Our philosophy is based on simplicity. Simple, yet delectable. Fresh produce, dishes packed with flavour. International cuisine with a local twist.
Whether you’re enjoying a cheeseburger with an ice cold beer and your toes in the sand; or savouring a perfectly grilled snapper with a crisp glass of white wine, we make sure it is delivered to Rascal perfection.
