We decided to have meal around 11pm in Sydney and till the time we reached city everything was closed or closing. Pancakes on the rock was open and I wasn't expecting much. But against my expectations "it was awesome, tasty and very nice". We ordered Tandoori pizza, garlic bread and devils delight as dessert. Everything was delicious, freshly prepared and... More

Pancakes on the Rocks has been a favourite place since it first opened. One thing on the menu I can really recommend is the All-Day Breakfast. Bacon, Eggs, Sausage, Tomatoes, and Pancakes - what more could you want. The staff look after you - even ask if you want your eggs runny, easy over or whatever. A great place to... More

Delicious pancakes and ribs. The portions are very generous in this restaurant. So it is too much for 3 girl to order 3 main course.

Ordered seafood crepes, absolutely no flavour, very disappointing and I couldn't finish it. I usually always finish my meal so this was unusual. The daiquiri on the other hand was amazing, props to the bartender on that night. The line for the place was out the door and around the corner on a Sunday night, so we assumed the food... More

Delicious pancakes. I ordered one seafood pancake for lunch and then treated myself to a sweet one with maple syrup and a ball of ice cream. Now I know why they are running the business for 40 years. Many happy returns.

After a week of lattes and croissants it was nice to sit down to a traditional pancake breakfast. Pancakes were very good and served quickly. Servers were accommodating and polite. Overall a good choice if you find yourself near the harbor at breakfast or when your pancake craving kicks in. They serve them all day.

We just took our family of seven for dinner. Firstly they bought out our starters out at the same time as our mains and there was not enough room on the table for all the plates. The side of hot chips came out cold. The chicken crepes did not have any real chicken only the frozen over processed type. One... More

Asked for water and that took about 20mins to come out. Ordered pancakes without cream. Only waited 60minutes before I had to ask what was happening, about 10mins later the food came out but with cream. Very frustrating, and the food was average at best! Nothing special about it!

We have tried a variety of these establishments across Australia. This particular one was a nice area and relatively nice looking. The seating area was rather dark but this was to emulate ambience. We ordered three meals, two of which were nice and as ordered however the other was burnt and rather inedible. I probably won't be coming back here... 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.
