We had been booked into this restaurant by our tour company as we were a large party including school children who were very excited about eating in a traditional Jewish restaurant. Upon entering the restaurant we were shown to the upstairs room which is very traditional but there had been a mix up with the booking. The restaurant expected four... More

Being in the Jewish quarter of Krakow we wanted to eat in a traditional Jewish restaurant and traditional it was. The décor appeared to be dated but was so appropriate. The service was excellent and the food was typically Jewish and delicious. It was a very enjoyable experience and we felt we had gone back in time, we left feeling... More

I'd been on a 4 day tour to Krakow, and the group ate in this restaurant on our final night. I loved the ambience, and paintings on the wall and it felt like a genuine Jewish restaurant.

A lovely little authentic Jewish cafe. We called in for coffee but they persuaded us to have a alcoholic coffee and cheesecake. It was very expensive for what we had.

In the heart of the Jewish quarter, Ariel is a traditional Jewish kosher restaurant. Execellent food, reasonable prices and friendly service combine to make this a great place to eat. I had matzah-ball soup and beef Ravioli with potato latke and I couldn't finish it, so prepeare for big portions.

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!

Thank Gavin D
