“Perfect for a special occasion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

We visited Rockwall on a busy Saturday night. There were 8 in our party, and we were treated to exceptional service from the moment we arrived. Whilst the menu is certainly up there in price, ALL our meals were cooked to perfection, and all 8 arrived within minutes of each other, a first EVER in my experience of large group dining on such a busy night! Desserts $13, but to die for!!!

“Fine if you want steak”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

If you don't want steak, or for that matter don't want meat, then probably don't bother. The restaurant decor, ambiance and staff were lovely. But, for the prices being charged and what the restaurant is aspiring to be...they fell far short. Fish cooked and dry, sides were burnt, heating insufficient and generally cold, and service was content to leave diners without drinks or dessert menus for 20 minutes plus. For a restaurant charging half the amount, that wouldn't be a problem, but for what Rowckwall are appear to be aiming for, I would expect something more. AVOID.

“Fabulous meal for a special occasion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We enjoyed a wedding lunch at Rockwall - what a great menu for such a significant event. The options on the set menu were varied, and a nice change from many weddings with the 50/50 approach. The pork belly was amazing! The calamari, beautifully tender. We both chose the chicken stuffed with caramelised leeks for main and the Turkish delight panacotta for desert. Both were delicious. The local wines selected to accompany the meal were lovely. The room at the rear of the restaurant suited the size of the wedding party. Visiting Hobart? Add Rockwall to 'to do' list.

“Great lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

The Seafood and Chorizo Hotpot was delicious. The slight warmth in the chorizo complemented the plump and fresh seafood components. Service was prompt and friendly. I'd be happy to dine here again.
