Located right in the Catalunya square, this was a great place to have some fun. I'd ever been to a Hard Rock cafe before but I found the experience really enjoyable.

TravelinAlan has some credibility, having eaten at Hard Rock Cafes on 6 continents. Even though it was very crowded, I was told it is the 3rd busiest Hard Rock Café in the world and busiest in Europe, I did not feel ignored. In fact, my server, Samule, was very attentive, even though he was very busy. The Legendary burger is... More

I do not travel out of the USA without going to a Hard Rock Cafe if there is one. As always the food was great in Barcelona. So wonderful when you know you can count on great food at every Hard Rock and this one did not disappoint. Burger-Burger-Burger is always a great choice.

Yummy food as usual!! I cannot visit a city without visiting the local Hard Rock Cafe. Very busy, but the line moves quickly.

First of I have to say that I have always been a fan of the HRC brand and have previously visited HRCs in Paris, NYC, Rome, London and San Francisco. I was looking forward to adding Barcelona to that list. We arrived at about 5:00pm on a Monday evening and were told that we would have to wait about 50... More

Great atmosphere! We didn't have time for a meal as the wait was 45mins and we had many, many more things to see in Barcelona. We did however have time for a quick drink at the bar and a look around the shop. The staff were great at the bar and very helpful in the shop. They quickly printed out... More

I am currently in Spain on a family holiday and visited Barcelona today with my mother. After nagging her about going to the Hard Rock Cafe (as I love the restaurant and try to visit as many globally as I can manage.. I also collect the t-shirts), she agreed and we visited earlier this afternoon. The first thing we noticed... More

I enjoyed this Hard Rock Café. It is well located in Barcelona on Plaza Catalunya. So if you're shopping down Ramblas or finished wandering the Gothic Quarters, then you might consider a relatively fast lunch here--and a menu that may be more recognizable to American travelers, like myself. By all means, explore the local cuisine in Spain! However, for me,... More

I'll admit I violated my own cardinal rule when I went to the Hard Rock Café. I never go to American chains when I travel abroad. It violates everything I believe in about the negative influences of American culture. I always try to embrace local restaurants and business. But in Barcelona it can be hard to find a good spot...

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
