“no longer what it used to be...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

as a local, I used to go to Fish on the Rocks and normally ordered the calamari...Last time I went the calamari was soggy and the chips not eatable..What makes it really not so nice is the smell from the fish factory next to it which sometimes stinks so bad that it is sickening.

“Fish On The Rock - ROCKS”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

A long established fish n chip take away that is worth a visit
Seagulls get the leftovers - usually only the scraps
I remember it being there when I was a child in about 1957
It seem to be very popular with the the locals as well as tourists

“Eat with the locals!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2012

You just know when you get to the restaurant it's going to be interesting as it is frequented by locals from the nearby township. The food is OK I guess, very basic fair of fish and chips, but since you are close to the sea and this is a must-have meal when you are at the coast, makes it thoroughly enjoyable.

“The scenery always breathtaking and of course the most delicious fish and chips I've ever tasted!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

When I was younger my family always went on drives around the peninsula during the holiday season and sure enough we'd always end having a quick lunch at Fish On The Rocks.it was tradition I guess.we recently went back there and with no surprise the seafood was still quite delicious!we had yellowtail and chips parcel and calamari and chips parcel.I couldn't believe tasty yellowtail is,please try it but at Fish On The Rocks of course.not forgetting to dip it in the tartare sauce which comes with it!my family will continue to go back there in the years to come not only for the great food but for lovely scenic location!
