About Marino Rocks Restaurant

Here at Marino Rocks Café, location, food and service combine to make a special event to be savoured. We are South Australia's best-kept secret and we invite you to find out for yourself what everyone is talking about. If you want million dollars views, fabulous food and a unique experience then we are the Café for you. Marino Rocks Café is nestled on the edge of a cliff in front of unsurpassed coastal views of South Australia. It's like an escape to a Mediterranean hideaway but only 20 minutes from the city.

Marino Rocks Café Restaurant was built by a fisherman by the name Mr Bert Fooks in 1961 and managed by his wife Mrs Rita Fooks with a group of highly skillful ladies. Mr and Mrs Fooks caught the fish and served it in small boxes with air holes pierced in the lids.

Mr Tekin Sabuncu and his wife Gulten Sabuncu purchased the building in 1993 and pictures in our Gallery show how the restaurant looked before the renovations took place in October 1999. The building re-opened in May 2000. Now, it is a two-story light creamy color resembling a Mediterranean style building. It has a courtyard downstairs and two decks upstairs. The front deck is covered by PVC blinds and side deck now has been fully enclosed with bi-fold windows to offer our customers uninterrupted views. Downstairs is an ideal place for a cup coffee and meals or to customers who have difficulty of walking up the stairs.

Our restaurant is wheelchair friendly and there is easy access direct in to the restaurant from carpark and toilet facilities are also located downstairs.
