As many other HR-Cafes you must be prepared to wait for a table. We were given a beeper and after one hour our table was waiting for us. If you are travelling with children you might take a stroll in the "indoor" promenade next to the Cafe. At the cinema they have different Arcade games to kill time. As for... More

I don't need to write too much. Hard Rock have a fantastic reputation the world over. Manchester didn't disappoint. Bar and table service was spot on. It was clean and tidy as usual. The normal Rock atmosphere was going strong. If you like Hard Rock you will be happy here. Great service from all.

After a long walk around the city we finally decided to go to this place for a small drink. We waited 5 minutes and had what we wanted. The waiter was very friendly ! Despite this we couldn't find four seat because the cafe was full of people. We went outside to have our drink.

The only problem is that there is always too much people and it's possible that you won't be able to find a seating. But if you're in Manchester, you have... More

After walking for hours, my friends and I decided to have a break in the Hard Rock Café of Manchester. As usual there were a lot of people there and no more places so we went on the terrace but it was great too. We went there just for a drink and we were totally satisfied, for example, the service...

We visited here during February half term, i had my six year old grandson with me and my two sons and partners. The staff were very friendly and attentive, the waitress was knowledgeable and very pleasant. Lovely food and great surroundings.
