What a little gem! Nothing fancy , slip slops and shorts place. Small menu that is so inexpensive. Value for money and calamari, fish and prawns were delicious. Well worth a visit for a cold one.

Great food, excellent value for money. Friendly staff and great service. The grilled and fried hake is a must try as well as the fried haloumi.

We were a bit weary when cousin said we should meet at The Rock for dinner. Was very pleasantly surprised. Food was great. Portions large and atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. Had brilliant time with family. Music brought back lots of memories. Can definitely recommend this place for all ages...

The best place to find yourself on a Sunday afternoon. Really tasty food, good music and beautiful souls. A very special spot filled with laughter and music where the locals meet and welcome new faces.
