All was, as usual GREAT!
Good service, good food and fair prices!
Casual, clean and on the seafront with outdoor tables too....
Changes occasionally one or two things on the menu and sometimes has a special or two...
Highly recommended... can’t say more... try it!

    Excellent food and service. Really tasty and great wine

    It was a 55 minute wait between canapes and starters. The clam dish was incredibly salty and the dressing on the ceaser salad was too fishy in an off way.

    1st time we'd been to on the rocks and will definitely be returning. The food was so good. Really good choice on the menu to cater for everyone. All staff were really helpful and friendly. And restaurant was very clean.

    Great food, great location and great service. Sadly we learnt our lovely waitress will be leaving for Australia at the end of the season. A lovely meal and will return.
