We ate here early one evening and the place was empty. The staff were friendly and polite. The food is the usual Hard Rock fare. The restaurant is in a small mall, just off the main shopping/clubbing area.

Good food, consistent with other HRC's, not superb service but it was decent, GREAT view and patio area, pricey which is also consistent with other HRC's but overall good place to eat in Cancun if you want American food/something familiar.

Visited her with 6 friends for my sisters birthday. Air con was broke but the dining area was breezy anyway, so wasn't a problem, staff very friendly, food delish (huge portions) They had a heavy metal band on when we arrived, and they was great!

The hard rock is known all over the world. People love to go there just to say they have been and buy the hard rock tee shirts. There is all kinds of music memorbilia. They play all types of rock n roll and it is very loud. The food is ok...just so so...Its more the atmosphere that is good here.

I always try and find a Hard Rock Cafe on my travels but got to say this one not on the same level as all the others. Nachos were nice as always however my rib eye steak not a patch on all the others I've visited. Seemed really thin and light in colour and not as juicy also I've never... More

We had dinner here with my friends during our last night in Cancun, before heading out to party. The music was great and the food was delicious.

nice location, good food, but over price in dollar value. 10 to 15 % tip of the total bill for service if not they get offended. ASK FOR YOU BILL IN PESOS, PAY WITH CREDIT CARD OR BANK CARD AND SAVE.

My husband and I started visiting HRC's back in college and every time we are in a new city with a HRC we have to go for nachos and a shot in a souvenir shot glass! The Cancun HRC had a great deck that we sat out on (a little windy) and we went around 6pm on a Monday night... More

A resort town basically carved out of pure jungle, Cancun was nothing but birds and iguanas as recently as 1974, when development began. Set upon the Yucatán Peninsula, the city is thronged by famous ruins: centuries-old pyramids, temples of the ancient Mayans, travelers who didn't get to the Hard Rock Cafe in time. Just kidding! But you will be sorry if you miss us. Nightlife options are plentiful here, with everything to amuse from sports to gambling bars to romantic piano bars. Trust us 'cause we've already scouted it all out. By far the best choice is your resident expert on having a good time, yours truly, the Hard Rock Cafe Cancun. So after you've hiked through the exotic jungles and explored the ruins, get ready to uncover the real treasure, our Cancun Cafe! You'll find a valuable rock 'n' roll memorabilia collection at our exclusive restaurant, plus an incredible and unmatched expansive ocean view. Dig in and treat yourself to a delicious lunch or dinner!
