Would Definitely consider walking the whole strip before coming here

unfortunately not the evening we had planned on having down at la cita. un-knowlegable staff that didn't know what "corkage" was... cocktails made with more ice then Alcohol or Juice... Aged and ruined menus that made for difficult reading... plus slow service although there was only 6 people... read more

We were delighted to come across this quite little place in King Street Wharf area away from the crowds. The menu is very basic with a Mexican influence.

Good lunch time menu at economical price. Various selections including vegetarian and meat lovers between $10 and $12. Service is not bad either.

We should have realized we were in trouble when after ordering Sangria the waitress asked if we would like something to drink! The Sangria when it at last arrived was more lemonade than wine but it tasted OK which was more than can be said about our food. As this was supposed to be a Spanish/ Mexican resaurant my husband...

We had a lovely time at La Cita. Great food, seafood tasted fresh and fajitas were wonderful. Waiting time minimal. Used a Groupon voucher but we left a tip as well because the food was so good! Paella was so yummy and big servings too. Would recommend this place. Shocked to see negative reviews, maybe they have changed hands??? Anyway... More

We had lunch a few days ago with two friends at this King Street Wharf restaurant. Each couple had a seafood platter for two at a cost of $125 per platter. As we had purchased on line discount vouchers, the cost was $76 for each platter. The seafood platter includes a bottle of wine which is pretty good value. There... More

We had a fantastic lunch meal here with a great view. It was the best meal we had the four days we were there. Only $10 for a massive serving of chicken breast with mushroom sauce and with entre! We were very impressed and the service was fantastic.

I used to dine and dance here regularly when I lived in Sydney and thoroughly enjoyed a recent visit for dinner with my family. The atmosphere is great, sitting outdoors down on the harbour and our waitress was adorable. I really like the food there and loved the white wine sangria. They also had kids meals which was convenient as... More
