The oysters man. They were fresh and wonderful, as well as the mussels. Though price wise, it's on the steep side but hey, it was a treat from us to our dad for Father's Day, so it was well worth it!

We recently dined here for Valentines Day and we were very happy with the food, service and views. Seafood is their specialty, but we also loved the gyoza. I would go on a nice night to take I the sunset.

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.
