Insider Tips

  • There is a sommelier at hand, to help you pair your grills from the extensive wine menu
  • The rib-eye and T-bone steaks are probably the best you will get in the city. Unless you are keen on ruining a good piece of meat – it is probably a good idea to let the chef play with the lava rock
  • All said and done, this is definitely one of the top contenders for modern fine dining (and steaks) in the city. Chef Prakash’s commitment shows as he hops around tables, seeking feedback. Watch out for On the Rocks

Critic Rating

Amit Speaks Writer & Journalist


Glimmering chandeliers and starched table cloths cut through the plush piano-black décor at the two-levelled On the Rocks. The lower lounge is for chit-chat over wine-paired small plates, before you climb up for serious dining. Indeed, you must understand the gravity of the situation when they caution you to not touch the heated lava rocks. After you select your choice of protein (there are some fancy cuts here), the tabletop DIY comes as a set meal including soup, sides and a dessert. On the Rocks takes its á-la-carte fine dine options with unusual gravitas for Chennai, however, despite the world-class produce, the dishes lack pizzazz. Recommended dishes are the baked camembert and the flambé crème brûlée.

Great enjoyable experience

Exceptional food, lovely place. We had a family dinner there last night. The Duck Starter and the Cheese Salad were just mouth watering - sort of to die for. We followed it up a a pumpkin saffron soup. For main courses, we had the fish dory and a lamb rump, both just followed in the same category of could not be better, it is so good. The semifreedo dessert was really nice too. Thanks to some exceptional food recommendations from Krishnan who helped serve us and from Chef Deva and other Chefs.

Best collection of wine in city

This place is a hidden gem! The unique concept and decor makes it a fabulous setting for romantic dates. The sommelier have such knowledge about the stock and origins of the wines and they pair it with melting in mouth stakes. Never miss a chance. You will love the place and the service.

I wrote a review on Zomato too. This place still does not live up to the hype/menu

1. My friend and I ordered veg. lasagna and polenta (this is visit #2) 2. Lasagna: Pasta was overcooked - not el-dente. Cheese was basic parmesan (I expect an aged parmigiano-reggiano cheese at this price level) 3. Polenta: My pet peeve is when the menu says one thing, and plate has something different. The menu said "wild mushrooms" - this one had el-cheapo cultivated button mushrooms (masquerading as wild mushroom) 4. Beer: Not bad. Pricey (ordered a pitcher) - not hoppy at all, but tolerable 5. Wines: I am from California. Was offended to see a $6/bottle Beringer marked at INR 15,000 (that is $200+ USD). It should have had one less zero Bottom-line: Bye. Once bitten, twice shy

Best Service Ever!

My partner and I were staying at the Crowne Plaza for 5 days and ended up dining here 3 of those nights (despite there being several restaurants to chose from)! The service was absolutely fantastic, as was the food! They catered extremely well for my gluten free dietary requirements and went above and beyond to ensure I was happy with my food. Krishnan especially was the perfect host and a delight to converse with, writing us a list of places we must visit after we asked for his recommendations on what we should see. On our final night we were surprised with a special cocktail and a ‘bon voyage’ cake which meant the world to us. Sad to say goodbye and would recommend On The Rocks to everyone!

I was here as well when I stayed in Crowne Plaza. Was really glad that I had an opportunity to taste the superior quality food In Cappuccino, Dakshin. If you’re visiting Crowne Plaza, you just Cost these restaurants without fail.

About On The Rocks , Crowne Plaza Chennai Adyar Park

Chennai has come a long way where fine dining is concerned. With the influx of five star properties, the gastronomy of the city has gone under a huge transformation. You can now dine in style, surrounded by glamour and finesse. These high end establishments have become highly sought after by the locals who have developed quite a refined palate over the years. Chennai is waking up at last to the kind of dining usually practised in other metropolitan cities. Stating the perfect example of such high class dining is a fabulous restaurant called, ‘On The Rocks’, of Crowne Plaza hotel in Austin Nagar, Alwarpet. It is one of the top dining destinations in the city due to its spectacular décor and even better menu. The place is class apart from your usual posh eateries of five star hotels. Majority of the clientele is upper crust with smattering of businessmen, couples, corporates and foodies.

On The Rocks is made for those who have a taste for fine things in life and know a good thing when they see one. The restaurant is visually spectacular and keeps a stunning décor that might seem intimidating in first glance. The ambience is distinctly masculine and earthy, due to the presence of a gigantic ceiling to floor wine library that dominates the place. If you happen to know your wines, then you have come to the right place. On The Rocks is a wine connoisseur’s paradise. The place is split onto two levels. While below is little less formal and is fashioned in such a way that you can sit over a bottle of wine and small plates for hours. For serious fine dining, move upstairs.

On The Rocks keeps a Continental and European menu. The restaurant only does dinner service so keep that in mind. Begin with scrumptious delicacies like, grilled jumbo prawns, tex mex tofu finger, hoisin glazed chicken winglets, grilled garden green vegetable kebabs, lamb gallet spiced with anise, balsamic cured Portobello mushroom, tuna sashimi and creole spiced chicken skewers. The main course section is a heady combination for grilled food and lovely exotic delicacies. Try out, brown onion & potato gnocchi, grilled halibut fish, celeriac & mushroom cannelloni, pan seared lamb chops and grilled wild forest mushrooms. You can even pick a nice cut of meat or seafood and pair it with a sauce of your choice. Though expensive, On The Rocks surprises you with its elegance and cool sophistication.
