It took two trips to actually get to the restaurant as the first time I attempted to go the restaurant was close for a private party even though they do have a section for private parties. Anyhow, on my second attempt it was well worth it, the food was great, the staff were brilliant.

Great usual service and food as expected at the Hard Rock Café. All four of us enjoyed the meal and great to see free refills available for soft drinks. Location is good and ample space for many visitors. We went on a Friday at around 6pm and there was lots of table available. Recomended.

We returned after a year. All is still good. The vibe is chaotic, rock-type excitement. The environment somehow copes with drinkers, abstainers, adult parties and families with the youngest of kids. The food portions are plentiful and serving staff attentive. The house band 'The Distillers' are a tight unit that provide well performed covers from Kings of Lyon to Ed... More

just a short taxi drive from the airport, so it's a great place to go to for a meal if you have 3 hours in between connecting flights, great decor, plenty of space for lots of people, all the usual great things in one place

Although HRC is normally a place for rock music and live performance, during the day time they prepare specials activities for the little ones which allow my wife and me to enjoy the signature NY steaks and house drinks.
