Definitely will come back. Food and service was amazing. Only issue I had was I ordered a glass of sparkling wine and it was flat.

The whole experience was lovely. Great service, amazing food, beautiful views. The perfect dinner for us on our child free weekend. This was the third time we have been here and it just seems to get better each time. Definitely won’t be the last time we visit.

About Rustica

Rustica Newcastle Beach was launched in August of 2011; a collaboration between chef Mark Hosie and passionate hospitality man, Will Creedon. Meaning ‘rural’ in Italian, Rustica was inspired by the social style of Mediterranean dining, the spice of North African cuisine and the emphasis on honest, superior-quality produce; a quality you’ll find at the heart of cooking in countries of the Med Basin. Overlooking Newcastle Beach, Rustica offers stunning views from the outdoor plaza on King Street through to their remarkable coastline across Shortland Esplanade. Not to be outshone, however, is the Dion Ackland-designed interior which features authentic and hand-crafted pieces from both local artisans and obscure foreign locations. Their philosophy on dining is that it’s an experience to be enjoyed and remembered. In the words of Mark and Will, ‘eat, drink and be merry!’
