Rubicon Bar & Restaurant is surely the best place in Essendon to realise what Italian cuisine can be like at its best. A lot of places around Melbourne get by just by putting out the expected Italian cliches, but Rubicon Bar & Restaurant on Mt Alexander Road seem determined to delve much further into the Italian culinary canon and pull out some real gems, from homemade pastas to seafood specialties. They also offer some delicious internationally inspired options, like American pork ribs and Moroccan chicken salad, so there’s sure to be something to please everybody, and all beautifully presented. Rubicon Bar & Restaurant is great for groups, because their elegant contemporary venue on Mt Alexander Road is spacious but refined, with a lounge area and fully stocked bar at hand with all the appropriate liquid accompaniments to complement an Italian meal of this quality.
Great food it’s the best steak in Melb and I’ve had a lot of steaks make sure you order the rib eye it’s a bit pricey but with the quality of food it’s well worth it.
Great food, quick service and fantastic staff. Couldn’t fault this place, we even received free drinks because it was an anniversary dinner... so impressed. Thanks
The food and the service were fantastic. Atmosphere was great. We didn’t have to wait too long and they really looked after the kids (9, 7 and 2).
