Great food. Excellent menu choices and prices were fair. They had a 3 plate special. Food was very nice with my friend commenting she would return and bring all her kids next time.

My partner and myself came here for dinner for our anniversary. We were not disappointed. The service was great and the food was very tasty. Will definitely come back.

It has changed dramatically since it opened. Food was not the same, we left most of it which is saying something as we normally eat everything however we enjoy tasty good quality food. We got shoved in the back with a table way to high for the seats. Too scared to go back as it was not a pleasant experience.

Tried the Black Bull for a pre-Christmas dinner. Tapas menu was very good, with a wide variety of tasty selections. Good drinks list with a range of local and imported beers and wines. Recommend for something a little different for the standard restaurant fare.

We decided to hit us the tapas list and found that they were over priced for the quality. Quantity could not be faulted. There is not a lot of authentic Spanish in this menu. Gezellig atmosphere and a good mostly Australian wine list with some Spanish Rioja thrown in.

I ate here with my sister and step mother, and had a pleasant dining experience. We had a booth at the back which was a little squishy for three people but otherwise was good. The food came quickly and was very nicely presented and tasted good as well. I would recommend this restaurant to locals and vistors alike.

My husband and I come to Geelong every year on holiday from England and we just love going to this restaurant. We booked a booth at the back which is a lovely seating area, it wasn't quite ready when we arrived so we sat outside as it was a lovely night and drinks were brought to us. We only had... More

we booked a table of 14 on Saturday night and it was fantastic. The wait staff were so good, attentive and patient with such a big group it was hard to organise. We had the set menu with a starter of chefs selection tapas, they were to die for. For mains the pork scotch melted in your mouth, the paella... More

We went here for dinner after the restaurant we had booked said they could not take us. It was a Tuesday night and when we arrived at 6.15pm there were only a few people in the restaurant. Within the next 30 minutes 50 diners arrived and the two waiting/bar staff were swamped but with a few hicups handled it well.... More
