My husband and I had lunch here on the day we arrived in Melbourne. The service was friendly and the paella and tapas very good, although, the paella was small compared to what we have had in Spain and NY. It was enough however with an order or two of tapas. The restaurant has a rooftop area but we sat inside as it was a bit chilly outside. The atmosphere inside was relaxed, and we stayed a while after eating to enjoy some wine. We found it to be good value for the money.

Bomba a great Spanish Tapas restaurant the tapas dishes were delicious and our mocktails were tasty. The only criticism I would give is I ordered a rump dish. I should have asked for it to be cooked a little more as it came out rare, nevertheless I still managed to eat most of it because the flavours were to delicious to pass. The ambience of the place was relaxing and smooth with easy jazz music in the background definitely my kind of scene. The bill was a bit expensive but I guess that's because we just kept ordering more delicious food. Definitely a #doodylovin moment. All in all a pleasant evening.

Stopped in for some Spanish inspired tapas and was completely blown away.
Funky comfortable setting with a great vibe, awesome service and staff from start to finish.
Now the food......wow, what treat! An amazing variety of slightly off centre food done to absolute perfection.
High quality produce which just kept you wanting more....
Could have stayed all night and enjoyed every bit of this restaurant.
This has to be on your list when in Melbourne!

We popped in for a pre-theatre meal and were impressed with the fresh food and great service we received. We had the chorizo, prawns and pipis to start and then shared a paella. All the food was fresh, particularly the seafood. We sat at the bar in full view of the food prep area and were amazed at the level of cleanliness with which all staff took in preparing the meals. This place is a real gem that we will be returning to.

We enjoyed a very flexible tasting menu. 9 dishes for $49. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Great seafood and interesting flavours. Would recommend this to any visitor to Melbourne. They accommodated the vegetarian in our group very very nicely. A little noisy so make sure you sit next to the person you most want to speak to!
