We booked this place on a whim as we craved some european food while down in australia for 8 months!! The food was out of this world. We shared 4 dishes and that was enough to fill both of us.

The warm lamb salad was the standout dish and the house red wine was really good. A meal for 2 that filled us both came to under $80 including wine. Now that as to be good for Sydney!!

There was 2 parties on at the venue as well and rather than being annoying it created some atmosphere and the place was really buzzing.

I really have no complaints. The portion sizes were good value. The food was all really good and the service was quick. Could not really ask for more.

The ambience was good and this busy restaurant. However, I was disappointed with the food. Menu descriptions sounded great, but overall, I found the food lacking in flavour. For example, the cous cous mushroom cups were quite bland, as were the calamari and garlic mushrooms. I did enjoy the paella though. I wouldn't bother with dessert next time. The creme brulee is not a patch on what I've had elsewhere. The churros were passable. Prcies overall for tapas were reasonable.

We have been here now a few times over the past few years since it opened. We have never had a poor meal, always received excellent service and the wine list is well priced and is suited to the mainly Spanish cuisine.

We usually go for Paella Valencia and because this takes approx. 30 minutes to make from scratch we have a small starter.

Plenty of choice from an extensive selection of small starters again well priced. This is one to put on the short list, convenient when in the city for shopping and open early which suits us as we like to have an early dinner.

Keep up the good work & great service Pelipe!

A nice Spanish Tapas restaurant in the centre of Sydney. The service was very good and our waiter had a excellent knowledge of the menu and he give a good description of the options, which was a big help. The food was very good, well presented and served in a timely manner. I would recommend the restaurant to others as long as the expectation was not particularly high, it a pleasant comfortable place.

The recommendations from the wait staff were the best choices by far....warm lamb, fig and mint salad and chicken chorizos were a great start on a tapas. We asked for a quick meal as we had tickets for the theatre and we had our first course as our drinks arrived. Wait staff were attentive and pleasant. Food came quickly. Alcohol was on the pricey side but that was balanced by permanently filled water glasses and no pressure to buy. Deserts were special. We'll be back!
