    The Rocks restaurant is a relaxing spot to enjoy food, conversation, and the wonderful view of the Mornington shoreline. The outdoor setting is a lovely spot, to take in the breeze and enjoy a wine or coffee with your lunch. The menu has a great deal of choice. Staff are friendly and helpful. We had a lovely lunch with friends.

    offererd water by witress, but failed to deliver until prompted again. ordered 3 glasses wine, 2 delivered, and had to ask again for the third glass. Waitress took order and failed to write it down. Fish order for small barra 350gm was replaced with barra fillet with mussels and brussel sprouts. Mussells missing. Ordered two oyster share plates. only one delivered, and probably as well as they were very old and laden with salt and were not delicious. Ordered three sticky BBQ pork ribs, and one came extremely overdone to burnt, and did not taste near as good as the others. We dined a 8.15 and the restaurant was not really full, so there was no excuse about being busy. My wife and I have dined here on numerous occasions and have found the restaurant really good, and so when my son and his wife came to visit from Tasmania, I decided to come back as it has been great in the past. We were all extremely disappointed, and now would not recommend dining here again.

    First time, last time. Placed our order and waiter verbally got it wrong (when repeating), received our order (mains) missing a dish, waited then inquired, told they would look into it, 10 minutes goes past with no update, we start looking at desert menu and place an order for desert, low and behold the missing dish appears. The Service, It felt like we were imposing , like we had dropped in on someone and they agreed to feed us (male staff that is, female staff were rather polite and accurate). The food was over and under cooked and in general unremarkable

    After a dreary start of the week, it was great to be able to have lunch at The Rocks Mornington. As the afternoon cleared we were able to enjoy the beautiful view of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. The atmosphere was excellent (great to see everyone out and about) as was the food and service. A definite highlight to our day.

    My husband and I were staying in Mornington for Easter and wanted somewhere nice to go for dinner. The Rocks Mornington came highly recommended to us. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My husband had the soft shell crab for entree and the mussels for mains which he said was delicious, nothing left on his plate. I chose the tigers prawns for entree and the barramundi for mains which was also delicious. The staff were attentive and new all about the menu. We highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to our next visit.

    I just found the staff a little inattentive so I had to go to the bar to order drinks despite trying to get someone’s attention for quite some time .. no one was looking our way… I have rated The Rocks highly in the past so maybe just a glitch this time but there seemed to be plenty of staff on board. The food was superb as usual .

    very busy Easter Sunday lunch, booked well ahead and were rewarded with a waterfront table, gorgeous view for our interstate guests. Initially service was slow, even for water. It improved later which was just as well as the table was booked for another sitting. Food was good. My market fish was pricey for a relatively simple presentation, but it was perfectly cooked and I understand that fresh fish is currently expensive. Fish and chips, local mussels and bug roll were all praised by the guests.

    We were led to our table which was nice and served by a very courteous waitress. Then someone else served us and rushed us at the beginning, next thing we were ordering fish with chips and “lettuce” only salad, not offered vegetables…the waiter said the chips were enough for two, no it wasn’t..the Prosecco and Sauvignon wine was the best part of the evening dinner…no condiment for Gory fish, my partner had a condiment for flounder..no bread was available…we were still peckish and ordered a tiramisu each! It came in a pottery cup… very trendy… Well, we smiled until we left, my son is an A La Carte chef, this was not a La Carte…

    Arrogant service with familiarity you do not wish to experience when going out for a nice and elegant dinner. As for food very average with the main course- flounder fish - had to be replaced as it was either not fully cooked or not fresh!
