Rock On!

A great concept where you cook your own food on a heated rock. generous portions and personalised service make this restaurant a experience to be remembered. no views but close to the beach.

We stumbled by this place a day earlier and did not go in because it was late. We got a great recommendation from a local dive guide and took his word for it. This is a self cook joint serving hot bbq-like plate and very fresh raw beef, pork or sea food for self cooking on your table. Two great... More

This place is a bit tricky to reach, but an absolute gem. Food really nice and very different, not your usual curry. I would have given it a 5 rating if service was not slow. Great place for kids as well as the place is like a pirate ship. I will definitely return there.

When we arrived we didn't feel very welcome. The place was quite full, but the staff was not helping at all to find a seats for us. We had to ask to ourselves to other customers if we could share the table. The place look like a bit creepy and scary but the food was good and the price reasonable.

In May while staying on Mahe we visited 'Maria's Rock Café' it is an amazing place in the south of Mahe, probably the most unusual place you will eat at anywhere on the island or elsewhere. Two lovely ladies, mother and daughter, prepare the food that sets a high standard in a location that is so unusual and unique. We... More

We had a few different meals, fried rice with chicken. Meat and fish stone grill, everything was fresh, tasted yum and enjoyed the atmosphere! Way better prices than a resort!
