Description: After a day of sunbathing and swimming or surfing in the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica, satisfy your hunger at Hard Rock Cafe San Jose. Our cafe is easy to find; just look for the giant Hard Rock Cafe guitar outside the building. We're located directly in front of Route 1, the most important highway in Costa Rica, across from the soon-to-be-completed Costa Rica Convention Center, and just 7 kilometers south of Juan Santamaria International Airport. Our location in the center of one of most important hotel districts of San Jose ensures quick and easy access to delicious food any time you desire. Hard Rock with Costa Rican Flair At our cafe in San Jose, you'll enjoy a classic Hard Rock experience with a little taste of Costa Rica. The capital of Costa Rica, San Jose is located in the middle of the Central Valley area, which is surrounded by lush, majestic mountains. You can see these beauties from any seat in our cafe, especially those near our 360-degree stage that "imitates" the surrounding area to offer a perfect view of the outside. For even better views of the mountains around our cafe, venture outside to our two large terraces, which feature fire pits for cool, windy nights. We also have an exclusive VIP room that can be used for corporate meetings and social celebrations with up to 60 people.

Hard Rock is a must visit for me in every city that has one. Love the clothes and in this particular case the Margherretta's were amazing and you had multiple choices of flavors. I tried the mango, and pineapple flavor (separately of course) and the Mango was amazing. The restaurant was half full and the service was slow, the food was pricey and the waulity was mediocre (hence the 3/5 rating). I would still recommend it as it is the Hard Rock, and if you are like me, it is a must see.

Otherwise do not be expecting local dishes and do not expect perfect culinary cuisine. It is what it is, and if you have eaten at the Hard Rock before then you know what you are expecting, decent to average on a sliding scale.

On the clothing, they had very little on the XL sizes, so if you are a big guy like me, not much will be fitting you, if not then you're lucky and I don't want to hear it.

Nothing special on food, I have eaten better in all other Hard Rock Cafe. And they did not have everything that was on the menu. Other than that, poor service, we had to ask for silverware, the waiter disappeared a couple of time we needed something, nothing for the kids (eg colours). I would not suggest it. I will not be back.

Every night there was different music. It is pretty small Hard Rock, but the tier seating gave everyone a view of the stage with live entertainment nightly. Food was typical Hard Rock food and was fine.

Called in for last supper as we have done in other cities after holibobs. Always good food, expect to pay the price for this venue but great table service and overall experience made better by local band setting up and allowing my son to play the drum kit and jam with the roadies who were setting up for bands evening performance.
Gracias amigos.
