“The highest quality meal I have ever had in Brisbane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This night was a real slice of what true spanish food should be - the huge wine list was so extensive we ended up asking for the waiters recommendation. Food was as unique and flavoursome as I have ever had , and the cheeses were mindblowing.
Its a noisy environment but this only adds to the experience- being treated to a lunch at Aria around the same time really was the litmus test for this place and I must say Aria came out second best

“A great place to dine.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

I came here with my partner for a very nice dinner and was not disappointed. The food is all amazing - it's all tapas and you can choose a certain amount of plates. The wine is also delicious. It does all come with a price though!

“Excellent food and atmosphere, however pricy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Great for a special occasion, particularly couples, Ortiga's menu has a range of small share plates (you'll need about 3-4 per person) with a large range of options. The downstairs main restaurant area has a great atmosphere, and an interesting open style kitchen. Wait staff were knowledgeable (important if your culinary Spanish isn't up to scratch), and service times were reasonable.

The Cordero a la vainilla - Lamb breast, vanilla, spiced chick peas and truffled honey is highly recommended.
