Meet the Chef

Born in Zambia, Owen emigrated to Australia in the early 70s. His mother a cookery teacher and father in the military saw Owen working in restaurants at 14 whilst at school, until beginning his apprenticeship and part of the team who opened New Parliament House in 1988. Cooking was second to his love of ice hockey, always saying he'll cook until he works out what he wants to do. Rubicon has now been operating for 20 years, with Owen's three kids now working alongside him in the restaurant.

    Was looking for an established restaurant on a Monday night. Rubicon was one of the few that was serving. The food , service and wine selection were fabulous. I will be back at the Rubicon soon.
