We have visited many Hard Rock Cafes around the world. This one has a great location and nice views to the old square, but the prices are too high considering that in Krakow we got very good food in every single restaurant we stopped by - and the prices were quite moderate. I like that a little bit noisy HRC... More

Can't get auch better location than overlooking the town square, though the entrance through the gift shop is a bit awkward, with most non-bar seating on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Still, the staff is friendly, the food is what you expect, and there is skme memorabilia from some Polish bands. I knock 1 star off because there were some... More

This is a typical chain, the prices are exactly the same as the one in my home city which is ridiculous because krakow is so cheap. we went in with the intention of having a cocktail, saw the price and moved to a fancy bar 2 minutes down the road and had an excellent drink at half the cost. AVOID

Every time we go to a new city it is a must stop. We had a great seat by the window and could people watch!!! The local burger is always a fun to eat. Don't forget to collect your points and get a shirt!

Been to many hard rock cafes around the world this one has a great location right into the square. It's fairly expensive compared to other restaurants that we visited in Kraków and the staff pleasant although fairly slow service. The burgers and food was nice and it's easy to find.

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.
