I visited lake macquarie this weekend to see family and they brought me here Saturday night. Wow, I've been to Spain but the food here was better than anything I had there. The service was good, especially as they were very very busy. We had a banquet so got to try a bit of most of the menu and it... More

Travelled from the Central Coast to meet a friend at Bacardos Warners Bay to celebrate my 50th Birthday. Had been looking forward to it after hearing good things about the food. My friend had booked in person for the Saturday night. Arrived to be told there was no booking and that lots of people had booked Newcastle by mistake. Person... More

Had dinner Tuesday here, the food was quite simply fantastic, wonderfully prepared and of outstanding quality, with service to match. The Scallops and pork belly are the must have along with the sangria. Highly recommend as a great place to eat. Will be back

Have now visited this restaurant on several occasions and can say that the food (and sangria) is always great. I was a little dubious about having a banquet but am happy to say that there was plenty of food for all. You definitely don't leave this restaurant feeling hungry. As one of the other reviewers said, go easy on the... More

We booked a table at 6pm for dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. On arrival we were promptly seated at a great table given menus and ordered drinks. We decided to have the main banquet. Our extremely good waitress warned us to "go easy on the bread" as there would be heaps of food. The food tasted fantastic and each... More

Very disappointing night at Bocados. Our table didn't have knives and forks for half the guests and we had to ask for them after our mains arrived. One of our tapas dishes (which were our entrees) arrived with our mains after we asked where it was. Two mains arrived and then the others arrived about 5 minutes later. We couldn't... More

The menu has a choice of tapas and larger main course dishes with plenty of variety. What really helps is that the friendly staff have a good knowledge of the menu and are happy to tell you more about each dish and assist when placing your order. There is a good wine list and although its not cheap and is... More

Dinner for 4 for my 47th birthday on a Saturday. Took the 8.15pm sitting (the other is too early for us). Table was ready and on time, service a tad slow (had to remind staff a couple of times) but overall, an absolutely lovely dinner. Is busy but that's obviously word has got around. The manager is very polite, very... More
