try as they might, the two gentlemen playing piano and violin could not improve on what was a fairly subdued atmosphere.
The waitresses were attentive and took time to explain and recommend various dishes. The food was good but not exceptional and prices were on a par with other restaurants around the old town.
After one course the other couple were finished and left followed soon after by the remaining diners in the upper section so by around 2130 we were the only ones left in the restaurant on a Saturday night. Was it my aftershave or something we said?
It was unfortunate that we visited Jarema on a cold night in March as it has an elegant dining room with potential but on the basis of this visit it fell short of our expectations when compared to some other restaurants we visited in Krakow.
