We were four friends coming to have some fun in our favourite cafe but we're very disappointed with cocktails. They are poor looking and no worth the price. We as well missed some atmosphere on Saturday evening, it would be great if the live music is on more days of the week, not just Fridays.

My very first time in Manchester and in HRC. The attendant spent all time necessary with me to explain and make sure that I choose the best option according my wish. The guitars and all environment is unique!

Was surprised by how quiet it was although this meant we didn't have to wait for a table. Somewhat disappointed to find out that the local burger had been changed to chicken burger with curry sauce. Just didn't sound appealing! The food we had was to the standard we expect from Hard Rock Manchester. Sadly cocktails were made very slowly... More

Booked a surprise Valentines meal for my partner as an advert popped up on Facebook for their £60 deal. Called up and made the £20 deposit. All very straight forward. I wanted to book a meal for us that wouldn't feel awkward as being a same sex couple I've had x2 bad experiences where I've not been able to relax........ More

Don't expect a gastronomic experience at Hard Rock. But the burger was juicy, the fries were warm and crispy and the waitress serviceminded.

We had a lovely meal here, the food is as always a good standard and the waiting staff are so friendly - the only thing that let it down was there was very little atmosphere, not that I love it bouncing, but I thought there was something missing - if you like Hard Rock you'll enjoy this though.

We were at the restaurant on Saturday night. We arrived around 6:45pm and we were told to wait for aprox. 45 min to take a table. While we were waiting we bought some drinks in the bar. After one hour, we needed to remind to the waiter that we were still waiting for a table. Finally we took the table... More
