Customer reviews for On The Rocks
((((( 27 May 2019 by Henry from Torquay
It was a lovely evening. The food was really good and the service was excellent. It really nice to have a restaurant busy with lots of people enjoying their meal. The only slight disappointment was that we had to wait a long time for our main meal, but when it came up it was excellent.

Very disappointing meal.
Main meal was cold, roast potatoes were warmed up. Had to wait until almost end of meal before gravy arrived

On The Rocks has long been a family favourite. It’s in a great location to enjoy a view of Torbay and to watch the world go by. The standard of food is always high and the atmosphere is relaxed with attentive service.
On our last visit, my mum thought her roasted john dory was a little underdone. Our waitress instantly had it off the table and just minutes later two new, beautiful fillets of john dory, along with fresh potatoes and green salad (both delicious) were back. Truly a superb effort from the OTR team who then did not charge for my mum’s main course. I would have happily paid given the speed and the courtesy shown.
The rest of the meal was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The wine list gave plenty of scope for us to match something appropriate to fish and a steak dish.
If you’re thinking about going to On The Rocks... stop thinking about it and get on and book it!

It was easy to book the table. Food was really and the service was good. We asked for dessert menu as we had 40 min until the table was needed. It was almost like we wouldn’t get the menus unless we promised we would be out on time.

This is the 2nd time I've visited in 2 years. This was a lunchtime birthday meal for 5 people. The staff are great, the atmosphere very relaxing and the food fantastic. I had skate wing with a chicken butter sauce it was amazing the best skate I have ever tasted. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. Everything was fabulous, we will certainly frequent on the Rocks more often in future.. its a hidden gem
