Not that great.

Very good service and my partner adored the oysters. The rock lobster pate was solid and tasteless and my fish was lovely but overcooked. Nice ambience and great staff.

As usual the place was full by the time we turned up so we waited down the road on a wine until a table was vacated. This business is a bonanza and its easy to see why its so popular when you work your way through the menu. The staff are always on the ball and the food is always... More

Have to say had one of the best steaks at Rockwall that I've had in years. I took the recommended special involving a coffee and herb rub and OMG - was fantastic. Lady on table next to us had the lamb and also said was fantastic. Note meals do come with veges (not mentioned) so do check before ordering sides.... More

The steak was extremely tender and cold! Vegetable side very bland and oridinary, fries also cold! Very expensive cold dinner!

As a local, Rockwall most probably is a different experience to "out of towners". Possibly, if not probably, we take it for granted. The continual advertising with legendary Aussie Rules Football icons Garry "Bull" Baker and his footy mentor Ron Barassi saying it his favourite place to eat, possibly diminishes a tad, just how good this place is. Consistency first... More

What a find in Hobart for our conference participants. Everyone agreed their meals were superb. My steak was to die for and the Chocolate fondant delicious. Staff were helpful and attentive and went out of their way to make our night extra special. I would say this was the best steak and fondant I have had in any of my... More

We were in Hobart during the Boat show so it was pretty busy. We had dinner at Rockwall and was advised to book. I liked the atmosphere in the restaurant and the service was friendly and efficient. We shared the Tempura Prawns as our starter and followed with Seafood and Chorizo Hotpot and Crispy Skin Chicken Breast. The prawns were... More

I booked this restaurant for my girlfriends birthday. A truly awesome steak perfectly cooked. Great service. My only complaint is having to wait for 30 minutes stood at the bar.

I'd be surprised if anything you chose here was bad. Some people don't understand why you would choose steak at a restaurant because you can easily do it at home. I almost went for the pork, but the waitresses recommendation for the steak off the specials list swayed me - her use of the word 'morish' made it hard to... More

Visited on Saturday night with friends and oh what an experience! Our steaks were the best, cooked to perfection with lots of flavour. Ambience & service exceptional! Definitely leave room for desert...fantastic.
