Dinner for 2. Very tasty & interesting food. Watch out regarding price (not on purpose, just poorly whiten in the menu). The GOOD. Jamon - Fantastic. Incredible flavour. Garlic mushrooms - brilliant (they use fresh garlic & that makes it great as opposed to "garlic in a jar" style chefs. Calamari - perfectly cooked & seasoned. Roast potato - a... More

The food is absolutely delicious, especially the Pollo pasta and Sangria that has me making a 2.5 hour commute without hesitation. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the staff are always very welcoming. Has very quickly become my favourite restaurant.

This is the best Spanish restaurant in Sydney!!! We always make sure to book ahead since it is always very busy. Love most of the tapas, their paella is just perfect, the sangria is wonderful and the prices are very reasonable. Service is very quick and the staff are very friendly and accommodating although sometimes there are communication problems but... More

I went to this place after seeing reviews from other people. Ordered the garlic bread and the lamb, scallop and omlette tapas. Misjudged the size of the tapas so it was too much for me to finish - the allowed takeaway so it worked out. Flavours were good. The saffron scallops were amazing - but definitely too rich for one...

No booking, late(ish) arrival - no problem with getting a table even tho the place was pretty full - food excellent, friendly service - only negative was it was very noisy that evening - I think one group was the source.

Super friendly staff from the moment you walk in. The food came fairly fast and the it was absolutely delicious. Having spent some time in Spain recently, this is very close to what you would get over there. They also cater for groups so enjoy a nice evening with family and friends.

I should have known that finding a tapas restaurant in the middle of Sydney's Chinatown/Thai town should give me a reason to be suspicious. But I decided to try it anyway, and while the food was okay, it was underwhelming at best. The chorizo a la plancha was the worst among the dishes that I ordered. The chorizo tasted more... More

Great menu for all tastes - I was with two vegetarian who both eat seafood and we had plenty to choose from. Very busy restaurant but service was friendly and at a good pace.

Bustling as always but the service is impeccable and always full of smile. I have never eaten so much chorizo as i did with Chorizo a la Plancha. It is grilled to perfection and very delicious. We ordered the Albondigas (beef ball in almond sauce) but the special menu of calamari and pork balls is ever more fantastic. If love... More
