Fantastic food

had an excellent night at the Rocks Cafe tonight. Steak cooked perfectly, juicy and tender, and the garlic prawns on rice was scrumptious...one of my favourite dishes there ... thanks Blair Tony and the crew :D

Went here for lunch with the work team and we all enjoyed our lunches. Plenty of room for a group function and speedy service. I had the veg stack with chicken and I'm still raving on about how good my meal was. Can't wait to go back!

Food was very bland, or overpowered by a low quality sauce. Expected much better for the price of dishes. Definitely not a good advertisement for Southland cuisine.

We turned up without a reservation and were seated at an 'outside' table which was kind of like sitting in a shopping mall. But it was absolutely fine. The food was superb. Very well prepared and beautifully presented.

Came here for a workmates birthday dinner. Platters were amazing, mains were even better and the service was faultless. Was a great night.

It has been a while since we have been and it was great to be back. For a midweek night it was really busy. The food was excellent if a little too generous in terms of serving size but that is only a small personal quibble. The Sicillian Fish Bowl was superb as was the venison. Great wine choice with...
