Awesome food

The location gets hard to find especially when the sky is dark. Its licated at the lane of 4 hickson road. No waiting time needed when i go (: ordered the pork ribs and beefs ribs. Simply awesome and melt in the mouth. The pancakes serving is big, able to serve 2-4 ppl. Cant wait to go back for it!

Queued for a long time thinking not everyone can be wrong. The inside was dark and the food was mediocre. The staff were friendly and helpful. I think the name of the place is bigger than the food they produce. Still I suppose it's on one of those tick lists of things to do while in Sydney.

I use to love this restaurant but over the last few years, the standards have really dropped off. The pork ribs are good, but apart from that, there's really nothing else that stands out. The Chicken Caesar salad and the pancake desserts were average, The coffees were OK given that's not their specialty, but the food and drinks were overall... More

Worst breakfast i have ever had. I had the Benedict no pancake extra sausage,bacon and hashbrown. Hashbrowns as pictured where like leaving noodles in water for a week strangely not cooked but flexible, golden crunchy on the out side and cold and eww on the inside. The coffee was warm milky tasteless.. my partner love the pancake though

Where else can you have chocolate pancakes for dinner? They are very tasty and the service was good.

I understand that Pancakes on the Rocks isnt exactly a 5 star restaurant but its certainly not worth the cost anymore. Poor food, slow service, and packed with tourists. Lots of better places around the rocks to go.

This was my second visit to Pancakes on the Rocks, The first was fairly poor, but it was busy so I gave them the benefit of the doubt. However, this time was just awful. The staff just don't care. After waiting without success, for someone to take our order (we closed the menus, pushed them away, tried catching eyes etc)... More

We had not been for many years and took the opportunity to remember old times. Service was fast food average. Food similarly. Their pancakes are still good and the best part. Servings were large and well priced. It was popular on a Sunday morning.
