“Delicioso!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

Delicious food and good service. We even had our wedding reception there in 2010. The food is quite pricey but that is how all tapas restaurants seem to be no matter which state they're located in.

Nice venue and the best tapas I've had so far.

“I went to the Spanish Tapas bar on a...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2010

I went to the Spanish Tapas bar on a Saturday night. It was already almost full and all the empty tables were reserved. We were welcomed in and invited to sit at the bar and eat ( even though we were in the way of service ). I loved this and was most impressed. Service exceptionally good.. Food: great variety-- don't miss the garlic BBQ Moteton Bay Bugs.This place was buzzing with regulars so they must be doing something right. Ignore the other review and try it ( make a reservation )

“Keep well away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2010

If you are into frozen veg and raw seafood in your (as the waiter said) not traditional Paella then go for it.
Please don't complain as the "manager" will call you a liar infront of your family, threaten you with "NOT TRYING TO RUN AWAY as the cameras are on you" and call the police again infront of a by then , very upset 10 year old. My experience on Spain was a family focussed country where family especially children are highly regarded!
Cut a very long story short, embarassed police, very embarassed waiters (take my hat off to them they really were) and I've got to say the worst example of a manager I have ever met. Brisbane does not need this kind of so called Spanish experience!
