A great spot for drinks with friends

I've been here with friends, for New Year's Eve, attended events and even hosted a birthday here. It is a really fantastic spot that copes with large crowds. On any weekend, it is a really great starting point for nibbles and drinks - especially if you can nab one of the booths at the back!

We had a group of 10 have the tapas at this charming restaurant. We ended up sharing everything and having a great time. The food was a good mixture of tastes and textures and our waitress Amber was so lovely. She made sure that everything went smoothly for us and really made our night special. Great place for groups.

Visited this place with a couple of friends for a few drinks and food. As expected the place was buzzing on a Friday night. We had some sushi which was decent. Have had better sushi in Melbourne. Then we hit the bar for a few round of drinks. The place has a great ambience, good young crowd. All in all... More

We had our end of year function in a secluded section of the venue, which included our own staffed bar and tables and chairs. The drinks were great, some cocktails were on special and the food platters were actually quite delicious. All was good value and we had a great time. By the time we left (about 11) the place...

This place has it all! Firstly there is the $34.50 per person all you can eat Tapas, amazing food, and service, and not a single problem when we ordered enough food for a small tribe between the two of us! Then the Decor, so warm and inviting! Velvet boothes and mood lighting and a giant Moose head, what could be... More

I came here with a group of friends and never will again. Was taken advatange of. Ordered 1 drink, and the bartender made me two assuming one was for my friend next to me, even though he already had a drink. I said no, only 1 and the bartender made me another one. I was absolutely dumbfounded, when I told... More

I go here quite often with friends for happy hour and tapas. The tapas is actually quite cheap for the city, however it's always the cocktails I come back for. The passion fruit and espresso martini are to die for and I always keep buying them after happy hour is finished. After the dinner crowd finish they pack the tables... More

I remember eating here years ago and was really impressed with the tapas but now I think it is a very poor imitation. Admittedly I was there on the mid-week all you can eat menu for $35. You can order two dishes per person at a time but honestly I'd be hard pressed to find one I enjoyed. Four of... More

The sushi was excellent. We had the venue as a private party. The DJ and atmosphere was great and made for a fun night. Recommended.
