“Fantastic tapas and cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

This place is definitely my favourite local venue. The food is always good and the menu changes often. The crispy chicken is a must to try, tender calamari, pork belly also good dishes. I found the cocktail list to be extensive, with a great variety at affordable prices - try the tonic iced tea served in a carafe for two people. Staff are friendly and remember your name. Would recommend booking a table if going in the weekend, they are always fully booked! We have been able to get food after 9pm here, which is often very difficult to find in Chirn Park.
