We visited late in the middle of the week so hard to judge. I felt like we were been hurried along which didn't really surprise given the time was around half 10. Our food was pretty average to be honest, especially considering the high prices...More

Visited for our usual hurricane cocktails - love a collectors glass! Definitely not the best cocktail I've had. Usually love the hurricane, but this didn't seem to be the same as the other Hard Rock Cafe's we've visited. Still nice, but need to brush up....More

All I can say is the food is great with big portions the atmosphere is excellent but can be loud and is a little on the expensive side for burgers but I would recommend as a treat or special occasion.

Probably about a 20 to 30 minute walk. Go along South and North bridge onto Princes St, along St Andrews St into St Andrews Square the left onto George St, not far down on L/H/S.
