    PerGaMin Music Bar

    A well situated, friendly and well priced bar / cafe. We used this a couple of times for breakfast, just for a change from our hotel. It is situated in a quiet street just off the main Market Square and markets itself as a "chill out music bar". It is loaded with comfy low-level leater sofas, modern design and for smokers also has an indoor smoking area that is closed off from the rest of the bar area. They do a choice of English, American and French Breakfasts, as well as Polish and is well priced at 18zloty each; about £3.50 a head. We had the English that consisted of toast, spicey sausages, bacon, choice of eggs and a side salad, along with juice and tea or coffee. It was fairly good, but sausages may be acquired taste for some.
    In the evenings it was always fairly busy, with the relaxing music advertised and drink at good prices. All in all, we would recommend it and definitely visit again.

    Favorite Dish: Only had the breakfast, but plenty to keep you going at a great price.

    Rooster: Food served by really nice waitresses

    by viledax Updated Sep 17, 2006

    This place serves mostly american food. Quantity is very alright, you'll be full with just a dish. Quality is normal, not the best.

    The best is the staff of the place. They just have waitresses, really nice ones. They go around with just a short and a top. Believe me you'll be nicely shocked!

    It's not a place to go everyday, but go to grab a beer and enjoy the view before going out!

    Roosters: The Sexiest Restaurant in town

    America has Hooters,Poland has Roosters.There is a lot of impressive things to say about this restaurant.firstly the decor is highly impressive,numerous tvs,a harley davidson motorbike and a vast amount of space.However having your food served by beautiful woman not wearing much is a added bonus.Not only that but the food is not as expensive as you would think.My two meals came to a grand total of about 18 zlotys.Thats about three pounds.So its cheap,fun and in the centre,cannot be better.

    Favorite Dish: The Chicken Breast is out of this world.Best meal i have ever ever had.

    Rooster: Very american, very cheap, very good

    by Bruxinha Written May 8, 2006

    When you're travelling for a long time on a low budget, getting to the east is almost always good news. The food is cheaper, the doses are bigger and you can eat decent meals (that is, no junk food) without getting broke.

    In 2003 I was interailing through Europe and arrived at Krakow after the very expensive Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin. I was craving a decent meal really bad. And here we found Rooster.
    It's a very american type place, with Route 66 signs, Harley stuff and serving babes in very short clothing. But you can get a decent meal, with a huge Coke, for about 4-5€.

    This was three years ago, so today it will certainly be pricier.

    Favorite Dish: I had Chicken breast with bacon - it came with a thick bacon slice, grilled, very thinly cut fries, salad, and three different sauces. It was very good!

    Rooster: Almost nude waitresses on Route 66

    by matcrazy1 Updated Oct 18, 2003

    They serve inexpensive Polish and American food - not great variety though - and beer. Open from 11am till midnight.
    Hmm... I was there a long time ago and I wasn't satisfied - the food was cheap (right) but not good: neither real American nor real Polish. But beer was excellent - look what beer locals order (it changes) and... follow them.

    I do hope - I am almost sure - it changed a lot for better. There is no place for bad restaurants (even if cheap) in Krakow's strict downtown nowadays.

    Now walking by a restaurant I always look inside through its windows and I see big painting on the wall: ROUTE 66 from 60' - famous American highway and surely legandary Harley-Davidson motorcycle and I see waitresses - Polish girls (almost nude but ... not the best choice hehe) and I think and dream about coming back to the USA hehe. Hmm... there are a lot of cigarette smoke and people mainly drinking beer inside. There is a smaller room for non-smoking as well now.

    Favorite Dish: None in middle 90'.
    Now I'd try STEK Z KARKOWKI: steak made of pig neck for 15.30 zl including salad and chips ( $4, 4.5 euros) + Polish beer.

    Other possibilities from my picture:
    Chicken salad - 8.90
    Spaghetti Bolognese - 11.50
    Shoarma (what's that???) made of chicken - 13.30

    $1 = 3.8
    1 Euro = 4.4
