A place to bring a tourist

Food overall never disappoint me and love love the pancakes. I love the beef ribs, the meat just comes off the bone. Yumm. Always gonna bring a friend from overseas here as this is one of the icon of Sydney-must-eat. Still be my favourite place to hang out and eat sweet stuff.

They serve a wide variety of food types, not just pancakes. The service is good however it does get loud with the music up high and customers talking louder etc. Also, we usually go early in the evening and have noticed quite extensive queues formed as we leave so if you are intending to go after say 7 pm then...

Best pancakes ever! The strawberry pancakes were amazing. Great value for your money. We went early for breakfast and there were still not that much people.

We enjoyed breakfast at pancakes on the rocks and the place lived up to its reputation! The pancakes were delicious, the prices very good considering the location and the portions more than generous! A fun dining experience and I would definitely recommend it.

Food was delicious but not what I was expecting for an hour wait. I would recommend the crepes, the staff very friendly and great location! Just more for tourists than your local favourite restaurant spot.
