Had a lovely meal . Left it up to our waitress sue to order for us . Fresh seafood dishes kept coming out and they were delicious . Staff great and didn't rush us out the door. Overall food and ambiance was excellent. Can't wait to go back soon . Not cheap but well worth it.

Not having partaken of John Rubira's famous Seafood since the Fitzroy days I was looking forward to seeing their new venue and certainly was not disappointed. An old pub in the Port Melbourne area elegantly transformed into a comfortable dining area and bar.
The extensive blackboard menu was sooo tempting and the food that followed was excellent. A great wine list and excellent service combined to ensure we left well satisfied. John and Heather left that evenings food preparation to John's son who is obviously a chip off the old block!!
