Pimiento Argentino Grill likes to boast that they have the best steaks in town. A bold claim indeed, but Pimiento don't do things by halves and import the best quality beef straight in from Argentina, guaranteeing a taste you won't find anywhere else in Krakow. Cynics will be pleased to discover that the restaurant's kitchen partly opens into the dining room, so you can watch as the cooks grill and prepare those prime slabs of meat right before your eyes! Also housed in the restaurant's cozy interior are a wide variety of new world wines from Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, providing the perfect compliment to any meal.

We were in Krakow for tattoofest and somebody we met at the convention recommended Pimiento, when we entered the restaurant we were greeted quite coldly by a waiter, (due i think to my wife and i being heavily tattooed)the food was great and the service was good, the waiter seemed to warm to us when he realised we were not trouble makers. i would eat there again!..: )
Undeniably best steak we've ever eaten, and being from Texas, we've eaten a lot of beef. Plus, the service was second to none.
I think the very few negative reviews given here should be ignored. Everyone has an off day, and maybe they visited that day. Our food came quickly, the server's suggestions were spot on, and we could not have had a better 35th Anniversary dinner. Thanks.
This used to be the Orient Express restaurant, which was good, so when it metamorphosed into Pimiento I was keen to try it and wasn't disappointed. Clearly you come here for steaks not fish and chips, and the steak was excellent as was the chilli soup starter (although it's not a soup at all but a bowl of chilli). My only gripe was the clientele who were generally very loud and oikish. One Scots woman clearly had too much to drink (the great wine list was probably her downfall) and I imagine could be heard in her native Glasgow. That said it was busy, bustling and great to people-watch.
Just arrived back from Krakow. After a really bad meal the first night we really needed something good to eat. Pimiento did not let us down. There were 8 of us and we all had fab starters and really tasty main courses. Pablo (Paul) and the rest of the staff made us feel so welcome. Its hard to find a really good meal in Krakow but here you wouldnt be disappointed
I was at Krakow with my husband the last weekend in september, I made a reservation at this restaurant, and in the occasion of my husbands birthday , i asked for a surprise for dessert after dinner.It was not easy o find the restaurant from where we started, but the manager called me and helped us find the correct direction. It was a perfect place for a perfect romantic dinner and for a perfect Sirloin .. the evening was perfect.. the service the wine and of course the delicious cake made for us for dessert .. so I will highly recomend this restaurant , best meal in Krakow.. thank you Pawel.
TOGETHER WITH MY BOYFRIEND I WENT TO MANY RESTAURANTS IN KRAKOW LAST SEPTEMBER, ALL AROUND MAIN SQERE-WAIST OF TIME AND MONEY COS THEY ARE OVERPRICED AND POORE QUALITY FOOD IS SERVED THERE. ONLY NICE PLACE WE FOUND IS THIS RESTAURANT- PIMIENTO ARGENTINO GRIL, MAY BE A LITTLE PRICY, BT I DONT MIND PAY FOR QUALITY, GOOD STEAK, HOT PLATE( FUNNY ENOUGH IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND PLACE IN KRAKOW SERVING FOOD ON HOT PLATES), GOOD SELECTION OF WINES, VERY GOOD SERVICE(THAT IS ALSO DIFFICULT TO GET IN KRAKOW. GOOD NIGHT OUT, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE.
I'm little bit disappointed according to what I expected from this place. First of all is too expensive. And it's not the issue I can't afford to this level of restaurant, but it is just not worth for what you get. Second reason is food - it's not so good. I expected something really delicious for that money. I have visited several good steak places all over the Europe, and to be honest this one will close the ranking. I took kind of meat mixture from various part and everything tasted exactly the same.
And the most important think, if you will anyhow decide to go there - never, ever take squid as a starter - they have no bloody idea how to prepare it.
Brilliant - quite well hidden in Kaziemerz but a great find when you happen across it. Just missed Liverpool Dave by a day - we were there 21/09. Cant remember the price but it wasn't dear by any means - the 4 of us had steaks, beer, wine and we didn't burst the bank. The steaks were at least equal to anything I've had before - most enjoyable (I asked for rare and the waitress seemed to be taken aback by this) Satff were extremely friendly - Cant get over the diffrenec between Polish staff in culinary business and that of the UK - no wonder they get all the jobs.
