    I went to On the Rocks with a friend for lunch, we started with Belly Pork which sounds fatty but isn’t at all, small portions but delicious, then we had Beef Ragu with was yummy, we also had a nice bottle of wine, sat enjoying the view, lovely service, would defiantly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Food was delicious. Service very attentive. Good wine selection. My only small gripe is we were a party of 5 adults and were squeezed onto a table that was small so we were a bit cramped.

    We love this place!! You can get an amazing roast dinner and an exceptional vegan / vegetarian option in the same restaurant which is rare. Staff are friendly and helpful and when we are in the area we will return again. Been twice so far!! Due to the fact that everything is cooked fresh there is a wait buts it’s wirth it!!

    Chose the restaurant as had previously enjoyed meals there and wanted to treat my mum.
    My husband had ribeye steak which was cooked to perfection and succulent.
    Myself and mum went for the duck choice as it is something I am not good at cooking . The food was delicious ,well presented and all dishes arrived together .The carafe of house red wine is good value .
    I love trying new dishes in here as they are always tasty and never disappoint .
    It is great that the menu gets updated ,gives more choices to try .
    Good quality products locally sourced , how good is that ?
    Look forward to revisiting in the near future.

    Truly lovely food. The restaurant was bustling and we had an enjoyable evening.

    Rockfish is one of my favourite restaurants in all of the area and often my first choice when eating out. I love the quality and variety and am never disappointed. While the fish or prawn tacos are my favourite, I often have a difficult time choosing what to have as there are so many delicious choices. I also greatly appreciate the unlimited chips! The small portions served as required means I eat fewer than I usually would but, more importantly, the chips are ensured to be fresh and hot throughout the meal. Although the place is always buzzing and busy when I go, I find the service consistently very good to excellent.
