No mention of the closure on the website or facebook page. Call ahead to be sure the restaurant is open. We drove all the way there after looking at the website and facebook page to find the restaurant closed for reno's.

There aren't many fine dining options on the Sunshine Coast, so we were happy to stumble across Rockwater's restaurant. Beautifully situated, with a view like Tofino (without the long ferry ride/drive). Very friendly and helpful service. Flatiron steak was excellent, in particular the fabulous and complex gravy. Unfortunately the ahi tuna didn't measure up, and was more medium/welldone than seared.... More

My husband and I stayed at Rockwater in July 2016 and were a little disappointed with the hospitality. The view was absolutely incredible, arguably even better than the pictures. And the room was small but clean and cozy. All common areas (pool, restaurant, dock, etc) were run down and looked like they needed to be cleaned and/or repaired. We asked... More

The service was excellent, the portions just right, the menu options were varied including an excellent vegetarian choice. Drinks on the patio overlooking the water followed by 2 hours of leisurely dining. The price is on the high end for the sunshine coast but the food was worth it. a good selection of appetizers and main courses including lots of... More

For the mains we had Sweet Corn and Ricotta Ravioli, Palmer Ranch Organic Beef Tenderloin and Chinook Salmon. The mains only further... More

Very expensive to eat here. Food was ok but not fantastic in our books. Had to wait for our supper the one night for a long time. But restaurants in that area are limited - not many - so be prepared to drive to Sechelt or Ruby Lake if this isn't your thing.

We only stayed one night at the Rockwater Resort and had dinner & breakfast there. I will review the accommodation separately & only the restaurant here. We made a late booking for dinner as we discovered the only other option in the near vicinity was the Secret Cove Marina (which was completely booked). May I first say that the restaurant... More

Rock water Secret Cove is a great location with a nice South Westerly view, which provides great water views and sunsets. The food is good, perhaps a bit expensive (and not a lot of moderately priced options at dinner). The Sea Asparagus was a great 'local touch' to the ravioli. The wine list is more extensive than it needs to... More

My wife and I had a 2 night stay at this hotel. The room was quite small and the bathroom particularly cramped. The restaurant was good and there are nice views over the cove. Unfortunately when we sat by the good sized pool we were disturbed by intermittent noise from building works going on.
