    Had an early evening meal here prior to the Edinburgh Tattoo. It was busy but didn’t feel crowed. I love the music but it was a bit loud so you can’t hear each other! The food was lovely even a bit large, apart from the Messi burger! This did not match up to the photo I think it’s a bit disappointing to be honest. And £2 for an egg! That would make it £12 for half a dozen 😂 Outrageously expensive. The food is always served quickly and the staff are great.

    Good food but husband thought his burgers could have been a bit bigger. My fried chicken sandwich was very tasty as were our order of onion rings. Enjoyed the cocktails, especially the purple haze. They need a passion fruit martini on the menu though. Good experience so will be back.

    Great visit to HRC Edinburgh today. Lovely woman at the front door changed our booking to get us in a wee bit early. :-) Our waiter, John, was great and the food was lovely. Was also great to be able to hear the music but not be shouting over it. Lovely visit.

    Delightful and attentive staff. Well presented and excellent tasting food with decent size portions. Ambiance novel and exhilarating. My ten year old loved it but didn’t recognise any of the artists pictures. Dad knew them all and was in his element. Overall a lovely family experience.

    At our booking we specified one Vegan, and upon entering the café we were told of where to find the Vegan options. Prior to booking we checked the Hard Rock café online menu to see if there were Vegan options and the online menu indicated there was. Our main meal was excellent, burgers 3 meat 1 vegan. No complaints there. When we asked for the dessert menu and what the Vegan options were, the reply was we might have some vegan ice cream, that was not the case, there were no Vegan options. What could have been a great dining experience, was not, as it was let down with no Vegan desserts. Its 2022 not 2002 and we would have expected Hard Rock café to cater for all dietary requirements. In essence if you are looking for a posh McDonald's then Hard Rock café is for you, however if you are after a complete meal then I would suggest you go elsewhere.

    Really nice atmosphere, very busy and also live music which was great. Not a quiet place for a meal but the clues in the name. Not overpowering sound level but pretty loud. Food was pretty good , & service was really good. All in all a good night .

    The restaurant was overcrowded despite the fact there was a whole section empty hidden behind a curtain. The order was wrong when it came. The music was too loud so we couldn't hear what the waitress was saying. There was no attention to detail - it was our little boys 10th birthday which I had mentioned 3 times - on booking, upon entry and also to the waitress who took us to our table. Yet no one even wished him a happy birthday. The only good point is that the food was nice
