Had The NY eye fillet. Best I've had in Hobart. The ferrero rocher ice cream is a really unique piece too. Loved it. Will be coming back soon.

“Excellent steaks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

Steaks are terrific as are the accompanying sauces. I ordered the rib eye cooked close to perfection. Agree the Turkish delight pannacotta was terrific.

“Lovely food, but could have been better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

Based on other reviews we decided to eat at Rockwall Bar and Grill on a Saturday night. The building and setting was lovely, but if you are after a quiet or romantic night out then this is not for you. We were seated in the middle of the restaurant where there were 2 large parties - we literally could not hear each other talk and even our waitress could not hear us. That aside the first 2 courses (pork belly and tempura prawns for entree, steak for main) were stunning and beautifully cooked. Desserts were another story - one was beautiful whilst the other (the chocolate fondant) was burnt beyond recognition. To give the restaurant credit they offered a replacement, but by then the noise had got to us and we just could not stay any longer. Worth trying, but if they seat you in the middle section and there are large parties there, or if you cannot tolerate an extremely noisy (and I mean extremely noisy) dining atmosphere then perhaps try elsewhere. Most of the food scored 10/10, but was let down by the burnt dessert which should never have left the kitchen, and the ambience. Our waitress was exceptional.

“Come for the Pork Belly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

We enjoyed this restaurant so much we ate here twice on our 3 night stay in Hobart. The service is not perfect - on both nights despite reservations our tables were never ready, so we had to wait around 20 minutes each time. The staff seem to be so busy running around that they forgot we were standing at reception waiting to be seated and on one occasion passed a newly emptied table (which was meant to be for us) onto a new couple who just walked in the door. This is not great service! However, once seated we enjoyed the rest of our night.

The Pork Belly entrée is the best we have ever had. No fat in it, just all meat and a big slice of crackling. It was fabulous! The large Bruny Island oysters were very tasty and so is the Seafood Chowder. Our mains of lamb and steak were all cooked to our liking.
This restaraunt is not fine dining, it is good food in a good atmosphere. The staff were very attentive (once you have a seat) but not intrusive and the wine list was varied. We will eat here again when next in Hobart.
