A Complete and Unforgettable Dining Experience


With stunning ocean views, superb Mediterranean cuisine and inspiring décor - Rustica Newcastle Beach is the ideal dining experience - lunch or evening.Meaning 'rural' in Italian, Rustica was inspired by the social style of Mediterranean dining and the spice of North African cuisine.

Established in 2011, by Will Creedon and celebrated chef Mark Hosie, Rustica Newcastle Beach provides diners with a unique 16th and 17th century Mediterranean themed dining experience with a menu that includes tapas style dishes to mains. The food is fresh and whenever possible is prepared using locally sourced produce such as Port Stephens oysters, Upper Hunter lamb, and Hunter Valley verjuice. Try the six or eight course banquet – it’s often the answer to any menu decision woes!

The generous wine list compliments the menu, with a selection of top Hunter Valley wines as well as some regional and international varieties from some lesser known producers to suit all palates. They also have lovely liqueurs, whiskeys and a comprehensive selection of spirits and cocktails.
