Description: “Every now and then a restaurant meal can unexpectedly become a memorable...
“Every now and then a restaurant meal can unexpectedly become a memorable dining experience for all the right reasons………sleek and cosy, stylish and inviting, the manner and knowledge of staff exemplary, with well chosen and superbly cooked side dishes and meat cooked to perfection” (Savour Australia judges review 2009)So where is the tapas you ask? Well we’re not really Spanish at all; the name has simply been retained for historical authenticity. The original Spanish Grill was a prominent feature of the old Grand Hotel and was a keen local patronage that closed in 1989. The new Spanish Bar & Grill has been created to remember the past and to evoke nostalgia for former patrons. We are delighted to carry on this Mildura tradition.Since 2006 The new Spanish Bar & Grill has been transformed into a must do dining experience for locals and visitors alike. After two state awards for Best Steak Restaurant this sophisticated yet reassuringly relaxed dining venue was in 2009 awarded the Savour Australia Award for Excellence as the Best Steak Restaurant in Australia. And yes we are extremely proud of this achievement.The centrepiece of the space is the unique red gum grill, with the sights, scents and sounds of the grill adding to the guest experience. The grill is not just a slice of entertainment, it is central to the wonderful and unique flavour of our steaks. Freshly fired each day, the grill uses handmade coal derived from dropped red gum and mallee roots lifted by farmers during clearing. The coals add a subtle flavour to the meat during cooking that cannot be replicated with traditional gas or electric grills.Providing an atmospheric link between Seasons and The new Spanish Bar & Grill is our Wine Bar. Open daily from 5.00pm you can choose to relax in our low slung leather lounges, or soak up the al fresco atmosphere of the vine covered arbour while savouring boutique beers or hand muddled cocktails. We recommend a classic with a local twist — the Blood Orange Caiprioska!With at least one sommelier always on duty finding your way around our extensive local and international wine list (over 200 offerings) is a treat.

Good dinner in Mildura

We chose to have our dinner there during our night on a stop over in Mildura. Food was good, well prepared and tasty. We chose a local wine called "The Executioner". It was indeed a great one. Service was friendly and efficient. We can warmly recommend this restaurant

Table service was fantastic, the staff knew about the beverages they were serving, unlike the brewery. The steaks were perfectly cooked and it all came together for a perfect dinner. To have the quality service, prime quality and sized steaks, dessert and a nice bottle of "the Executioner" for under $160 was surprising to say the least.

The staff are friendly and helpful. We were sitting adjacent to the grill area, which was interesting to see one chef, in a small area prepare beautiful food. It's a great place to dine.

We had a lovely meal. The bruscetta was delightful, the lamb ribs fell off the bone. The Spanish Chicken was very tender and full of flavour. Staff were very attentive and quite friendly.

We went to eat there on a Saturday evening but was told we had to wait 15 mins for a table even though there were empty tables around. They said we could sit at the bar and wait (maybe that was why they delayed us getting a table to promote us to have a drink while waiting), we had a... More

Wow, what a feast. Pork belly for a starter, and Spanish sausage combo for main, with some fine Barossa red wine. This was great, side of roast veg to help even things out. The great thing is service. When you main arrives, the waitress comes over with the trolley loaded with a variety of mustards and salt/pepper. Great wine list!... More
