We went to Rockpool as a last minute work dinner. Once we got over that they had run out of oysters. We got stuck into some amazing food and brilliant wine. The food is a great mix of seafood and varying aged beef. Some other...More

We just had a very disappointing experience at Rockpool, a very expensive restaurant that had a good reputation. The evening started well, when the hostess honored our request for a quiet table. But things went downhill soon after. The headline: from the moment our main...More

Having visited this Resturant before and eaten in many steak/seafood places across the US. It was a very underwhelming evening meal. The service is average at best, and having been here before I was seated in a table in a walk way where other dinners...More

Came with my husband for dinner. It took us 3weeks in advanced to book. Love the super high ceiling, feels like dinning in the cathedral. With dimmed light everywhere is romance. Ordered a bottle of Red and Fillet, very nice. I would love to come...More

I was recently invited to dine at Rockpool Bar & Grill. Having dined at the Rockpool venue in Bridge Street previously, I was really looking forward the dinner. The restaurant ambience is in fact, not dissimilar to the old Bridge Street venue. No issues with...More

When you want to charge over $200 for a steak plus sides etc - you sort of have to have your stuff together. They don't - or at least not at the bar. First - the bartender had to stop between steps to read the...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
