4.3 is spot on. A cracking little place. The small dishes here are beauties. I had a few with my friend during our catch up today. We were talking so intently my note taking failed me a bit. The anchovy starter was a killer. Beautifully...More

We have visited this tapas bar on a number of occasions and usually have to wait 10/15 minutes to get a seat which is usually fine as the food is worth waiting for and you can get a drink of wine whilst you wait for...More

Fabulous little tapas restaurant in one of the special laneways that make Melbourne unique. The food is really good and the service excellent, a wonderful Friday afternoon. Very difficult to get a table. Best to go outside normal eating hours.

It is tight and cosy inside. We asked for the music to be turned down as the bass was thumping and they kindly turned it down to a good level. The service is very good. The young female waitresses work hard, however the serve side...More

We popped into this restaurant twice whilst in Melbourne, superb service and lip smacking delicious tapas. You could easily pop in for half an hour or for three hours with a date, family or friends. Highly recommended.

While the service was good I was somewhat disappointed. I found the menu uninteresting, although the sardines with tomato sorbet were yum. Very expensive for what I thought was quite ordinary. Not sure how it can be classed as a Mexican restuarant. The extensive drink...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
