Chances are, you’ve at least heard of Hard Rock Cafe. Featuring hundreds of locations all across the globe, from New York City to Fiji, this incredible restaurant franchise has made a name for itself by serving classic American cuisine in a rock-n-roll atmosphere. The Sydney branch keeps the spirit alive at its location in the heart of the city on the first and second floor of Harbourside Shopping Centre – on Darling Harbour’ Darling Drive – with opening hours seven days a week for your dining pleasure.
The music was way too loud. You couldn't even have a conversation. I've been to several hard rock cafe's but the loudness has never been an issue. This time it was ridiculous.
A great night out. Food and service was excellent. Our waitress looked after us throughout the night. Music and atmosphere was as you would expect - lots of fun.
Like all of the Hard Rock Cafe locations, Sydney’s branch in lovely Darling Harbour is decorated with hard-to-find music memorabilia, instruments, records and portraits of famous musicians. And just like at most locations, you’ll find an amazing gift shop, The Rock Shop, featuring awesome collectible gifts and souvenirs. Its location inside of Harbourside Centre on Darling Drive means it’ right in the hubbub of the city, just moments from famous attractions like the Sydney Aquarium and Madame Tussauds, and just steps from the Convention Centre light rail Amerstation.
The cool decor isn’t the only thing that makes Hard Rock Cafe famous across the globe – the American food on offer is just about as good as it gets. Start off with the famous spinach artichoke dip, a creamy, decadent mix of spinach, cheese, and artichokes, all topped off with Romano cheese and parmesan flatbread. Then, you’ll need to choose whether to take a juicy steak, a burger cooked to perfection, or seafood specialities like the grilled Tasmanian salmon. We recommend going for the Hard Rock Cafe’s Legendary Aussie Burger, your choice of a 6oz or 10oz beef patty topped with caramelized onions, crispy bacon, melted cheddar cheese, lettuce, a fried egg and beet. Don’t even think about skipping dessert at this icon in Sydney’s Darling Harbour – take the hot fudge brownie and indulge in a sweet experience you’ll never forget!
