The food was just awful. We selected 4 Tapas dishes - chorizo, calamari, sardines and prawns with garlic and chilli. The garlic bread and red wine were the tastiest part of the whole meal. Chorizo was just that - sliced and fried chorizo sausage. Deep fried calamari was like rubber. Sardines were just sardines fried in a pan and smelled... More

We had a great meal at Capitan Torres. Great service, server was able to explain all the different menu items, and the tapas style food and Spanish wine were delicious! Would recommend for a change of pace meal!

When I worked in the city some years ago this place was a true delight. The food was very good and the service was so professional. However, when we went with friends for tapas recently it was a huge disappointment. It was almost like the staff hadn't had much experience preparing or serving Spanish food. The sardines were - well,... More

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
