    The staff were very friendly and helped to keep the ambience of a very relaxing evening. Talented chefs food was full of flavour and presentation was beautiful. Would have liked to have stayed longer but covid restrictions prevented it. Would I go back again yes 100%

    Lovely evening, great food and our waiter was excellent. We will be coming back soon ( could do with more adequate sanitiser at entrance) other than that Covid restrictions adhered to

    We had a lovely meal. Good food and drinks were fab. Staff very friendly. My only ctitism would be the toilets.. One toilet! Had to share with the men! Not good! . They badly need a refurb as floor tiles on the step were broken and missing. But I guess they must be improving the guys loo 1st. Overall a lovely evening and fab food! Would eat here again ????

    On the Rocks Torquay called me twice to confirm booking which was great. On arrival we were welcomed to our reserved table by lovely and helpful staff. The oysters, mussels, salmon pastrami and mushroom arrancini were absolutely cooked to perfection! Great chef! We highly recommend. Thank you!

    The gazpacho was like liquid velvet, the fish of the day, roasted sea bass was highly acceptable, the chocolate tart wasa poem and the blackbery sorbet divine!

    The food was without doubt very good however the dining experience was tempered by poor service. We had booked but were given a small indoor table, when we asked if we could move to a bigger outdoor table, we were informed that as I hadn't selected an outdoor table when I booked, this was not possible even though there were spare tables to accommodate this request. We spent over £90 at this restaurant but people turning up for drinks were given the better tables outside. We will not be returning, such a shame.

    Life in these Covid times makes things different. I suspect our experience would have been excellent all around in "normal" times, but having said that we really enjoyed the food.

    Had not eaten before at On The Rocks but when old friends decided to meet up, we thought we would book here on recommendation from someone else. The service was professional a d friendly, attentive staff in the restaurant and the food was excellent. 10/10 from me.

    As always, fantastic food in relaxed setting. We loved sitting outside watching the world go by! Arancini nibble and Gazpacho soup were both outstanding! Good choice of wines and service is very attentive and personal.

    Food was brilliant!! Really busy place with good atmosphere. Shame they didn't do eat out to help out but honestly forgot about that very quickly after tucking into my nduja and parmesan arancini! If you like your food this place must go straight to the top of the list for those visiting Torrquay.

    On the Rocks offered an outstanding service from beginning to end. Food tasted sensational and was very well presented. The ambience was both warm and inviting. Highly recommended, we will most certainly be visiting them again in the not too distant future.
