I think you need a bit more of a customer perspective. We booked and confirmed, and explained it was a celebratory lunch. When we arrived none of the tables on the terrace were laid for eating. We chose a table, which had two chairs (they all did) so we need another one. The waiter put it with its back to the view. It was pretty much the same from then on. The waiter missed my husband’s second drink order. My kid couldn’t have a steak knife (they’re 18). It wasn’t at all special, apart from the price.

The Rock Hotel evokes the perfect atmosphere of a genteel era where staff are both polite and respectful as they cater for all the needs of the guests. You can enjoy your intimate dining from either the restaurant or from the terrace balcony where you can enjoy the views over the Gibraltar bay and gardens. In the evenings, a cool Mediterranean breeze calms the soul as you can watch the sunset over the great massifs of the Moroccan mountains the whole experience of the wonderful hotel imbues itself in a sense of serenity and calmness.

The Rock Hotel has undergone a number of changes over the recent years. It is difficult following major changes to be able to adjust so that the standards of service and attention flow seamlessly. The expected services,attitudes of the staff and comforts remain at the previously set high levels of achievement. I have been a customer of the hotel for many years and I return often as I am rarely disappointed.I marked down the food and drink by one star because on a very warm day the cold drinks should be COLD. This was quickly rectified on request.

We booked the Champagne Afternoon Tea which we had on the terrace, it was an incredibly hot day but we were seated in the shade. We were the only people on the terrace so no atmosphere but lovely views. We ordered a vegetarian sandwich selection but this was very poor, just sliced tomato in one sandwich and green stuff in the other 2 which wasn't obvious what the green stuff was, it didn't taste of anything particularly. Our afternoon tea was delivered and then we were left alone for approx 30 - 40 minutes and nobody returned to offer a refill of our coffee and tea or ask whether everything was ok. A little while later a lovely waiter arrived and offered us refills and took some photos for us. An ok experience but not really one I would do again. No service, no atmosphere and ok food not amazing.

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.

The great thing about the Terrace, in fact about the whole hotel, is the staff, all work as a team and always appear to be happy in their work. The new menu is excellent - we as always had a brilliant evening. Thank you all so much, we'll see you soon.

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
