Every aspect of the visit here was excellent. The staff, friendly, helpful and welcoming. The food, superb, especially the Skink of course - genuinely the best I've tasted, including my own, which ain't bad if I say so myself! I'd recommend Rockpool to anyone.

No scraping of metal chairs on floors, no loud music, no shouting back and forth to kitchen made it a very peaceful lunch, and the bonus of being able to hear each other speak. It is often hard to find places where you can enjoy...More

I do not think it would be possible to take your dog inside. I would recommend calling and reserving a table by the window as you may be able to tether your dog outside while you eat. Restaurants here do not allow dogs, but... More
