Food was good but not amazing. Service the same. Wine list very average and no stock of the wine we wanted. In all, just average.

Had a family special celebration dinner here and it was great. We had the banquet which they included some gf options. All food was nice with plenty to eat. On street parking with a bit of a walk to restaurant. Great friendly service. Only two unisex toilets for diners so was a bit of a lengthy queue but otherwise good night had by all.

Rustica is located in the Royal complex overlooking Newcastle Beach. It has beautiful views. The food offers both a normal menu (entree/mains/dessert) as well as a selection of tapas dishes.

We ate there for dinner on a weeknight. The restaurant was busy but not packed but I would recommend booking and asking for a water view. The food was high quality and tasty,the service was attentive, but not over attentive. I only rated it 4/5 as although the restaurant was not full, all patrons were seated very near on another. Strongly recommended.

My husband and I were having a birthday dinner.
We decided to order scallops, squid and zucchini flowers.
This was all served at the same time and very quickly. Our booking was at 6.30 and knowing we had to leave by 8.30 knew we had plenty of time to relax and enjoy and drink a nice bottle of red wine.
The wait person we felt was pushing us out. We wanted a relaxed night but as soon as a plate was finished she was clearing up.
We ordered the pecan tart to share. She bought it the bill and said no hurry, it was 7.45.
We finished up and left.
Saying this the meal was fantastic once again. Three girl who took my booking and greeted and seated us fantastic.
Next visit we will request not to be rushed through.
