Food was good but just going cold when served.
Service was a little slow for drinks and lacked atmosphere compared to other hard rock cafes we’ve visited.

Food was amazing... only fault was that waiter got our meal order mixed up and had to wait for my meal to come whilst my partner ate his. But staff were very apologetic and gave us free drink for trouble.

Poor food quality, typical chain food. Tables were so close you’d certainly have made some friends. So don’t go for a romantic date. Food was cold and over all it’s over rated and expensive.

It took an hour for food to arrive, and when did arrive the food wasn’t piping hot, we fell like steaks from Wetherspoon are better quality :( witch is sad paying 100£ bill
The only positive aspect was the waitress being very nice professional and apologetic.

Waiter was a bit rude and cheeky. She also assumed that we were leaving 15€ as a tip as she didn’t return and was laughing with colleagues. We had to ask for the change and she wasn’t happy and slammed the book on the table b

Disappointed in this experience....the only bright spot was that the food was tasty. The staff was rude, especially the host/hostess and it was probably because the restaurant was very busy. However, this is not the fault of the customer, so it would have been nice if they hadn't acted as if us coming to the restaurant was an inconvenience. With the restaurant being packed, it was noisy and crowded. Tables and chairs were placed very close together, so you didn't have much room to get in and out of your seat. The wait staff seemed very overwhelmed because again, the restaurant was so busy. Our server was friendly, and she did her best with our table. I just felt bad for her as she was pulled in so many directions. The food was good, and it did come out somewhat quickly. We did have to send one drink back because what was ordered was a frozen drink but sadly it came out melted. The staff was friendly and apologetic about the drink and took it off the check. Again, I want to stress the food was good and we enjoyed our meals very much. I just wish the atmosphere would have been a little more friendly.

On that evening the waiter was the star, I think his name was as Akor or something.
He was so attentive friendly helpful informative and quick.
The chair was dirty I cleaned it myself. The place is tiny and tables were very close to each other.
Food was not super, not flavorful, broccoli was not available, and substituted with other cheaper veggies 😂 carrots beans and cornflower 😖 which I don't eat.
And when reading online reviews about the same dish I ordered, I noticed that all uploaded photos also included other vegetables than broccoli 🤔.
I wouldn't recommend the hurricane drink.
This is the first and the last time I order it.
I didn't like the whole ambience it is not as fun and cheerful as the Dubai's or Phoket's branchs.
The girl at the entrance was super kind and professional and all in all hard rock cafe's staff are better than all other Dutch restaurants' staff I've ever been to.
It's so obvious that the training they get is excellent and professional.
In short I would definitely visit again although the food wasn't super duper but I enjoyed it more than any other restaurant I went to in Netherlands 😞.

Interesting for a visit and food ok but felt a bit rushed. Also, we had a reservation but were a little early so explained to the staff who said it was no problem then received and email off opentable later in the evening to say we hadn’t shown up for our reservation and explaining the issues our ‘no show’ causes fir the restaurant!! I’d not go back as I felt the staff rushed us

Food wasnt great, had nachos that was covered in kindney beans despite this not being on the menu. Burger was very uncooked on my main, got it re made but of course the rest of my group had now finished and the moment had kinda gone. The service wasnt bad the staff at front of house seem to try their best. Could of been better overall, i wouldn't hurry back unfortunately

Me and my girlfriend loved the amount of food we received on both our plates, I had chicken fajitas and she had the mac & cheese. The quality of the food was second to none. This is my third time visiting a Hard Rock Cafe, once here before and in Barcelona. I would recommend it to anyone. A++++

To be honest our experience here wasn’t great. There was no conversation from our server, food wasn’t the best - and one of the guys kept walking into my chair (no apology) even though we tried moving the table every time he did it! For a birthday meal, we really weren’t blown over, just put a downer on it!

Me and my partner came to the Hard Rock Cafe during our weekend away for lunch where we decided to book a table to ensure we would get a seat. We both chose to have a Texan sandwich which turned out to be the best food we had ever eaten, we also asked for some extra BBQ sauce and when it came it was warm, making it 100% nicer than usual. 11/10 would come back again just for the BBQ sauce!

Burgers were amazing but we were half way through our starter when they came. The table wasn’t big enough for the nachos and the burgers so the server physically moved everything round for them to fit. Felt a bit rushed but it was was the best burger we’d had in a while
