So. Rockpool’s moved. Its skipped over from the rocks locale and is now housed in the large luxe 2 storied venue that is dark in look but not intimidating. We drop in for a world class lunch and amongst a plethora of amazing dishes; the $7 side dish of potatoes just about stole the show. Amazing value $79 lunch and the service is ace. Its modern Australian fine dining with a slight asian twist and we’ll echo the verdict here. Well worth your time and money. Rock Pool bread and butter to start. There’s a nice ricotta cheese with EVOO + tomato reduction. Chirashi dish. Beautiful presented. Stir fried squid with Squid Ink Noodles Delicate squid with beautiful noodles. Beef Tartare, black olives and black bean dressing. This came with perfect prawn crackers. Suckling Pig with Oats Porridge. Very enjoyable with a very crispy crackling. Bass Grouper in Indian Pastry Smoked Burrawong Chicken hotpot – You can read Jame’s impressions of his meal here A trio of desserts with a luxe chocolate grand cru, a perfectly risen passionfruit souffle and strawberry and cream dish with sparkling wine. Its all beautiful. Rockpool’s classic date tart – they’re tiny but perfect bites ($3 each) Fiendishly great these potatoe dauphines Roasted Zucchini with basil pesto Sides at Rockpool was a neat $7 and them potatoes dauphine there was probably the most revelatory thing this meal. Never has a side packed so much aweseom. The $79 rockpool lunch (with extra $9-10) thrown in for the sparkling they serve is first and foremost fantastic value for the cookery and craft on display here. Service is attentive and unbeatable. Highly recommended and don’t forget the dauphine potatoes. We can’t wait to head back in. Tweet 2 Responses milkteaxx April 24, 2014 wow sounds like an amazing lunch!
