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.

I'm a serious Hard Rock fan! I've been to many cafes, and the food is always good! The service is good too, but the service I had in Krakow was outstanding! My server, Kinio, was very friendly and also very helpful in suggesting delicious drink choices. If you go there, I hope your server is Kinio...he's such a nice guy!!

The food was great but the place itself was a little dull compared to the other HRC's I've been to. Poor selection of memorabilia and the whole place was really small. Didn't have to wait for a table though which was nice.

We enjoyed a one night return to American food at HRC in Krakow. The food was the usual HRC quality and the location right on the town square is great.

we had just arrived and were a little tired and just wanted a quick meal-we spotted the hard rock cafe from across the square and decided to try it. A lovely warm welcome,the staff were genuinely friendly. The views are amazing, and the food was first class. Well worth a visit.
