Another Great Experience

As I travel, I collect shot glasses from each location. Stopped for drinks. The staff were extra nice, friendly AND BILINGUAL! IF you're Spanish isn't as good as mine, they can still assist you and do it well. Great strong drinks, and great atmosphere. I believe this is one of the HRL locations... read more

We enjoyed a good meal in this restaurant with food up to the usual Hard Rock standard. The restaurant had no record of our booking but found us a good table with a window view which was great for watching the busy world go by outside!

A great experience overall. Quite expensive compared to most places in Madrid, but good service, a good amount of food and good quality food. If you like classic rock, this is the place for you.

We had lunch here because they had an offer available with the Madrid tourist card: 20 euros for a complete menu(starter+main course+drink+ desert). The athmosphere is the same as the one in any Hard Rock Restaurant from else where in the world (meaning great). The service was great, the food also (very large portions). So, if you are close to...

Portions are huge and way too much. Service unfortunately wasn't too much, just opposite actually. Waitress was trying to be friendly but didn't know the difference between appetizers and main course. The music was incredibly loud and really made dining into an annoyance. Food was standard hard rock/tgif kinda food.

This Hard Rock was absolutely huge and quite busy, nevertheless we didn't wait long to be seated, thanks to our VIP Membership Card (circa 10 mins). The service was good, a little bit slow but attentive, exception made for a waiter that looked at me very badly when I politely asked him in English to refill my coke. I don't... More

I was here on the feast of the immaculate conception, a public holiday, so it was heaving. The servers were excellent and of the standard you expect at a hard rock cafe.

Eat here recently while on business trip to madrid. It does exactly what it says on the tin ...... Good basic food with helpful staff (my waitress spoke excellent English) which are attentive with great music and noisy atmosphere. Even though I was travelling on my own I didn't feel alone at the HRC

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighborhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
