It's not a cheap restaurant but it's worthwhile going there. If you can get in because the place is packed always. But once you are in you will see a beautifull restaurant with a metropolic ambiance which serves good food and whines. You definitely want to go to this place. Their bar is nice too.

My partner and I ate here as had been given a meal for two as a gift. It really was wonderful food and a lovely setting - an open kitchen so fascinating to watch the chefs at work! We both had steak and I really think it was the best steak I've ever eaten. The side of roast potatoes was... More

I have with my friends and family been here many times since it first opened. Best service, incredible variety in the menu, extremely fresh, everything on the menu is tasty especially the sides, stunning room, comfortable seats, what more can I say but Neil Perry, you always deliver!

I hadn't been to Sydney in about 20 years and remembered fondly the original Rockpool restaurant. It still exists, albeit in a different location, but has now gone entirely to tasting menus. We decided we preferred a la carte dining and chose to try the Rockpool Bar and Grill, since it was near our hotel. Walking into the restaurant, I... More

Rockpool Bar & Grill offered one of the best, if not the best, steak I ever had. On top of that, it served definitely the best Pavlova ever - a different take on the standard, they incorporated the cream into the meringue, which was a great idea - very fluffy.

I have eaten at Rockpool several times in Melbourne (at the Crown complex) and I'm a big fan. This time, in Sydney, I was by myself and felt like a good juicy steak so decided to try the Sydney location. Big mistake...I ordered the Rangers Valley grain fed Rib-eye (dry aged for 35 days) at $75 and it was a... More

We arrived a little early to get a drink in the bar first. Nice atmosphere and good tasting proper made drinks. The resturant had style, but not to stiff. Loved it's darkness. The food was very good and came in large portions. We had to share the desert. It is a little expensive, but still i would say good value... More

A nice dinner, but we jokingly took points off from the get-go. E.g. The waiter miswriting an order (at least he promptly came back to check), then the Sommelier knocked over our bottle of wine (disaster averted as it was now decanted). Then the mains were given to the wrong person - of all the things to get wrong this... More

My husband and I had a lovely meal here with some friends last week. As always the food was divine and the service was exceptional. I had oysters to start which were good and I had the seafood stew for main which i really enjoyed. My husband always has the steak which was perfectly cooked. For dessert we had pavlova... More
