Just like home.

After being on a med cruise for 8 days, I was craving some good, ole American BBQ. The ribs at Hard Rock really hit the spot. We waited in line Linea little while so we could sit outside and enjoy the weayher/night life and it was worth it. Afterwards, we went inside to shop for souvenirs.

Don't get me wrong - the food when it arrives is fine - classic hickory smoked bacon/cheeseburger with fries but it is just the end of a long and not too pleasant process. Front of house are friendly as they hand you the pager and tell you it's a 30 minute wait for a table. So we fight our way... More

Hard Rock has a special going for burgers from around the world. I had the Java Lava and it was great! It was right up there with Amsterdam's local burger. This restaurant has two levels and lots of seating but it's busy so expect at least a small 15-20 min wait.

Sorry we ducked into the Hard Rock Cafe in Barcelona. Worst meal we had in 10 day tour. My wife's chicken sandwich had to go back as it was impossible to eat. Over-cooked and hard. The staff was friendly and exchanged her meal but wound not recommend this place again.

Popped in for a drink, ended up staying for several and then dinner. Food was lovely and tasty, just what you need after a few days of tapas. Cocktails were fab as were the staff. Such a great atomosphere in the bar. Very busy but not packed in like sardines. Would visit again.
