Birthday lunch at Rockpool.....!



For my birthday in October last year Dave and Courtney gave me a gift voucher for Neil Perry's  restaurant Rockpool.. most would say the best in a growing group of exclusive eateries at Crown. Neil Perry AM is one of Australia's best known and respected chefs, check out some of his dishes here. It was Aimee's birthday yesterday so we decided it was about time to break out the gift voucher and celebrate in style :) The entrance to Rockpool above in the grand foyer of Crown Perth., and below the open kitchen where you can watch the chefs prepare your meal.....


The food was excellent and although Dave had warned us that the sides (scroll down) were ample we still ordered way more than we should have....


Already more than happy with the service I was seriously impressed that after spotting us giving Aimee her birthday present earlier, after the meal and before desert they presented her with a super chocolaty cup cake plus candle to blow out :) That was nice! Altogether an enjoyable experience that will be repeated.. my little girl may be a year older but she still loves a chocolaty cupcake! We were out at more Fringe festivities last night, catch up today! Happy middle of the week, take care.....
