I was rather surprised - for a while I though this was just another pub with a restaurant, but it turns out that it is a lot more than that - it is a Spanish restaurant with an adjoining bar. They have a huge selection of wines, and the bar staff are really friendly (though there was one time that... More

Firstly I have to say this was a dinner as part of the Melbourne food festival hosted by Miguel Salvestre from the living room television program. He provided a very entertains evening and was very proactive meeting all the people attending. The staff and services during the evening where all first class. We had 6 courses matched with spanish wines.... More

I have dined at RB's on 3 occasions and cant say enough about the quality and variety of food. The eye fillet @$26 is exceptional and rivals other top restaurants who charge $35 -$40. The service is professional and very attentive and the drinks menu is extensive.

Thought that I had heard lunch could be really good. Turns out that it was!!! Lunch specials are a great deal. An ample, tender steak with fries and garden salad...$12. Friendly, attentive staff.

So I went tonight after my friend insisted we I based on friends comments. The long and short. We ordered paella, grilled veg and fries. The grilled eggs and fries were great. Veggies were really flavoursome. The paella? Worst ever. I complained. The excellent bar guy was apologetic and 'talked to the manager' came back and told us he could... More
