Rubira’s @ swallows continues the tradition that restauranteur John Rubira has created over three decades in the hospitality business. Friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable staff will pamper you as John’s motto is “the best restaurant is the restaurant that knows you best”.

The best fish are brought in whole and filleted on site each morning. John Dory from Eden , Red Emperor from Shark Bay, or Trumpeter Whiting from San Remo might be among the 8 to 10 available on the market fresh fish board. Magnificent oysters from numerous locations are also always available as well as huge Tiger Prawns, mouth watering local bay calamari, scallops, mussels etc etc. Also available is Hopkins River beef and double roasted Peking Duck if that’s your preference.

A fully equipped upstairs private room can be booked for any type of function, with menus tailored to your needs.

Rubira’s wine list needs to be seen to be believed offering a huge selection of quality wines to ensure the food is complemented perfectly.
