Food was good, well cooked and tasty, and enjoyed by all in the party, but the deal breaker had to be the host (Gabriel?) and his selection of home-made flavoured vodkas.. We were made to feel like friends rather than customers and that is a rare thing in any city. Would recommend for a pleasant evenings wine and dine, no pretence just a great place to spend time at.

Found by chance walking round the Jewish quarter and definitely an excellent choice.
Friendly welcome upon arrival and seated close to the entrance door with more seats to the rear.
Food presentation was excellent and very good value for money.

I visited this restaurant with a large group of friends and, as always, had a great welcome and service. Great food and drink. Great fun atmosphere.

We had a wonderful meal here. The food was superb - very filling and huge portions, we had the beetroot soup with mushroom dumplings to start with and then I had salmon and my husband went for the pork knuckle. It was the first time either of us had tried Polish cuisine and both dishes were delicious but left us with no room for dessert. (Although we did find room for the complimentary vodka shots).

The staff were particularly friendly and spoke excellent English. I heartily recommend Gabriel's homemade vodka - if you like a Bloody Mary his horseradish vodka really hits the spot! In fact we returned the following evening for a couple more!

We were looking for somewhere to eat one night and consulted tripadvisor and decided this restaurant was not to far from where we were staying. We arrived without a reservation on a Saturday evening and were given a table but were instructed that they needed it back by 8pm which was fine..this was 5.30pm so we envisaged we would be finished long before then.

The meal was lovely...there were 3 of us and we each had something different and tried each others and we had a bottle of wine..the price of a 2 course meal and bottle of wine was very reasonable. At the end of the meal we were given a complementary shot of vodka each..which was very nice.

I would definitely go back if i was in Krakow again
