Great anticipation then disappoinment

Last night I went with a friend to Spanish Tapas. The uninspiring name should have told us that the restaurant lacked imagination. The service was great but the food was plain and a disappointment. We ordered the meat platter: four different meats - chicken, scotch fillet, chorizo and beef on a... read more

I visited the restaurant with my boyfriend and our moms. We got the $55 pp banquet with abundance of Tapas and Paella plus 1 and 1/2 hours of UNLIMITED Sangría. The food was delicious, great atmosphere plus life Flamenco Show and good service.

For Christmas my husband and I were given a Good Food voucher, so we were having a look around at the different restaurants that we could use it for and we decided on Spanish Tapas because the $55 banquet appealed to us. I did make the mistake of checking Trip Advisor for reviews, and was a bit worried when the... More

We tried to enjoy this place couple of times, but every time it was disappointment. For some very small plates of tapas, you end up paying around 40-50 dollars each, and some are really basic dishes usually, the mains are overpriced as well unfortunately. Plus even though they taste good enough, the food swims in oil and doesn't feel healthy,... More

Not the best food but certainly not the worst. Several vegetarian options and plenty of meat choices. Special meal offers earlier in the week make it even better value. Recommended for groups or a quick bite with friends.

A friend and I ate here one night last week. We chose to get the $40pp option that included three tapas, bread, salad and paella. To be honest, the food wasn't great. We got the garlic prawns, calamari, and ham croquettes, all of which weren't that tasty. The paella was generous, but much too salty. I think that is overpriced... More

Reasonable price but foods are a bit salty. Service was a bit slow and we have to raise our hands up to get attention.

I have come here a few times with my partner. We have tried the paella, and many of the tapas. My favourites are the ham croquettes, garlic mushrooms, crumbed eggplant and chorizo. We always ask for extra aioli for everything. This place is great for a group of friends, especially on a Monday night where they have castanet dancers for... More
