First of all, Rockpool is a restaurant specialized in meats. But the finest meats. That’s why to eat at one of the best steakhouse in Melbourne is not near to be cheap. In fact, a nice dinner here, the price surrounds $170 AUD dollars at least with entree, main and dessert. But not counting the wines that certainly elevate the cost. Moreover, where restaurants as Rockpool that choose the best ingredients to their guest is almost inevitable to pay high price. However, dining here worth it.

Besides, although all of us who love good food and sometimes we don’t care about the cost of a nice lunch or dinner. But, my mission here, it’s to keep you aware to any factor that can ruin your night and from time to time expensive price does it.

Surely, I remember very well this one because, it was amazing. Indeed the wagyu mixed with the mustard sauce is just so good. Still in the menu but with different accompaniment.
