“Good portions”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Was there today and we both had burgers which were very good but the beef in my burger was a bit tasteless, I'd suggest using Aberdeen Angus beef. The vanilla milk shakes were the best things I've had in ages. Very pleased with the meal and service overall.

“(Dungeon) Dinner and Daiquiri's”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

For my friends's hen party I booked the dungeon, dinner and daqiari's package through the Edinburgh dungeon. This gives entry to the dungeon and then a cocktail Masterclass with nibbles at Hard Rock Cafe. The whole day was fantastic, the lady who took our Masterclass was excellent and taught us not only how to mix cocktails but about the history of different spirits which was fascinating. The food was delicious and after our food we had a chance to create our own cocktail using the skills we had won. I would highly recommend.

“Great food & good music”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

We go to the Hard Rock Cafe every time we visit Edinburgh. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is buzzing. The staff are extremely friendly and are willing to stop and chat. There is memorabilia around the walls such as Mick Jagger's jacket and various guitars from different rock stars. The music videos are brilliant if you don't want to talk.

“Lovely food, good location”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Great selection of food, quite pricey for what you get, but very nice. There were 10 of us and arrived for a lunchtime meal just as the restaurant opened and our order was taken straight away with plenty of recommendations from our friendly server
