    Went in with high expectations from others reviews. My mushroom dish was lovely, my husband wasn't keen on his beef cheeks. It was a bitterly cold night (by Bokarina Beach) and we sat outside with no wind protection - so be warned , food will go cold very quickly if you're not inside. Saw one couple get a blanket from their car to wrap around themselves.

    Great, classy venue for Cairns. Rooftop view and setting is amazing. Food is delicious and top notch. Great date and anniversary or special occasion venue. Hands down one of Cairns' best. Could do with more chaired seating. Has lots of high stools and tables, which is nice but can be a little uncomfortable. Staff are friendly and warm. They are attentive when they are not too busy. Had to wait over 40 mins for 2nd round of drinks and additional order of meals and then after a few reminders. I would dine again.

    Entering via a lift to Level 12 in the tower, Rocco has an ambient atmosphere great for couples or a group. Live DJ started around 9pm on a Saturday night. Highly recommended for a great feed and night out.

    Cocktail menu was great and food to match. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the best view of Cairns from the viewing deck. Our waiter was knowledgeable and fun - he helped us have a great night.

    4.5/10

    Unfortunately it was a busy period and they seemed to be under staffed. It took half hour for a cocktail to be made after placing the order and they forgot the other drink which was a beer on tap when the cocktail finally arrived. The lights were projecting heat which made it uncomfortable to sit under. Due to the poor service we didn't stay as planned and left. The view is 10/10 and I'm sure if they had more staff it would of been a better experience.

    My wife and I celebrated my birthday and were suggested to come to Rocko’s. More than pleasantly surprised. Warm welcome, very nice service and friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The best Churros I ever had in my life. Highly recommendable- highly…. Almost forgot…. THE outlook…

    Overcrowded for the size of the place. Staff cannot cope. If you're a young person who enjoys cocktails and noise this is the place for you. My expectations of a top class quiet meal were obviously misplaced.
