Have been to the restaurant for over 18 years , still the same great food , wait staff. Not far from George Street and Central station, in the area where there were lots of Spanish "stuff" . Great tapas menu, that gives you a taste of many items at reasonable cost. Specials and mains as well , licenced and excellent... More

A real con. Food very average and over priced. Then the waiter deliberately tried to fool us with the bill. Had items on there we did not order, and the the prices for what we did order where higher than the menu. We then started to add the receipt he tried talking to distract. Very shoddy.

Very pleasant evening enjoying tapas and wine after returning from walking to see the Opera House lit up in the dark on our first night in Sydney. Just what we needed after travelling. Very enjoyable. No fuss and very nice food.

Recently visited with my 2 daughters and 3 young grandchildren. We were welcomed by helpful and friendly staff. We choose a number of tapas dishes and they provided a free plate of chips for the children. The tapas were tasty and good size to share We noticed it was very quiet and could use some background music to set the... More

Went there for a dinner with friends and we ordered few dishes with the result that was not as traditional Spanish restaurant you think. Look like nothing a fresh . Even calamari didn't taste good. If you are looking to eat Spanish ......well I think is better don't eat here. All food is full of garlic and you can smell... More

Either a big rip-off or extremelyh overpriced. Went there on 19/12/16, and had 2xTapa dishes, 1 x main course & 1 x desert, plus 3 x Scotch & Cokes and 2 x glasses of red. Total cost $150.00. So much for a reasonably priced Christmas luncheon.

We visited Captain Torres for lunch. We had the $45pp banquet. The food was really disappointing. The prawns were overcooked and rubbery. The paella was stodgy. The spicy food was not spicy and overall the food was very salty. Many in our group left feeling unsatisfied. The service was reasonable but we were all crammed in so tight, the servers... More

It was my first time here and I love tapas. The mussells were to die for, we drank all of the sauce they were cooked in, the mussells were very small though. The calamarie was beautifully cooked as was the chorizo. We also had the suckling pig and paela which were really good. The sangria is also worth getting, very... More

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.
