This restaurant looks like an American diner, but has not only pizzas and subs. They have lots of interesting Asian dishes, all kinds of meats and fish. Also, reasonably priced ($8-15 per meal). Food is tasty and portions are big. Servers are well trained. Overall very good experience.

The servers always get my order right and last weekend when it was pouring down hard!they made my pizza the way they like it. The prices here is fair because off the size of the dish. Nice place to chow and relax.

I had the best pizza here. I had tried pizzas at other places in Koror, but give Rock Island Cafe a thumbs up on the service and pizza.

If you want to have dinner American diner style that's the place to go. It feels like a diner and the food is decent. We had burgers, which were OK. Our waitress could have been a more friendly and attentive.

Quite a long menu of American and Asian classics. I went for a sirloin steak. It was very hard to chew. It arrived with cooked corn and rice, just served there like balls next to the steak. No imagination at all. Nice staff though.

Just visited this place last month. I tried their sausages that's supposed to be served with sauerkraut, but unfortunately it was not available. My fiance tried their set of stewed beef with rice, while her friend got the six inch pizza. For beverages, we tried their soda float, which was average. Price range is $20-$30 plus service. Restaurant service was... More

Pizza, burgers, sandwiches. The food here is your typical US fare. It's popular with the locals who want US fast food.

Food and service were, "Meh." Pros: Diverse menu. Decent wifi signal (not free). Food comes quickly. Cons: Food is okay, but not great. Service is okay by Palau standards, but not great.

We visited Palau for over a week and ate the Rock Island Cafe a few time. The staff was very friend and the food came out faster then many places on the island! It has a great atmosphere with a great fish tank. This was a great place for a budget.
