Rockpool Bar & Grill

A candle-lined walkway. A gilded room designed by Grant Cheyne. Engaging, snappily dressed staff. These are some reasons why Rockpool remains the eater's best bet at the casino. As you'd expect from a restaurant that's dry-ageing six-figures' worth of beef at any given moment, protein underscores Rockpool's luxe steakhouse concept: sweetbreads with almonds and orange, perhaps, or gamy, wood-roasted Wagin duck. That said, Rockpool's surf might outshine its turf. Juicy charcoal-roasted rankin cod is a convincing masterclass in simplicity, while tea-smoked salmon and finger limes with coconut cream proves that more is sometimes more. That's certainly been the credo of the formidable cellar, although the return of sommelier and long-time Neil Perry collaborator Matthew Bell brings welcome vim to the wine service. Unfussy desserts like feathery doughnut balls with apricot compote ensure a sweet exit.
