While touring around Darling Harbour we decided to try the Hard Rock Café for lunch. As we had a fairly large group of people, consisting of 5 Adults and 2 kids, they needed a couple of minutes to set up a table for us but that was done really quickly. All the meal portions were really generous, including the kids... More

I like this place, it was in the center located at Harbor Bridge, very big place. The waitress I had was very nice. She was very sweet and helped me with the menu. I asked her to explain the dishes and she did it really well. I really like the food , dessert and cocktail. The best was the dessert,... More

In the past I have enjoyed the Mac, chicken and cheese. Tonight I did not enjoy the food. When telling the waiter about my disappointment she just said that the sauce on the chicken makes it burn a bit and said there is no problem. I'm not dumb I know when a piece of chicken is burnt or not. The... More

Had never tried this place and whilst visiting Sydney for work thought I would give it ago..... So disappointed!!! Had the burger which was just warm and despite asking for additional mushrooms wasn't able to work out if they were on the burger. My friend ordered a steak cooked medium that arrived rare and when indicating this to the waiter... More

$90 US dollars for two burgers and two lemonades (in souvenir glasses) but definitely very good food! Super friendly staff, a bit loud, fun.

Now we have been to several Hard Rock Cafe's in our adventures and even as a devout Sydneysider I would have to say that the Sydney version of the Hard Rock is the worst I have encountered. While we didn't have a problem with the service, the food was dreadful, zero taste & what appeared to be a much smaller... More

Called in here a few times. The location is great , the staff really friendly and the food and drink was spot one. I think the girls worked their way through the cocktail list more than once!!

It's hard rock so the menu is somewhat predictable. Wife says the berrilicious drink is nicer here... Less watery that other locations. Burgers and steak can't go wrong. Only sad thing is that the lacks that special draw of other HRCs that I've been too...maybe the construction beside it gives away an unfinished location. Also the shop seems to have... More
