We had 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners there at a recent stay. They were open in Easter Sunday, which I was grateful for - nearly every restaurant in the area was closed that night. All of the food we had was very good, but the prices were high for the environment. It looks like a mid range restaurant with high... More

There is no denying that this location is fabulous. It's just too bad that the food doesn't match the view. We went the other night after the resort sent out a flyer to the locals announcing the new chef and menu. We were excited to see the change. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! Let's start with the fact that the wines are marked... More

Parking leaves a lot to be desired--drive down a narrow roadway and hope that you can find a spot. Once parked it is necessary to back out the full distance as the roadway leads to a dead end. The dining room is average but not as elegant as one would expect for such a high end resort. We had a... More

The Rockwater Resort is in a fine and lovely location. In the winter they put out a three course special for $29... We went on a Friday night and it was very busy... The restaurant got very hot after our first hour there... in fact it started to become quite uncomfortable...! The service was friendly and our wait person was... More

We had breakfast, lunch and dinner over the two days that we were there. The breakfast was the most reasonably priced but everything on the menu was a good value for the quality of the meals presented.

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
