Have been dinning with my partner in the Rustic stone a good few times, and we think the food is always very good. When we were there last week we had a table downstairs and were served by a waiter called Aaron, he must be one of the longer serving waiters because his knowledge of food and level... read more

This is by far an unique experience! The food is amazing; every morsel has its own distinctive flavor blended superbly with everything else of the plate! So much thought goes into the preparation of each dish. Cooking the main course on a stone was such an experience. The service and knowledge of the waiters is first class, atmosphere relaxed and...

Booked Rustic Stone recently for a large group and was impressed from the get go. Right from the start, the reservation process was made nice and easy, usually for a group this large you are bombarded with "rules" .. must have a set menu, must pay a deposit, must arrive at a certain time, etc., etc., ...

Me and my girlfriend and I had a great evening in the Rustic Stone yesterday. The place is very central, all the details are cured with the utmost precision and the food is simply divine. But the real point that goes beyond any expectations was our server, Florian. He was absolutely on the ball and he treated us like royalties!!... More

I had a very enjoyable meal at the Rustic Stone. I had the mini Glam burgers, and my hubby had the Steak. Really enjoyed it and it was very reasonably priced. Great atmosphere in the Restaurant, would return. Thank you :)

We had lunch here yesterday and the food was outstanding. Probably the best burger I have ever had and the quail skewers were divine. It is pretty expensive though. We had a few beers but our bill still came to over €80 just for lunch. One shared starter and two burgers. We were a bit surprised as we had just... More

We visited Rustic Stone in February and were a group of 6. It was a Saturday night and a tasting menu of 50 Euro per person. What a great dining experience. The service, ambience and food was excellent. Most of us had the steak on the stone (excellent!) and some had fish which also had very good reviews. The presentation... More

For people up for trying new things, this place is great. Just about right on price point (they wouldn't want to raise their prices), with great healthy options. I suggest cooking on the stone a little more efficiently than I did though, as was struggling to get enough juice out of it for the end of my steak! Drink menu... More

Tuna steak was really good. But also appreciated the allergy awareness in the menu- everything was safely marked. Cocktails really good as well
