Everytime a friend or family visits Sydney and asks what are must go to places, I'll always send them to Pancakes on the Rocks. First time I went there I was blown away by the menu. Delicious looking crepes and pancakes that have both a savoury and sweet twist. They are open 24/7. Best to call and ask what are... More

Going solo mission to dinner you would expect to have quick and friendly service. That was not the case here. Took almost 40 minutes to get a table. Once I sat down I was put in a back corner like a baby <--Insert movie reference here. Waitress was not interested in being there which made it a little awkward. I... More

We went there to grab a quick breakfast before heading for some sightseeing. We ordered 4 breakfast meals and one regular (Ceasar salad for the non breakfast food eater). The hash was hard fried meaning you really needed your knife to get through it and the scrambled eggs were paste like. Overall not great and the cheapest coffee on the... More

We visited pancakes on the rocks and while the food was nice the service was disappointing , we had eyes rolled and snarley voices and all in all an experience that has made us decide to not return again .

Two words - banana pancakes... yum. This is a great late night place to come for dessert. I've never been here for dinner so can only comment on the pancakes.

Had heard so much about these pancakes that we had to try it for ourselves when visiting. Nice easy walk there from our hotel. They were busy but able to seat us within 5 minutes. What a choice of pancakes. Ended up with the strawberry ones -absolutely delicious. Is on the top of my list to revisit on our next... More

The food is delicious and so much of it, freshly cooked and served piping hot. The service is prompt and attentive. The place is buzzing and you may have to wait for a table. Wait, it is worth it.

This place was close to our hotel and was open 24/7 so what a delight to enjoy breakup at all hours. The pancakes are so fluffy, big and moist they were just yummy. Enjoyed the eggs also bit some of the group had eggs Bennie and they thought it tasted different so they might make the sauce a bit different... More

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
