My partner and I are actually from Sydney. We stumbled upon some reviews for this place while we were searching online for a good Tapas place for our upcoming Auckland visit.
From the moment we called to make a reservation (from Sydney), we were made to feel very welcome and invited.
When we actually got there (it can be a little hard to find if you don’t know the area), we were greeted by a smiling staff and full tables. Everyone appeared to be enjoying a relaxing time.
We were treated to various tastings from our knowledgeable and cheerful hostess (who I believe is the owner) and her thorough passion for all things Spanish shone through.
Spanish wines were selected for us based on our regular wine preferences and a taste or two confirmed that the selection was spot on. We also indulged in some sweet sherry and are very glad we did so!
The food itself is wonderful! Mouthwatering dishes delivered to your table as soon as they are ready. We loved every single dish we tried (and there were a few) – even having seconds of the exquisite pork belly and pear chutney.
Throughout the entire night we were in heaven. The staff are so friendly and enthusiastic about the food and wine, you can’t help but feel special. This was definitely a highlight of our trip to NZ.
If you love Tapas, I urge you to make the trip to Newmarket and Basque kitchen & bar. You won’t regret it.
(Oh! Prices were very, very reasonable too.)
