Amazing food and quick considering it was a full house!!

We were unlucky that after waiting 20 minutes for a table, that another table of 26 had just ordered in front of us. HOWEVER, it was surprisingly quick to receive our food! & it was still delicious! Would go back again!

At first my friend and I went to the Hard Rock Shop below the cafe to buy some souvenirs. The staff at the shop was very friendly. I would give him 5/5 for his good service. After purchasing, we went up to have our dinner. We were greeted well and got our seats immediately. However, when I was trying to... More

Visited on Saturday night for a family weekend. Luckily we arrived early as they were very busy, but they seemed to move the crowd through fairly quickly. Our waitress seemed new or distracted and wasn't very familiar with the menu and gave wrong info a couple of times, and was not attentive when taking our order. Meals were nice, and... More

Went there on Saturday night while visiting for 'Vivid'. Normally LOVE listening to music, especially while dining. However, it far too loud, making conversation, near on impossible. Diners were nice & tasty, particularly the adults meals. The children's meals (fish) were chewy and lacked any flavour, AND therefore, not eaten. Desserts were huge & well presented but not as nice... More

We went to Hard Rock cafe for dinner. First off, more than half the cafe was empty and yet they said we had to wait for at least 30-40 minutes to be seated. If we had to be seated outside facing the harbour, it would take 2 hours! They seemed terribly understaffed. After 10 minutes my wife went to inform... More

My brother and I visited on a Sunday evening to experience the World Burger Tour. On arrival it was evident that it was a busy night, with not only lots of guests, but a function taking place. Nevertheless, the wait time was reasonable and the staff - particularly our amazing server Tres - went out of their way to ensure... More

menu did not say anything about a Sunday surcharge. Also waited 30-40 min for brunch. The food was no longer warm when served and not feel cooked, and turned out we had the wrong brunch plate when we though about later in the evening. Also had to wait a long time for the check. Completely disappointed for Hard Rock standard

The location is perfect ... it is just right on the harbour where you can have drinks or meals with a view of boats or even see the fireworks on Saturday night ... definitely a nice place to hang out ..
