“Beware the bar staff!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

I have been to Rock Cafe numerous times over the years and can honestly say this is the first time the bar staff have tried it on! Twice they tried to short change me when paying with a 50 Euro note on separate occasions and when i pulled them up on it both times they just went straight to the till without even checking with me and gave me the notes! Obviously know what they're doing and trying to bolster their wages by ripping off their customers! Makes you wonder how many people they hope just pocket the change without checking so they can divvy out their extra's at the end of the night.
Good music and the band are very good just CHECK YOUR CHANGE!!!

“Great house band - excellent musicians!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Found this bar on our first night and probably went in for drinks and to listen to the music 6 or so times over a two week holiday.

The house band are superb, from Italy, Spain and Chile, they area all superb musicians and work really well together. The service is great on drinks and you dont need go to the bar, the waitresses make sure you can order when you need to without pushing you to keep ordering quickly.

We had food one night, just a snack. The grilled king prawns, a portion of chips and the chicken quesadilla, all good, by no means the best food in town but the atmosphere and music almost makes that irrelevant, we didnt go for dinner, just for a late evening snack.

The cocktail menu was good but i didnt find them to be very strong (and a tried a variety of drinks). they were €6 each.

Agree with other reviews that the Reggae night is superb, the singer is very energetic and a wonderful performer. The house band also did a Blues evening (as there was a Blues festival in town one weekend), that music really suited the band and they put on a fab performance.

Despite the band being excellent i did find the music a bit repetative night after night, but not enough to drag me away, so that definitely says something positive. I would definitely go to this bar again, maybe the band just need to expand their song list.

I would say the competition for this bar is The Corner Rock bar a few doors down and while that is also a good bar, the house band at Rock Cafe are far superior and give a better show.

Thank you very much for your review, and I hope the next time I have better cocktails, we always try to innovate to achieve better results in the cocktails and food.

“It's a bar not a place for food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

Went here on hol and the food was very poor steaks were very chewy and cold and the cheese burger was uneatable, no one asked how our meal was apart from the guy that try's to get u in even then that's when we we walking out the place and he only said sorry, considering the plates were still full of food the waitress never took any notice at them and just took them away . Ok entrainment for having a drink but nota place for food

“Wouldn't call it a 'Rock' Cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We went here with high hopes, especially as every time we passed it was always really busy. The cocktails we ordered were really good, the best we had during our whole holiday. What let it down was the music, it was very tame, slow, soft 'rock' if you can call it that; the band didn't have any oomph about them which was very disappointing.

“argh - awful....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Perhaps it was a bad night but nether the less, after 13 years of going to the island and our first visit to this place NEVER AGAIN.

1st issue was being on a timer when ordering.......rushed even before eating was not a good start.
2nd the food came, oily and luke warm.....and some dishes missing.
3rd when questioned on the missing food, the grumpy older waiter said no problem I will get it, it never came....
4th When we again questioned the missing food, we said no point it coming now, as the accompanying dishes were cold and half ate, by now the experience getting worse.

They did offer a 10% discount, but based on one of us not eating a full meal as it did not appear and the food being luke warm, the 10% discount simply wiped out the cost of the food we did not receive so didn't really leave the "they are trying" feeling it could have done.

Compared to Corner Rock, a similar style place close by, they have a lot to do.....poor service, poor food.
