Food is always fantastic, when busy service can be a little slow, but nothing that is completely unacceptable

What a great night. We booked for the first sitting at 6.30pm. The customer service was outstanding from the moment we entered. We ordered a set Menu with wine. Loved the food and wine. They were very knowledgeable about the wine. The presentation of the food was outstanding. I'd definitely return.

Came here first time about 5 years ago but hadn't been for a while so decided date night with some Spanish would be a good idea. Fell in love with the place again. Service was great as soon as we arrived. A few champagnes and tapas followed by a Rioja and then more tapas - all fantastic. Try the Jamon,... More

It's no doubt Subsolo is the most classy Spanish Restaurant in Sydney. Fantastic venue Tapas are full of flavours but it's the expected taste. Paella was ok. The unexpected taste was in the Peri Peri Chicken. Great display and very pleasant hot flavour. Highly recommended dish. I give this place 4 bears.

I would recommend asking to be served by Christian. He was warm and attentive to our needs and ensured that we had an enjoyable dinner experience. After a few hiccups with food taking a while to come from the kitchen, Christian saved the night- chasing things up for us and ensuring everything was corrected. Overall a nice experience, but he...

In Sydney for a business trip and a colleague had a recommendation to dine at Subsolo and it did not disappoint. The staff were welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly. The food - oh the food! Calamari, meatballs, pork belly, zucchini flowers just to name a few were all delicious. The wine list has mainly Spanish wines but our waitress was very... More

This is the third time we've dined here over the last 4 years. It seems to be getting better each time (or at least our experience is). We shared 5 tapas dishes between us and the sardines were delicious but my stand out is the succulent pork belly. Recommended
