You can tuck yourself away with your group of friends but still be a part of the total scene The set up is magic. The food is delicious, the drinks reasonably priced for where it is and the staff are fabulous. I look forward to going back each month with my friends for our catch up

We came for dinner before going across the road to see The Sound of Music at The Regent Theatre. We had the all you can eat Tapas which was very good value. Lovely place if a little dark, sets the mood though, but the waitresses were lovely and friendly and very attentive. So with the tapas they recommend you order... More

Took my wife here for dinner before we went to a show. We shared the all you can eat Tapas for $35 pp. You can order 2 dishes per person at a time and they came quickly and were able to order again promptly for the dishes to follow. Attentive wait staff and efficient service. Nice selection and all dishes... More

Was here on Tuesday this week. As always great food and plenty of it. What made this time extra good was the speed of the service, these guys really on the ball. Great service. The only minus was no coffee and no tea at the end of the night. I'm sure this was a one off, and not the norm.

Booked a table to celebrate a mate's 40th on a Friday evening and was quite impressed with the level of customer service and attentiveness to our table. The tapas food that we ordered was very good as well as the happy hour specials which go on till 9 pm. Will definitely visit again.

We visited for dinner on a Friday, the staff and the food were brilliant, there was also a fantastic range of drinks. Their menu had something for everyone, the dishes were beautifully presented and tasted just as good. Unfortunately, the music was incredible loud so we could barely hear each other or the staff as they explained the menu (multiple... More

The staff is super friendly and attentive, the people are going, energetic and fun. We ordered the tapas with a few beers which were very good. The only item we didn't like was the squid... we ordered the... More

Visited on a Friday night early before a show. We all had the $34.50 all you can eat tapas. The food was great, we enjoyed everything we ordered. I also had a very tasty white chocolate espresso martini. Will definitely visit again!

There wasn't a single thing I didn't like about this place. I love good food and I love a good cocktail and I tell you my friend this place has a rather substantial selection of both. Around 7pm on a Saturday night our small party of 3 head out. No booking (I know, bad) but we're squeezed in until about... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
