My colleagues took me here for my birthday and it was really amazing. The lunch banquet was great, the food was so incredibly tasty, and the atmosphere was really lovely. I want to go back. It is definitely a special occasion place as fas as I am concerned, but the lunch deal makes it that little bit more accessible.

I had a lovely early sitting on a Saturday with a friend. We shared a litre of sangria, tapas and desserts. I recommend the terrine and the churros. The red Sangria was very good, not too heavy or spicy. The service was friendly too. Definitely going back.

We had been wanting to go to the restaurant for a while. Afterwards felt quite disappointed. The portions for the price/quality was crazily high. Pork belly was really really salty, the paella had what seemed to be just chunks of leftover meat in it, the mussels were pretty flavourless and more on the cold side. Service was nothing great with... More

Located down a lane in the heart of Melbourne CBD this Spannish Tappas restaurant with good food. Not the most comfortable seating and would be a little cramp on a busy night, but generally enjoyed the experience. Service was good and the wine and beer is purely Spannish and quite nice.

The food here was all very tasty, but we have spent a lot of time in Spain, and the tapas were not authentic Spanish. The preparation of the standard dishes were all different than what they serve in Spain. That being said, it was all good, and we had excellent service from a lovely girl from Barcelona who had only... More

Tucked away in one off Melbourne ubiquitous laneways is Portello Rosso. One of those restaurants you have to be in the "Know" to find. Our waitress from Barcelon was lovely and explained the menu to us and made recommendations on food and wine. The Paella was the hit of the night. The Plato de Jamón was a disappointment, not in...

Went to Portello Rosso a Spanish Jamon Restaurant in Warburton Lane a number of years ago. Friends and I had been trying to make a reservation for a return visit but we were always on a far too short lead time. My daughter visited me from Perth for Christmas and I happen to mention that this was a great Restaurant... More
