The Rocks Dining Philosophy

“Walk away with a full belly, smile and a story”

– Rocks Mantra

We believe this foundation is a combination of vibrant tastes and textures, a thoughtful beverage accompaniment, the enticing hospitable environment of a Bendigo Restaurant, and most importantly, the story you leave with.  Your story is the most exciting element because it keeps us thinking. Creating new tastes, exploring new combinations, willing you – the diner – to try them and to tell your own story.

Share your dishes, or choose your own. Enjoy something you know and love or try something new. Let us take the reins or navigate your own course. relaxed and casual or enjoy a ten-course banquet with friends and family.  Sit back, relax. let’s work together to create your story complete with great company, full bellies and a smile.

Ben, Finn & the Rocks team.
