Description: The Hard Rock Cafe in Krakow, which used to be the capital of Poland, is situated in the UNESCO World Heritage Market Square next door to the most famous church in Poland - St. Mary’s Basilica. From the tallest of its 2 towers, on the hour every hour, the bugle player plays the "Hejnal". According to legend, in 1241 as the Mongol invasion of Poland approached the Krakow, a guard on the church tower sounded the alarm by playing the "Hejnal", and the city gates were closed before the city could be taken. The bugler, however, was shot in the throat and did not complete the tune, which is why it now ends abruptly before completion The 500-square-meter cafe includes seating for 160 over three floors, two vibrant bars and a Rock Shop. Hard Rock Cafe Krakow showcases memorabilia from some of the world's most iconic artists, including John Lennon, KISS, Prince and The Who. Key memorabilia items are now on display, from Jimi Hendrix’s embroidered poncho; and an autographed silver harmonica played by Bob Dylan; to a pair of black tassel gloves worn by Madonna and an autographed cymbal played by Tico Torres of Bon Jovi.

We usually avoid chain restaurants when away in a new country but having checked out the other places doing ribs, this seemed the obvious choice. We were originally told that we could not reserve a table on a Saturday night but soon enough they relented. Good beer, good food and good service

Thank you for your great review! You couldn't have chosen better place to have ribs - just like in Tennessee, our smokehouse specialties are smoked here in our kitchen and our chef makes sure it brings out just the right, rustic, wonderful, wood-smoke flavor. I will make sure that your feedback is passed on to the team and I hope... More

One of the nicest looking Hard Rocks I've seen, the building itself is lovely and the inside has great views of the Market Square. Between us we had a range of food, from the club sandwich to the famous burgers, all of which gathered favourable reviews. Prices were very decent compared to other Hard Rocks. It was a bit empty...

Well the club Sandwitch was massive, very tasty and good value for money. Staff were friendly, atmosphere was good. If you going to the square I would reccomended this place. Only reservation was the fact that the cocktails were quite expensive.

Definitely it's in the main square so if you need a wifi connection or an expensive coffee you can get in this place as I did, nothing unusual and really little rock, as usually Hard Rock sucks as Kfc. Anyway they have a good motorbike hanged up ;-)

I have been to Krakow several times but this was the first visit to this particular Hard Rock Cafe. I was in a party of five, both eating and drinking, and we found everything just to our liking - perfectly cooked, reasonable prices, and very friendly and helpful staff. I will definitely go there every time I visit Krakow!
