 Rocco has built a great reputation as a unique dining experience combined with stunning views and sensational service.

Located on the top floor of the tower with stunning views to the Coral Sea along with amazing Mediterranean inspired food and mouth watering cocktails, Rocco has it all.

The night promises to test your senses and you can explore the concept of how sight influences your taste.

The theme for this dining experience is Tastes From Around the World.

Shaun Allen, Food and Beverage Outlets Manager at Crystalbrook Riley, says: “research shows that most people eat with their eyes, so we’ll be turning out the lights in order for our guests to really turn up their other senses. Diners will also be blindfolded to add to the intrigue of the night.”

 Senses: Dining in the Dark offers an indulgent four-course menu that pays homage to the four corners of the globe, with guests taken on an intriguing journey from the great outback, to the land of the Rising Sun; across the seas to the Mediterranean cuisine of Morocco before completing their culinary trip in Paris. Wines will be paired to each dish.

 “It’s a feast as much for your imagination, as it is for your eyes,” Shaun says.

“You may find yourself pleasantly surprised.”
