“Want some attitude?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

But in a good way...like Paris used to be? We've been stopping here for wine and small plates for 24 years...same Monsieur and Madame...same decor, same menu.
Because we don't speak enough French to fool anyone, we all just
kind of chuckle at our lack of understanding. Gotta have a sense of humor to go here but soooo authentic.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We stumbled in during a busy lunch service and were hussled upstairs and squashed in amongst a whole motley crew of people...almost sitting on each others laps (damn Parisian tables are small!)...The staff were fab! Friendly and efficient even though our waitress was quite literally run off her feet! We had a bottle of Beaujolais with our Rillette and a Cote du Rhone (only half ones mind - it was lunch time!) with our mains, a boeuf bourgignon and a porc something or other. Everything was fantastic! Rustic country French cooking at it's best. We were too full for pud, although we would have shared the tart au poivre had the chap at the next table got the last and largest slice! I was tempted to ask for a taste, but when I looked again he'd scoffed the lot! A must visit!

“The real paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

It was great to experience something of the "real" Paris when dining at Le Rubis. It was simple, plate of charcuterie on bread and plate of cheese on bread, with a glass or two of red, but it provided a very memorable experience. We seemed to be the only foreigners there that night and it was wonderful to watch the French drop in for a glass of something and have a chat on the way home. It felt like you were in a French village rather than a large city. The owners were very friendly too.

“Excellent wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I first visited this wine bar in the mid 1980s and it has not changed at all! The wine is still excellent and good value and the food is good quality french family bistro food. This place has a loyal clientele and has a real feel of the local neighbourhood.
