We visited this place on the back of the excellent reviews and it lived up to expectation and more. The food was incredible, it was quite clear this chef went to a lot of thought and hours of careful planning to create and perfect these dishes.

After reading glowing reviews for The Dining Room, I booked a table to celebrate my 30th wedding anniversary with my wife and our closest friends. We were certainly not disappointed! The food was exquisite and the service was excellent. A true fine dining experience. We will be back! Thoroughly recommended.

With the very many excellent reviews on trip advisor we were expecting a memorable dining experience. Well, we were certainly not disappointed. The complimentary amuse bouche dishes were an excellent start the meal. While the menu had a limited number of dishes the selection was sufficiently varied to cater for everyone's taste. The dishes were presented exceptionally well and the... More

This was our first visit but certainly will not be the last. The food was of a standard seldom found outside of the Capital but at a very reasonable price. The Chef deserves the highest accolade for being so creative yet ensuring that each mouthful is delicious. This is no ordinary dining experience yet you are able to enjoy a... More

This place is a hidden gem. This is our 4th visit and its a must every time we're in this neck of the woods. Don't be fooled by the exterior, the level of service, food and drink is on a par with the best. Be sure to book as tables are limited. You will not be disappointed. Can't wait to... More

I am not a vegetarian but I enjoy the food and always like to try the options offered as I like to get ideas for two of my daughter's who are vegetarian.So often the veggie options at restaurants lack any thought and flavour. Not here !! wonderful flavours and imaginative dishes beautifully served. Absolutely fabulous thank you.

Visited the dining room for the second time this year. It is just amazing - don't be put off by the rather odd looking exterior of the building - the food is amazing, the service is excellent - it's a great way to spend an evening in Rock. They are usually fully booked at weekends so book ahead to secure... More

Having visited Rock previously and seeing the restaurant we were keen to try it on this visit. It is an intimate restaurant, tastefully decorated. We were greeted by the restaurant manager who served us throughout with another waitress. They have the place running faultlessly. An amuse bouche was brought to the table, which were excellently made with nice flavour combinations.... More
