A long, candlelit corridor quarantines Rockpool from its gaudy casino mothership and builds anticipation as diners enter a Crown jewel of Perth's dining scene. Linger at the bar over a Bourbon and Blood cocktail or start swotting the epic wine list, which even describes villages where grapes are grown. This Neil Perry steakhouse is renowned for red-blooded dining,  hence the dry-aged cuts from elite producers David Blackmore and Cape Grim. But if beef doesn't ring your bell, rest assured all the produce is as carefully sourced, from Arkady lamb to Mount Barker chicken. Also on the menu: vibrant chunks of yellowfin tuna tartare rendered smoky and spicy by cumin mayo, Moroccan-style eggplant salad and harissa oil. Poached marron wallows in gazpacho with olive cheeks and pickled cucumber - it's summer on a plate. The bacon-enriched mac 'n' cheese remains irresistible, so too the signature pavlova and faultless crème caramel.
