Hubby and I had dinner here tonight. I was very excited at the prospect but the reality was quite different. The restaurant has little to no ambience. Way too loud and big and the table layout does not allow for intimate dinners or private conversation. No candles.....just these funny cheap lamps that you need, to attempt to read the menu,...

I went for lunch midweek and it was a quiet atmosphere. I had the T-Bone and friend had the Scotch Fillet. The sides we chose were....Roasted Pumpkin and Sweet Potato with Garlic Yoghurt and Burnt Butter & Wood Fire Grilled Corn Puree with Chipotle Butter and Manchego. All the food was amazing and i would definitely recommend this restaurant. The... More

I was wondering if Rockpool was still offering a good option in trendy food-oriented Melbourne. it is expensive but you spend a very nice evening and have an excellent dinner. very warm service. Starters were excellent, the mains (cape grim beef) as expected and the dessert (pavlova) delicious. Nothing to fault.

It's like heaven on earth, just to think about the steaks I had there, I've got tears in the eyes, service is really pleasant, great wine list, pastries are classic and so well done, the lemon tart is so delightful, they are doing a great job !!

One of Melbourne's highly regarded restaurants and you could not fault the quality of the meals. Both the steak and seafood choices were outstanding. The restaurant is cavernous however and loud. It is not possible to have a private discussion and the wait staff are too intrusive. You get the sense that you should be grateful to be there. I... More

Very ordinary visit. I have found memories of Rockpool in it's hey day in George St Sydney. This is not of the same ilk. While it is a very slick operation the food is quite ordinary. My husbands steak was fatty and not tender and succulent. My salad was lacking flavour. Highlight was the chocolate crackle and coffee mousse dessert... More

Last night we took our two children and their partners to dinner at Rockpool to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We spent some time choosing a restaurant based on reviews and personal recommendations. WE wanted something special, not too noisy, nice ambience and great food. Rockpool came out close to the top and we were not disappointed. From the moment... More

Our children gave us a voucher for Rockpool as a Xmas present while we were in Melbourne for Xmas. There were 4 of us and booking was essential. Rockpool has a great reputation and certainly lived up to the reputation. The service was great and always present without being intrusive. The food was excellent and so well presented. In addition... More
