Rockpool Bar and Grill Melbourne was inspired by the great steakhouses of North America. With an uncompromising focus on excellent produce - in particular the meat program - beef sourced from only Australia's very best producers, an outstanding wine list and sharp and enthusiastic service, this is a dining venue that offers a refined yet relaxed experience..the menu is simple and uncomplicated, the room luxurious.
Our beef is sourced directly from the producers and dry aged on our premises. That means we have total control over the quality of the beef.
The dry aging 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 aging at any one time.
We believe that the four types of beef we have are representative of the best of their type in Australia. Blackmore's Wagyu, Greenhams and Rangers Valley all 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. It is why we feel that Rangers Valley is the only grain fed cattle we could fit within our Rockpool philosophy.
