Rockpool

Rockpool

The enduring standard bearer of fine dining in Sydney relaunched in 2014 to huge praise. The term “Modern Australian” can seem elusive to outsiders, but here it all makes perfect sense: the prix-fixe menus (warning: they’re pricey) feature an impressive range of options, such as charcoal-grilled prawn with shiso and nam prik sauce; a dolled-up serving of Aphrodite haloumi (a squeaky, salty Cypriot cheese); and the restaurant’s signature petit four, its house-made date tart.
