A very special dining experience. I agree with previous reviewers about the decor & ambience, it is very grand. What struck me the most is the number of staff who where attentive but not overpowering. Service is slick & helpful. The menu is just what I expected.....dishes with flair & passion. However, the prices are not all over the top.... More

Probably former banc where you eat. Top location for meat, fish and oysters. Service was good, price is very high but the meat is worth it. Had only had a few occasion with such good meat! Very popular location, need to book in advance. Close by the harbor in Sydney. Ask the waiter for a wine in your price category... More

Great day to go if you don't like hustle and bustle but the atmosphere is t quite there when the dining room isn't full. Great steaks and fish enjoyed by our party. Excellent side dishes - beans and roast potatoes a must. Good knowledgable service.

The atmosphere is amazing - high vault ceilings with huge marble columns - looks like an old converted bank. Staff are very attentive without being too obvious, and very polite. Comfortable armchairs, spaciously laid out tables. The food was perfect. Beef Bourguignon was soft and gelatinous - perfect winter warmer. Beef and Guiness pie on mushy peas was also very... More

We had lunch at Rockpool Bar and Grill and it has been a memorable day. Actually we have visited this restaurant three times. The time we remember the most is the day we had wagyu beef burgers. We expected to get the usual burger meal one gets at restaurants, but when the dish arrived and we tasted , well, it... More

This was our first visit to the Sydney version of the franchise. The restaurant has a restricted vision on beef suppliers with a wagyu and an aged grass fed option. The quality of the steaks though were great, definition of level of cooking could be improved though. We found the service though to be good in bursts but on the... More

We had had lunch in Potts Point and wanted a classy feed for the night but casual. The bar at Rockpool delivered. Beautiful wagyu burger to share plus fries and a salad, some fine wine and we were on our way. Great vibe, service and reasonably priced for what we were after - couldn't have been happier. Probably only suggestion... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
