“Rocking in Medellin”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Food was ok, not up to the London, Amsterdam and other HR cafe's if eaten around the world. Staff was friendly . Service was quick. Only 10% of the tables were occupies so the staff was very attentive.

Music was a little loud for the level of the crowd. Averaging 88dB with peaks at 101 dB. So you would not stay too long without some temporary deafness.

But food was average and location was convenient To the hotel. If you a traveling it is worth the stop. Their ribs were fabulous last trip.

“Average, same stuff everywhere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

Not much new here - Ribs from America - beer from Colombia draft Club which is pretty good (not many places have draft beer in Colombia). They had Bud which is available here as well to. The food tastes like American and can be found at other places in Colombia which tastes much better. None the less they have a strong following. Also it's expensive. Food quality is average. It's one of those places that I would pass on going to.

“Sooo Disappointing!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

I went to this restaurant with my family to have lunch, I've been to many HardRock around the world and I can say they couldn't bring the concept to Medellin's Cafe. Service was the worst I've gotten in upscale restaurants in my life, they are never there for you, they don't have knowdlege about the menu (no suggestions, no specials, they didn't explain, since was my parents first time to this place) and it's a just very disapponting experience I had to sell everything to myself.
The food was also cold and it looked like it sitted somewhere for a long time before coming to the table, we told the manager and he could't even apologize for their kitchen mistake.
I believe they just need some more dining experience so this restaurant can have the same concept as the others, and just be a place to have everyone leaving happy and satisfied
The only thing I liked is the atmosphere the music is still what's expected, it's also beautiful inside, wonderful lighting and comfortable sitting, such a waste... huh?

“Hard Rock medellin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

The Hard Rock Cafe in medellin is located in El Poblado an upscale neighborhood in Medellin , the staff is a little slow sometimes , happy hour was excellent , worth going , having been to many hard rock cafes around the world i can say this is a very good location , and has a very good vibe about it....i recommend their mac and cheese , something different from your tipical burger ...which on the menu seemed just as expensive as the steak not sure why...
