Awarded Three Chef Hats - The SMH Good Food Guide 2013-2014
Rockpool has a relaxed take on fine dining but each dish is served with dramatic finesse. Perry proves that he is not only the master of simply beautiful seafood dishes, he also has an environmental conscience; the cornerstone of the menu is based around a sustainable philosophy of using the finest and freshest produce from Australia's most reputable suppliers.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
After closing its doors for a renovation in late 2007, Neil Perry's Rockpool has re-emerged with a relaxed take on fine dining and a new name - Rockpool (fish). The white linen cloths have been stripped from the table and the overall look is one of a refreshingly casual beachside restaurant, albeit one sitting smack bang in the middle of Sydney's historic Rocks district. Perry proves that he is not only the master of simply beautiful seafood dishes, he also has an environmental conscience; the cornerstone of the menu is based around a sustainable philosophy of using the finest and freshest produce from Australia's most reputable suppliers.

Perry might be attempting to create a more casual elegance within Rockpool (fish) but at the end of the day he's not fooling anyone; the menu is still pricey (sourcing such premium produce is no doubt the reason) and the service is still impeccable. There is no mistaking the classiness that lingers at Rockpool (fish) yet the laidback vibe is appreciated by those who like to let their elbows stray onto the table and spear forkfuls from their companion's dishes. The menu is extensive and designed to be played with so if you're swamped, choose from one of the classic Rockpool dishes; seared Yellowfin tuna steak with chermoula crust and smoky eggplant salad is vibrant in both appearance and taste. Desserts have a slightly retro edge to them and include an adult's version of a kiddie favourite, a chocolate rice crackle cake topped with gold leaf. Don't just dip your toe in - Rockpool (fish) is well worth a splash.
