Loved this restaurant so much! Food was absolutely delicious, even my non GF friends love it as well. Nice vibe and good cocktails are a nice bonus as well!

Well the menu and venue might be 100% GF (claimed and I assume correct) but the service and quality of food vs price is very lacking. I recommend skipping and heading to there sister restaurant; Repeat Offender who did every single thing noticeably better I wasn’t I’ll after dining here and tried 6 dishes. The pricing was up there but we don’t mind if the food is fantastic however my partner and I felt the prices didn’t justify the meals, portions and in general, flavour and flavour combinations. None of the dishes warranted the price charged. The welcome was meh, passed off amongst 3 waitresses, one that asked if we had a booking, then one to check our booking then one to take us to our table, just awkward but whatever no big deal. Get asked for our drinks order and we wanted a favourite new gin (we checked on their menu before going and they have 7 gins listed) but were then advised they were all out of gin. They charge a premium like they are a premium restaurant but not premium enough to restock their spirits and instead just go without? So had a margarita that wasn’t amazing but OK. Certainly didn’t want to pay for another though. We ordered all small meals to share between us and unlike Repeat Offender the waitresses and chef didn’t think to stagger them, all meals came out at once and couldn’t fit comfortably on the small 2 person table we had so had to put a couple on the bench seat next to us while we cleared a couple of plates. As I said the quality of meals just wasn’t what we’d hoped. Did the same the night before at Repeat Offender and we LOVED everything we ordered. Went to pay and splitting the bill seemed quite the chore and they couldn’t provide 2 seperate receipts (we are able to claim certain amount for work) and the girl even started schooling me on how one of us could just pay and the other transfer $’s to the other… really? On the contrary Repeat Offender were more than happy to assist and did so easily and quite literally in 5-10 secs per receipt. Wasn’t a trouble at all. I understand some restaurants don’t accommodate these requests but when it was so easy at their sister restaurant we were a bit surprised at the attitude from Rufio. I think if we had gone to Rufio before Repeat Offender we wouldn’t have had great expectations but RO were amazing on every level from greeting to leaving and on virtually everything that impressed us there was the opposite at Rufio
