Description: 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.)

The food, atmosphere and service were great. Live music washed down with delicious sangria! What more could you want.. Not cheap but worth the venture. Be sure to book so you get the best table!

unfortunately this fantastic place is no secret so if you want to make sure you get in, a reservation is a must. an excellent place to meet with friends or even for a romantic dinner for two this place is perfect. the food is great with a good selection of cocktails but the most popular drink from what i've seen is their delicious mix of Sangria (a must at any Tappas bar) all overlooking the park and beautiful Rockingham Beach.

First impression is that you've walked into a funky Melbourne eatery with a lovely interior.
Then the menu choices are backed up with great tapas dishes that are cleverly cooked to bring out the flavours.

This is authentic tapas...the seafood paella is almost as good as where it originated on the white beaches of Valencia. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that the female owner had been to the cafe strip on Valencia's beaches to make the paella as authentic as possible.
Nothing greasy here at all...perfect pork belly, crisp calamari and choice chicken.
The place was packed and the location is very impressive, among a strip of new cafes at the northern end of Rockingham overlooking the park and beach.
Worth driving from Perth to visit every time.

This restaurant is situated on the Rockingham foreshore overlooking Cockburn Sound. It has a very lively feel to it, the menu is very comprehensive and the food is fresh and delicious. The staff and very helpful and friendly, definately worth the trip to Rockingham.

Staff forgot about us a bit, sangria is undrinkable. Nice sounding foods, but way too greasy and overcooked. Very nice ingredients, good location.
