My parents and I had a wonderful meal at The Rocks. We all really enjoyed our different dishes. My chicken salad was superb. The staff were very friendly and the services was quick. It was a very cold winters night but the restaurant was nice and warm.

This smallish restaurant provided a lovely meal for us at short notice. The food was nice and the waiting staff were friendly and helpful. A nice selection of wine was available too.

Visited tonight after making a late booking. Service was slow but we had dropped in on a very busy weekend. Menu inviting and interesting. We had the venison and fish stew. Both delicious. Wines great too. No dessert so a small tasting but would recommend even on what we sampled. Nice atmo and cheery staff.

Travelling the country on this project I am really beginning to appreciate flavour. Sure presentation counts and atmosphere and service are important - but every so often you get hit by a combination of favours that surprises and it makes a meal and a restaurant memorable. So if you are in Invercargill and need a great flavour experience, try the... More

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!
