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.

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

We ate at 7pm and by then they had run out of two types of beers and the pâté. The food is really good and... More

A group of 8 of us needed somewhere quick and close to the Theatre Royal in King St Sydney, so we just showed up at Subsolo at 5.30pm , expecting there to be heaps of spare seats. Wow.. the place was fully booked and we were lucky enough to get a bench where we could have some pre theatre tapas... More
