By "Skip the line" ticket off Viator.
A smaller menu but still very good value.
We had starters, burgers with fries, sundaes - enormous & a soft drink.

Restaurant clean, food good, staff friendly & quick.

Last week, we went to the HRC Cologne and we had a great time!
I called saturday around 7 o'clock to make a reservation for 8 o'clock but the girl told us that they didn't accept any more reservations. She advised us to come over for a drink, have a little chat and that we would only have to wait about 30 minutes to get a table.. Which we did!
Up on arrival, there was a guy who said we had to wait 15-30minutes, he gave us some kind of phone and after only 5 minutes, they buzzed us so we were very happy to have a table that soon!
The waiters were very friendly, especially the black waiter, he was enthusiastic and making jokes :) the atmosphere was great and the food delicious! My friend had the famous fajitas and I had grilled barbecue chicken and ribs... Very tasteful! We will definitely come back!

Searching for some souvenirs for my kids, I decided to stop by the Hard Rock. But I better have a couple glasses of Kölsch first, right? On a Tuesday night with literally no one at the bar, I sat looking down at the end of the bar wondering if any of the bartenders would come down. Finally, one did, brought me a beer and went back to the end of the bar to talk with the other wait staff. Probably 5 minutes setting with an empty beer glass, I walked down and asked for my tab, paid and although I thought better of it, went into the gift shop. The guy working in there was very nice and noticed that I was a little put off. I asked if there were any more traditional German bars and he was very helpful with that. Without his intervention, this trip would have earned a "terrible" rating...

We seem to always visit a Hard Rock Cafe whenever we go on holiday. Some are great and some are terrible. This is one of the good ones. My fiancé had a mixed grill type thing and I had a salad, which couldn't be more different but both wee really good. Waitress was friendly and music was good.

Really cool place to eat as are all Hard Rocks, even if they play a little too much pop for my liking, it is though extortionately expensive - Don't go there to drink - cocktails cost about 16 euros

Service was slow but they always are at Hard Rocks, same with the food - nice but nothing the shout about

Thanks a lot for your review and glad to know you enjoyed your time here.

Just as a side note for your next visit; the cocktails at close to €16 are including one of our iconic souvenir glasses, whereas the same cocktails without the class come in well below €10.

We wish you a Happy 2014 and are looking forward to welcoming you back soon at one of our many Hard Rock venues worldwide.

Thanks & Cheers
