Description: Full of unbridled Spanish spirit, this Melbourne restaurant serves a delicious variety of traditional tapas to the sights and sounds of fiery flamenco dancers. Regular performances by the Melburnian Arte Kanela dance troupe guarantee the spice isn't reserved for the cooking. The signature dish here is the much-loved classic paella: rice and seafood cooked slowly in a large, cast-iron pan. It's simple cooking at its best and the generous servings mean it's best shared between friends. Diners can choose to sit in the modest outdoor area or inside, where the dim red lighting casts a warm glow over the rustic wooden furnishings.

We enjoyed a delicious meal of tapas and paella in the charming Kanela Restaurant for our anniversary. Centrally located in a quiet side street of the trendy suburb of Fitzroy.
Lovely friendly staff and divine food make this a must dinning experience for those seeking an authentic experience.

Great night out for a group. Service friendly and attentive. Food reasonable but I've spent a bit of time in Spain so i'm picky. Flamenco show was the highlight - absolutely amazing and authentic. Would go again !

Go for the dinner and the flamenco show and you will not be disappointed! We ordered dinner a la carte and the croquettes, Spanish tortilla, paella and sangria were delicious. The paella for 2 ppl is huge and filled with seafood and meat. The flamenco show was amazing and it felt like we were back in Spain. Highly recommended we can't wait to go back.
