Unfortunately we arrived just after a number of large groups of people had arrived so our meals took over a hour to come out. The staff were very hospitable though, keeping us updated & offering free drinks/ desserts. Have been here before but this was the first bad experience we've had. We'll definitely go back and still highly recommended. Staff... More

We turned up on a Saturday night with no reservation, yet they still managed to find us a table. Sarge our waiter, was very helpful with options from the menu. I had the signature pork ribs, full rack, be prepared for a huge meal. The steaks come in various sizes depending on your hunger. The food is gloriously yummy and... More

We were given a Red Balloon experience and thoroughly enjoyed the rib feast for two. The staff were efficient and friendly. The portions were huge and we couldn't finish everything but the staff are used to this and offered a takeaway box - we took our dessert home and enjoyed it hours later! The shared entrée platter was the highlight... More

We went to Ribs and Rump for my sons birthday. The lamb ribs are to die for. Expensive but I don't mind paying the price for quantity and quality. The deserts are very delicious also. The best service is in the evening. We went for lunch one day and didn't receive the same service and the evening.

Really nice meals - and the staff were very good. My partner had a steak which he said was good and I had a salad. What we hadn't expected was to be paying pretty top dollar for a steak that came with chips - but no salad or vegetables. For the price paid a side plate of salad or veges... More

We had dinner at this venue twice in a row because it was so good. Although the first night was extremely busy the young lady recognised us on the second night as being there the previous evening. Impressed!

I've been to this place a few times and have reserved my judgement until now. I recently ordered fish of the day and was delivered a cooked thong (that's a rubber sandal in Australia). Tough and inedible. Other visits have been underwhelming. It's like there is no-one checking the plate before dishes are served which is unforgivable in an expensive... More

Just wrapped up a super meal at Ribs and Rumps. Firstly, the staff was amazing: friendly, helpful and efficient. We sat outside - a good choice in a nice atmosphere. The place was packed and people were enjoying themselves. AND our food was really well prepared and super tasty (we had the wings and steaks). Want a great place to... More
