About Rubicon Bar Restaurant

Experience the flavours of Italy at Rubicon Bar Restaurant on Mount Alexander Road in Essendon. Named after a northern Italian river linked to Julius Caesar, Rubicon celebrates all things Roman, luring diners into a chic vibe where they can ponder choices from a seasonal menu with a glass of vino in hand. Settle in with a seafood platter for two with mussels, fried calamari, jumbo prawns, Moreton Bay bugs and oysters; before moving on to traditional mains, burgers, pizza and pasta options. Be tempted by slow-cooked lamb shanks, served with potato puree, sautéed carrots and lamb jus; or perhaps housemade gnocchi with pork ragu hits the spot, alongside wood-fired rosemary and extra virgin olive oil focaccia. For a decadent dolci, opt for churros with white chocolate and Nutella ganache.
