Rockpool Sydney, Sydney

11 bridge street, Sydney

Have been here a few times since it re-opened in Bridge Street. This occasion was a valentines day lunch with Vanessa. There’s a lot to be said for lunching on this date. You avoid the price gouging at night, with uninspired menus (steak or salmon) and the depressing sight of 50 tables of 2 trying to enjoy themselves.

This is I suspect less of an issue for Rockpool. The room is sleek and money. The food is excellent. One could hypothesize how the chinese inspired food reflects a country that straddles the east & west. You’d sound a bit of wanker though. Regardless, the flavours are big, especially in comparison to the traditional Flower Drum. Steak Tartare with black bean dressing, chicken hotpot with potatoes dauphine. All outstanding.

A lot of iconic Sydney restaurants rely on their location to be distinctive, but Rockpool Sydney has to rely on the food. I consider it to be some of the most distinctive you’ll find ‘here’.
