Very nice venue on the Cancun strip...the usual great music and memorabilia, good food and friendly service. Get your overpriced t-shirt from the merchandise shoppe...got 'em from Bali to Angkor, Vienna to Vientiane, Los Cabos to Grand Cayman, Pattaya to Kota Kinabalu and Miami to NYC.

We try to stop at the Hard Rock whenever there is one in the area. The menu was as expected. The food was really good, and the portions are large. We got to sit out on the beach. I was worried we would be forgotten, but our server stayed on top of things. It was a very nice experience, and... More

The beach and ocean view is very nice, but it is also from the cheaper restaurant next door. Dinner for 2 and 2 drinks ran a bill of $80ish..... horribly high priced for average food at best. Just skip this one and go to chillis next door for same view, better food, and much lower price. I won't make this... More

My husband and I went to eat at Hard Rock in Cancun on our last night because we were in the mood for a good burger. We sat outside, despite being in the evening, we noticed a wonderful view of the sea. We chose our burgers which came a little cold, and it was not the best we have ever... More

We were taken to our seats outside. View was beautiful and the restaurant itself was gorgeous. We were seated in between the only 2 other occupied tables. It was early so not busy at all. We sat for 15 minutes without anyone coming around. We noticed one server taking care of the table to our right and then a totally... More

A resort town basically carved out of pure jungle, Cancun was nothing but birds and iguanas as recently as 1974, when development began. Set upon the Yucatán Peninsula, the city is thronged by famous ruins: centuries-old pyramids, temples of the ancient Mayans, travelers who didn't get to the Hard Rock Cafe in time. Just kidding! But you will be sorry if you miss us. Nightlife options are plentiful here, with everything to amuse from sports to gambling bars to romantic piano bars. Trust us 'cause we've already scouted it all out. By far the best choice is your resident expert on having a good time, yours truly, the Hard Rock Cafe Cancun. So after you've hiked through the exotic jungles and explored the ruins, get ready to uncover the real treasure, our Cancun Cafe! You'll find a valuable rock 'n' roll memorabilia collection at our exclusive restaurant, plus an incredible and unmatched expansive ocean view. Dig in and treat yourself to a delicious lunch or dinner!
