We sat outside with a great view of the Main Square; we definitely needed to be under an umbrella. The serving staff were nice and attentive - using their best English to assist us. The food was delicious and they kept the drinks coming. They take credit cards or cash. We were here on a Sunday and there were so... More

Great restaurant on the central plaza in Krakow. Food was excellent and the service was great. Try one of their cocktails. The decor inside is also fantastic.

The best dining experience we had in kracow. As it was a cool, damp evening, we liked what we saw on the menu, and decided to call in for our early evening meal. We were led down two flights of stairs, to what i can only describe as a 12 century cellar, that tried to resemble a posh French boudoir,... More

My husband and I walked over to the restaurant at around 3pm on a Friday hoping to get reservations for that evening's entertainment. The young woman who met us at the door let us go into the music room and select our table for that evening! We made 8:30pm reservations so that we could order dinner and wine before the... More

Returned once again to the Piano Rouge. My 4th year. The food was very good and the drinks also. The prices are very reasonable and the environment is great to help you relax. The staff are very attentive.

Piano Rouge has many things in its favour, great location near the Market Sq, nice staff and good food.. The Polish soup served in a bread bowl is superb. The restaurant itself is a funny place. I'd understand if someone hated the place or loved it to be honest. It's an acquired taste.. Curtain ceilings, dark, Mis mash of rooms... More

This place certainly has the 'wow' factor with its opulent decor and smooth ambience. The restaurant has a burlesque feel with its ornate furnishings and glittery walls. We went unannounced last night and the friendly front of house fit us in without any fuss. Our table was in the main section with a fantastic view of the live artist and... More

Probably the best meal we had on our trip, and the only one I didn't finish because I wasn't that hungry - shame! I had the mushroom and onion soup, served inside bread which was really hearty and tasty. This would probably have been enough for me on this particular evening but I'd already ordered the prawn risotto. Again, really... More

basement "cellar" restaurant, stone walls (with gliitter!!), red fairy lights, velvet curtains, opulence, all a bit OTT for a restaurant - but it definitely works - and the food is great too!! They also have live music nights and the duo performing on the night we were there were really very good. Seeing is believing, loved it. Truly en experience!!

Wonderful, unique atmosphere - would be a great place for a date night or a girls' night out. The food was really good at a reasonable price (you pay a little more here than you would for the same quality elsewhere in Krakow, but the atmosphere and show are well worth it), although I got the shrimp risotto which was...
