The food was amazing we had a 7 course tapas menu to share, couldn't fault any of the course. The restuarant itself has a really nice ambience and even when busy it was quiet enough to have a relaxed conversation. The wait staff were very attentive and of course the Sangria was delicious.

If you enjoy tapas this place has some of the best. Get the tasting menu which was weak worth the price, Red sangria was very nice.

Came recommended by a local and we were not disappointed. Shared tapas were spot on though I must admit I am not that familiar with Spanish dishes. We did enjoy the meal, the staff, the service and the location.

Our party of 8 shared a mixture of tapas followed by a main each. Good variety of meat, seafood and vegetarian options. My main of snapper with eggplant and tomato ratatouille was good. Central location under the GPO in Martin place. Venue easily accommodates larger groups.

We went here because of the TripAdvisor reviews and oh boy ! We weren't let down. Loved the food !! Ordered 4 tapas and shared between two. It was amazing. Ordered the pan fried scallops, Gambas al ajillo, slow cooked beef cheeks and grilled beef meatballs. Worth every dollar. The lady attending was very courteous and helpful. Great seating space...

What else can I say but the food, wine and service were excellent. Surprising to find such good quality food and service in Sydney. Everything tasted fresh and full of flavour and the service was always present but unobtrusive.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
