We went twice to this quirky restuarant. Good choice of food. Lovely staff and music added to the atmosphere. You need to book as always full

Stopped in for brunch and it had only just opened so we were the only customers. The hot chocolate was very rich, and a large glass too. I had apple pie and ice-cream, which was lovely. The place is worth a visit just to look...More

The meals were not as high level, what was expected. The interior is fantastic, the music was fine, and sounded very good! The service started a bit "dry", but became friendly, soon! There were not so much jewish meals, but the drinks were OK!

We stayed 3 nights in the Kazimierz area of Krakow and undoubtedly this is the area for dining. The food is excellent, incorporating traditional Jewish elements, the whole experience enhanced by a great musical duo, one on violin, the other vocal and guitar.

This is an interesting restaurant. It is warm and cosy, and the service is pleasant. The food is quite good, but on the heavy side.

Very polite service, delicious food, that varies from traditional Polish and Israeli plates to more modern cuisine. Live music that accompanies your dinner beautifully. A bit pricey for Krakow`s standards but worth the extra cost. Their version of cheesecake is a must!

Best way to contact them is through their facebook page. That is how we booked and they responded quite quickly. Their website is not that user friendly but you can download the menu and covert to English.
