We spent a very pleasant evening there to celebrate our 63rd wedding anniversary. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the food was well prepared and beautifully presented. The music was not to our taste but then we are old codgers!!

    Belly pork starter very good, not sure cabbage with fish was a good choice to put together for main course but all nicely freshly cooked.

    A top evening. Beautiful food for all of us at an excellent price. Good choice of drink also. The atmosphere was relaxed and although full, didn’t feel busy. Will definitely return.

    On the Rocks is a favorite restaurant of mine, it was very busy but we still had good service, and delicious food.

    Wonderful meal/food and waitress service was first class. £10 "apology" from a fellow diner's, let's just say, "flatulantic misdemeanour", didn't spoil the otherwise enjoyable evening meal!!

    Booked this restaurant after reading reviews and the location. We were not disappointed, staff friendly and welcoming and we were able to change our table for an outside one, such fun to “people watch”. So many nice dishes to choose from on the menu and specials board, the monkfish starter and moules were delicious and the pudding was a highlight, can’t remember what it was called but was chocolatey, nutty and had a caramelised banana. Will definitely visit again when back in Torquay.
