“Amazing dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Attended Rubyo's for Valentines day dinner.

Set menu and amazing wine choices to match. Great welcoming service. Despite reading the negative current reviews and having eaten here before, i couldn't understand how Rubyo's would get even a terrible review.

Not quite 5 star but close it.

Outside of valentines day, the menu is delicious and innovative.

If your looking to impress your date, or a team for work, Rubyo's is definitely a place that will help you impress. It isn't bottom end pricing too, so be prepared to have a respectable bill at the end.

“Amazing food and outstanding service! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

We have dined at this restaurant many times and have always been impressed.
The service is outstanding. Nothing is every a problem and waitresses are always pleasant helpful and go out of their way to ensure your needs are met.
Liz the owner is our favourite. She always goes the extra mile, coming to each table to greet guests always smiling and accommodating.
The food is a grazing menu and we as a couple usually order between 4 and 6 dishes. We always love our meals and never leave feeling hungry. The menu changes regularly which we love.

This is definitely one of our favourite restaurants in Sydney.

“Grazing in Newtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Coming to the end of our holiday, our 'Sydneysider' friends suggested a grazing evening, Whilst we weren't sure what this entailed we readily agreed as their description made it sound fun. And it was! After seeking advice from the very helpful server,eight of us chose our favourite dish and out they came one after the other. Some hot some cold.All in portion sizes for eight to share. Other reviewers have complemented the salads, so would we. The food is best described as fusion but so well done and in just the right size portions, just as advised. The wine selection is good and the prices reasonable. We arrived a 1800 for an early meal and were surprised how quickly it filled up. We did notice that the tables were generally laid up for parties of 6 or so and it does seem that the style of food and presentation suits a party rather than a couple, who would not be able to taste as many dishes. Being located in Newtown it is a short bus ride away from the CBD and other tourist ares but the short ride is well worth it. I wish we had more places like this at similar prices in the UK

“Fabulous New Years Eve experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

12 course fixed menu with 5 courses of wines. My wife and I don't eat red meat so we requested alternate choices for a few courses. Everything was fantastic and the alternates were even better than the scheduled meal. Wonderful service and a near perfect experience. Our friends will be regulars after this first try. Go and enjoy!

“Nice restaurant for any special occasion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Had a lovely birthday brunch at this restaurant which has simple but elegant décor served by friendly staff.
Certainly a nice place to celebrate a special occasion with its great menu selection from burger to steak - the Breakfast Bruschetta on multigrain toast, avocado, roasted tomato, dressed rocket & juicy bacon goes well with the 2 poached eggs (like the perfect poached eggs by Curtis Stone).

It is conveniently located at the busy King street bus route and has some parking spots just outside the restaurant or the side street which is around the corner.
