This place is fun the music is pumping and good atmosphere. However it's way too pricey! Some "to share" plates are $30 and are the size of a starter! When will you Sydney hipsters learn the value of money!

Prompt, pleasant service without being too attentive. Very good food, but the wine was expensive. We were given a table as soon as we arrived as they hold some for walk ins.

Spanish themed tapas restaurant The food isn't Spanish but more of an alternative theme However, all the food was delicious Hot cross buns, salad, beef cheeks and the banana split dessert..... definitely worth the visit. Service great and water was continously being refilled

Good tapas style food. Menu wise it was a bit limited compared to a full on tapas bar but quality was good. Pea and ricotta zucchini flowers with malt vinegar was tasty. Beef cheek with oloroso sauce was really tender and well cooked to perfection....More
