We loved our seafood curry, we stopped by for a quick lunch before work. The Manager Andre was so friendly and made us feel so welcome. We will definitely be back, next time when we have more time.

We really enjoyed our lunch at On The Rocks.

Firstly it has the iconic view of Table Mountain, Table Bay and Robben Island. It is as the name suggests right on the rocks and the sight and sound of the waves were breathtaking.

The food was wonderful. I really enjoyed the Mussel starter and my Cape Malay Seafood curry. My companion enjoyed her paella. Both had very generous amounts of fish.

Service provided by Lica was first class and Manager Andrie seemed to really care that we enjoyed our meal.

It's closing in June 2019.for a month for refurbishment.

Booking on line is easy.

Only issue is I understand parking can be problematic but it was fine for us.

A drive to Bloubergstrand ended in having lunch at On the Rocks. Seating is available outside on the seafront where the tide swirls in, spraying over the rocks or indoors. We chose an indoor table at the window as it was a cool cloudy ⛅️ day. Perfect view of the beach and the sight of Table Mountain in the background makes it a lovely spot.
The menu is a great indicator of careful planning. Not vastly long but not simplistic either. Something for everyone here. I chose the seared salmon which was accompanied by several vegetables, each one perfectly prepared and delicious. The salmon was perfect. One of the best salmon dishes I can remember having. My husband had the paella, also very happy with his meal which contained a good number and size of prawns as well as calamari and mussels. Flavour amazing.
We’ll be back after your June renovations...
Thank you ☺️ for friendly efficient service and to the chef behind the scenes - kudos to you.

This was a great spot for lunch and a few drinks.

We sat out on the deck area where you have the most stunning views of Table Mountain. The service was excellent and our waiter made sure our drinks were replenished at all times. The food was pleasant and the menu was pretty good with lots of choice.

The most beautiful views from this restaurant
