My 2nd visit to a Hard Rock Cafe. My first was in NYC, this one was just as good. The cocktails and sharing platters are a must.

Not the worst but not the best. Seems overstaffed. Lots of conversations overheard that are adult in nature and detract from the small and cozy environment. Staff should be mindful of what can be overheard and what might be inappropriate for customers to hear. However,...More

Does any one have a price list? Menu on the website doesn't show any. Want to know if it's worth doing the gold/diamond menu which is prebookable.

All I can say is the food is great with big portions the atmosphere is excellent but can be loud and is a little on the expensive side for burgers but I would recommend as a treat or special occasion.

Probably about a 20 to 30 minute walk. Go along South and North bridge onto Princes St, along St Andrews St into St Andrews Square the left onto George St, not far down on L/H/S.
