Rockpool Bar and Grill

Modern Australian

Crown Entertainment Complex 8 Whiteman Street, South Bank VIC 3006

Ph. (03) 8648 1900

The driving philosophy for the build of Rockpool Bar & Grill was to create a great dining experience, a fusion of the Rockpool ethos and a classic North American steakhouse, with reference made to the grand brasseries of Paris such as La Coupole and Le Dome.

Opening at Crown Complex, Southbank, in October 2006, the restaurant has to date been praised by diners and critics alike, and in much the same way as it's sister restaurant Rockpool, is set to become another of Neil's iconic Australian eating establishments.

Unfortunately my experience at Rockpool VIC was very dissapointing. It had been a wish of mine to go there for so long, not that easy as we live interstate with 2 small children. Eventually my husband surprised me and off we went. The service was great, the sidedishes were good but our meals were very, very average. As you would understand the main reason you go somewhere is to enjoy your meal not only the service and sidedishes. Very dissapointed.

The food is of such a high quality, and the produce is fresh australian seafood, quality meats, aged or young and above that, the ambience, service and location are wonderful.

Brilliant food combinations, attention to detail and fabulous service. Would eat there every day if feasible.

We went there while on our first trip to Melbourne. We booked the day before & were able to get a table. We were just 'blown away' with the service we received & it made us feel very very special. The food was amazing too. After entres of Tuna & Prawns, we shared a massive rib eye steak, with as many condiments as you could imagine. I think we even had dessert?
What a wonderful experience!!

I always look forward to eating at rookpool because the food is delicious. The menu is easy to read and understand. The food is wonderful without being too pretentious. The service is great as is the atmosphere. It's the sort of place that you can go as a couple or go with a group of friends for a special occasion. The other reason I like going there is that sometimes I might want a light casual lunch and they have a casual bar area where you can have a lighter meal or snack and drink. Great place and great location.
