“Great views and lovely food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

We had a lovely meal with a great view. One of us had the sea bass which was amazing. The other two had the ribs which were melt in the mouth. Staff were friendly and accommodating. One of us had the cocktail sex on the beach which she said was lovely.

“A cool surfers shack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

This is a fun restaurant with a surfing theme throughout.the menu is fresh and vibrant with plenty of healthy options, the salads are huge and the presentation is great. You can have drinks down stairs and food upstairs in the panoramic sea view restaurant.
Overall the service is relaxed and good and the food is good value for money.

“Great views, great cocktails, tasty food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

After a last minute decision to visit bournemouth Friday afternoon & a wonder on the beach I decided to try Hot rocks always difficult eating solo but the staff made me feel very welcome. The cocktail menu is definitely worth sampling & a good size for the money. Food was excellent really tasty I had chicken strips in a red Thai sauce with pilau rice. I would definitely return hopefully next time with friends or a partner!

“Wish we'd have left”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Arrived here on a Sunday night and were immediately asked for ID. Which isn't a problem as we are a young couple in our early 20's. The menu mis sells the food and we ordered what we thought were salads and arrived as a greasy burger. Another couple came in and they were also asked for ID and got quite offended- as they must have been late 30's. They walked out- wish we had as well!

“Little Gem in B'town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

After a long day walking up and down the beachfront, we were hungry and thirsty, and were looking for somewhere to eat. My partner found Hot Rocks, and we gave it a try. It was like being abroad, and the whole setting was great. We had a cocktail, which was great. We ordered some light bite food, and the Mexican wrap was fantastic, tasty, spicy and just enough. Reasonable prices here, and the waiter was great. The boss seemed to be walking about with a bit of a chip on his shoulder, but we had no dealings with him. I'm sure we shall be returning when we visit bournemouth again! Recommend to you, give it a go!
