We sit outside. The fround was dirty. After the order we got dirty glasses and half dirty knives. They forgot out the meat from my Steak salade- so I had to ask for it. The steak was chewy - i could not eat it. We...also ordered some shrinks- the portuon is small, taste is not really pleasant. These all for a high price in the middlenof the city.More

We spent our anniversary dinner at Hard Rock cafe last week, ordered some cocktails and had some house specialties for dinner. Even the restaurant was busy, our server payed attention for proper service and we had a really great time! Not the cheapest place in...town, but you got to pay for quality. Definitely would recommend if you want a unique Rock n Roll gastro experience.More

Closed since mid 2020, and re-opened - Monday 17th May 2021, which delighted us, living in Budapest, just 5 minutes" stroll" to this Hard Rock Cafe. Prices on re-opening remained at levels - pre closing mid 2020. Tuesday 25th May 2021 - just (8) eight...days of being re-opened, prices across the Menu ALL increased on average 1000 huf - 2.85 Euro. Sadly - why were the prices increased from re-opening date of May 17th ? - opened just (8) eight days. Regulars - we watch take not of this type of "game". We ALL have suffered financially in different ways from this novel coronavirus and to "hands on" witness this type of human exploration of price increase rests uncomfortable with me that I term as Greed. Not surprised at 1700 hours - not one customer inside nor outside at this Hard Rock Cafe. 1972/1973 - Hard Rock Cafe - my years of working and Living in London first visted a Hard Rock Cafe in Piccadilly and since those long past years many other Hard Rock Cafe's around the World. Share the Pain - we are ALL in this challenge to return life to a degree of normality which does not need Greed hindering economic and life-style quality.More

Dear Gary, Thank you for your feedback. We are surprised to read your disappointment, since we did not change the price of items on our menu for the re-opening (19th May, Wednesday). Would you be so kind and send us exactly how you find out...More

My husband and I are fans of Hard Rock Restaurants. We have been to many all over the world. He collects Hard Rock pins and I pick up the obligatory T Shirt. It seems their goal is to have the same menu each place you...go to for consistency. I probably would not write a review for each one but this is an exception. My baseline comparison is the Pig Sandwich (which it seems they have renamed). The pork in this region is unbelievable so it seemed a good idea to stick with my plan. This was by far the best 'Pig Sandwich' I have had at any Hard Rock. We were there mid afternoon so the atmosphere was a bit quiet, but the restaurant is very spacious. (July, 2019)More

I've been to other Hard Rock Cafe s before, but this one was a little bit different... To be quite honest, I didn't really feel that type of professionalism that is typical for HRC. We had salmon, ribs, nachos, burgers and a steak salad. I...personally know how they should look/taste like, since I have gained knowledge on that during my past visits to other branches both in Europe and in the States, and I can say that none of the dishes came out as expected. The medium-rare patty in one of the burgers was actually well-done, while the same thing happened to the supposedly medium done burger. The salmon was very sticky and sweet because of the big quantity of BBQ sauce on it... The ribs were rather hard than tender, and the cheesy-fries came with only a few overcooked pieces of bacon, and no green chopped onions on top. The nachos had something sweet, but I put that on the sugar in the sauces, which might be just a cultural thing/preference so I wouldn't count it. Other than that, the drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) that we got tasted accordingly, the brownie was great and we were impressed by the memorabilia collection and the general aspect and location of the restaurant. Our server was also clearly well trained and very friendly. Overall I would rate it as a nice experience, excepting the food, which left us a bit disappointed. But to be honest, I'd still go back, hoping for improvements.More

As always, Hard Rock never disappoints. Beautiful and well-kept place, suitable music. Staff as kind as in any Hard Rock visited. We stopped to eat here because they had a very convenient offer, prices as usual. Amazing design with different details.
