Unfortunately Hard Rock Nice let down the franchise - over 15 minute wait for server to take our order after being seated, even though there were only 3 other parties in the restaurant. Disappointing, given our previous experiences at other Hard Rock Cafes.

It was for my birthday and we booked it as being my birthday but nothing was done and it was kind of pointless but overall it was really good

The worst Hard Rock Cafe expérience of my life: the shrimp Caesar Salad was a joke and the service pitiful. We had to request 3 times a glass of water, which finally arrive at the end of the meal.
The cocktails had nothing to do with Hard Rock Cafe cocktails we are used to.

Not the best example of a Hard Rock Cafe. Quite small with not a lot of memorabilia; food was adequate but not quite to the standards we expect. Also, when taking my phone to validate a voucher the waiter almost dropped it (a new iPhone 11 Pro!) Still enjoyed it but not the experience we’re used to.

Very expensive compare to what you get
The Gluten-Free bun was dry and not tasty at all
The hamburger meat was dry
The broccoli was tasteless
The ribs where OK
Wine and beer are expensive without any proportions

This was our third visit to Hard Rock Nice. We took friends with us this time and none of us were disappointed.
The food was absolutely fabulous and the service was attentive but a little slow.
Overall we had a great time.

Not a typical Hard Rock Cafe, more a beach bar with Hard Rocks Menu. We only had a sharing starter as the chicken was very dry and the Bruchetta was lacking in any oil so very crumbly... not what we expect from Hard Rock. We have visited every Hard Rock Cafe in Europe and this is the worst. Will not be returning to Nice Hard Rock.

Considering last year was amazing when we dined here - this year for my daughters 18th there it was awful. No atmosphere- music rubbish and the main server was a nice girl but no banter which the boys had last year. The girls working there didn’t look happy and everything appeared a massive effort. Didn’t feel like a hard rock and certainly wont be returning sadly.

Ist eigentlich der Klassiker im Urlaub .
Es gibt aber schöner Hard Rock Cafés auf der Welt als das in Nizza obwohl die Lage nicht schlecht ist und das Essen auch sehr gut war. Schade das es leider etwas lieblos Gestaltet worden ist . Sonst war es eigentlich wie immer.

Overall enjoyable experience, probably a bit loud for some people. Staff is friendly but potentially overworked, so service isn't always very fast. My partner and I both got the Moving Mountains burger and really loved it. The nachos weren't very good, lacking in cheese and kind of broken up.

I had high expectations from Hard Rock Nice...
Service level was mediocre at best, no one check to see if all was well.
I ordered steak, which was cooked rare, that’s ok however I’d have preferred medium, I would have asked for more cooking had we been able to get a servers attention.
Starters were excellent, drinks as expected.
Overall, a disappointing experience...

Booked for our silver wedding anniversary which I mentioned when booking. We were put upstairs which seems to me to be an overflow room. We had a strange table up against a wall. Table was not set and when it was no sauces etc were on the table.
We then waited a while to order drinks. Then after this we ordered food. I asked for Nachos but was told there wasn’t any and there was no milkshakes. Nothing else as a starter what I liked apart from burger sliders but as I had ordered burger for main then couldn’t have that.
The server never asked if our main course was ok when we were eating and we were not asked if we wanted sauces etc.

The room upstairs has no ambience and completely spoiled our special night.
We have eaten at Hard Rock Orlando ,New York and Edinburgh. This was dreadful in comparison to these restaurants

For sure one of the worst HRC I’ve tried around the world. Asked for an high chair, they told me they were going to check if they had it but never came back. I had to go to pick it up by myself. Also asked 2 times for the ketchup. The menu has less choices than usual. It can be for sure improved

Es war alles top, außer der Preis. Hier stimmt das Verhältnis nicht, man hat eher das Gefühl die Promenade mitzubezahlen. Das Essen war super - keine Frage. Aber es war aufgrund der Zutaten nicht außergewöhnlich, was man anhand des Preises hätte vermuten können.
