Felt a little disappointed by end of evening. We were large group so could only choose a set menu, some of which didn't suit my palate. The low light level made identifying the food a challenge. But apart from that pretty good.

I like Tapas. But I was disappointed. I ordered the oyster special with a glass of champagne and 15 mins later I was told they had run out.

The food was very expensive for plain, unimaginative, deep fried food. The taste was very bland. The pork belly was gummy. Nothing like the fresh, tasty tapas that I have experienced in Spain. We were stuck in a small corner, so dark you could not read the menu, and with an icy southerly wind wrapping around our ankles. The table... More

The Tapas on the menu was fantastic, we had a set Tapas menu and every dish was amazing. We had trouble eating it all and the Sangria was one of the nicest I've had. We met friends there and the seating was warm and cosy, great atmosphere right on the esplanade. Worth every cent. Would go back any time.

Went here for the first (and only) time. The tapas were completely bland, tasteless & with absolutely no flavour as well as being ridiculously overpriced for what was served. Extremely disappointing.

Do yourself a favour and dine here at least once!! I had always heard great reviews but never had the chance. Now I can't wait to come back sometime! I came with a girlfriend for lunch and we ordered from the 6 meal desgustation menu (served with half glasses of wine) First up we had the scallops - absolute perfection!... More

Very friendly and accommodating customer service - all smiles, nothing to difficult, even when showing up without a booking, food is excellent, not just to the mouth, but to the wallet as well!!

Have you ever had the chance to sample Spanish Tapas on La Rambla, Barcelona while soaking in the European Sun? Or enjoy the local Sangria while sitting at a Tapas Bar on the beautiful beaches of San Sebastian with Jamon hanging from the ceiling? The Spanish have a beautiful way of life and combined with their unique cuisine they have created a lifestyle which is arguably the envy of the rest of the world. Here at Rustico Tapas Bar we try to replicate the relaxed and warm atmosphere Spain offers as well as fresh, seasonal, delicious Tapas incorporating local produce that everyone can enjoy. Tapas are small plates of food that are ideally shared amongst the table to encourage conversation. With the help of a jug of Sangria, or two, this style of food creates a fun and easy environment for people to socialise and unwind. So immerse yourself in the Spanish culture and treat yourself to our award winning food and friendly service, please make yourself at home in our small slice of Spain. "Barringa Ilena corazón content" (Full stomach, happy heart.)
