Have dined here often over the years. Jose is as much an icon as the restaurant itself. Food was great as always

Good simple tapas well prepared in a nice atmosphere. Lots of brick and wood. Very nice sangria. I don't doubt that much of the garlic industry in Australia supplies this restaurant and it is mighty tasty as a result.

This would be the worst Spanish food I've ever eaten, I am a true lover of paella and I can't believe that they call a tasteless over priced with grey colored chicken legs traditional paella. It's a dish I've eaten all over the world and I'm extremely disappointed.

We have eaten at Capitan Torres a number of times over the years, as part of a larger group, as a family and as a couple, the service is always great, the staff know their stuff and if they make a recommendation, its because its good, not because they're told to sell it. We ordered a Lechon for my work... More

This would have to the worst Spanish restaurant I have been to. The only saving grace was the lovely waitress, Patricia, We waited well over an hour to receive any food. The paella tasted dry and the white bait entree was cold and like a cat treat you buy at Coles. We also ordered meatballs but they would have been... More

We have been visiting this Spanish restaurant for quite a few years and always look forward to the tasty tapas, rustic atmosphere and friendly staff. However, our most recent visit (June 2014) was disappointing. The food was okay, although not up to the standard of our past experiences. Although the waitresses were excellent, the Chinese manager was so openly rude... More

We arrived for an early dinner, the waitresses were a bit disorganised to start with but became more attentive and obliging as the restaurant filled and were helpful with menu suggestions.The sangria came from the bar to us via the meals order desk while the waitress entered somebody else's order. Not hygenic practice as it should have been delivered directly... More

We were in Sydney for the weekend and to watch the Vivid lights, and after hours at Circular Quay and Martin Place we eventually made our way to Liverpool St and the Spanish quarter, arriving around 10.30pm. The staff were obviously used to late arrivals, particularly when Vivid is on, and were happy to oblige with very quick service and... More
