Hard Rock Café: "you have to do this!" Hurghada Restaurant Tip by gaj86

Hurghada Restaurants: 54 reviews and 72 photos

It might seem a bit ethnocentric to go all the way to Africa and then eat at a chain restaurant that you have back home, but after a few days I'm pretty sure that you will be sick of your hotel's food, and will crave a bit of "real" food and music!
If you're a fan of the Hard Rock anyway, you have to do this. The food prices are amazing... the burgers which are about £10.99 in England are about 390LE, or £3.90. The drinks are still quite pricey, but when you can get 3 courses and 2 cocktails for about twenty quid, it's a pretty good "extravagant" night. The staff are lovely here, too, and they can dance!
Tell them it's your birthday and watch what happens... (hint: free brownie sundae!)... and when the music starts on the speakers, they all get up and dance in synchrony. The souveneir shop is very expensive, but I went there for the food!
Depending on where in Hurghada you are, it might be a taxi ride away from you. Don't pay any more than 15LE for a taxi - that's £1.50 - regardless of how many of you there are. If you're lucky, though, you'll be able to walk down. A brilliant night!
*However - it was after this night that I got a funny tummy. The only thing I had that my boyfriend didn't was cocktails, so it was either the alcohol or the ice in them (made from tap water)... so, be careful!

Favorite Dish: Blue cheese sauce!!! Also, I had steak, which was gooooood after days of sludgy stews and boring rice and tiny bits of beef.

Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Not totally sure off the top of my head, check out the official Hard Rock cafe website!
