This restaurant sits on a cliff above the beach and Magnific Rock. The views are amazing. Food was pretty good but not cheap. Our group had some falafel burgers with fries which were tasty while others had pasta which was pretty good. So - good food, amazing views.

Very clean and beautiful rooms. The staff are very friendly and ready to help if you need anything. I stayed in the very last rooms which can get quite hot during the day, but there's a.c. and a fan to help cool you down. I tried to cool down by taking a shower but the tap water was boiling hot. Not sure if I'm the only one that got that bit I could not get cold water.

Other than that minor detail, an overall great experience at mag rock. Views are

Situaded on top of a rock, the restaurant offers an amazing view over the ocean!
Service was very poor though. The restaurant was empty at lunch time, but rather than being welcomed with a smile, the waitresses rather play with their mobile phone... until you have to stand up and go to the bar to order something... felt like you are bothering them.. we ate lunch there and staff was never smiling nor even looking into your eyes when coming at the table.. fish and chips were ok, the chips were cold when served and very soft... smothie was great.
wouldn't go back..

Hi there,
Thank you for joining us for lunch at Magnific Rock - we love the view here too! I am so sorry that you had such an unpleasant experience with regards to service, especially during a quiet period. If you are willing to send me an email directly (at eventsmagnificrock@gmail.com) I will investigate who was working that shift and ensure the appropriate steps are taken to better train them. We are going through a management transition right now and working hard to improve our service. I will also share your feedback with the kitchen as your fish and chips should've been served nice and hot. I'm glad you enjoyed the smoothie and hope that you might join us again if you find yourself in the area.

The restaurant has a casual open air atmosphere. The memory of the view of the coast and surfers will last a lifetime. We enjoyed several breakfasts and a lunch overlooking the surf as a warm breeze blew by.

Views can't be beat from this restaurant. Food is pretty good too. Loved the fresh fruit at breakfast that comes with most orders. Pancakes were delicious too.
