    Hard rock cafe: American food and good music

    I can hear from here how many people say "Oh no, why do they go to an American restaurant in France!". I tell you why: We were two weeks in Paris, so we did eat mostly at French restaurants, but sometimes we want to have something different. We don´t have many "real" American restaurants at Finland, only some hamburger places ( I don´t mean McDonalds ) so it´s something we don´t have in Finland. For example: We just love the potato skins, and I don´t know any place in Finland serving them. And o.k., we do like the music they play at many of these places. Allthough it seems like it changes from day to day. When we went for a beer and potato skins (yes, we only took them!!) at aftrenoon they had some boring pop playing, but some days later we came to eat here and it was around 22 o´clock and music was much closer what the name of the restaurant tells you :) We are quite a music lovers, so we also allways try to find if they do have anything from our favourites, like guitar from AC/DC, jacket of Metallica-member etc.
    We ate twisted mac and cheese with chicken. I surely did miss the good steaks we had eaten at Fridays, but this was o.k. too. And little cheaper. Their steaks wasn´t sounding as good (why do they put jack Daniels to every one of them??). We also took potato skins as appetizer. I think we did drink beer there.

    Favorite Dish: Potato skins! I just love them,and so does my husband. They were allmost even better here than at some other Hard rock cafes. i guess it was about the cheese.
    I usually love the creme brulee (and after big meal, it´s nice to have it so small), but after eating many "real" creme brulees at French restaurants, this was nothing compared to them! Like you could guess!
    I didn´t take the photo of the food, because place was so full, and sometimes I feel crazy taking photos of our food ;)

    Hard Rock Cafe Paris: expensive American food in Paris

    I travel to HRC all over the world. The food is bad and expensive but the atmosphere is amazing. The bus system will drop you right off in front of the cafe. They have English speaking servers. Lots of stuff to look at but if you have traveled to Paris I don’t thing American food is what you should be eating.

    Favorite Dish: Mac and Cheese or the Skins

    Hard Rock Cafe: Hard Rock

    by nora_south_africa Updated Dec 3, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Hard Rock Cafe Paris offers more than just great food it is a museum of culture, with rock 'n' roll legends covering the walls, screens showing videos, and an unbelievable sound system. In the restaurant and bar all is done to give an American experience.

    The Hard Rock Cafe Paris is centrally located next to the Opera and the Grands Boulevards, not far from famous places such as Musée Grévin, les Etoiles du Rex or the Theather of Varietes. Hard Rock Cafe Paris has American food and great music. There is also a retail store where you can purchase limited edition and collectible Hard Rock t-Shirts, jackets and souvenirs.

    On our last day, we decided to go to the Hard Rock Cafe. Dave and I needed an American fix. We watched music videos and ate a good American dinner. Our son colored in his book practically the whole time

    The Hard Rock Café: It's touristy, but it makes for a fine memory!

    Nobody could have stopped me from going to the Hard Rock Café on my last day in Paris. I had staked out its location on Boulevard Montmatre for over a week and I was really excited about the prospect of going there. You see, I had never actually been to a Hard Rock Café before. I had these wonderfully romantic notions of what it could be like. I was sort of the unofficial music guru of my high school - playing guitar, going to concerts, and having a bizarre encyclopedic knowledge of contemporary rock music. So, with this mindframe, nobody was going to pull me away from this experience!

    However, the only thing that tempted me away from the Hard Rock Café was a group of fellow music lovers who were planning to take the Metro east-bound to the Père Lachaise cemetary to look at Jim Morrison's grave. While I was definitely interested, for some reason the Hard Rock Café appealed to me more.

    So, during our last day in Paris during our only few hours of spare time that we had (without teacher supervision!), I, along with 5 of my friends had lunch at the Hard Rock Café. We stuffed ourselves with burgers and enjoyed the music memorabilia and our happy-go-lucky server. What was unexpected, however, was the lack of hard rock. I remember hearing a Céline Dion song playing there, and it seemed so out of place!

    We then, suckered in by it all, purchased Hard Rock Café Paris souvenirs to bring home. I bought an over-sized limited edition Hard Rock Café Paris t-shirt that had all the members of Aerosmith's autographs lithographed on the back.

    Favorite Dish: The burgers were large, tasty, and were served with a pile of fries. The menu offered typically American diner food. Generally I'm not a fan of chains when I'm travelling, but when you're 14, you're hungry, you're with friends, the Hard Rock Café Paris is the best place in the world!

    Hard Rock Cafe: When you are missing home

    by Moustique Updated Nov 17, 2003

    I actually went here a couple times on different visits to Paris. Each time I had a really good time. The staff is very friendly and about the only place you will find a good long island ice tea. Watch out they are very strong though. Sit at the bar and you will meet people from all over.

    Favorite Dish: Long Island Ice Tea, the first time we went we got a good deal 3 budlights, ribs, coleslaw, baked beans and a salad for about $11.

    The food and the restaurant were both great. It was very clean, and the staff there were great to us. Most of us couldn't speak French so they tried to understand what we were ordering.

    Favorite Dish: Our favorite dish was burgers and fries. We all liked it because it was the only American food we had while we were there.

    Non-Hard Rock Cafe fans will...

    Non-Hard Rock Cafe fans will surely groan at this suggestion. Ah, nevermind! You must pop by the Hard Rock Cafe joint here in Paris... just a 15-minutes walk away from the Opera area. Lunching here was nice (for a change) and the cost of a main dish here didn't burn a hole in our pockets... which was also nice for a change! :-))
