“A greater selection of wine by the glass required”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

I think this is a good standard of neighbourhood restaurant - cosy but not great. We shared five tapas and some wine for about 100 dollars. The potatoes were okay and the anchovies were vinegary. The salted cod was good but the tomatoey / bread was all wrong. I not sure the chef here is Spanish - or faithfully representing the recipes as well as they could. Ambience is friendly and helpful - wait staff good - but I think it needs more wine by the glass choices and better presentation of dishes

“Greatly improved!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

I always thought the Randwick El Bulli was disappointing compared to its cousin in Surry Hills, but went there today and every dish we ordered was excellent! Service good too.

“Great Graduation Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

The perfect restaurant for an extended family gathering following a graduation ceremony at UNSW. Wonderful service prior to the dinner. Great selection of tapas dishes which just kept coming & delicious jugs of Sangria. Interesting beers also. There was no problem with having our own celebration cake. A wonderful evening for all.

“love lunching here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Have had lunch here several times and always happy to go back. The menu is great, the choices wide ranging and the waitstaff pretty good too. They have a range of small dishes to choose from including seafood (whitebait, octopus, calamari, mussels, garlic prawns), paella balls, meatballs, stuffed mushrooms and capsicums and a lovely sangria by the glass. Love it.
