Tantalising tapas in a beautiful setting

Rusticos is a firm favourite for us to frequent both when we were locals and now when we visit Rockingham beach. The menu is authentic and vibrant with regular new tapas to tickle your tastebuds as well as the old favourites (mine is the scallops and the pork belly!) service is always exemplary and... read more

The whole experience was different to anything we had ever tried and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a romantic birthday celebration for 2 and although it was very noisy we still managed to inject some romance into lunch. This is a great place for something a little different. Loved it

Lucky to get seating as very busy. Great service and the food was very enjoyable. Sat overlooking the park on high stools. Had been recommended by Ali at Manuel Towers, we were not disappointed.

Has to wait for a table as this place is very popular and certainly has a following. But well worth the wait. Awesome tapas platters and sangria , on a hot day. Wonderful surroundings , view and the staff are excellent. Only complaint is its not big enough, but you get that.

Extremely rude staff and very unhelpful. Had to ask three times to be served and when we got served the waitress was very rude and acted like she didn't want to be there. The food is excellent, compliments to the chefs but the waitress' are all very rude.

I stumbled across Rustico luckily after getting lost looking for the local resutarants. I really enjoyed my meal of scollops and Lamb, there is a wide selection of food. Reasonably priced Cider which is always a bonus. Excellent service from the Canadian Waitress.

A fabulous tapas restaurant in a great location in Rockingham. Bookings are a must, we visited on a Wednesday night and had to book (restaurant was full), so ensure you book. Being tapas I was worried there would be smoke food. For three of us, four dishes were plenty. We ordered corn croquettes, beef cheeks, pork belly and deep friend... More
