Description
RockPool delivers a culinary experience that combines the best of east and west in a setting that is nothing short of breathtaking. Appropriately named, this elegant dining spot sits just inches from the spray and foam of the sea. The open plan of the decked terrace offers our discerning clientele an unparalleled view and proximity to the ocean and coastline to make the overall experience of a visit to Rockpool truly unforgettable. Executive Chef Lucas Leonardi Varin's well balanced menu reflects the relaxed resort atmosphere with a casual all day dining menu consisting of light, fresh cuisine. Crisp salads and ceviche's, comfort sandwiches, wraps and burgers are featured along with a carefully selected range of regional Thai cuisine. For a heartier selection the grill kitchen flames local seafood and imported meats. For a refined dining experience, Chef Lucas brings his Michelin star training to the forefront with an interchanging special menu highlighting the freshest ingredients with an international array of flavors and fine dining technique.
