Thank you so much for another wonderful experience at the Rock Hotel. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming and did all they could to make my wife's significant birthday one to remember. Eating on the Wisteria terrace is a joy (though the sun is a bit powerful in July!) and we are pleased to say that it also made a lasting impression on our daughters' boyfriends who all also had a wonderful time. We look forward to coming back again soon - Thanks

Booked Sunday Lunch through the hotel website, but it wasn’t available, nor had it been for months apparently, which was disappointing as this was the sole purpose of our booking. Our visit was during the C-19 pandemic, which obviously affected how busy it was, hence the unfortunate low rating for Atmosphere. However, I would still recommend the hotel restaurant, and would definitely return if ever I was visiting Gibraltar again.

My wife and I visited your iconic hotel for afternoon tea on Monday 10th March. We had previously stayed here eleven years ago, and wanted to visit during our mini break. There was an initial issue regarding the time of our agreed booking time, but this was quickly resolved and we enjoyed some drinks on the lovely Wisteria Terrace. The afternoon tea was delicious, and the service was absolutely fantastic. Particular thanks must go to Abdul, who has worked there for over 40 years, and who looked after us brilliantly. Nothing was too much trouble, and he was the perfect host. Also to Tachefin, who was equally brilliant in his welcome, and took loads of photos of us enjoying our time there (we'll upload these to your Facebook page). Pleas pass on our sincere thanks to these two staff members-they made our visit so memorable. We loved the hotel, and it brought back many happy memories to us both. We will defiantly return to your glorious hotel in the future.

Me and my partner came for her birthday, which I briefly mentioned in my reservation. Service was impeccable and speed of food being served was impressive. Both the hostess and the waiter worked incredibly well as a team and really made us feel welcome. Above all that, we were suprised with a birthday desert and the waiter sang happy birthday which was a truly nice touch. I'm going to leave a trip advisor review too. The only thing we thought could improve was the choices of cocktails. We thought the majority of the choices were too sweet for our liking but that is just us, and otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed my champagne cocktail. I would like to say a big thank you to the team for making it special for my girlfriend

We booked the champagne afternoon tea, and it was a lovely experience after our wedding earlier that day. We could not fault anything about it, absolutely delicious sandwiches, divine scones and deserts. Maybe slightly overpriced, but an experience we shall never forget. Many thanks to the very helpful staff.

When we arrived staff had no knowledge of our booking and didn’t seemed bothered. There was then a huge discussion of the type of tea we wanted as the waiter seemed confused. Once sat at a table we were left for quite a while and we noticed that the table we’d been sat at had a very dirty table cloth. The afternoon tea itself was ok but the sandwiches were only 1 filling per sandwich so you had to cut them in half in order for both to try them. The cakes were the same which became a messy process. They were also very sweet. The scones were really nice though. Also the balance of sandwich to cake was wrong. Should have been more sandwiches and less cake as with the scones too it was all a bit rich.

The food was amazing and the presentation as well. Our food came quickly and the coffee jar was quite big, even for two (what is great). The only "issue" is that we thought the price £17 was per tray, but apparently is per person (what doesn't make much sense, cause if you're going alone I doubt you can manage eat all the tray by your own) and the tray is for minimum 2 and none of the foods came repeatedly, what would make more sense once we are paying per two.

Thank you for Amanda, for taking the time to leave a review and to give us some feedback. We're delighted you enjoyed the food, and hope to welcome you back in the near future for another delicious experience! The tray is only available for 2+ people and is priced at £17 per person. Please accept our apologies for any confusion regarding this. Once again thank you for your feedback and for choosing The Rock Hotel. Kind Regards, The Rock Hotel.

We booked for afternoon tea for new year's eve + confirmed the reservation email sent by the hotel sent 2 days before. When we arrived at the appropriate time, we were told there was no reservation on the system. Whilst we were told afternoon tea could be provided - I had grave concerns that it would be rushed + certainly the scones/cakes would not be fresh. The waiter didn't disagree with me plus also the hotel was putting on a nye dinner adding to our concerns.There was no real apology for their mistake, again very disappointing but not wanting to totally ruin the start of our evening we decided to have kir royale in the bar where we were served flat champagne so had to ask for that to be changed. So overall I cannot honestly give a good review of our visit as it was most unsatisfactory with very poor customer service.
