Description: Berlin’s Hard Rock Café in the Kunsterdamm is right in the heart of beer halls, coffee houses, theatres and lots of over kinds of entertainment and night life. With Hard Rocks, you know the drill: great American food, ridiculously quaffable cocktails, awe-inspiring rock memorabilia and rock’n’roll pounding over the amps. Tuesday night is usually karaoke night, so that’s a don’t-miss. But have we mentioned the licensing laws? Berlin has no officials closing hours, so just when the rest of Europe is going nighty-night, this city is getting revved up and the Hard Rock Café is right in the midst of the action. Food includes sharable nachos, several kinds of barbecue, Texas chilli, brilliant burgers, salads, fajitas, steaks and pastas, and child-silencing desserts. Memorabilia includes Elvis’s GI Blues uniform and Madonna’s bra. For special events, there’s a VIP function room, Hard Rock Guitar Bar, the main Dining Room and the entire venue with audio visual equipment and a plethora of menus from breakfast until late.

“Hard Rock good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We've been to a few Hard Rock cafes and this Hard Rock is just as good. We made reservations before we went. Plenty of seating and good Hard Rock atmosphere. We knew what we wanted to order and food came quickly and good quality like all hard rock food.
Staff were friendly keeping up the hard rock standard.

Dear Battygirl53,
great tip on the afternoon seating! Next time you visit a Hard Rock, you can go online and have your name added to the PX list, which will give you first available seating.
Greetings

“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

This was our first hard rock experience and it was great! The legend burger was soooo good! There was no wait on a Friday afternoon so we were happy. Our waiter was polite and professional.

Dear Kitay,
I am glad we could turn your first Hard Rock visit in a memorable one!
Make sure you come back and try some of our other burgers too - the California Burger is my personal favourite!
Have a great weekend

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We were told we would have to wait 40 mins for a table but it wasn't anywhere near that long a bonus. The lady serving behind the bar was great very friendly and entertaining! The waiter was very friendly and the meal was served fairly quickly. The food was excellent, I had salmon really nice! The atmosphere was good. The only down side was we had to search out a waiter to order deserts and to ask for the bill, I realise people like some time in between course but I feel the waiter should come back and check once the main was served that everything was ok and if we needed anything rather than us seek him out, but that is a very minor point because all staff were very friendly apart from that minor thing.

“Great service, great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

You can always rely on the HRC for high standards when it comes to food and service and Berlin is no exception. I have to say it did lack atmosphere in comparison to most I've visited (approx 30 world wide) and given the size of the venue I felt it had more potential. Having said that the upstairs did host an area for bands to play live and it was a shame our visit didn't coincide with a live gig as I think this would have made a difference. Overall it's still a good place to eat and I would go back.

“Not up to the usual HRC standard.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

You don't go to a Hard Rock Cafe for top-notch food, but for a decent burger at a decent price and great atmosphere.

HRC Berlin delivers good food at a good price but the downstairs bar (I didn't go upstairs so can't comment) lacks the usual HRC atmosphere.

In addition, and despite the restaurant being relatively quiet when we went, the service was sadly lacking and we regularly had to search-out our waitress to order the next course or ask for the bill.

Dear Neil A,
thanks for your feedback. I am sorry the service was not to your satisfaction. It is a shame you did not visit upstairs, as we have another bar and a great balcony up there, maybe next time?
