Hard Rock as usual with beautiful but expensive items. It’s attached to a shopping mall in other side of Sea Life Aquarium wharf.

Virtually no customers, but still had to wait half an hour and remind staff to even get water. Took forever to get our meals and staff didn’t seem to care. No wonder we don’t tip in Australia.More

It is located just in the heart of Darling Harbour. It has a very nice memorabilia, the staff is very kind and the food is good and not expensive (considering where it is located). Also, it played rock all the time!!! Really enjoyed it.

We stopped for a few drinks before dinner. The only cocktail we tried was the Blue Hawaiian which my sisters boyfriend loved! The atmosphere was good and the bar staff were super friendly!

As a bit of a rock music buff, some of my most cherished childhood memories occurred in and amongst the typically vivacious, well-ornamented Hard Rock Café establishments. Since shutting down their Melbourne store in 2007, I have scrambled desperately to fill the Café-sized hole that...More
