“Great little laneway find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

After a few wrong turns we found this cute place down a alleyway.....what a hidden gem. Service was great from the moment the phone was answered to the young lady serving us. Food was delightful. I love trying everything so tapas is ideal, a little of this and a little of that and a great bottle of wine...perfect, we will be back

“Great Food. Great Atmosphere. Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

With a craving for Tapas or Paella whilst on a weekend stay in Melbourne, we turned to Google and TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed in our choice! Would definitely come back when in Melbourne.

“Super meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This restaurant was the food highlight of a weeks holiday in Melbourne (and we ate in a lot of restaurants) . Chef's 8 course choice was excellent and the service was charming and perfectly paced. The noise level upstairs was fine for conversation. We all loved it.

“First time to this Tapas Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Again, did the research to find this bar and decided to book on previous positive reviews. We were lucky enough to get a last minute Sat night booking (6.15pm-8.15) which was fine. We were given a table upstairs on the mezzanine level which has nice cosy atmosphere. The service was excellent considering the waitresses had to go up & down the stairs to the kitchen and bar. the food was very good and served with a smile. Will definitely go again : )

“A touch of Spain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Went to Melbourne for a food and fun weekend. Tucked away down an alleyway was this a gem. We specifically searched the internet for a tapas delight. Atmosphere was magic, service excellent. seated next to the chef we were given complimentary dishes at random times. Highlights - anchovies, octopus, clams, olives
