Our first visit to this restaurant and we really enjoyed it. The staff couldn't have been friendlier and the whole atmosphere of the place was relaxed and buzzing. Eight of us were sharing dishes and each one was delicious. The food came out at a good pace and we ended up with a delicious paella. Only one problem though! As... More

We have been here a couple of times. Once just my partner and I ... The food was so good we planned our next visit there and then! We then brought two friends along a few weeks later and the food was just as good. We all enjoyed what we ordered, the staff, the atmosphere and of course their signature... More

Wanted churros and told " we don't do desserts". Fine if it was full but was 2/3rds empty on a Friday evening. Guess they can afford to turn away business.

We love our tapas and this was a first visit to this place. We were not let down, all dishes were excellent - garlic prawns, calamari, potatoes, spicy eggplant, lamb skewers and meat balls. Prawns were the best so we had a second helping. Service excellent and friendly. Will be back

For a very reasonably priced, and deliciously cooked meal covering vegetarian and non-vege options you really can't go past La Sangria near the Town Hall on Darling Street. From the calamari to the churros, the rabbit to the eggplant ragout.. every tapas dish was clearly served with love and attention to flavor. The jug of sangria was the perfect accompaniment....

Hands down best tapas I have had! Definitely try the eggplant entree! And the chick pea entree is a must!! Every dish taste authentic- the only thing I would avoid is the blue eyed fish!

This is an honest family restaurant that has been going for 11 years within the same family, so a stayer as far as restaurants go and I can certainly see why. The food is fresh and beautiful. The owner is passionate about his food & his wine list too. If you are stuck for choice, just ask him and he... More

Staying in Balmain

Neighborhood Profile
Balmain
Take the ferry to the inner west suburb of Balmain and be enchanted with this picturesque and eclectic waterside area. A stroll down Darling Street will take you on a tour of coffee shops, boutique delicatessens and shops offering wholefood products and organic cuisines. Yoga studios abound, and live music emanates from the hotels at night. As the place where the Australian Labor Party formed in 1891, Balmain has commonly been known for its “working class culture”. It has evolved into a health-conscious heaven with a laid back attitude, offering one of the most vibrant food and bar scenes in Sydney.
