Rockpool Bar & Grill has been serving up great food since it first opened in Melbourne in 2006. Lunchtime at the Rockpool is synonymous with business power lunches whilst, amidst candlelight, dinners are known to be frequented by the “first-date” variety. Based on Chef Neil Perry’s food I’m sure the deal always gets sealed. The emphasis (or mantra) at the Rockpool has always been high quality produce and we experienced this first hand with our David Blackmore’s Full Blood Wagyu Hamburger, comprised of a brioche bun, bacon, onions, gruyere cheese and zuni pickles.

“A burger that is all about the Wagyu beef pattie. With peppery sauteed onions, lean bacon, cheese and some of the best pickes I’ve had. You also get the option of two well presented pieces of lettuce and tomato on the side. Like all good burger places should, this is the first venue to ask us how we wanted the pattie cooked. Oh and the bun deserves a special mention too!”
“Respect for them asking how we wanted our beef cooked. Medium-rare is their standard and my dining companions got exactly that, however mine was cooked a little longer (I had asked for medium rare) and I had no pool of juice left on the plate. That aside the burger was great. The flavours all worked in perfect harmony. Loved the decor, atmosphere and lighting, which all combined really helped cure my hangover.”
“A really classy burger. It’s probably the only place where people can eat their burgers with a knife and fork and get away with it. Anywhere else and they would look like a wanker. My favourite aspect of the burger was the beef pattie (so far ranking highest for me). The pickle and bun came in second, followed by the bacon and cheese. Hand cut fat chips ($12 extra) were OK.”
“This was a refined and well thought out burger. The beef pattie was outstanding but overall the finely sliced, zesty zuni pickles stole the show for me. An experience not to be forgotten. Go the distance and order a beer and a side of onion rings ($9 per serve).”


Rockpool sometimes have another burger on their menu called “David Blackmore’s Mishima Hamburger” which is the same as their Wagyu Burger but uses Mishima beef, which I believe is grass fed. I tried it once ages ago and actually preferred it to the Wagyu. I just checked and it appears to be on the menu again now.
