“Very Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

While in Rivonia with a large group we came across Rocket while trying to find a place to eat. There was a variety of food with something for everyone. The food tasted great and was served pretty quickly for such a large group.
I would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

I ate at rocket with friends to celebrate a special event. The food was excellent with a varied menu to choose from. Service was very good. Wine menu could be a little more varied for white wine drinkers ordering by the glass but other than that it was an excellent evening.

“Just excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Found by looking at trip advisor - staying nearby on business.
Got a cab over there - proper cocktails, great food , excellent wine by the glass.
Desert was the weakest part but all in all fabulous.
(went back the second night - street parking outside and seemed safe)

“Rocking Rocket!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Our Local pub, restaurant and hang-out. Been supporting them from their opening and would highly recommend a drink after work, dinner, lunch, heck, even a drink before work social meeting place! Their food, servive and friendliness of staff enhances the overall quality of the place!

“Impresses every time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

I have been eating at Rocket for the past 1.5 years and I am impressed each time I stop by. The staff is amazingly good and friendly. The ambiance is stunning, dimly lit, and cosy yet chic. The food is die for, I LOVE LOVE LOVE their Olive Buckets, its the best. The steaks are stunning and perfectly done. One of my favourite restaurants of recent.

Love this place :)
