Description: Cartagena is one of Colombia’s oldest and most preserved historic cities. It was founded in the 1530’s by the Spanish crown that wrestled it from the indigenous and fierce Caribe Indians, the initial inhabitants in Pre-Columbian times. The wall surrounding the old town and guarding it from the bay is over 6 miles long and within it Cartagena is a town were time stands still. The Hard Rock Cafe is situated at the very heart of this living monument in the town square - "la plaza de la Aduana" - near the historic clock tower entrance in a house displayed on ancient maps dating to the 1550’ s.

“The worst ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Easily the worst hard rock cafe we have been to. The food is a mess and barely resembles the menu of other places. Don't even get me started on the desert.

“Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Big cocktails, average service, food was ok on the day, but we both got mild food provisioning from it.
This was my first Hard Rock Cafe experience and I was disappointed, but certainly can't fault the music.

“Typical Hard Rock”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

There was a lot of construction going on in there area so it was not particularly easy to find. When we finally found it, it did not open for a couple hours so we did some sight seeing and found our way back for a quick drink. Only the bar was open so we had our requisite hurricane and left. I wish we could have gone into the restaurant as that is where the character is. The drink was ok but the atmosphere was so-so.

“Just an Average HRC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We had couple of coctails during the Happy Hour which were ok. Then we ordered vanilla icecream which was ok but according to me nothing special and quite overpriced. All in all, there are definitely better and more interesting places in Cartagena!
