Spending over 20 years in the music business, Max had always dreamed of a place he could create that catered for his love of great food and also be a relaxed and enjoyable space with a great soundtrack.
He’s enlisted the help of long-term musical partner Simon Marlin who he enjoyed many years of success with under The Shapeshifters guise and launched in September 2016. With the boys long-term roots in West London it was always going to see Rubio begin its adventure close to home.
Rubio’s is the best restaurant in Harlesden. Food and service always on point.
My son and I went there for coffee and chai. It was very pleasant, nice and chilled just what we were looking for and we really enjoyed the drinks.
Love to support local businesses
LOVED it - as always. Great food - nice place/ perfect spot to watch people go by.
Very friendly and welcoming service, good quality food
Delicious food, friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere.
Rubio’s is an amazing place to eat, such an asset to Harlesden. Brilliant night/food as always!!
Not enough staff to service but they r really friendly :)
nice warm service with relaxed and quiet atmosphere
Amazing local cafe - tasty food, good portions and very attentive and relaxed service.
Had a really lovely family night out at Rubios. Pizza's were absolutely delicious, just a bit heavy on the cheese for our normal taste, but next time will just ask them to use less as the flavour was amazing. Really good value for money and great food.
Lovely atmosphere and helpful staff. Quirky design, particularly loved the record wall. Would definitely recommend.
As always the food was great, fresh and delicious, great value, and the Atmosphere and clientele as well. Unfortunately the booking system is just chaotic. Online booking made a week in advance. Email confirmation received. We Rang on the day to Double check and no, they had no record of the booking. Ok....Phone booking made then and there - but when we showed up - no record of that either. 🤦♀️ All tables full. The manager moved a couple of staff who on their break to free a table for us - but this is pretty poor really. Our first time out in over 4 months - could have lived without the hassle. Service was ok but the current staff nowhere near as friendly as the previous ones . To be fair maybe they are a bit wobbly after long closure. Hope things will shape up soon.
Great food, staff and atmosphere all day. Breakfast menu is fab and pizzas a delicious
Great restaurant - quality food and excellent service. Have been for brunch before but this is the first time I have been there in the evening - totally recommend!
Been here several times. Went back for breakfast the next day.
Good music, good food. beautiful Café. Wold recommend this to a friend.
Friendly and relaxed atmosphere with a good selection of food, including for vegetarians and vegans.
Rubio is a great little place with amazing brunch food throughout the day and thin crust pizza in the evening. We went in the evening this time and caught the last live music session. It's really set up well for listening to music! So hopefully, as more people discover Rubio, they'll be able to resurrect this night.
Service was excellent and went the extra mile. Music policy seems to have changed and wasn’t keen as seemed to be a radio station. Food was great.
Have been to Rubio's a few times & always had a good night. a great neighbourhood restaurant & a live music venue too!
This cafe/retaurant is a great addition to the neighborhood - well run, relaxed but classy, with thoughful, well-executed dishes, a good range of drinks and always fine music.
Had a delicious starter and pizza here. Food was fresh and very tasty. Lovely place.. uber trendy.. digging the cool sounds of house music in the background... friendly staff.. will definately be coming back here again!
Good food, well priced, nice service and a great stylish restaurant.
