“Great food and wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2011

We enjoyed an evening at Rocco. A well thought-out menu, drawing heavily on fresh, local ingredients, including some of the best mussels we'd ever tasted.

“1st class service complimented by exquisite cuisine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2011

Rocco is a Mediterranean styled restaurant offering guests the choice of tapas to share or a main meal.

I've been twice now, the first time I took my mum there and we basically ordered the entire tapas menu and shared it between us. The food and service was great!

I recently went back with my partner and we both enjoyed the scotch fillet steak, which as my partner said "one of the best steaks he has ever had".

I've also been there for after work drinks with my colleagues and the atmosphere is great - you can choose to sit outside on a nice summers day or by the fire inside.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

“Rocco experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2011

Really disappointing. Fantastic ambience encouraged us to stay after we had acoulpe of drinks.. However my main meal of staeak and vegies etc was disappointing. I could accept the small portions but the vegetables were quite hard and undercooked. The steak was tough. I complained which is unusual for me and to be fair they replaced my meal with a new one. Although the veges had improved I again found the steak too tough to consume so I left the majority of it. Service was good but I felt I should have some kind of reimbursement or an apology or discussion with the chef. I must assume the normal chef was not here. Vastly overpriced for what I got> Would NOT recommend!
