“A return visit that was really worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Returned to Maspalomas for a second holiday, and decided to pay Rustico another visit. And yes we were glad we did. Probably the best meal we had during the week. Pleasant surroundings, wonderful presentation of food, and a friendly welcome. Very good value too for quality offered. Well done to the owners/chef for keeping their standards high. Would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a high level dining experience.

“Why eat rubbish.....when you can eat in this style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Right first things first.....get a taxi to it . It's along a dark road and not immediately visible. Persevere.....you enter into a intimate German orientated atmosphere of calmness. Menu printed but English translation. Again 6 people3 adults 3 teenagers. All made feel very welcome. Nice warm feeling...once you find it.
Daily specials on super Delph al a credit to Chef for presentation. Bottle of Stratos red for drinks. Fresh fish , the best fish soup I ever had....thin no gloppy flour to thicken it!. Young man had meat of highest quality......we know we're from Ireland.
Original deserts again genuine Tart Tatin to die for and all plates cleared.
Following La Selete last night these are where you should eat ....if you like you food in Gran Canaria in 2013 ...adios.

“Quirky, warm and welcoming.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

It was a pleasure to return to this delightful restaurant having not been for a couple of years. It has a lovely relaxed atmosphere, friendly and efficient front of house staff and good honest food - with a twist. We are about to return for a third visit on our two week break. Beautiful fresh fish, tender meats and desserts to delight all; beautifully presented and served with aplomb! The Stratus wines are Canarian and well worth a try. Highly recommended!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

A gem. Good attentive and friendly service and the food beautifully presented and good quality. Went twice in one week. Bavarian style and small,just off the roundabout with plenty of parking.A few Euros more than downtown but really worth it.

“Excellent dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I had dinner in this restaurant twice, first time there was a free open air table, the second only one for 4 persons (I'm alone). No problem the table was quickly split and a few moments later a couple came so it was definitely worth while.
