I regularly go here for breakfast as it is convenient and in a nice spot overlooking Glenelg beach. I wouldn't rave about the food quality nor the service but it is not ridiculously expensive and there are worse places I could be sitting down for...More

We stayed at the Oaks Plaza Pier for a few nights. 'The Rock' on the ground floor overlooking the beach serves breakfast for Oaks' guests. For a buffet breakfast, it costs $20 per person. For that you get the following 'hot food' - Scrambled eggs...More

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.
