    As a family, eating out can be a challenge as we have 2 coeliacs, 2 with peanut allergies and one with some other legume allergies (I'm the only one with no allergies or intolerances other than just generally being a grumpy old curmudgeon!!), so Rubyos is brilliant in offering a lot of choice that suited all of these needs! The flavours were great, and the dishes being generally small share plate/tapas style servings, we were able to enjoy a great deal of variety in the course of the meals. They offer a range of banquets and degustation options, but we were happy to order from the a la carte menu. The staff were very helpful, and it was easy to add serves as there were 5 of us and the standard dishes generally come in serves of four. We were also on a tight timeframe, and they got the food out promptly so we weren't late in getting to the event we had after the meal. Can't wait to eat there again!

    The food was lovely in quality, range of options and presentation as expected from previous visits. Also, nice to buy wine at reasonable prices. Maybe 2X bottle shop but certainly not 4X or 5X. Quite quiet at Friday lunch, other peoples loss. you can do much, much worse!

    We went with two friends and had the vegan banquet for one and the seafood banquet for the other three. Food was absolutely delicious and there was plenty of it and plenty of variation. We were all really happy with the banquet choices. Would definitely go back there.

    I am a regular diner at this gem of a restaurant. Badrul and his team provided a dining experience right up to their usual standard last night. The "Celebration Menu" option was perfect for the occasion and the introduction of the charred eggplant involtini to accompany the signature baked Atlantic salmon and decadent desert platter along with the rest of the superb menu was perfect. Despite the extensive wine list, we took up the BYO option on this occasion and the Tyrells Vat47 chardonnay was a perfect partner to the menu. We invited another couple to join us last night and Rubyo's is now on their "go to" dining list when they return to the City.

    Had a client dinner at Rubyos with someone who came from overseas and it was the best choice I could have made. We both loved the food - so fresh and just a perfect blend of flavours in every dish. The ambiance was so relaxing and aesthetically pleasing. Am now a big fan. And the desserts we chose were as delicious as they were visual works of art. Highly recommend.

    I enjoyed an early Saturday evening meal and was pleasantly surprised with all aspects of this restaurant. The decor was simple but elegant. I felt that we had enough space to guarrentee privacy and intimacy. We ordered Margaritas, the seasonal sampler menu and sorbet icecream. Soft crab was delicious but all menu items were excellent. Service was attentive. Would go back again

    For over 15 years , Rubyos has been our go to for special occasions: 40th |45th| 50| 55 | 56 | 80 | 90 - obviously for all different people :) Such delicious food and its great that we can have the vegetarian menus while our friends if they choose, can have the non-vegetarian menus which recently, some overseas guests from Sweden said was fantastic to experience. Thank you Rubyos for being there.
