The food was well presented and tasty. Our companions had travelled extensively in Spain and were pleased with the food on offer.

The service was impeccable for our girls lunch, with an attentive, but no overbearing, waitress. The food was plentiful and tasty. We particularly liked the lamb skewers and the calamari, and friends raved about the hot chocolate for dessert. There is an extensive wine menu - I would have liked to have seen some white from Galicia, but it's hard... More

We just had a fabulous evening dining at La Sangria. We ordered a section of tapas and a Squid Ink Paella to share, probably too much food but it was all delicious. We were able to bring the leftovers home. We ate soft shell crab, patatas, meatballs, eggplant, prawn/shrimp and the chorizo were smokey and spicy - so yum. Wash... More

Welcoming, consanguineous atmosphere awaits this noisy, yet cosy dining space. Staff engaging and attentive. Tapas the only way to fly. Chorizos not the best - funny little boy's penis look alikes, pre-cooked, flopsy, tasteless. Potato in garlic sauce delish. Lamb skewers tender, juicy, tasty. Tuna salad also very good. Croquettes however tasted mass produced, as though bought from "croquettes are... More

This place turned out to be a very nice surprise. We had the Spanish omelette, Patatas bravas, soft shell crab and chicken rolls - they all turned out to be very nice. As you can see in the pictures, the Spanish omelette was the biggest surprise. We've been to a lot of Spanish restaurants and we've never had omelettes served... More

Staying in Balmain

Neighborhood Profile
Balmain
Take the ferry to the inner west suburb of Balmain and be enchanted with this picturesque and eclectic waterside area. A stroll down Darling Street will take you on a tour of coffee shops, boutique delicatessens and shops offering wholefood products and organic cuisines. Yoga studios abound, and live music emanates from the hotels at night. As the place where the Australian Labor Party formed in 1891, Balmain has commonly been known for its “working class culture”. It has evolved into a health-conscious heaven with a laid back attitude, offering one of the most vibrant food and bar scenes in Sydney.
