This familiar tourist-friendly franchise lives up to its name, bringing its Oktoberfest atmosphere to Kraków's Mały Rynek. At Bierhalle they brew their own, offering 3 different ales most commonly ordered by the litre, but you can also go gorilla with a 5l barrel, or walk the gastric tightrope of their beer cocktails. The beer-friendly franchise menu of German bratwurst, breaded cutlets and dumplings has been expanded and improved by star chef Kurt Scheller (and his stellar moustache), all while staying affordable, and open late as well. Serving breakfast, lunch sets and specials for only 20zł (served Mon-Fri 12:00 - 15:00), a helpful multi-lingual menu, nice service, and TVs streaming sports in every room make it a lads magnet, but we found Kraków's somewhat classy locale to be less rowdy and more refined than expected. This is one of those happy cases where success seems to have actually improved the brand.
