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.

You can't fault the consistency of the brand but once inside, you could be anywhere. The food, the service and even the music were as corporate as you'd expect but it still lacked a sense of identity. Whilst this may be exactly the point for some, we'd rather experience the local difference when visiting other cities across the world. We... More

Service was really good for a lone traveller, I got excellent table by the window. Rather quick turnaround time to get the food. Nice place. Expensive beer, but you don't come here for that .

Seated at our table - menu as expected Extortionate prices to say the least - likely as in main square although other restaurants don't seem to exploit the tourists quite like this. We left 😯

Have personally never been a fan of the menu at hard rock but friends have convinced me over the years. We entered to the bar greeted by the gift shop and saw all the rock memorabilia. We were seated and started ordering cocktails straight away. The food was good I'd say but still not convinced for some reason. The atmosphere... More
