I went to Subsolo again on Saturday night and have to say it is now no longer on my list of favourite restaurants, in fact I actively dislike eating there. The service is ok, the ambience is good, but the food...well what did arrive wasn't impressive. To start with when we ordered we were told that they had run out... More

Having dined here for both lunch and dinner on a few occasions over the last six months, we've found the service to be good (attentive and friendly) as well as the food. In terms of the food, a there's a good selection of meat, seafood and vegetarian dishes available. As well as having a good selection of tapas dishes, there... More

Our concierge at our hotel recommended Subsolo. A quick walk (10 mins) from the Westin Sydney was just what we needed after a long flight and day of sightseeing. Located on King St., you walk downstairs to the dark but inviting restaurant. Very lively, and bustling, the food here is tapas (plate sharing). We had a fantastic server originally from... More

The food was absolutely amazing - the sangria was the best we've ever had (and we've been to spain!). The service was great and the meals were just divine. Perfect size portions and the cost was justified by the quality of the food. Loved it.

Arrived early and within 30 minutes the place was packed. My host knew the manager and we had excellent attentive service. All the food was excellent, especially the manchego balls, cured ham and the meat on a skewer. Fine wines. By the time we left there was not a seat and it was quite loud. Reservations definitely recommended.

Arrived without a booking early on a Saturday night recently. We didn't have a problem in getting a table for two. The restaurant whilst reasonably sized, felt quite cosy which may be due to the dim lighting, warmth and beautiful smells wafting from the kitchen. The staff were very welcoming and we didn't have to wait long before our first... More

It was my last night in Sydney and I wanted to spoil myself so I decided to go out for a slap-up meal. I stumbled across Subsolo in the heart of the city, didn't expect it to be busy at 7pm on a Tuesday night but the place was 80% full! I couldn't decide what to have as there was... More

Booked a table for 12 at 8:15pm, waited 30 mins. Food was given to the wrong table. Offers Sangria in glass only, not in jug. Good ambiance, waiters tried their best, but managing level is disappointing. You can consider to have a drink here, but don't expect quality meal during peak hour.

On a recent visit to Sydney, our friends took us to Subsolo for dinner. The food was good, the Spanish wines excellent, ambience was cosy and comfortable. It was a busy night but that didn't affect the service in any way. Drinks were topped up without us having to ask, and the noise levels were at a minimum. We would... More
