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.)

Large selection of tasty well prepared and presented Tapas style dishes. For two people suggest you start with three dishes and add more as required. A reasonable selection of drinks are available. Lots of easy free parking close to the restaurant.

Went to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, yesterday.
It has been over a year since we last ate in Rustico, we used to go the for lunch about once per month. Been travelling a lot lately.
The food is expensive in comparison to the portion size, but is high quality and well presented.
Hope I'm not sounding like one of those W#@kers on learn to cook shows.
The cafe that Rustico has around the corner could have good potential but the few times we have been left us feeling the hygiene within was not too good, so we don't go there now.

What a treat. The selection of dishes made for a great family evening, especially when there were a couple of fussy teens one not eating meat and one not eating fish. The standard serve per plate is four but can be adjusted to accommodate the size of the group. AND the food is good. Standout dishes were pork belly, petit mignon, meatballs, and barrramundi. The meal ended on a (sugar) high with churros con chocolate. Extensive drinks list for all tastes. Friendly efficient smiling service throughout the evening despite getting really busy. If you are in the Rockingham area this should be your first port of call.

Arrived on the hottest day of the year to our favorite Window table. The first round of drinks took 15 minutes to arrive so we ordered a second straight away. Of course it arrived with a minute. As usual service is dependant on the time and how busy they are. However the food was incredible. The swordfish was a bit dry but it didn't take away from the flavours and experience of this incredible tapas bar.

Great atmosphere and very good food. Love the tapas... sure... Australian prices rather than Spanish, but excellent quality. I liked the home-made olives, the chorizo was just like back home and the fusion-style dishes I tried were great.

One of my favourite places to go out for a bottle of wine with my beautiful wife!

If you're going as a couple they can usually find you a seat. If you're in a group, be sure to call ahead. Good setting on the Rockingham shore front. A few other nice late bars close by if you're on a night out.
