During a weekend stay in Sydney, my partner and I decided to go for a walk to see what dinner options were around. We looked at a few places and came to the decision to try something different and we were very glad that we did. Not only was the food amazing, but the atmosphere was warm and inviting. We... More

Went to Capitan Torres for a Sunday lunch and it was quieter than I expected. We had an array of entrees as tapas ( although we could have chosen the cheaper tapas) as well as two seafood grills ( main meals ) and it was more than enough for five people. The food was fresh, well presented and plentiful. The... More

Wandered in on a couples night out for a quick meal. Shared prawns and paella served by polite staff, happy to talk about the food and make a recommendation. Good for an easy, no stress meal.

We stopped in to Capitan Torres for late supper one night during our prep-time and business meetings in Sydney, it seemed like it was a Spanish restaurant in Chinatown (or very close to) and being part Spanish and a fan of Fernando Torres (football player) we thought we would try it out. There was another set of business men in... More

We have been going here for years. Over the time the food has gone up a down a little. We had lunch here last week and the food was very good. The service is always good and we seem to have known the main waiter forever.

When a restaurant can't get sangria right..... you know it's gonna be a bad night. The tapas were OK not great, the sangria was tart and cheap. The entree was horrendous with no flavor. I think it's safe to say Australia is not known for its culinary awesomeness and this place just proved that even more to us. GO SOMEWHERE... More

The atmosphere in the restaurant looks a little tired. But the food was worth the money. We had the $50 banquet and everything was very good. Speed of service was excellent, although it wasn't a busy night. Good array of beers as well.

This restaurant is situated about a 10 minutes walk from Museum station at Hyde Park. The staff were efficient, friendly and helpful with explaining the menu. The portion sizes were generous and the was tasty. We felt it was not too badly priced considering it's location - would recommend if you want something a bit different.

Took my daughter for lunch, the manager is still the same (we both have grey hair now). greeted as an old friend, currently living in the UK, well worth the trip the food is as good as ever. Thanks Capt. Torres, I will be back next year.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
