We were there last nite, the view was magnificent until it started to rain badly after our first course. Services were good and the food was different from normal. Prepare for a long hour dinner there, we spent 3 and a half hours for the 10 courses meal. Lovely food with very good price compared to... read more

The reviews in the free dining book was over-the-top and not realistic. I had allergies to certain food items and given the Chef's like to play with food, thought they would at least cater to my needs as it is a matter of life and death for me unfortunately. I expected more and thought it was overly priced for what... More

The food was fantastic and the description ends up being served in a totally different fashion which makes the dishes surprising in its appearance and taste. The views and the sunset are worth the visit initself

Booked this restaurant at Sixth Senth resort for a special anniversary dinner. The view was spectacular (but you need to arrive before sunset) & the service spot on. But after dark you can`t see the view - so then it`s all about the food. The food was innovative & spectacular. We could not have found better at home for the... More

We had our reception meal here, we had over 30 guests. It was outstanding food, 5 courses, and presentation was great. We recommend the restaurant to all, also the views are magic!

I am happy to highly recommend thsi restaurant, for a special occasion, ask for "Table 99" it sits on its own private terrace and you have your own serving staff. The view is incredible, so try to get there a little before sunset! We had a 10-course meal and each was more amazing, imaginative and inventive before the last!

If you visit this restaurant, it has to be for the location, location and location. Dining on the rocks – the in house restaurant is an excellent place to have dinner as it gives you a panoramic view of the sea & the islands. The sun set is superb at dining on the hills.

This place is by far the most unusual way to eat some foods... Lots of powdered foods, full of flavour. Nice setting, bit of an adventure in the rain.. We had three course meal plus wine set us back a little over three hundred dollars however quite comparable to Sydney restaurants. Service was friendly and average, nice place.

Ok, So I love great food, but I'm yet to have been wowed by the molecular type food...what happened to good old fashion tasty food. However, Dining on the Rocks may have changed my mind. The food was creative and adventurous without losing that all important thing - great, harmonious taste. The view, I must say, that a company's your... More
