    Comments:
    "I guess most of us have been to a Hard Rock, the one in Madrid is very good, food reasonable price with free top ups of Coke. Childrens menu is superb and they get crayons to colour it in. Children can also sign up (free) to the Lil Rockers Club, for which they get a membership card which entitles them to a free upgrade of pudding from a plain Helado to a Hot Fudge Sundae. Adults can also sign up for an All Access card - it does cost $25 (euro equivalent) but you get $20 back against your meal, you also get points for every euro you spend, discount in the shop and priority seating which is a god send if its busy and your with hungry little tummies!"
