After a beautiful seafood lunch at The Rocks one Sunday, we both instantly knew we wanted to have our wedding reception here. We knew we wanted a 'cocktail' style wedding, full of good food, great drinks and dancing. As soon as we were greeted by warm staff members and an easy to understand function package brochure- it confirmed our initial... More

We were in Mornington on the weekend for a mini break and headed down to The Rocks for brunch. The brekkie menu is tight...not overblown with options but evetything we ate was delicious and cooked perfectly. The juice was fresh, the coffee good and the view spectacular. The only thing which took away from the experience (and I have to... More

We recently held our Company Xmas party at The Rocks and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Every meal that came out was cooked to perfection and everyone complimented of how fresh and tasty it was. The view was spectacular (weather behaved itself) and our wait staff "Michael" made the night flawless. We were all very impressed and a big thanks to... More

I returned to the Rocks after a disappointing experience a few months ago. My friend lives locally and wanted to go. We had a casual lunch and I was pleasantly surprised. I had the okonomiyaki Japanese pancake which was good except for the kimchi - not sure why combine a Korean dish with a Japanese. My friend had the lobster... More

Fantastic location and great views however this is not enough to disguise the overpriced breakfast wiht limited choices. No mushrooms or hash browns!!! For the inflated pricing I would expect table service for ordering. Plenty of other yummy places to have breakfast in Mornington.

Attended a birthday party celebration here. The function space was great for 60 people and the balcony and views were just perfect. Food was much better than expected and the bar staff were great. Waiters were attentive and seemed to be mingling with trays of food most of the night. Calamari, meatballs, fish, chicken mini tacos all very good. Also... More

Limited menu, I asked for fish with minimal bones but got plenty and the food was over priced. Good location though

Dinner on Friday night with our 5 grandchildren. The waiters were very patient while our grandson made our order in Italian. Food was plentiful and delicious. Our grandchildren enjoyed the meal. On busy times service can be a bit slow

Had a great dinner here a few nights ago. Was really feeling like sashimi and this one didn't disappoint. The barramundi special was probably the best fish dish I've ever had, was perfectly cooked with crispy skin and the eggplant purée was lovely. The roast duck bao was nice but a little more duck in there would have been a... More

Description
The Rocks offers the mornington peninsula a unique fresh air dining experience with an absolute waterfront setting.Two separate dining environments, the dining room and the covered deck, provide the perfect location to celebrate life. Our seafood focussed menu offers flavours from across the world and whereever possible our seafood is selected following the principles behind sustainability. Put simply, the fish on your plate, be it farmed or wild caught, has had researched minimal impact upon fish populations or our wider marine environment. A move we hope you support. The Rocks is fully licensed and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days per week throughout the year.Reservations can be made for the dining room (for any time of the day) or for the deck (for dinner only), and are advised.
