Always enjoy eating here, but always feel a bit hard done by when I get the bill. Food is good, style is ye olde restaurant(ish), service is ok, and location is great for an after diner walk.

A drive from Edinburgh took us to A hidden gem of a place in Dunbar. Had a great walk along the sea path, on what was a not so nice day, but with lovely dramatic scenery, then to go into Rocks at the end of it for lunch was such a treat. We were not disappointed. We were sat by... More

My sister and I walked over for lunch after reading good reviews of this hidden, out-of-the-way place and we were not disappointed. We were seated at a perfect table by a bay window with a wonderful view of the red rocks! The service was excellent and the food was very good.

What isn't to love about the Rocks? Great service and amazing food. Staff very attentive and more than happy to accommodate the wishes of one fussy child. Heard great things about the Rocks and I fully understand why; it certainly lived up to expectations.

Squashed 6 of us onto a table suitable for 4. It was so noisy you couldn't hear the conversation. The food was okay but I wouldn't hurry back.

Very nice service. Food very good quality. Fresh tasty. Even out of season a bit still worth going. Not the cheapest but it's to be expected. Highly recommended

Our Ruby Anniversary actually fell on the 2 October 2016 and we wished a special restaurant to celebrate with friends and family therefore I phoned the Rocks where we have been many times and had no complaints and spoke to James who reserved our usual table for six. I asked him if I could bring decorations and a cake and... More
