Editor's review

A splendid fin-de-siecle building provides the home to this American styled restaurant. Here you'll find tasty portions of tucker for very reasonable prices, as well as a gaggle of smiling waitresses who are rather 'easy on the eye' as the expression goes. Contented looking fellows are often seen emerging from Rooster's doors after a hearty business lunch. Clearly they enjoyed their 'Farmer burger', washed down, no doubt, by a jar or two of Polish ale. Rooster has also proved something of a trusty place to kick off stag nights, the reasons for which we can't quite fathom.

I have eaten at Rooster in Krakow 7 or 8 times and at Rooster in Zacopane as well. The food in both restaurants was excellent, with a reasonably comprehensive menu. The scantily clad waitresses were not only stunning, but friendly and helpful as well. This is a business concept which works extremely well, perhaps not the place to take your lady for a romantic meal, but plenty of women dining in the restaurant seemed totally un- phased by the 'sex on a plate'nature of the restaurant! Already looking forward to my next visit!!

Cant believe the last 3 posts. This is a very clean place with excellent food and great service. I have been in this place loads and i have not had a rude waitress yet. And the food has always been amazing. And it is not too expensive.

I oredered a polish speciality called "golonko". It was awful, it' s a big piece of pork, tastes awfull and I almost through up when I bite a piece of frozen meat... minimum quality of food, rude waitresses but pretty.

Terrible place ! When i was in Cracow a few weeks ago i was trying to find place where I could eat something other than a kebab after 10pm . So I arrived at this nasty and dirty place, most of the customers were drunk . But the worst thing was the food, the waitress served food so disgusting, I couldn't eat it, so I left Rooster and i will never come back.

We had Salmon dish and spag bol and it was nice. Really packed which I think is a good sign that they sell good food.Service was good and was very good value for money... Would dine there again and the view while you are waiting for the food is quite enjoyable...

This place is great. The roosters burger is lovely and the soups are tasty too. The staff are friendly and the big screen was even on for footy. All in all a good night.

You seem to have forgotten that it was you who started with the insults aimed at British and Americans. "Heat things up", violent as well by the sounds of it.

Reply Apr 12th, 2010

That didn't make any sense. If you're trying to heat things up though, I'm still here:) But I suggest you stick to something you're good at, instead of pathetic attempts at insulting and/or trying to act adult. A rewiew, maybe, which this site is for:)

Re Sebastion, what are you going on about man, have you not got better things to complain about, very very sad man, as for a litre of beer they only sell half litres you fool, trying to big yourself up over beer, what a pathetic excuse you are.

Reply Apr 9th, 2010

First of all I have to say it's funny with the americans and some british here who rate it bad. Why? Because they ordered a burger they didn't like. A BURGER. On a restaurant. A CHICKEN oriented restaurant. I had to laugh out loud^^ If you want a real burger, go to a STEAK house, or put out the bbq yourself! :D You don't go to a restaurant just to buy junk food! Jesus..

About the food: I ordered the Rooster platter and it was HUGE. I ate it all. Alongside a litre (yes that's about the size of those mugs) of beer and a tasty vodka shot. Yes I am fit. It was one og my best meals all time! Maybe I was lucky? Or maybe I was not stupid enough to order junk food at a restaurant, but rather one of their specialties.

The service was good. I never got to feel I was waiting for the food to arrive, and I was very(!) hungry. Maybe one of the reasons I ate it all.(trust me those portions are enormous). The service didn't have to be good though. Not as long as the staff continue to have the equipment and facade for that outfit...

PS: drunk brits: Being the best drinkers in the world(in foreign countries) doesn't make you more charming.. Just a tip based on experience;)

Some guide recomended the burger here. I don't! It tasted like it was pre-cooked and re-heated in microwave. Sauces was not freshly made in restaurant.

An obvious knockoff from the famed Hooters restaurant chains in the US. The ladies were very nice looking and thin, which is true for a good portion of Poland. The food was problematic but most people go to this place to check out hot girls in hotpants, not to eat quality food. The English menu states something like, "Service is NOT included in the price".

Agree with the previous poster - the food really needs improving. Friendly service, pretty girls etc etc and they can't really cock up the beer but the chicken and burgers are pretty tasteless and dry.

Sat down and read the menu in Polish, checked out the prices which were very reasonable, then the waitress came along and give us menu's in English. Everything had gone up in price! Being charged extra just because you are British didn't make me feel good so i left!!

The waitresses were nice (my wife told me to put my eyes back in and one point!), but quite frankly the farmer burger I ordered tasted more of 'farmer' than 'burger'. But at those prices I was not expecting the Hard Rock Cafe.

My wife and like it because of the food, The fast service and you can have a meal two for about 83 zloty (not bad). After a visit to Rooster we're all ways stuffed. The only bad thing is the girls have to put up with comments from stupid english guys. However zapiekanka rocks you can get in kazimierz best in the world and its less than 4 zloty. I love you Domi

The only place in Poland that i have found that does ribs (very good). But it's speciality is chicken oh and the waitress' of course. If you are scared of polish cuisine this is the place to hang out, specially in the summer with the roof terrace.

Had a cheeseburger here, was a bit like spicy kebab meat pressed into a patty, had a rubbery feel to it. Tasted good in the way kebab-flavored chewing gum would taste good. The fries are thin-sliced, mickey D style, but tasted like they'd been sitting for a bit. The waitresses are overly tan but not overly friendly, which makes it halfway as annoying as its cousin in the States, Hooters. There are American license plates on the wall, roadhouse feel. If you must go, don't ogle, and get chicken instead of beef.

In my search for a good burger in Krakow, I visited Roosters with a couple of friends. Unfortunately, a good burger I did not find. Otherwise, the rest of the food was pretty good, the service ok. Be sure to check out the rooftop patio on warm days.

Reply Jun 25th, 2005

They have,probably, the best salads in the whole Cracow.I highly recommend "grilled chicken salad". The dishes are HUGE!( Maybe because it is American-like place).

For those who like to eat in Sphinx I suggest to change the place for Rooster.U won't regret!:)

I've been there several time during my trips to Krakow, andI think it's an excellent place! The food is great, better than many other places, and (of course) the service is almost perfect (and....nice to see). There is also a summer terrace on the higher floor, what else can you desire?
