This was the third time (at least) that our party had dined in this establishment and I am sure it will not be the last. We were a large party (about 12) and had booked ahead. The food and wine were excellent but the professionalism of the staff and management was particularly striking. High standards were maintained throughout, with the... More

Just always a complete delight and culinary adventure. The staff, food, wine, ambience are just perfect. Service unobtrusive but always there when you need it. Starters for our party of six included sea trout and wood pigeon; mains were cod and pork. Pudding was a heavenly honey parfait. I am not a huge honey fan but decided to try it... More

This is our third trip to The Dining Room in Rock. By far the best restaurant in the area ( including Padstow!). The food is delicious, service attentive and with unexpected extras throughout the meal. Fantastic!

Wanted to find somewhere that understands the needs of a vegetarian, not disappointed at all. Staff made my 50th birthday meal excellent. Possibly the best meal I have experienced. The service was great. The surroundings were classy and welcoming for our party of five. An excellent meal for a special occasion.

Our second evening this year. We first dined here in June and again last Wednesday. What a superb restaurant. Fabulous food and excellent service. Fred is a Michelin level chef and the lovely Donna and her two charming ladies are welcoming, warm and very professional. The best restaurant in Cornwall. W & M (Hampshire).

We went with 6 friends last week and all of us agreed it was one of the best meals we had ever had. The staff were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was so beautifully presented and the flavours were amazing. It's a small restaurant so we recommend you book in advance. Enjoy!

Just had the one meal here but can't fault the place at all. All our food wad well prepared and presented. The staff were invariably polite, efficient and helpful. There may be a slight lack of atmosphere, probably simply due to the squareish shape of the room but is of no consequence. In sum, an excellent place to dine.

Recommended by friends we were lucky enough to have the last supper of our holiday here last week. We loved everything about this lovely 'dining room!' Beautiful, restful décor, gentle buzzing ambiance of people enjoying the most spectacular food - we thoroughly enjoyed the evening and couldn't believe that there were only 2 people in the kitchen. Each dish was... More
