Loved the menu. Food was great & cocktails were delicious. We had starters, main courses & a shared dessert. Good attentive service too.

We had a lovely meal this evening at rustic stone. There were a few blips along the way which aren’t worth noting as the service by a staff member named Micheal made it very enjoyable. The food was lovely and the new Japenese fusion twist...on the menu was very authentic style street food and delicious. Highly recommend the Japanese chicken. An enjoyable evening with a great waiter.More

Just popped in for a night out with the girls (5 of us) during restrictions where table service was the only option. Was charged €50 for a service charge which is disgusting at the end of the night for DRINKS. They are completely taking ADVANTAGE....I wouldn't return to this greedy establishment.More

The food was nice enough, the tables are tiny and you’re almost sitting on top of the person next to you. My breadboard that was attached to the table actually fell onto the floor. I was given another one though which was nice.

Popped in on spec and had no problem getting a table. Staff were fantastic. The food was very good, but very small portions. Side dishes were small and I was still hungry after 3 courses ( I don’t usually eat desert, but had to to...fill up) my biggest problem were the prices! For what we got, I felt it was very over priced!More

Was here for a leisurely lunch with a good friend . Firstly I was surprised to see the restaurant so quiet at a Friday lunchtime . Menu options were not exciting and I found myself struggling to choose , and in the end choosing a...penne Pasta dish that I could easily have done at home , the starter charcuterie was better and the dessert was quite uninspiring. As for the service , it was casual and not very engaging , furthermore when the wine was presented it was not the one I ordered but neither apology or explanation was offered. All this might be fine in a restaurant charging lessor prices but when you pay €25 for two G+T’s as an example it should be fantastic and it was not . Not a bad experience but could have been so much better with a bit of enthusiasm by the team.More

We got a lovely Christmas present of a voucher for the Rustic Stone (purchased directly from them). My girlfriend and I made a reservation for this weekend just gone. We were really excited to try this place for the first time as we had heard...great things...but unfortunately in the end calling it an anticlimax just doesn't go far enough. We got 2 starters, 2 mains (both the "Rolls Royce" of Sirloin on the stone @36Euro each) with 3 sides to share and a dessert also. Pretty much everything was massively sub par apart from the minestrone with chorizo soup I had as a starter...that was lovely to be fair, and a really good portion. The service was also fine, no complaints there. The biggest issue for us however were the cuts of meat. I don't know why they offer Sirloin as the best single portion, why not striploin or fillets too? The sirloin cuts we got were awful. One was full of gristle and the other, pretty much half of it was fat. Fat can be nice on a properly cooked steak done on real heat but when you have a mildly warm stone, that is cooling, trying to cook fat...no chance. you are just slow cooking it into inedible mush. I've attached a picture of what was left of one and bear in mind my girlfriend made a good stab of eating quite a lot more of exactly what you see in that picture. I would have left twice that amount. One other comment. Please clean your toilets more regularly! You have shared toilets and from what I encountered I feel sorry for the women who have to use the facilities. The one saving grace is that we didn't go to the toilets before we sat down to eat. Granted it's some patrons who need to be potty trained but still, they are not the ones who are running the place. The idea of this place is great but please serve a wider range of cuts and look after the finer details.More

I also don’t know, mine is a Teenager and eats what I eat. Saying that it might not be the best place for small kids, it is more of an adult oriented restaurant, kids would just get bored
