Bird Rock is a family-friendly, community feel restaurant and bar which has been a local hangout in Torquay for generations. Offering vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, our dumplings and bao are a crowd favourite. Along with this, our extensive cocktail menu and local beer selection perfectly suits our outdoor dining, lively nightlife, and Jan Juc's beach and surf culture.

    Great food, amazing space and cool bar. But doubles as a sports bar on Saturday night so very noisy. Not appropriate for a dinner with a friend if you want to hear what they are saying. Otherwise great though!

    Excellent service, very quick and attentive. Needed the fire to be a little more pumping on a cold night but we loved the food and the cocktails. Also would be good to have a few more options on the kids menu. But overall the menu was great I loved the share options with the dumplings and the noodle salad as the highlights.

    Walking you feel the vibe, loved the music low to medium light. Modern Wall Art by local artists, a discreet screen with local surfing on at the time. Attentive knowledgeable staff who could recommend meals for dietary requirements. Knew their wines when I asked about the flavour. Delicious! Nothing a problem. Different modes of seating. Wheelchair access into Restuarant on one level. Toilets unfortunately down stairs for ladies not sure for men

    Usually excellent food. But today our appetiser cam out after all the other food. The dumpling soup tasted like it just had soy sauce poured over it. We said something to the waitress but she didn’t seem to care. As I said they are usually great but not sure it they have lost their chef or something

    Happy to find this gem of a restaurant! Really delicious Asian fusion food and amazing cocktails and beers on tap. Our party of seven, including our nine year old, really enjoyed the food. The service and ambience in the restaurant was also great! Will certainly be back next time we visit Jan Juc.

    Great Food & Service. All 10 of our friends highly delighted by the quality and amount we were served. (We opted for their “Let us bring it on” instead of individual menu ordering and what a feast was had by all. It was our shout and the final price was, as always, very palatable.

    We have eaten at Bird Rock a number of times and it never disappoints. We treat ourselves with a cocktail to begin with and share a number of dishes that are mainly vegetarian. Service is always quick and Ollie our waiter was fabulous. The price is great value for money. We will be back soon, no doubt.
