Rockpool Bar & Grill Melbourne

Rockpool has long been my go to restaurant for guests who are looking for great steaks and seafood with a contemporary and elegant dining room.  Located on the banks of the Yarra River in the Crown Casino complex, Rockpool delivers time and time again.

The service, food and ambiance are always impeccable and the view of the city and the river is the perfect backdrop for an elegant night on the town.

On our visit we enjoyed some of the freshest seafood in town followed by some of the best beef you can find in the city.  Neil Perry pays special attention to his suppliers and all the meat and seafood are locally sourced from suppliers who go the extra mile to ensure their product is the freshest and most flavourful around.  You really can taste the difference.  I was delighted to enjoy my favourite dish the simple yet sinfully good mac and cheese along with roast pumpkin and salad.

The sommelier chose some of the most beautiful wines to accompany the meal, they were perfectly matched and of the highest quality.   Rockpool boasts one of the best wine lists in town so no matter whether you prefer old or new world wines you are sure to find the perfect choice for you meal.

The restaurant is so popular that booking are required well in advance.   My tip if you can’t get in is to try the bar.  You can enjoy a meal here too and the entire section is left unreserved for walk ins.

Rockpool is located in the Crown Complex near the Crown Towers hotel and can be contacted on 03 8648 1900.  Rockpool is open for dinner seven days and week and for lunch on Sunday to Friday.
