Being on holiday with the offspring can sometimes limit just how adventurous one can be: but they reluctantly allowed the old mother a bit of nostalgia. The oldest- miss superfussy- asked for the lamb cutlets without any of the spicy topping... and loved it. The younger asked for advise from Isabella, waitress-extraordinaire, and had " the best hamburger I have... More

This place is in a beautiful area but has really poor service. I seek out Hard Rocks all over the world and usually but a souvenir there but this place was out of everything. Including the hats. And the service was terrible

First time visit to any Hard Rock Café, we thought we'd do it and see what all the fuss was. The place was great with all the memorabilia around. We sat out side with a view of the harbour which was nice. The food seemed overpriced but the views, atmosphere and size of the meals (burgers) made up for it.... More

We dropped by here for a quick drink on Saturday evening. I was aware that they have heaps of bookings and a busy evening ahead. That's why I asked the bartender if we are able to sit outside with our drinks (which we bought at the bar). He told me that we can sit anywhere we like. We proceeded to... More

Around the World in 80 Dinners took us to Darling Harbour and Hard Rock Cafe. Our group was due to start at 7pm but we decided to have pre-dinners drinks at HRC.

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighborhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to DJ's. Families can visit the Chinese Garden of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Australian National Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
