Hard rock a firm favourite of my daughters. Eaten here many times. The service was very good, as always, but the menu was limited. We ordered nachos which we were told wouldn’t have exactly the same cheese sauce. There was almost no cheese and a very poor substitute of a kind of bland cream ruined the nachos for us. The chicken tenders were ok but really not worth the price tag. Disappointing overpriced food sadly means we will not be returning.

It was Ok! Was expecting it to be a bit more of a wow factor and an experience but just a standard american food joint which is fairly expensive! Food was good though just pricey for what it was.

Booked a table with special request but The girl to door didn't care about our request. After that the staff was rude with us. Never come back there i said to all my friends about this girl.

I booked a table for 4 at the Edinburgh Hard Rock Cafe as a treat for my husbands birthday. I had been to a hard rock years ago and hadn’t been impressed with the atmosphere I felt that it was too hot, too crowded and too loud. I wasn’t too sure what to expect but I’m happy to say that my experience was completely different this time around.
We were greeted by a very lovely lady who took our temperature and asked us to sanitise our hands, she then explained about wearing our masks around the restaurant and then took us to our table.
My party and I felt completely safe and felt that there was no one sat too closely to us, the music was on but we could still have a conversation without having to scream to the person sitting next to us. And due to fewer people being crammed in it wasn’t too hot either, overall my party and I were extremely pleased with the overall environment.
The food was outstanding, and was brought to us very quickly, there were no complaints at all from us.
The only thing that we weren’t too happy with was our server questioning us about looking over the bill thoroughly.
Overall I would definitely recommend the Hard Rock Cafe we felt safe, the atmosphere was nice, the food was outstanding and other than the server at the end the staff where fabulous and friendly too.

HRC is a must!
Delicious nachos, that always hit the spot, followed by Mac and cheese and chicken strips which were also Delish.
We tried some cocktails and wine and the special blue Hawaiian cocktail which was also delicious.
Great service from start to finish and safety first throughout!

Can’t review HR Edinburgh high enough. From our friendly welcome and temperature checks, through to arguably the best customer service I have ever received from a young lady called Basia who was simply outstanding. We have a 3 year old boy Rory, and Basia was amazing with him. He absolutely loved in meal out. Food as always was of a very High standard.
5 stars from us!

Food was excellent and great value, also the staff especially manager Ross were very helpful when we explained that one of us had a shellfish allergy he came over and explained the dish that was chosen was fried in the same vat as shellfish and sorted another dish to suit.

Twisted Mac, chicken and cheese is out of this world, topped off with a strawberry and basil lemonade, perfect. No trip to Edinburgh is complete without dinner at the hard rock.

The staff were fab and made sure we had the best meal possible, my husband has allergies and the manager came and made sure that his allergies were taken seriously and tailored the menu so he could have the meal he wanted without it affecting him. The food was absolutely amazing I would definitely recommended the festival menu and the sharers

First time we had been to a Hard Rock cafe and teenage son loved that we were put at table with guitar from The Who! Food was great, music very quietly playing in background, as expected in these crazy times.
