Very nice food and great service, reasonable prices

We were staying in Hepburn Springs within walking distance from Rubens (although we drove, because it was freezing!) and decided not to go into Daylesford to eat. So glad we picked Rubens. It had a lovely casual dining atmosphere, but was cosy and reasonably stylish. The service was good and my... read more

Fantastic food and great atmosphere. Particularly enjoyed the pasta and gnocchi. Even though we were full, we had to order dessert and didn't regret it. The sticky date pudding and mousse were delicious. Strangely, the only thing I felt was missing were table cloths.

My wife and I dined at Rubens mid-week just after Easter. The restaurant was busy with a relaxed, informal atmosphere complete with open fire place. The service was both friendly and efficient. The wine list offered a good selection of interesting local and Victorian wines by the glass. We both enjoyed a fantastic main course of salmon and roast vegetables... More

Chose a variety of vegetarian meals to share between four of us. All were great ! Nothing was too much effort for the staff In an area of lots of pretentious restaurants this was certainly just a great relaxing place to eat. Would definitely return on another visit

We dined here over the long weekend in June which we booked a week before we left. They have two dining sitings; 6-8pm and 8pm onwards. Even though it was so cold outside, inside was warm and inviting with the open fire place. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. We had the Zeppole Italian Doughnuts for dessert...

Family friend told us we mustn't pass Ruebens! So glad we didn't!! Food & service was impeccable. Gnocchi & risotto cooked to perfection. Sticky date pudding was delicious! We would travel the 3 hours again JUST to eat there. Please do a favour to yourself & eat there. Service was faultless too

We went to Rubens for lunch a couple of months ago, and I still think about the food! If it wasn't 2 hours away, I'd be there every week. The food is simply incredible. A classic selection of beautifully made Mediterranean food. I highly recommend Rubens!
