“the best meal we had all weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

ended up here and could not have been happier with our meal, the excellent service and the atmosphere of this restaurant. lovely owners working hard and deserving of much success. our meal was beautifully grilled quail and - for once - perfectly cooked brussel sprouts. we also had a bloody mary oyster shooter for fun and it was! thank you team for our trip highlight. couldn't recommend highly enough. see you again for sure.

“Simply lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Our dinner at Rockwall was splendid. Service was attentive, friendly, and highly competent. The food was fantastic - very fresh, high quality, and skilfully prepared.
The restaurant itself is lovely. It was a pleasure to dine here.
Highly recommended.

“Why did I wait so long to go here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I live locally and always thought about going here but just never got around to it, I finally got around to making a date to attend in mid June 2013, food was great, atmosphere was great. Do yourself a favor and book in for a look, I don't think you will be disappointed.

“Well worth a try”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Our group of six arrived unannounced quite early on a Saturday night, just after six PM. We were told that it was fine just as long as we were finished by 7:30, happy with that we were taken up to the back, near the featured Rockwall and sat at a large spacious table. The wait staff were attentive, unobtrusive yet always available.
The drinks menu was extensive and the drinks were served promptly and expertly.

We had beautiful bread with oil and a very sweet balsamic vinegar that was lovely.
Without going into the nuances of all the dishes, they were all superbly cooked. Amongst the table we had steak, mushroom risotto, crispy skin chicken, and grilled fish. All were delicious.
The dessert menu was also inspiring and clever and all enjoyed the dishes.
When we left on time, we noticed the place was close to being packed out and was quite noisy near the front. If you can, see if you can get a seating near the back or eat early, the whole place is quite small and the sound bounces about a bit. The ambiance was great and the background music was good as well.

I'm happy to go back but perhaps only for special occasions as the prices were high for my personal budget but perfectly understandable given the location and the food quality.
Starters are in the $8-$15 range from memory and most mains were in the low to mid $30 mark.
We were farewelled as we left and couldn't be happier with the service and attitude from the staff.
