Wanted somewhere different to go for birthday & was not disappointed. The small sign street level doesn't indicate what is waiting below - a cross between NY and Barcelona urban chic. Lovely bar area and a large expanse for dining. You don't feel like you are on top of others. It was a Tuesday & I'm glad I booked. It... More

Came for dinner and the entrees were excellent - the combined meat platter with the Jamon pâté was outstanding - the croquettes were creamy and delicious. The paella was ok - great crust. A nice bottle of rose topped off an enjoyable night.

A great semi casual place for a family birthday celebration. The food was great and the meat on the metal hangers looked great. Good cocktails and a nice ambience if a tad noisy.

The atmosphere and decor is modern Spanish. We ordered the set menu and thoroughly enjoyed every last morsel.Set Menu #2 (Min 2 Guests) $65 per person we used the entertainment book which gave us a discount of $40 off the total bill. This consisted of Bowan Island Black Olive Sourdough & Roasted Spanish Olives Warm Lamb Shoulder Salad with Fresh... More

I hosted an end of year dinner here for a small group of people. We had a set menu, which included an excellent range (and in good quantities) of dishes. The food was authentic and really flavoursome. One of the party was vegetarian, and the staff provided an excellent range of alternatives within the set menu for her at no... More

Excellent tapas bar in the middle of the city. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating and the tapas dishes we had were excellent. As we had a group of 6 and were having trouble deciding what to order we took the set menu. I wouldn't do that in future as the meat for the mains was quite tough. We... More

Went there last night before attending a concert at the nearby State Theatre. What a delightful discovery! Ordered a number of tapas dishes to share with my lovely wife, seated at the bar, and was immediately impressed by the waiter asking if we were in a hurry and then suggesting that he staggered the delivery of our dishes. The food... More
