Lovely dining experience. Welcoming, lovely table settings, great staff. Really tasty share plates and good wine. Price was excellent for the degustation options. Value for money 5 stars. Definitely coming back. Great for a romantic dinner for 2.

Food is worth 3 stars, but be aware the restaurant encourages reviews with the offer of a monthly giveaway $100 voucher. The scheme is advertised hard on every table and does nothing for the vibe.

Rubyos is one of our favourites and today was no exception. Scrumptious lunch banquet for two at $30 each including a glass of wine. Exceptional fusion food and great service.

Celebrated a family birthday. Our table of 6 chose the Seasonal Banquet, which had 8 different dishes. Timing of each dish was well spaced. All enjoyed the food, service and ambience.
