My sister-in-law has great taste and for her birthday, she chose Rock & Rose in Richmond as the restaurant to celebrate it in. It took a while to get to, but it did not disappoint.
First impressions are everything and Rock & Rose is fascinating upon entry. Before you get into the restaurant, it has a cosy outside seating area, which had been reserved for us when the time limit on our table had run out. They had provided cushions on the steel seats and blankets to keep us warm. There was also a fire burning.
Inside, the decor channels a kitsch and antique mood. We were sat opposite a giant mirror with scratched gold detailing, and the wallpaper in the corridor by the toilets gave me ‘grandma’ vibes, but had a lovely beige chair in the corner, so it was a mixture of the old and new.
For starters, I had the chilli salt squid with sweet chilli dipping sauce. You guys know how much I love calamari for starters. I really have to start choosing something different, but it’s because I know it won’t let me down.
For my main, I chose the rib eye steak with roast tomato and rock fries. It was tender, flavoursome and satisfying. Like I said, my sister-in-law really knows how to pick her places. I enjoyed it so much that I would even go back with Julious, preferably when we get a car.
Have you ever been to Rock & Rose?
