Rubicon Restaurant Bar is a great Italian restaurant with a touch of sophistication. Its a place where you can relax and order from an extensive menu for a delicious and satisfying meal that won’t break the bank.
Service is attentive and friendly, with a real homey atmosphere. Would recommend trying out!
Favourite was the garlic moreton bay bugs. The garlic sauce was delicious and went perfectly with the bugs as well as the rice on the bottom. Very satisfying.
The mojito was deliciously refreshing! Just the right amount of sweetness and minty flavour. 8/10
A beautiful drink! Loved the sweet berry flavour. Super easy to drink. 7.5/10
The platter is definitely a beatuiful assortment of goodies. My favourite was the chargrilled baby octopus, lots of flavour and a a great chewy texture. The halloumi was also delicious and super crispy. Calamari was fried perfectly and super tender to eat. Would recommend trying out! 8/10
The pot of mussels is a generously sized entrée. More than enough for 2 or even more to share. The sauce it comes with is great for dipping the bread in. 7.5/10
Loved the buttery sauce generously covering the Morton Bay Bugs! It went perfectly well with the rice. The bugs themselves were delicious and didn’t really need much flavouring, but tasted even better with that great sauce. 9/10
The mexican parmigiana is one of the best I’ve had. Although its been crumbed and fried, the chicken is still super moist and tender. The combination of cheese, guac, sour cream and corn chips just makes this parmigiana a little bit more special than the norm. Would recommend. 8/10
A great dish for those who are fans of soupy dishes. The seafood in this one is marinated in a creamy and flavourful tomato sauce that is great on its own, but also perfect for soaking the bread in. 7.5/10
The nutella snake is made from one long piece of dough at the start (hence the snakeyness) then cut up into easy to eat portions and stacked up. Generous with the nutella and delicous with the ice cream. A must try for all the nutella fans. 8/10
Creamy and delicious! 8/10
