We went for dinner and visit the Hard Rock Shop, and we were presently surprised , there was a live band playing, and they were very easy listening. The food was excellent, quick efficient service. Drinks were topped up quickly and in general service excellent.

After arriving in Dubai we wanted somewhere that would be great for our son and give me, as a coeliac, some choice. The Hard Rock Cafe did this in spades.

When on holiday if there's a Hard Rock, we tend to eat there so why make Dubai an exception. It was relatively quiet when we arrived around 7pm on a Sunday night ,served by a friendly staff member. As with the rest of Dubai, found the drinks expensive, especially the alcoholic ones, a lot more so than other Hard Rocks.... More

We were excited to try the Hard Rock in Dubai but were disappointed in the selection of food, quality of the food and portion size. Positives: always fun to see the memorabilia but that is about it. Also, serves alcohol which is a bonus when at the mall. Don't think I'd go back other than for a pint.
