It's like most Hard Rock cafés all over the world. The food is good, the atmosphere relaxed and the staff is friendly. So nothing's wrong, but I rather go to a local Spanish restaurant!

Went here for late lunch. Staff were patient, friendly and service was really good especially Santiago at the bar! Drinks were fantastic and the food was what you'd expect at the Hard Rock, good portions, reasonable prices and yummy! Shop had loads of tshirts and hats and key rings etc. Would recommend a trip :)

Compared to other Hard Rock Cafe that I have visited this HRC is nothing special. Surprisingly very small eating and drinking area, and HRC shop is not worth mentioning.

We ordered two drinks, which taste so darn disgusting, and they are absolutely overpriced. Can you imagine that you have to pay 10 euro for a mojito? That is not far from how much it costs in Zurich. However, the quality in this place is so bad. More disgusting is that, the mojito glass is full of sticky sugary syrup... More

The Hard Rock Cafe was a place where my husband and I went to buy some souvenirs. Well, we ended up staying for a drink. The bartender was full of energy, friendly, and fun. Can't remember his name but he was Italian. The mojito we had was very refreshing. The Cafe is away from main attractions, we took a cab... More

I've been to Hard Rocks all over the world and can honestly say my experience here lived up to the best of them. Delicious cocktails with great happy hour between midnight and 2am. The sharing platter was fantastic and kept us full all evening. One of the most expensive Hard Rocks I've been to, but Madrid isn't a cheap city... More

I celebrated my birthday there last week, the waiters are really cool and nice and they sang for me. The food is always good I just wish I could combine the vegetarian patty with any burger style.

The food was nice but it was very expensive. The staff were deceiving when asking whether we wanted guacamole on the side or offering drinks that weren't on the menu. They were all charged as extras at high prices. I feel as young travelers we were taken advantage of. Whilst being in Spain, I wanted to use my spanish but... More

Hard Rock Cafe is situated next to the Melia Hotel on Christopher Columbus Square. It also contains a merchandising area, selling clothing, coffee cups etc all with the Hard Rock emblem. The cafe is large with three areas for eating, one being a quiet shady outside area , all serviced quickly and efficiently.

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighborhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
