This was my second visit to Rocky Point, but my first time to enjoy dinner. Beginning with the hostess, who made my reservation over the phone, everything was great. The food was wonderful and the view even better. I highly recommend.

We went for dinner and sunset. Did not disappoint. The setting cannot be beat. Service is quick and food is good, not spectacular. I had the half chicken, very moist, tasty. We shared a toffee pudding for dessert, yummy!

We sat outside and enjoyed the stunning views. It was foggy and a bit chilly but still a wonderful experience. The waitress and bartender were both fantastic.
