Perfect place to catch up with friends. Was great to have a conversation without feeling you have to talk above the crowd. Food was just beautiful

Had a fantastic meal with my husband. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere was great. Only complaint was that my husband ordered the special which was eye fillet steak risotto with chorizo and a red wine jus was absolutely beautiful but needs to be on the menu regularly. We try to visit regularly as we have always had great... More

Came here after a recommendation from a local in Daylesford for lunch. We had the anti-pesto to share ($25) which was more than enough for 2 people, 3-4 people could enjoy easily. I had the spicy pumpkin pizza ($19ish each) and my partner had a Hawaiian. Both were certainly large enough, hand made pizzas; neither too greasy or dry. Very... More

My partner and I dined at Rubens for dinner on a weekend getaway to Hepburn. We both enjoyed our meals. We had the lime salted calamari and Greek lamb pizza and both dishes were delicious. The staff and atmosphere were friendly and the prices very reasonable. Would definitely return.

My wife and I had dinner at Rubens on a weekend trip. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and really made our time special. The food was also great and fairly well priced. Definitely worth a visit!

We dined here for dinner when we were in Daylesford due to the good reviews. We had the dijon chicken, char - grilled fillet and the sticky date pudding. My chicken was cooked perfectly, but nothing special about it, sauce tasted like mushroom sauce with bacon and a small patch of cheese on top. My partner had the char-grilled fillet,... More

Delicious food, they only make size 'medium' pizza, however it was the same size as our 'large' in Melbourne, so there was plenty of pizza to go round. Risotto was flavoursome and also a generous amount. Pizza $15, Risotto $17.

This is the second time we came back to the restaurant and it was very nice. Good service, nice food and good value for money. Very helpful wait staff. Warm restaurant with a cosy fire. Quite popular.

Rubens is a regular with our family, with consistently wonderful food, a warm and inviting decor, and excellent staff. Italian inspired menu - with pizza, pasta and gnocchi to die for. Great coffee!
