Absolutely disgusted with the meal received last night... After thoroughly enjoying eating there for many years, I am sad to say I will never be going back. The only thing Spanish about the restaurant was the wait staff. We were disappointed on arrival to find out that there was no suckling pig, the garlic bread served was stale and not... More

I have eaten here several times some years ago and really enjoyed it. I was looking forward to revisiting and especially to the paella. The friendly service has been replaced with lackadaisical sauntering. And the food was very poor, the paella inedible. $102 for a cup of tea, one coffee, two entrees bread and paella. A total waste. I left... More

We went here after the watching a movie last week and my experience was awful. The waiter decided to order for us and bought out a plate of ham and cheese. I thought this was free but actually was itemised as $21 on the resulting bill. Anything we attempted to subsequently order was unavailable and my girlfiend thought she was... More

Our group of five was looking for a Spanish restaurant on a busy Friday night which served vegetarian for my partner. We looked at another Spanish restaurant but no vegetarian meals on the menu so decided to try this restaurant. Two of us had the special fish of the day which we enjoyed, my partner the vegetarian paella, another the... More

I visited this restaurant quite a few years ago and really enjoyed it. We were back today and I was very disappointed. Having been in Spain for 7 weeks 4 months ago may have spoiled me a bit, but rolls cut in half with soggy oil and garlic slighty overgrilled did not cut it for me. The Spanish Garlic prawns... More

I have to agree with other reviewers, this is very average Spanish food and I would not recommend it. The seafood combo dish for two was ok but the Potatas Bravas was a poor imitation, as was the garlic bread. The highlight was the sangria which was excellent.

Anyone who rates this restaurant higher than terrible truly doesn't go out much. The food is bland & the service is awful,, they do not try to please you. The matrade / owner was rude & unpleasant. We were there for lunch in a large group, they took our booking for 2.45pm (late lunch) and then almost denied us dessert... More

My partner's father (who is Spanish) wanted to dine out in the Spanish Quarter (completely misnamed now, considering the Spanish Club is now a Chinese restaurant, and there most of the other places have closed down), and we ended up here. It was absolutely dreadful. We were served by no less than four different waitpersons throughout the night, and none... More
