I need to preface this by saying we had our wedding reception here 5 years ago as it was our favorite restaurant. With kids and everything we sadly hadn't been back since. It was our 5 year anniversary last night and we returned. So happy to say it is still thriving! Service amazing, atmosphere perfect and food is to die... More

There are a lot of similar restaurants in Sydney but none in my opinion which manage to execute the delicate balance of great atmosphere and excellent food quite so well. The service was good at times (it was full on a Tuesday!) with knowledgeable staff. The food was wonderful and not over seasoned as can be the case with Tapas.... More

The food served were tapas of sardines, prawns and stuffed peppers. They were just delicious and adequate for my wife and I. The deserts were delicious as well. The staff were delightful and told us what to eat with our up coming trip to Mexico. We would have gone back again the next night but they are closed on Sunday.... More

I went here with a group of friends, i was upset as it was $50 a head and the food was tasteless. We had a long weight between courses but we had plenty to eat - except for the skewers between 6 people we got 3 skewers so only had 1 peice of each...the chicken was beautiful and the highlight...

We recently had a small group of friends gather at Subsolo for a birthday function and everything flowed smoothly. The staff were friendly and attentive and the canapé style of food was plentiful and very tasty. I particularly enjoyed the subsangria cocktail and although all the food was great, the bite sized dessert churros were a hit with everyone. Would... More

We have visited a number of times and are never disappointed. Always greeted with a smile at the door which is somewhat rare these days. The food here is good - traditional flavours which are sure to hit the spot. Wine list is extensive, and reasonably priced. Staff are efficient and, as mentioned, are genuinely lovely. Will continue to return.

We pop-up there without reservation on fri night and as we expected, full house of course, we had a few drinks and the bar and table was ready for us. We order a lot of tapas like garlic prawn, tortilla cheese and many dishes which were good. The best thing about this restaurant is atmosphere and service. You can come... More

Finding somewhere decent to eat in central Sydney on a midweek night can be a problem. Unless you're at Darling Harbour or Chinatown, or venture out to Surry Hills and such, pickings can be scarce in the CBD. But Subsolo, a basement Tapas bar in the eastern part of the CBD, was a really pleasant surprise. It's an unobtrusive entrance... More

Good atmosphere, good food, good service - overall a very positive dining experience. The service was quick and friendly, enjoyed the experience but I think the list of wines could be expanded a bit further. Churros for dessert I think are compulsory!
