Walking down a random little laneway and you stumble upon a total gem of a restaurant that you would never have known was there had you not been having a massage across the way. I popped in for a glass of wine and ended up having some nibbles. Friendly service and excellent food. I can't wait to go back for... More

A group of 7 of us dined here on a Tuesday night-it was fully booked which is always a good sign. For a group our size, we ordered the chefs selection of 7 courses. There were 3 pescatarians in the group, so none of the selections had meat, but we were all impressed with the choices that were brought out.... More

We loved this restaurant and found our tapa's which we ordered to be really yummy, fresh and looked great. We were a group of 4 who ordered the duck salad, mussels, pork belly, marinated olives and bread. We were thoroughly satisfied with our meal and washed it down with their Sangria which tasted great. It's location is great as afterwards... More

This fabulous little oasis in Warburton Lane, Melbourne provides diners with an authentic taste of Spain. As soon as my wife and I walked through the doors we felt immediately welcome and an inviting atmosphere is clearly evident. We ate our way through several tapas dishes, probably too many, but thoroughly enjoyed each one. The white Spanish anchovies, garlic prawns... More

As Tapas Bars go, I guess this is a good one - judging by its popularity. The style of eating is not my preference; I would rather not eat from sharing plates - but the food itself is good. Marinated olives, crispy-skinned pork belly, veal/pork meatballs, prawns, green salad, breads - all very fresh with great flavours. I was with... More

A great Spanish restaurant tucked away in Warburton Lane in Melbourne. We chose a range of tapas to share including prawns, octopus, pork belly and croquettes. We went for the larger duck salad and patatas bravas for mains. Excellent presentation and flavours. A range of morsels to select, it was so hard to choose. We accompanied it with Sangria. The...

Interesting little place with a nice buzz and young helpful and cheerful staff. While the food we had was very good the menu is a little misleading. Serving sizes vary dramatically so although some dishes are on the list recommended for individual serves they actually have four pieces. Others are so small ( the peppers-delicious but minuscule ) you need... More
