    Only quibble is I wish I had ordered fish of the day, which was sole, which my wife ordered. It was sublime. The tempura veg, crispy squid, red mullet etc. was just plain very good. Decent wine list and friendly host. This was my second visit and it will be a "go to" destination on any and every future visit.

    Very enjoyable and extremely tasty meal , had the Sunday lunch menu . Both enjoyed Roast Beef . The vegetables were fresh and full of flavour , the beef tender and tasty and potatoes and Yorkshire puddings delicious. Washed down with house red wine , certainly didn’t disappoint.

    We were in Torquay for a weekend with friends, we went to On The Rocks based on reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed, the food was amazing as was the service. The staff were friendly and happy to accommodate any specific dietary requirements. Will be back next time we are in the town.
