Service was brilliant but the veggie options were very limited and 1 was unavailable, narrowing it down even less. The cocktails we initially wanted were also unavailable but the waitress advised us on others. We also didn’t realise that a ‘large’ cocktail meant we got the glasses, which is great but we can’t fit them in our luggage to fly home and it would’ve been good to know prior to upgrading.

Absolutely shocking and wouldn’t go back again. Salmon was over cooked, broccoli was not cooked properly and steak was tough, more fat than meat and it was really burnt on the outside and still rare in the middle when we asked for medium. We complained about the food and nothing was done and we still had to pay full amount

Menu far too limited. Food was way overpriced. I visit hard rocks all over the world but this one was really lacking it’s usual appeal. Very disappointed as the bill was quite high and we took friends and didn’t experience the usual Hard Rock Cafe culture.

Great venue with even better atmosphere! Has a fantastic variety of merchandise to view and good vibes with different genres of music playing throughout.

Only downside was the limited menu, however I expect this is due to the covid pandemic which is understandable.

Our server AJ was brilliant and couldn't fault him at all

Lovely servers ….steak salad wasn’t much of a salad lettuce (two types) tomato cut up and soaked in I think it was some kind of olive oil . Not worth the money to be honest wasn’t eaten . On the other hand my partner had the ribs amazing shared his meal instead 🙂.

Food was disappointing, lacked flavour, and very expensive for some things.
I thought the limited menu choices were poor, maybe this was just a Sunday menu?? Always loved the HRC and hadn’t been for a few years, and was so disappointed by the food, it used to be so much better! Service was great.

On comparison to other cities, we felt the menu offered less choice. A wee bit disappointed. Off what we did have, we thoroughly enjoyed it and our servers were fantastic. Would I return? Probably not. I would prefer to go to other cities with bigger menus.

We have been to several hard rock cafes and never been disappointed. This time we were there for my partners birthday we had to wait 20 minutes for drinks and had to order with 3 different servers before our drinks came. We were also left waiting 15 minutes for the bill at the end of our meal. Having said that the food was good.

Whilst the staff were lovely, we were given no time to digest the starters before the mains came out resulting us leaving most of it as too full to eat it.
