Staff were very friendly and food was amazing! Unfortunately the lift was out and we had to carry a 2 seater pram up a very long flight of stairs! They also had no high chairs available but it was a busy night.

When going into Hard Rock Café in Surfers Paradise make sure you ask for Barry!! The customer service that was given to my friends and I from Barry was amazing. He is such a happy and cheerful person, and nothing was too much for him. Thanks Barry for making our night wonderful.

We had a great lunch on the balcony. A few cocktails & a main meal each. The price was fair for the delicious, large servings of food and our waiter Dan was really friendly.
