Back again for the excellent burgers

Already a favourite for tapas and raciones, I was recommended to return for one of their famous burgers. These are properly made with a nice brioche bun, good meat patty cooked medium rare (without having to sign a disclaimer) which made it a very juicy sandwich. Mine had bacon and fried egg but... read more

Very happy with the generous delicious tapas here and quick efficient service! Love the empanada and just about everything on the tapa menu. Really cool inside with the barrels used as tables.

We as group of 4, including a Spaniard, walked into this place and were excited to try the tapas here. The place looked busy without any tables but not packed like in summer season. so our Spanish friend kindly asked if we could occupy the bar. Unfortunately, the grumpy waiter threw some rude remarks which our friend was quite reluctant... More

La Taberna de Rusty is a gem for wine and tapas of high quality at a very reasonable price. The wine bar has an impressive array of good to fine wines (Spanish) available by glass, even more by the bottle. My husband and I were delighted with the quality of the tapas, and, with the price. For a rather astonishing... More

This was our last day in Spain and we were feeling a little "tapas-ed out." Nonetheless, the TA reviews for Taberna Rusty were an inducement to try it. We were glad we did. We got there at 8:30 PM on a Wednesday so it hadn't become super busy just yet. The environment is a little Spartan -- but still cozy.... More

First visit to Rusty's. Very good tapas and good price. We returned for lunch the next day. Good variety and well cooked and presented. Very modern inside and something to please most clients.

The restaurant and food were great. Loved the courtyard out back and the ambience. Would definitely go back. Staff didn't speak English but worked to understand you. The house wine was very tasty and I recommend. Don't forget to look up to see the stork nests and maybe u will see one.

Having been in Alcala de Henares for 5 days I had the pleasure of visiting Rusty twice. One evening we went for tapas....most of which were only €1.20!! But regardless of the price, they were delicious. Great selection and really tasty. The staff were really helpful, suggesting we order a few first, and see how we go. We returned a... More

Lovely tapas, meat for meat lovers and a beautiful plate of grilled vegetables for my wife! Earthy local house red wine which is truly ethnic to the region. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is great.
