Food was outstanding as was the service. Highly recommend the sizzling prawns which were mind blowingly delicious! We had the 4 course banquet and left with our stomachs exploding. Great night out.

Had dinner at this restaurant on Jetty Road last night and despite there being a few in service was fast and efficient - drinks straight up ! First entree came out quick and the others all fairly quick. Had meat balls and pork belly and was delicious. We didn't try the cocktails or desserts which looked very good too. Recommend... More

Girlfriend and I had a lunch at Tasca Viva. We'd seen it in the Entertainment Book so thought we would give it a try. Decided to sit outside but view of Moseley Square was nil and the Glenelg tram, which stopped just past where we were eating, was extremely noisy. Not over hungry so we ordered starters. Mine would have... More

We had been wanting to try this local restaurant for awhile and finally chose a busy weekend for Adelaide being the Clipsal and Fringe. However they coped really well and luckily we had booked as customers poured in. The service was good but the paella disappointing. The menu states a wait time of 45 minutes but ours arrived earlier than... More

We ate here as a family and were disappointed in the service especially. The food took forever and came out at different times. We had to repeatedly flag down a service person for menus, water, food, the checque, etc. Food was good but waiting for it was hard.

Came here with my partner tonight for a belated valentines dinner because they had a set menu the night before. Id been here a year ago and loved it so was super excited to bring my partner who has been to spain :) Sadly disappointed mostly due to the very small amount of food on the 'banquet menu'. We only...

Once again we enjoyed a lovely dinner here. The various items of food were absolutely delicious and the service rendered by Mathew and Hayley was extremely friendly and efficient.

Took some relatives from out of state here for dinner last week, and we were incredibly disappointed. The food was OK, but took a very long time to come out, even the trio of dips. It was also expensive - even for tapas. The service was terrible - we had to ask for menus to be brought to us, the... More

We enjoyed the 4 course set menu, the entrée selection was my favourite but overall very nice flavours and variety. They also have a great drinks menu, I enjoyed a mocktail and happy to see they have some nice options for anyone not wanting alcohol. Friendly service, main did take awhile to come out but that's the only bad thing... More
