Coffee on the Rocks is a small family run restaurant with stunning views over Walker Bay and a way better than average food offering. I is consistantly good and I recommend that you order from the daily special board which is always tasty and the offerings interesting and sometimes different to the norm. The atmosphere is congenial and one always feels welcome and at home. We are regulars just love the place on a good day.

We have visited Coffee on the Rocks a few times now and have yet to be disappointed, the views are spectacular, service friendly, food always tasty and fresh. Daily specials menu is limited both in choice and quantity available but non the less you will still get a delicious meal. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

For at least 12 years we have been visiting Coffee on the Rocks several times during our December holidays. It has never disappointed us, neither has it disappointed anyone of the many guests we have taken there over the years.
Gayle's cooking and presentation is absolutely magnificent and no better "front man" for a restaurant, than Barry! (I don't think he ever forgets a name!)
They have a well trained and friendly team who provide excellent service.
Then of course there is THE VIEW...brilliant!
The whole experience is well worth it!

We had breakfast here and were lucky enough to get a table on the balcony on a beautiful clear day. The views are stunning, the coffee great and I could also not fault the food, service or welcome we received. I had a quick look inside and it looks like it will be a very cozy place to spend a winter's day with a nice bottle of red wine. When I come back next in whale season, I will be sure to reserve my spot on the balcony early!

We have been visiting Coffee on the Rocks whenever we are in the area since it opened 12 years ago. The small selection of specials are fresh,tasty and original. Alternatively you can have a simple tremezzini or a cup of tea with a great selection of cakes. What makes Coffee on the Rocks so special is that the view is arguably the best on the SA coast. It is spectacular! In addition Barry, Gayle and their team are very relaxed and exceptionally friendly.
