Feeling a little hungover we called in for a quick bite to eat.

Food was usual Hard Rock standard and just what we needed.

Palesa our waitress was exceptional and was very informative. She gave us lots of helpful info on the area and was very good at her job.

Food came quickly and was exactly as ordered.

Not worth the price! Basic, cheapest and least amount of ingredients used in the burgers and salads we tried, very boring decor of rock n roll history, mediocre service. Just no.
