Food

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.

Bar

The bar at Rockpool Sydney is the perfect venue for a pre or post lunch or dinner drink or for a casual bite to eat. With a no bookings policy, a fantastic bar menu and a cocktail and wine list second to none, it is ideal for those impromptu moments. Join us for RP Hour, 4pm-6pm weekdays.

Dane Reid
Restaurant General Manager

Dane was promoted to Restaurant General Manager at Rockpool Bar & Grill Sydney in 2022, after four years as an Assistant Restaurant Manager.

A self-confessed night owl, he says the hours suited him. Plus, it was a lot of fun. Bartending also paved the way to Australian and international travel.

Determined to progress his hospitality career, he moved into an Assistant Restaurant Manager role. In 2018, he took his Assistant Restaurant Manager skills to Rockpool Bar & Grill Sydney.
