Great place for a drink & a snack

I have been here with friends on five occasions over a couple of years and keep coming back because of the sophisticated but relaxed vibe & the fabulous wine list. The food - I fear - may have slipped a little in recent times. On my last visit the "roasted morcilla, lentils & pancetta" was... read more

I had read some great reviews of this place, so was greatly disappointed by my experience. The wine was overpriced for its quality, the food was tasteless and without any inspiration, and the servings were pathetically small. The staff were thoroughly unpleasant, and seemed to delight in providing poor service with a rude attitude.

Exellent spanning restaurant with great food and nice wine. The atmosphere is great, is is quite small but like in Spain they know hoe to use the small space to their advantage. Staff is very helpfull and we will be coming back when we are visiting Melbourne again.

This little gem is beside the Sheraton in little Collins St, and is a busy after work bar then a great destination for sharing plates and worldy wines, with staff that really know their profession. We only had wine by the glass but you could enjoy a bottle just as much, but we wanted to match the dishes and we... More

Had dinner and drinks here last weekend. Summary is: - very cool vibe - drink menu was very good - service was great, nice hosts - food was quite nice though don't go there too hungry. Serves were pretty pricey for what was turned out. Overall, better than average and would return for drinks.

I have travelled by myself quite a bit but waking into a bar alone seeking a quite corner for a drink after work in a city I don't know well always stresses me. I needn't have worried. The girl on the door spirited me to a quite corner in an otherwise pumping bar. I was quickly fixed up with a... More

This was the third restaurant I visited for the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival express lunches and whilst I enjoyed all three, this was the stand out. To start we had croquettes, then entrée was a choice of kingfish or cauliflower - we chose the cauliflower and for someone who isn't a huge fan, the spices and flavours were incredible.... More

We arrived at this restaurant with a small group and were seated quite quickly. The staff were very friendly and the vibe of the place was vibrant and energetic. We had a glass of wine from a good list and ordered a selection of tapas dishes from the menu. We started with oysters, which were good and then moved to... More
