Fodor's Expert Review Rockpool
A meal at Rockpool is a crash course in what Mod Oz cooking is all about, conducted in a glamorous, long dining room with a catwalk-like ramp. Chefs Neil Perry and Phil Wood weave Thai, Chinese, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern influences into their repertoire with effortless flair and originality. The seasonal 10-course dinner tasting menu (A$185) constantly dazzles and may include mud crab with stir-fried milk and Jerusalem artichoke or snapper with sour orange curry, cashew, and coconut. Don't miss the date tart for dessert—it's been a Rockpool favorite since 1984. The Classic Lunch Menu, of two set courses, is a great value at A$49.
