“Great location”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We had lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe, situated at the Grand-Place. Often Hard Rock cafes are located a bit away from the very touristy stuff, but the one in Brussels is really in the middle of it all. It is in a medieval buidling. They were not allowed to change the outside or the layout inside. It is spread out over 4 floors, which gives it a more intimite feeling. The staff were friendly and the burger very nice. One of the better Hard Rock cafes I've visited.

“Not the Belgium experience”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

This is definelty not the Belgium experience, we went here because we live in Brussels and wanted to try it but if you are traveling through Brussels, avoid this place. They are all the same, dont waste your vacation time here, you can eat at the HardRock in North America.

“Surprisingly satisfied!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

I ordered a New York Steak, a bit expensive according to me (23 euros) and was expecting a normal "fast food" steak, but what I had in my plate was SUCCULENT! The steak was perfectly cooked, every slice melted in mouth, it was so delicious. I was very surprised to have such a good steak. It came with mashed potatoes with a sauce, directly came from heaven!
Overall, I had way enough with my steak, I ate very well and the atmosphere is the famous Hard Rock Cafe atmosphere everybody knows!
The staff is very friendly, we had a very nice and helping waiter, Gilly.
My friend had the mac n chesse and oh god how good it was!!! :-)

Everybody is used to having burgers at the HRC but try the steak once ;)!

Thank you!

We could not agree more! Our New York Strip Steak...
A 21-day-aged, center-cut, 12 oz. grilled to your liking and topped with Merlot-garlic butter. Served with fresh vegetables and garlic herb smashed potatoes with gravy.

Sounds delicious and tastes even better :)

Have a rocking weekend!

“Best Hard Rock around.”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

The Brussels Hard Rock was our fourth to visit as we toured around Europe for the month of June. I love the building that it is located and the energy from the staff made us very welcome. I even loved the view from the upstairs of the court yard.

The food and drinks were great and the really cool pins I collect were very nice… Overall, we had a wonderful time
