Rockpool Bar & Grill Sydney is Australia’s most beautiful dining room. Situated in the sensational City Mutual Building, a 1936 Emil Sodersteen-designed American style art deco skyscraper, the dining style is simple and uncomplicated – perfectly wood fire grilled meats and seafood from Australia’s very best producers – a perfect match to what is Australia’s greatest wine list.
With an emphasis on excellent produce and a precise and attentive service style, the adjoining bar is the perfect spot for pre or post lunch and dinner drinks, or a more relaxed dining experience.
“The cornerstone of good cooking is to source the finest produce.” – Neil Perry
Our beef is sourced directly from the producers and dry aged on our premises. The dry ageing process is important as it brings a better flavour to the beef than that of the more common wet aging in cryovac, which in essence is really preserving the beef. This however takes a big commitment as we have many tonnes of beef ageing at any one time. We believe that the types of beef we have are representative of the best of their type in Australia. Blackmore’s Wagyu and Cape Grim Grass Fed Beef fit into the strict Rockpool philosophy of humane treatment to the cattle. There are no growth hormones used and no antibiotic feed supplements. This is a rare thing in Australia today, particularly with the standard lot fed cattle.
