Thoroughly enjoyable quick meal

Having been to many hard rocks, including London, Paris and back home in Spain I didn't have much hope for eating here as other venues have been particularly disappointing. Very happy to say though surfers paradise seem to have it nailed. Being smack bang in the middle of Surfers you'd... read more

I came here on my first night i have set foot in Australia. I have heard about the hard rock cafe so I really wanted to go to one. I loved it. The experience, the atmosphere, the food and drinks were great. I even got a free cocktail glass which was cool to take home

Come here if your looking for great food cooked exceptionally well and service that never lets you down. Simple food done the way it should be. A special mention must go to lucey. She is a very talented and beautiful person who is a asset to that business. Can't go past the all you can eat ribs on Tuesday nights.... More

I've never been to a Hard Rock Cafe before, and always thought it would be a real experience. I was a little let down by my visit to this particular venue though. The staff were mostly friendly, though a couple had sour faces. There were a grand total of 2 choices for a vegetarian, but I'd come to expect this... More

I went her two nights in a row and it didn't disappoint. The food was to die for. We were told about a half hour wait and got given a free dessert of the day when we went upstairs we were given a seat straight away, no half hour wait for us. The waitresses were excellent, funny and came to... More

Great food and atmosphere! Only downside, one of our sides came out late, we were already half way through our main meals but the lovely staff took care of it for us and took it off our bill. Great place.

Took my grandchildren in for lunch one day and they were fascinated! I'm a baby boomer so it was perfect for me. Staff were friendly, welcoming and cheerful. Food was good and presented well.

Just chose Hard Rock for a dinner as we walked past, didn't have to wait for a table, lovely waitresses, very friendly, food was quick and we were well looked after... Would go back again.
