This is a regular of mine. Its a little pricey for every day, but definitely worth a monthly treat. The fish and chips are the best on the Peninsula and the helping is so large, my wife and I usually share it, with a bowl of mussels on the side. All of the seafood is excellent - I'd highly recommend... More

We have been here twice for breakfast/brunch, the first time was so good we decided to go back. The second time was a let down ( which is a shame). The breakfast menu is limited and what... More

We stopped in at The Rocks on a trip to Mornington and had a delicious lunch in great surroundings. The restaurant caters for more formal inside dining or - our choice - casual dining/lunching on the enclosed deck which offers magnificent views of the harbour and jetty. The menu is extensive, offering a variety of different dishes - mainly seafood... More

We went there after a long day trip so we were all so hungry. The view is good and the seatings are not too crowded. At first we were all impressed. When I looked at the menu , I found the chef try to put some Asian elements in the cooking method, like steam seafood with soya sauce, vinegar, steam... More

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.
