Monday evening...interstate guests...always a difficult one. Thank heavens Rubicon knows its market and is open. Even better, one of our guest has some dietary requirements. No problem when the booking is made...and this was referenced when we arrived, with an explanation of appropriate choices from the menu, or what the chef could provide as an alternative. All our meals were... More

A quaint restaurant nestled in the inner suburbs, with a floor plan conducive to groups &/or couples, with a warm & friendly atmosphere. The food is fantastic & I really appreciate the chefs willingness to serve food around dietary issues. There is a great wine list but we opted to go BYO. The service did not alter, they willingly took... More

The two of us had an early sitting and were seated in the largely empty restaurant almost on top of another couple. So close were we that the male diner at that table whispered THEY'VE SAT THEM ON TOP OF US! There were spare tables everywhere and these did not fill until we were almost due to leave. We were...

The setting and staff and menu are very good, but during an evening dinner the food was lacking a little. I expected a 'wow' experience and was generally underwhelmed by the food. The food was nice and well cooked. I had the rabbit sausage as an entree and would not give it much for rabbit flavour. I could not recommend... More

I wrote a review in May 2015 with the heading "Nearly Perfect''. More recently four of us had a meal at Rubicon that was truly perfect. Such a meal involves many transactions: each of the dishes has to be based on good ingredients, well cooked and served, each drink has to be promptly and properly poured. The beginning of the...

Nicely set up tables with while cloths and napkins but fairly close to other tables for comfort. The wine buckets (sink) were behind my chair and I found it very annoying having waiters grabbing wine for other tables during my meal. Predinner drinks were served promptly from a huge choice of beverages. The menu is fairly small with a selection... More

Right from the time I rang to book a family get together for 12 through till the end of a great meal I was delighted with the interaction I had with the staff from the Rubicon.
