While on vacation in Manzanillo we went to this restaurant for dinner. We were a party of 6.
The place looks new and is clean and has a very nice decor. It is on the beach with great views. The name is Rock Food but the decor is like Buddha's and Indonesian Decorations so there is a disconnect between the name and ambiance..Maybe it's just me?
We ordered drinks and our meals. 5 of the 6 meals were delivered and the 6th was MIA. When we asked what the problem was with the 6th meal the answer was I don't know. We waited approximately 10 minutes for it to arrive with no explanation or apology given. Several of us waited for the missing meal to arrive before beginning to eat.
I ordered Sauteed Shrimp. My one word description was INCONSISTENT.
I received a nicely displayed presentation with 6-8 shrimp. They were of different sizes and in different states of preparation. most all had the head of the shrimp attached, some with shells and legs on. some with no shell but legs attached, some with no legs no shells and some that weren't even cleaned (which I did not eat). It was served with a like "fried rice" and a mango salsa for dipping which made the shrimp more edible. The "Fried Rice" is also available as a main course with option of shrimp or chicken and this was ordered by one of the party too. It didn't look anything special and was the same as the rice on my plate except for some shrimp tossed in. He wasn't impressed and I'm glad I didn't order it. Needs to be taken up 2 or 3 notches to be a decent main course.
My wife ordered the Huachinango Fish which came and was quite small. An OK size for her but for a hardy eater you'd be googling where Burger King is (BTW... its about a mile or 2 down the road on the left by the Soriana Department Store)
There was live music which made the atmosphere very nice.
It was a nice evening with average food and service. Would I go back? Probably not.
