a perfect meal in a perfect setting

With a view of the Tatler winery as a backdrop, the setting could not be more serene. Friendly staff have a smile on their dial, and make you feel at home. Not rushed at all, and all meals {which are fantastic by the way), are brought to you in a time efficient and ordered manner. Fantastic food... read more

We had lunch with friends this week - 5 adults and 3 kids. The staff were very attentive and accommodating with the kids and the tapas were the best I've had! Also excellent value for money. We went to another restaurant for lunch today in the HV that served tapas and they simply did not compete. Tatler is definitely worth... More

Better than Barcelona - must visit restaurant with the best food, wine and the friendliest service. You should also taste the wines at the bar and be entertained by the manager.

Tatler Tapas Cafe is a wonderful eating house . This cafe has been consistently fantastic for many years. The food is delicious and the service is excellent...not to mention the good wines. The chef delivers the freshest food with great taste always. Its a favourite spot.

We were a party of six including two young children, visiting for the third time. There is always a good menu choice and the chilli garlic prawns were a real success. The serving of sourdough bread (with nice warm olives) could be a bit more generous and the chorizo sausage rolls perhaps need a little more improvement. However the "best... More

Every time I visit family in Australia from the UK I make a point of going for lunch here. The food has always been exceptionaln, and previously the service has been great too. Sadly yesterday that wasn't the case. The staff were polite but the food came in dribs and drabs (indicative of a Tapas restaurant I guess) but one... More

The food took over an hour to come to the table , when we questioned the service they were really rude about it. When we were paying we brought it to their attention and very insulted by a comment made by the head chef advising we might be more comfortable with a pub meal. Very rude , insulting and condescending,... More
