Great food, was slightly put off by the 11.50 euro and a bottle of wine price - thought it would be cheap and nasty. Went off the menu with four of us (all good eaters) drinks and food bill around 90 euro for the first visit (we over ordered) and 80 euro for the second visit (we ordered well).

Was going to go back again for our wedding anniversary but the Rubicon Palace chef poisoned my wife with a dodgy prawn a couple of nights before (avoid Rubicon Palace at all costs).

Don't bother with the drink that comes from the bottle with a LIZARD IN IT - tastes as bad as it looks.

We've ate here in previous years and went back again this year. Absolutely lovely food, no grease or stodge at all, all very fresh. The waitress who we remembered from previous years has been there for 9 years and has an excellent way with the customers, very friendly & pleasant & no rushing to get you to leave. I can almost taste the food now..............lovely.

Brown chicken noodle soup and brown Wanton soup, they should be made from chicken stock not Bisto Grannules. Deep fried prawn toast (yeuch) and greasy salt and pepper ribs. Chicken with spring onions sans ginger, tasteless and you guess it, brown. Duck with orange sauce, crisp and burnt, egg fried rice actually edible. How can there be so many good reviews, some people must eat desperate Chinese. Avoid.
