The moment you step onto Steel Tree @ The Foreshore’s premises it’s hard to resist the urge to turn immediately to the seafood selection on the extensive menu of modern Australian cuisine. Located right on Mangles Bay at the head of Railway Terrace, diners can get away from the city centre (while remaining close by) and gaze out over the water to Garden Island as they enjoy set menus with suggestive names like Boardwalk Bargain, Seabreeze Supreme, Foreshore Feast and the Jewel of the Bay Deluxe. There’s far more on offer for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert at Steel Tree however, including smiling service that’s famous in Rockingham and as far as Perth and beyond. Advance bookings are strongly advised.
Steel Tree @ The Foreshore opens its Railway Terrrace premises early, just off Rockingham Beach Road and blessed with ample parking for those coming in from elsewhere in the city centre, whipping up breakfasts and superb coffee from 7:30am, making it a favourite for Rockingham locals heading down for some morning sand and surf along Mangles Bay, whose beautiful coastal shallows at the southern end of Cockburn Sound draw sea and sun worshippers from Mandura in the south and Perth in the north. An a la carte lunch selection is packed with modern Australian classics, with a diverse selection of dishes with roots in European and Southeast Asian culinary cultures, while the lunchtime set menu offers a solid introduction to penny-pinchers and the indecisive.
Indeed, Steel Tree @ The Foreshore’s forte are their lavish set menus, with the most luxurious of these, the Jewel of the Bay Deluxe, offering up a wealth of Western Australian seafood and other dishes packed with locally-sourced ingredients. Start with garlic black tiger prawns or sundried tomato and brie arancini, choose from bacon-wrapped Mount Barker chicken, Atlantic salmon or the Tender Ridge sirloin steak, and finish with chocolate brownie or the Cointreau and white chocolate cheesecake. A formidable permanent resident of a restaurant in Rockingham with easy connections to the city centre and further afield, Steel Tree is a major draw for foodies as far as Perth and Fremantle making their way down the coast for a slice of the finer things in life – to avoid disappointment, make a reservation in advance.
I love this place. I come here for breakfast often. Great food, great staff and, most importantly, wonderful coffee. Will miss this place when I move 550kms away in July but will be back when visiting the folks. Highly recommend this place. The lunch specials are awesome value.
Service with s smile and great value for money with the $12 lunch special. Battered fish and chips with a glass of sav blanc only cost $19. Lovely view across the ocean.
Yummiest pasta dishes around and who can complain when its $10 a plate Definitely going back for a cheap and delicious meal. Lovely staff members too
Great meal as always & such friendly staff always book Steel tree when I catch up with family & friends. Excellent variety of lunch time specials. Thanks all at Steel Tree
Dinner was delicious. Bit disappointed in the size of the salt and pepper squid. Is a starter but was ordered as a main after being told there was a lot. Rib eye fillet cook to perfection and just the way I requested. The roast veges that came with it were divine and was able to take it home and enjoyed another meal. Service was great, staff are friendly but don't over bother you and interrupt. 9/10 for the whole afternoon
The food was amazeballs!! Very generous portions.... and the garlic bread to die for. Friendly staff, who knew their menu and how it was put together... I was impressed. We chose to sit outside on a warm evening, which was lovely. Only real complaint was the rubbish blowing around our feet, not your fault as it had obviously blown in from the street.
The service was very good, but we did have a mix up with the steak, I had been given my partners and vice versa, I had to send mine back, so we ended watching each other eat, but the food was good when it came, and I was given a free glass of wine and the chef sent out a bowl of chips for me to munch on whilst I waited. I'd go again.
It was my first vist to The Steel Tree on the foreshore and will definitely be returning. The food was excellent and at a great price, the girls were really friendly and made us feel welcome. Although they did forget to sing Happy Birthday to my Aunty😊 i will forgive them as they were very busy. Highly recommend trying it out.
I dine at the Steel Tree quite regularly and on every occasion I and my fellow diners have found the food to be of excellent quality and the portions ample and management and staff are professional and very pleasant and extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend the Steel Tree for Breakfast, lunch (especially the $12 lunch) and dinner. Wil.
My husband enjoyed the sundries tomato risotto, whilst I opted for the carbonara pasta. As it's a rather rich meal, I would have preferred vegetable to balance it out. Had to resort to stealing my husband's brocollini and couldn't eat the oversized plateful of food. Took the leftovers home for dinner tonight. Having eaten at the Steel Tree several times, we would like to see a change in the menu. The friendly staff and great location makes it a favourite treat of ours, especially for breakfast or lunch.
