We had a fabulous meal, so much detail which went into the way it was cooked and presented., delicious. Cocktails were excellent, and the service from the staff, which was so welcoming, and efficient, added to make the whole meal, so special. Many thanks to the team at On The Rocks. Recommend 100%.

Children’s meals were way too Small. All our children had to be fed again afterwards. Tan out of an adult main meal and were only told as they were about to bring other meals out. Slow service for drinks too. Worst place we are in Torquay on our holiday.

Excellent service. Bit limited in choice for a non fish and fussy eater (especially as there were no burgers available). Perhaps a plain steak would be good. Thanks

Recommend by a friend, first impressions were of a boozy burger joint given the number of lads drinking and eating burgers! However the menu is really quite varied and the fish dishes were excellent. Being able to taste the wine was great as was being able to order a 500 ml carafe. But the food was the highlight, the fish cake dish was top notch. The local fish of the day cooked to perfection. My only suggestion would be to have a warm desert, especially with outdoor dining here to stay!

Excellent setting, with the exception of the parfait which did taste a bit odd the food, drink, atmosphere and service was excellent, would strongly recommend it.

Great food and service. The waiters were really nice and working very hard as the restaurant was so busy. I would suggest some more vegan and vegetarian options, but the ones I had were delicious.

I was so excited to finally be able to visit, that I ate on Saturday evening with my sister and for Sunday lunch with my wider family. It meant I managed to eat my way through a fair chunk of the menu. It was delicious. My top tip, if you like a snack before your Starters / Mains, order the pork belly and watermelon nibble when you sort your drinks!

My mum and I visited a few days ago, and the service was incredible. The waiters couldn’t do enough for us. The new layout is amazing and the food was out of this world. We cannot wait to come back!

Food and cocktails are amazing. The heaters outside really do keep you warm and service is great. Almost feels like you are abroad and not in Torbay when you're sat looking out at sunset

A lovely place to celebrate my birthday. Food was great as was the service. Despite Covid restrictions On the Rocks was busy and provided great value for money as well as a great view across the bay
