On ordering our main meals, which on your menu states "all mains come with salad and chips/fries" my partner received his meal first with no chips, when he questioned it, the gentleman who brought his order out looked puzzled but did go and get a bowl of fries, then stood at the service window, and I presume he didn't know...

Our food was cold, one item was not as advertised (burger with bacon and caramelised onion came out with no bacon or caramelised onion, just relish) and we were missing a drink. We tried to get a waitress/waiters attention but they were busy then a really large group came in and they were very busy. We had to get on... More

Had lunch at The Rocks today with my family. A clean and personable cafe with a nice cosy feel. I ordered a vegan risotto cake with salad that was yum. And the kids had a Jan and cheese croissant and lolly cake which was devoured in short order. Great coffee. We just felt it was a tad pricey for what... More

Ordered the Beef Nachos and Seafood Chowder both of which came out cold. Took them back and received nothing in terms of an apology, when we received the dishes again both had simply been nuked in the microwave. The cream cheese and guacamole on the nachos then had an extra dollop on top of the microwaved original, not good. Corn... More

excellent food, environment and staff. Traveling from America, to Australia, then to New Zealand and back to Australia, this restaurant was quaint and relaxing and great food.

Went here for breakfast the morning after Mardi gras. It was busy so I do understand the slow service. But 25mins waiting in line just to order with only about 10-15 people in front of me is ridiculous! The girl on till was defiantly taking her time. When we finally got up to order I asked if they did fried... More

Great service from a cosy café. Good menu options even for the Gluten Free person, actually overall Ohakune was good for this. Great cakes and sweets, and generous portions on all.

we go here every year for 3 weeks and Mountain Rocks is our favourite place to eat. Affordable meals and really friendly service. The owner comes in each morning to make our coffee!
