Worth the wait

It was a Saturday and extremely busy at lunchtime, so there was a wait, but I was found a table before I got fed up. I was alone but still had a table to myself. I had a sweet pancake and it was DELICIOUS! My only complaint is that the waitress didn't use her common sense when taking a group... read more

My family were amazed at the fast yet personable service we received. The queue into Pancakes at the Rocks was packed all the way up the stairs and snaking around the corner onto the street. It was a great way to end out tour around the Vivid sites. Thank you for taking great care of us. See you again!

Food was okay. Location is great to walk around the bridge/harbor before or after (I walked around after breakfast).

Pancakes on the Rocks is now an institution at the Rocks, having set up 45 years ago, in 1975. The food is consistent, with a good variety and not too expensive. Not a great place for a romantic dinner or lunch but a good average place for family or for a quick and enjoyable meal.

I am writing this with my disappointment really. We are a group of four and one of us does not take pork due to religious reason. Therefore when the waitress took the order we requested to make the chicken and bacon pizza half and half so my colleague could actually take it. When the pizza came and I actually ate... More

If you are willing to wait... then this might be the place for you. There is also another branch at Darling harbour.
