Nice little Tapas eatery

Quick stop-over on a Thursday night home for a quick bite to eat. Great selection of tapas with a great deal if you buy 3. We had the chorizo, calamari and pork belly. They were fantastic, generous serves and extremely tasty. Quick service but unfortunately cash only - quick trip to the closest ATM... read more

Great little cafe restaurant with option for Tapas or standard dining. The interior seating is old drop seat chairs, with torn covers, but this adds to the charm of this place. The food was really good but I think they are missing out on a lot of business by not having an Eftpos machine. Could not use the company credit... More

We had six dishes with a deal 3 courses for $34. The food was nice except some (bitter) grass is mixed with rocket salad (not washing or they trying to prove that their goat is grass fed). We understand that the food's price is for its location on Degraves Street but still difficult to digest. The trio of dips with... More

I ate here with a friend when we were looking for something lighter than a large meal in the evening. This place offers a variety of spanish and Mediterranean "small plates". We easily made a meal by ordering several tapas. Service was fast and friendly and the place has a rustic charm. A great place to stop for a light... More

This is a very small but friendly bar in Degraves Street. It is a great place any time for a glass of wine and authentic tapas. Look for the rickety cinema seating There are cocktails , wine and beer by the glass As well as tapas there are larger meals. Only cash is accepted. Indoor and outdoor seating available Free...

The food was great sat out side in the street was very nice and relaxing. Food was cooked well and tasted amazing. And the coffee was good as well. But the down side was our waitress she was rude and gave the impression she didn't want to be there or take our orders and when she did take them didn't... More

We came here for lunch yesterday during a Saturday shopping day in the city. We were shown to a table by a waitress who didn't seem very interested in being friendly. There were no menus and she didn't know what our options were so she made us get up and have a look around the walls and outside at the... More

There was ok food here. Slow to take our order. Good size servings but not as good as over the road at cafe andiamo. My son didn't finish his Spanish eggs which is unheard of.

Being a caffeine lover from way way back this place is my favorite place to drink coffee whilst holidaying in Melbourne. Service is fast, coffee is hot, single origin and supreme. The young Ricky Martin waiter does not make the viewing scene too hard on the eye either (thank you!). I will be back.
