We were really pleasantly surprised to see that the Hard Rock Cafe has opened in Camps Bay. I think it had only been open for five weeks, so all things told, they’re doing pretty well. We had the nachos as a quick lunch to share. The portion was generous (although there could have been a little more sour cream!!) and the staff were friendly and attentive. We have been to many Hard Rock Cafes all over the world, as it was a good place to go when our kids were young, and we’ve kind of kept up the tradition. I’d say that they have a way to go to get to the same standard as some of the more established locations, but they’ve made a great start in a very good location.

Thank Sushkin

Sadly this newcomer Hard Rock Café did not yet live up to the expectations and standards of other Hard Rock Cafés around the world. The devil is unfortunately in the details. The staff was very friendly and efficient and the cocktails are really good, but unfortunately it is not served in the trademark Hard Rock glasses used at other branches around the world. We ordered burgers, but I doubt whether the patties were the size they are at other branches. All in all a little bit disappointing. The third thing that stood out for me, was the fact that the Rock Shop sells merchandise branded Hard Rock Pretoria. A little bit strange considering that this is the Cape Town branch... On the positive side, the location is quite nice and with a few small tweaks this Hard Rock can be a great one.

Good day Ann992013, thank you for your feedback. We apologize that we did not live up to the standard that you would have expected in other cafes. We are glad that the staff were attentive and that you enjoyed the cocktails. All our cocktails are served in a 12Oz glass and can be served in the collectible glassware at an additional charge. We have merchandise from the Johannesburg as well as Pretoria cafes in order to offer guests coming to Cape Town the possibility of purchasing items from all of our stores in South Africa. We will continue to try to improve our offering and hope that your next visit will be one that is more memorable.

We came in for drinks and we were not disappointed. We first sat upside at the balcony but when that became too warm we sat down by the bar. The two bartenders on the top floor were both helpful and efficient. Cocktails were delicious and we are very happy with our visit!

First, I think it's too early to make proper reviews on the place that has just opened. This was HRC no 45-50 on my tours. I had a lunch and a dinner, and both of them were delicious and the service was smooth. I have nothing much to complain, merely thumbs up and good luck guys. I am sure this place will be rocking as what soon.
