The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

    Great Hard Rock Cafe
    We came for some dinner on a Friday evening. The Cafe is is a good location at the end of the main street and close to the old centre of Vienna. The Cafe was busy with a great atmosphere and Staff were very welcoming and friendly. The food was great along with the beer and cocktails too. I would recommend!

    Amazing service and experience
    We had a really fantastic evening which was made better by our waiter Miguel who was a fantastic host, really pleasant and funny and made our night that more special. This was a very popular place, the food was delicious and the portions were massive, the dessert size is always a sharer and the cocktails were great. The person who served us in the shop was really nice and pleasant to speak to and it was fantastic service all around. Places like this make you want to return when the experience hits all the notes. Thank you for a wonderful evening :)

    Fantastic Visit.
    Visited here on a day trip from the Xmas markets in Bratislava. As you would expect it was really busy, we had a drink at the bar whilst waiting for a table, it only took 15 minutes or so, we were a group of 7. We were shown upstairs, our server was Maria, think Maria was from Romania, she spoke excellent English. She was very informative and an absolute delight, polite and really positive, she also had a great sense of humour. Our drinks and food arrived in good time, the food was excellent, tasted great and was warm. We had a great visit that was made even better by Maria, definitely recommend you pop in here. Merry Christmas Maria!

    Very Good Service !
    We just had Lunch in the Hard Rock Cafe before our Boat Trip, 5mn walk from there. This is a tiny Hard Rock Cafe but the welcome was fantastic, very careful about Guests satisfaction, loved it ! Meals and prices are very average and similar to any Hard Rock Cafe and it was good enough for us. Again, the famous Cocktails and the offered Glasses were a Plus ! It is located is a nice streets where you can enjoy some shopping and it is very near by the So Vienna Hotel. Thanks to Fransesca, our Host of the Day !

    Great place!
    We’ve been to Vienna, many times, and didn’t realise they had a HRC. So pleased we found this one. Service was so good, we went twice. The first time, we were taken care of by Effye, who did a great job! The second time Peter was also excellent! The restaurant is charming, lovely atmosphere and great array of rock memorabilia. The food was great quality and reflected the high standards we’ve come to expect from HRC. Next time we’re in Vienna, we’ll be returning here as we felt so welcome. Would highly recommend!

    Just like any other Hard Rock, but on the smaller side
    Fairly small store and restaurant area compared to other countries we have visited. Food pretty good as usual, fast service. They managed to fit us in even though we arrived too early for our booking.

Starters of the boneless chicken wings were inedible, they were pink inside and didn’t taste nice.
Don’t buy a refillable drink the service is very poor and the you will have to wait or ask your self to get a refill.
The plates were not moved for over 20 minutes after multiple servers walked past the table.

Main course of the burgers were not cooked correctly, asked for well done it came very pink all over.

Would not recommend spending the money in here as it’s very expensive for poor food and terrible service.

This is a great hard rock, and we've been to quite a few now! Lots of cool merch and big throne to sit on. We enjoyed cocktails here during a long weekend in Vienna.
