Interesting Experience, Cooking Your Own Entree at the Table

At first this seems a bit like a gimmick: they bring your entree to the table on a VERY hot stone, then you allow it to simmer until it's done to your taste. It worked fine with my steak, but I can see how fish would simply cook too fast or well done, and ruin the plate. Best advice: share... read more

Visited on a Friday night and found it to be an over all let down. Between the food, the staff and going home smelling like food I wouldn't recommend

I went to the Rustic Stone a couple of weeks ago with my fiance and we could not have enjoyed it more. As a starter we had the chicken wings and the salmon and they were just delicious. My fiance decided to go for the rib eye steak and i had the lobster casserole. It is such a great idea... More

A great spot for dinner with friends; vibrant bar and bistro downstairs, exciting main dining room in the middle and a new fusion cuisine concept upstairs. Crisp, professional yet friendly service, sensational salads and the tuna on the hot plate blew us away.

So your food comes on a hot stone, you take it off, cut it and then put it back on the stone to cook it, before taking it off again to eat it! Fine with a steak maybe, but the reason to choose fish in a restaurant is to have an expert cook it for you properly! Food was fine,... More

As a group we were on the set menu at E40 a head which was great. Steak on the stone was a little tough but the prawns to start were delightful as was the desert.

Start with a drink at the attractive and comfortable upstairs bar...unique cocktails and lots of smiles. Downstairs, dine on food good on volcanic rock at your table; nice portions and very good. Beware, if ordering a (delicious) salad, know that the portions are more the generous...go for the half portion.

We had an excellent meal here, with great food and service - I'd highly recommend the early sharing menu.
