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...

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.

This was a lovely experience as we were initially apprehensive after booking. The receiver of our call seemed distant and non interested in validating our coupon however upon arrival (assuming it was the same person) greeted us warmly. We ordered the "Patagonia Breakfast" which was beautifully presented and tasted great. The poached eggs, bacon, mushrooms and spinach were perfectly cooked... More

We had the 65.00 set menu and left disappointed. Variety is terrible and the food isn't fresh made. Food oily and overcooked. Would not recommend.
