We have met a few friends and discovered (for me, in any case) the outdoor seating area. This was ideal given the current weather in Dubai and allowed those in the party that want to smoke to do so. What was even nicer was the...More

As an avid Hard Rock Cafe pin collector I had to make a visit. The staff were friendly and helpful. I had dinner here as well. And the food was pretty good.
