They stop serving food at 9pm. If you can't get a seat you can always get a takeaway. The food is Mediterranean style... read more

We had dinner on a recommendation from our hotel. The food was paesane: pizza, pasta, risotto and a couple of mains. We both had pasta and both were generous and tasty. We had the 'doughnuts' for dessert but they were not as described: no real taste of apple or brandy. The service was efficient and very pleasant and they were... More

My wife & I had dinner here. We ordered the seafood chicken and the chicken risotto. Both meals were very tasty. Finished off with the "must have" Italian donuts. Delicious! So much so, we went back the next night for dinner & had equally delicious meals. Excellent service and tasty, wholesome meals.

Great venue, lovely attentive staff and food very good. Arancini balls and doughnuts were to die for, garlic prawns a little bland, but overall out meal and wine was excellent. Great night out :)

Just came across this restaurant when walking. It was a nice surprise as they had an open fire going and friendly staff. The food was good and not too expensive.

I visited Rubens with my partner on our weekend getaway. Such a fantastic atmosphere, so cosy and warm, and the service was brilliant - food and drinks came out without any hassles (and tasted amazing), and the over all experience keeps us coming back.

The venue is quite accessible to passing grade. On a whim my wife and I went for an evening meal - European style. Well presented and tasty meal served in a reasonable time. A wide wine listing was available though not used. The well presented food was consumed with gusto. The staff were both courteous and attentive to our needs.

After a generous entree serve of garlic prawns (10 prawns!), served with rice and salad, I'm glad I saved some space for dessert. We decided to share the sticky date pudding. Delicious! I'm not sharing next time ;-)
