You know what to you are getting. If you don’t like it don’t come. I love HRC when traveling on long trips. A bit of home and good music. And this location has a great wait staff.

Great food and very good service. The young guy who served us was from Poland and gave us lots of info about the country for a future trip there.

Stopped here for a meal before going to a show. Booked online easily. Greeted by a friendly member of staff who showed us to our seats. Had cocktails which were suggested by our server, they were amazing! Food was excellent as expected! Love it.

Always fun to go to a Hard Rock Café. Edinburgh was not exception. Service, as always was great and the food is consistently good. We went twice while we were there, my husband was craving their chicken fajitas. Always recommend a Hard Rock Café.

Don't think they do, it's basically a music themed venue.

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.
