My husband and I walked into the Rock for lunch. It was about 2 pm and busy but not packed. We were seated and got menus and ordered beers. The beers didn't come and neither did the waitress to take our food order. No one looked at us for 45 minutes. It was like they were intentionally avoiding eye contact,... More

We visited here twice; once for a beer after our hike to Tortuga beach and again for lunch when we split a Peruvian quesadilla which was very good. The restaurant is a pleasantly breezy, relatively cool place to take a break.

We had no idea how good the food was going to be. My wife had probably the best tuna she has ever had. I had the mushroom chicken which was excellent. The service was fast, professional and polite. The price is very reasonable. Both dishes were $14, not including the tax and service. The location is prime, we set outside... More

What a bad service! I don't know if the waitress was tired, it was too late or what, probably just bad luck with this place. They only had tuna for fish option but the waitress didn't tell us until she brought the plates completely different from what it said in the menu. Had to ask for everything twice. And to... More
