    Excellent !! although OTR was very busy we were looked after exceptional, Food was exquisite from Scallops to Rib eye steak cooked perfectly for me.
    Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

    Although it was a Monday evening and the restaurant was only half full we had to wait for one hour and fifty minutes for our main courses. However the food was very nice and beautifully cooked but the portions were too small and we left still feeling unsatiated. We had not visited On the Rocks for a few years and had brought some good friends with us and so were disappointed.

    I had checked TripAdvisor for restaurantsale in Torquay and found On the rocks. It did not disappoint from the minute we walked through the door. We were welcomed seated and waited upon by friendly and very efficient staff. The food was excellent with the scallop starter being my stand out dish. Portion sizes good so you leave replete. Would I return? If Torquay had more appeal then yes. 10 out of 10.
