We ate at The Kitchen several times during our stay at Hard rock. We had lunches, dinners and breakfasts. Quality of food is excellent. It is reasonably priced and service is outstanding. It’s waiters are a credit to the restaurant. Would definitely recommend.

Breakfast with the family was great the eggs were done correctly. The plates had plenty on each. For being stuck in the resort the prices were reasonable for the amount and quality of the food.
