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.

Mojito $18

The mojito was deliciously refreshing! Just the right amount of sweetness and minty flavour. 8/10

Strawberry Caiprioska $18

A beautiful drink! Loved the sweet berry flavour. Super easy to drink. 7.5/10

Tasting Platter for 2 $37.50 – Crispy Haloumi
Tasting Platter for 2 $37.50 – Chargrilled Baby Octopus
Tasting Platter for 2 $37.50 – Rocket Salad

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

Australian Mussels Pot $22.50 with Kalamata Olives, Garlic and Chilli in Napoli Sauce & Crusted Bread

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

Garlic Moreton Bay Bugs $42.50 cooked in a Creamy Garlic Sauce served with Rocket Parmesan Salad and Saffron Rice

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

Mexicana Chicken Parmigiana with Tomato Salsa, Jalapenos, Nachos and Mozzarella topped with Sour Cream $29.50 served with Thick Cut Battered Chips and Italian Salad

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

Zuppa Di Pesce $29.50 with Hervey Bay King Prawns, Scallops, Calamari, Clams, Mussels, Moreton Bay Bugs Pan Fried with Crushed Garlic and Onion cooked in a Tomato and Herb Broth

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

Nutella Snake $16.50 Rolled Nutella Pizza topped with Fresh Strawberry and Vanilla Ice Cream

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

Cappuccino

Creamy and delicious! 8/10
