Treat yourself to a great salad, fantastic ribbs or fresh salmon. The staff is very attentive, and the service is quick. The restaurant has a nice garden.

We totally enjoyed our meal at the rock. Everything was great. I had the trout which was cooked to perfection and my wife had ribs. She ate all of them which is not like here.

I have eaten here twice and both times the food has been horrid. The ribs are way to sweet and not at all good. Everything else we have eaten here has been very disappointing. Avoid.More
