Very Spanish

Had lunch at de Rusty, good value simple fare, nice cold beer, the setting is rustic and service is fast and efficient (until you ask for the bill) Nice place for a quick lunch or a long session of tapas in the evening.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, even going to the kitchen to fetch a sample of something when they couldn't translate the menu. Food was delicious, both tapas and main dishes. No waiting, prompt service and a good place for small or larger groups.

I am currently here while I write. Highly recommend this place for the Tapas which are delicious. They have a nice variety of german and french beers and the people working here are really nice and helpful. Too bad they don't have a Terraza to eat out in the open.

If you are a craving a burger, this is the place. It has it's Spanish magical taste and touch. I had the goat-cheesse burger acompanied with a "caña" (beer)...simply the best. Good ambience, music and sports on the tvs. Felt away at home. Enjoy!

Very happy with the generous delicious tapas here and quick efficient service! Love the empanada and just about everything on the tapa menu. Really cool inside with the barrels used as tables.

Already a favourite for tapas and raciones, I was recommended to return for one of their famous burgers. These are properly made with a nice brioche bun, good meat patty cooked medium rare (without having to sign a disclaimer) which made it a very juicy sandwich. Mine had bacon and fried egg but the one with goats cheese looked great.... More

We as group of 4, including a Spaniard, walked into this place and were excited to try the tapas here. The place looked busy without any tables but not packed like in summer season. so our Spanish friend kindly asked if we could occupy the bar. Unfortunately, the grumpy waiter threw some rude remarks which our friend was quite reluctant... More

La Taberna de Rusty is a gem for wine and tapas of high quality at a very reasonable price. The wine bar has an impressive array of good to fine wines (Spanish) available by glass, even more by the bottle. My husband and I were delighted with the quality of the tapas, and, with the price. For a rather astonishing... More

This was our last day in Spain and we were feeling a little "tapas-ed out." Nonetheless, the TA reviews for Taberna Rusty were an inducement to try it. We were glad we did. We got there at 8:30 PM on a Wednesday so it hadn't become super busy just yet. The environment is a little Spartan -- but still cozy.... More

First visit to Rusty's. Very good tapas and good price. We returned for lunch the next day. Good variety and well cooked and presented. Very modern inside and something to please most clients.
