2015 & 2016 R&C SAVOUR AUSTRALIA™ AWARDS FOR BEST SEAFOOD RESTAURANT IN VICTORIA & TASMANIA

Established in 2001 by the De Santis Family after 30 years of history in various restaurants on the Mornington Peninsula, the rocks offers a unique fresh air, waterfront dining experience for the whole family to enjoy.

Being positioned on the waters edge, the rocks is primarily a modern seafood restaurant. Having said that, it also offers an array of non seafood and vegetarian options along with light lunch alternatives.

The Rocks specializes in live seafood.

With a pantry so diverse on its alluring doorstep, being the Mornington Peninsula, and a team that strives to extract its fruits, it is no wonder its annual reviews and recommendations in various media for the past 16 years, along with the support of its loyal customers, has led the rocks to become a recognized institution for fine food.

There are two separate dining environments: the dining room and the covered and heated deck. Both offer the same menu, both offer unique but different atmospheres.

Reservations can be made for the dining room any time of the day, whereas the deck can only be reserved at dinner. Our day trade is active, which allowing our tables to rotate and accommodate customers on a walk in basis.

The Rocks partners with the Mornington Yacht Club in delivering food & beverage requirements for a private MYC function room. A world class facility for all to enjoy.

We look forward to serving your needs and offering you and your families an environment to celebrate life.
