Delicious eggs & bacon. Yum! Never crowded. Espresso coffee ok. Service a bit confused - many of the tables and chairs were dirty

I only had soup and husband had a salad so hard to really judge much of the food but what we had was delicious. Wish I had more time to try more of their food.

Had breakfast during a 2 day stay due to convenience. Service ok, food ok, but nothing to write home about. Expensive for what you get, and as others are saying, no coffee included. Its a pity as they have a spectacular venue with great views.

The food at the Rocks is good however it lacks the ambiance it needs to take it to the next level. It's crying out for mood lighting and candles. The service is good, presentation of food fabulous.

whilst the service was great, the decor and food quality was below expectations for a fine dining restaurant. We'd expect white tablecloth not plastic tablecloth. Food was average for the price. Overall disappointing.

We went last night and I thought it was brilliant Service was great and the food was just beautiful Steaks are cooked to perfection. Wine list was full with a large selection and not too over priced.
