Been here a few times now and I always feel like a few of the staff can't wait for us to leave. They seem very rushed, unorganised and underdressed. The idea of cooking your dinner on a volcanic rock seems great but we paid £24 for two chicken breasts that we had to cook ourselves? We got unlimited chips, salad... More

I have been to on the rocks on a number of different occasions, i have never been dissapointed with any meal. The steaks are the best i have ever had, unlimited chips and salad combined with friendly helpful staff makes this a must do when visiting yarmouth.

Arrived at time confirmed by restaurant staff two days previously, 6.45, only to be told we would have to hurry as they had another booking for 8.00. There were 7 of us and this was supposed to be a birthday surprise for my husband, so not a small group. Worse still the staff tried to blame us for the error... More

I can assure you that when Mrs Olga (apologies for the spelling if incorrect) booked the table with me on the previous Tuesday, she was informed that you were very welcome to have a table as long as we could have it back because...

Having booked a table for a birthday celebration/family gathering we turned up to find a piece of paper saying that the table had been booked for us but for more than half an hour earlier. This was despite a phone call from on the rocks where they confirmed the later time with us. This didn't really matter, apart from the... More

I went here with some work colleges in October this year on a recommendation and was not disappointed. The general idea is that your food comes prepared and you finish it off to your liking on the hot stone that comes with your plate. I am sure other places do this but I have not seen this before. I was... More

Super evening & the food was superb, in fact, the best steak I've ever tasted.. It was quite busy with some Christmas do's occurring but that just made it festive & jolly! Would definitely recommend. A big thumbs up!

Having spent our wedding evening at this wonderful restaurant we recommended it to visiting family for a birthday celebration. As usual the food was faultless and the waitresses polite and helpful. However our evening was completely ruined by a large party of near on 30 who were sat behind us. We found out early on that they were friends with... More
