Description: Have you ever had the chance to sample Spanish Tapas on La Rambla,...
Have you ever had the chance to sample Spanish Tapas on La Rambla, Barcelona while soaking in the European Sun? Or enjoy the local Sangria while sitting at a Tapas Bar on the beautiful beaches of San Sebastian with Jamon hanging from the ceiling? The Spanish have a beautiful way of life and combined with their unique cuisine they have created a lifestyle which is arguably the envy of the rest of the world. Here at Rustico Tapas Bar we try to replicate the relaxed and warm atmosphere Spain offers as well as fresh, seasonal, delicious Tapas incorporating local produce that everyone can enjoy. Tapas are small plates of food that are ideally shared amongst the table to encourage conversation. With the help of a jug of Sangria, or two, this style of food creates a fun and easy environment for people to socialise and unwind. So immerse yourself in the Spanish culture and treat yourself to our award winning food and friendly service, please make yourself at home in our small slice of Spain.

Delicious

Food here is great. A bit pricey but superb taste. Maybe the tapas aren't authentic Spanish tapas but what does it matter if the food tastes so good. We tried 4 dishes between 2 which was more than enough. Went back the next night to try their desserts and weren't disappointed. Good to book ahead... read more

Husband and I enjoyed the 6 course degustation menu with premium half glass wine with each course. Food outstanding and wine perfectly matched - found myself in food heaven!. Service was equally as good. We went on a Wednesday and place packed to the rafters so its a good idea to book in advance. Accomodation also available if you feel... More

Had a fixed menu on a Sunday afternoon, and had a wonderful 2 and a half hours or so eating plates of tapas that were brought out. Great location, great atmosphere, waitress... More

First time for our group at Rustico and we were very impressed with the food & the service. Everything we ate was absolutely delicious. Most of us had the $49 set menu, which was in fact quite a good amount of food. One of our group had the beef cheeks which he reported as amazing! Also the panacotta from the... More

Second time we've been to this place after finding it by accident a few months ago. Absolutely fantastic tapas, as good as I've had in Spain and the service was great. The place was packed (as usual) but they had managed to reserve us the perfect table in the back for 5 of us and a little one. Kids pack... More

Not overly impressed. The service was ordinary, the food took an excessively long time to arrive, and then it was pretty bland. At the prices being charged i expect better!

Service, atmosphere, cuisine & location are all top notch. Have been back many times with small and large groups and never been disappointed. An absolute must-see and definitely worth the drive if not in the local area.

Had heard great things about this place and it did not disappoint. We (4 of us) had the 6 course degustation with matched wine and it was amazing! Great atmosphere and excellent service too. Nothing to fault, can't wait to go back.
