Breakfast

Service was not that friendly, but quick and on time. The food was tasty but a bit expensive for a breakfast. When I wanted to pay by card I was told there is a $2 surcharge which I thought a bit uncalled for. By all means ask for a surcharge if the total is below $20 but paying with an... read more

Cute, intimate, friendly staff, and beautiful food. Try the mushroom tapas, the salt and pepper squid, the chicken with mint dressing. Yes went on a groupon to try something different and very glad we did. Will return as full paying customer and try other things from their extensive menu.

This is an ok restaurant. Ambience was quite nice, service was good as initially we were the only ones there, as soon as somebody else came in, that was it. Food is clearly pre made and just reheated, which shows in the quality.

As we continue to explore the restaurants of Sydney via the special deals offered by www.groupon.com.au and www.mydeal.com.au, the Patagonian Toothfish Reatauarnt/Cafe was our next port-of-call. This restaurant in the heart of Redfern, which is fully licensed, offers South American style tapas menus ... for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We went for dinner, and elected to sit outside, al fresco.... More

This place looked good for a winter's evening outing and we wanted tapas. But it missed the spot - starter of prosciuto, fig and haloumi was fried unwisely leaving the fig a gooey mess within a greasy wrap of proscuito. Then the croquettes were fine but a bit over fried. Yummy mushrooms that needed some fresh bread to really make... More

Went there for a group Christmas dinner and ordered the $55 banquet. Food was delicious and totally good value as the servings were large. Service was great and the staff were very accommodating. Totally recommend this place!

After reading so many negative reviews, it was with hesitation that I made a booking to use the "Voucher" deal I had purchased. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and told we could sit wherever we liked. The waiter explained the menu to us and what were able to have. The food was fresh, quick to arrive and tasty. We...

Why do restaurants do vouchers when they serve crap food. There is nothing good about this place. Hair in my food. Will never go back,

I'm afraid they shouldn't call this a tapas place. Not really spanish, not really South American. their tapas are overpriced (10 dollars for a small bowl of chorizo) and not particularly appetising. The salad was average. They really have to revisit their concept and come back to earth.
