We went for breakfast after our helicopter ride, and they made us feel so welcome, with their warm welcome smiles. There was waiting list, so we went into the lounge and only waited 5min before we got a table with an amazing view. Before we know it, our breakfast was there. Great staff, great food.

I rate this Restuarant overall one of the best in Cape Town. Fantastic views of Table Mountain and Robben Island as well as great sunsets over Robben Island. The Resturant is as the name suggests right in the rocks with the waves breaking meters away. The food is also top class and we both had Tiger Prawns as main course... More

The most amazing cheesecake, views and the service was really good too... and the wine thing they do with wines 'on tap' makes this really really cool!!

what an amazing view! The food was okay the chef could have added some finesse and make it more spectacular than my local fish and chips spot. Please do not take it for granted that you have been around for a while and post great pictures and tour food is below standard.

Brilliant service, excellent food, wonderful setting, unparalleled view. I just love this place. It doesn't matter whether you go for breakfast or cocktails, it is always great.

This restaurant is in one of the best locations in Cape Town and is decorated to appear to be upmarket with prices to match. Unfortunately, the service doesn't live up to these appearances. We ended up here for a mid-morning breakfast as our first choice, the nearby Onse Huisie, was packed with a long queue of people waiting. Conversely, On... More

Fantastic view of Cape Town and generally a nice venue, although the food last night left a lot to be desired. We were a party of eight and there was not one good comment about the food. My ostrich was extremely tough and the king prawns had nothing inside. Two steaks were over cooked and generally came away from the... More

My wife, brother in law, his wife and myself visited On The Rocks on Tuesday night for Monday night for dinner as we had a lovely time there about 2 years back and oh my word what a difference. We would never return again. We ordered drinks and our meals and over an hour later we still had not received... More
