Had a 3 course meal with my mum this evening. On arrival the chef described all the bespoke vegan options he could offer and the food was incredible. Thanks so much for a lovely meal. Would recommend to anyone.

Another outing to Rubino. Never disappointed. Took friends who were blown away. Feels like home away from home. Except their food is superb

Had a great lunch - menu limited but quality food! Not cheap. Has stopped casual tea as concentrating on chef prepared high end food!

I rarely visit Rubino Kitchen, as I like to save it for special occasions, and it really is special. There is nothing quite like it within our county, in fact I’ve never been to anywhere like it, ever! An enormous amount of thought, planning and...More
