I have visited and etten in many HRC's around the world: Copenhagen, Orlando, Rome, London, New York, Honolulu...just to mention about half of the all. I understand the popularity of the restaurant chain and the pressures for the staff. But still, Barcelona has thusfar been only place where potential paying customers were treated as kettle.

Nice place, very crowded. Easy to reach. The prices was normal. The people and the service was verry good; Hard Rock Caffe style.

Love Hard Rock. Should have gone to McDonalds and just bought the T-shirt here! Really slow to be seated, hopeless food quality and very over stretched staff. My sandwich was preferable to leave than eat and as a real gauge - it was probably something I could have made myself. Always a bad sign. Hope they get better with time... More

Stake was hard to consume, perhaps this is not their specialisation. Everything else was as expected.

I've been lucky enough to visit HRC's in various party of the world and I've yet to be disappointed at either the friendliness of the service, the quality (or quantity) of the food or the different rock memorabilia on show. Excellent way to finish off a long day of sight seeing :)

I've visited dozens of HR all over the world and I don't think I've had food so bland as here. The food was poor. We had the RibEye - Medium. It had no taste whatsoever! The pulled pork was dry and tasteless and had no sauce. The same with the pulled chicken. As a Hard Rock VIP we got seated... More

I'm a bit of a fan of HRC and although it's always a pain to get a table the service and food is always excellent. All to the accompaniment of good old fashioned rock music, who could ask for more? I introduced my two lady guests from Ukraine to BBQ ribs at the HRC in London and they always order... More

After a few days and nights in Spain, Sherri said that she was tired of tapas and ready for some USA food. After a one mile stroll on the La Rambla and getting past thousands of soccer fans we did arrive at the Hard Rock. My review is 5 stars for the staff. English was not a problem. When I... More
