They have an amazing steak menu. Great pub, with excellent food and their tapas is surprising good - not just 3 olives in a dish, authentic tapas of proper proportions and bursts of flavour. Worth a visit. Great atmosphere.

We dined here on a Monday night. We were pleasantly surprised that all wine under $100 was half price if you bought a meal. The food looked great, wonderful tapas and a very good wine list. We had a meat feast, all was great quality but we were kept waiting for ages for our main course and when it arrived... More

Have eaten here before and always consistently good. The ham croquettes are crunchy on the outside and beautifully creamy inside. The calamari is golden fried and tender and the homemade chorizo with apple sauce is wonderful. The seafood paella for 3 was ample and loaded with seafood. The slightly burnt bottom of rice and sauces is so yummy. A glass... More

Just loved everything about the place. Food was amazingly good. Grilled calamari was to die for. Roast Cabrita was a standout. Will definitely be back

Spent a wonderful afternoon sitting in the courtyard enjoying some delicious Spanish tapas and Sangria. We had the fried calamari, Tumbet, selection of Spanish cured meats and the slow cooked pork belly and all meals were amazing but the slow cooked pork belly was the winner as it was the best I've ever tasted. The Sangria was one of the... More

My husband and I had drinks and dinner on a Friday night. It was cold and raining outside but warm and cosy inside. Food was fantastic as was the service. Very attentive and friendly. We had croquettes (excellent yum) and garlic and chilli prawns for entrée. The waitress even gave us extra bread to soak up the juices. For main... More

This place used to be so busy you would have to make a reservation to ensure you would get a table. But today, (one year has passed since our last visit), the place was dead. It is Sunday lunch and I only counted 3 other customers - a warning that things had changed, but stupidly we decided to stay. We... More
