We were looking forward to eating here not having visited a Hard Rock cafe since 2011 in the US. We arrived to find two flights of polished wood stairs...fairly steep, and no lift access in what is actually a large complex that contains the Cafe. As we had our 7 month old on his pram, that was the end of... More

You are here for a good burger. And that's what you get. Burger shakes and fries and it delivers. Staff are good.

We were three families - 3 couples and 5 boys aged 5-7. Food was great and reasonably priced! Kids menu was excellent with variety. The vibe of the hotel was loud - loud music and live band but that's to be expected given the theme of the restaurant. I would definitely go back!

Food was pretty good.. Great service. Went twice in 2 days. Inside was really warm and a bit uncomfortable - 2nd day we sat outside and it was great. Music and atmosphere is very cool as is the music memorabilia

My husband and i have been to many hard rocks around the world. Some are good some not so good. This one is definitely high on the list. The staff were friendly and efficient. We chose the salmon dish. It was perfectly cooked and tasty. A great overall experience.

In the heart of surfers paradise lies a hidden known, yet unknown secret. The Hard Rock Cafe in surfers has fantastic food and cocktails! Can't recommend them enough for an early evening dinner around 4-5:30....sun is on it's way out and the temperature is perfect. Parakeets flying everywhere and the place is abuzz with life. Kids meals , entrees and... More
