My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at Rockpool Bar and Grill. I have been living in Sydney for 5 years and have always wanted to dine at Rockpool Bar & Grill based on its glowing reviews from friends, however because it is expensive I have reserved dining here for a special occasion.
I was not overly impressed with the restaurant's layout and decor upon arrival. The tables are placed very closely together and there is no privacy from other diners.
The food itself was a big let down. The bread rolls were cold and hard. My husband and I both found we struggled to find items off the menu that were appealing. We shared the fried calamari starter, and for mains shared the wagu chock and mussel stew. The wagu chock was delicious but the rest of the food was very average. We only each ordered 1 cocktail each because the drinks weren't that amazing and were really pricey. We didn't stay for dessert although the table next to us ordered profiteroles which looked very nice.
Overall I found Rockpool Bar & Grill disappointing. Perhaps my expectations were too high (but for the price of the meals and drinks I feel high expectations are warranted). I wouldn't go back again.
