After a pleasant stroll and taking in the interesting sights along South Bank, we were looking forward to a great lunch on our last day in Melbourne. We reserved a table at Rockpool at Crowne Towers. The items on the lunch and dinner menus are crafted daily and provide lots of variety to whet anyone’s appetite.

We especially enjoyed the king prawns, steak, duck, spaghetti and salad dishes.

Service was efficient and waiters were obliging with changing the pasta to the preferred choice for our little one. That was much appreciated and the bolognese was tasty and well received.
The steak was superb and accompanying sauces were delicious. King prawns were cooked to perfection and duck was beyond expectations.

We celebrated two birthdays with slices of chocolate cake which added to our dining pleasure and created more special memories. It was a very sweet ending to our Melbourne holiday.

Would definitely recommend Rockpool to all our family and friends.

Having read the reviews we booked in for a romantic Saturday night meal and were not disappointed. The service and food were excellent. Very professional but not stuffy. We both had steak, sides, and a bottle of red wine from the extensive wine list. The top end of the cost spectrum for restaurants, but worth it for a special occasion.

Birthday lunch for a friend, 6 people in all.

Majority opted for steaks, different types, and all were happy with what was delivered. I had the waggu silverside which was great. Sides were well presented and tasty. Service was good and attentive. Great meal

So much better than the Sydney Rockpool where both service and food are a let down. Restores your faith, lucky Melbourne

Like steak?

Like wine?

Like eating in dim lighting?

Like casino style restaurants?

Then go here and fall in love.

It does what it does very well and makes no excuses for that (nor should it).

Answer the questions... Then enjoy or avoid either way it will be the right choice.
