Had dinner with colleagues from our local office on a Monday night -- restaurant was not very full but sill a little noisy. Food was good, especially if you are a carnivore....

Best salads and steaks ever! Never disappointed if we go there. Very well priced for the quality of food! Make sure that you book as they can get quite busy.

recommended by Rivonia B&B , we wanted an eatery with good food where we didn't have to book. Rocket was a perfect solution. ....friendly staff, good food, lovely setting. I thoroughly enjoyed the sticky pork ribs.....too much for 1 person and great for sharing.

I absolutely enjoy the Rocket. Every time I have tried in the menu is delicious, but the absolute best is the red velvet cake. I happily drive twenty kilometres just for that red velvet cake.
