“AMAZING staff and food isn't bad either”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

From the moment we walked in the staff were fabulous. There was a little misunderstanding with our table where we had to move but they were very apologetic and throughout our delicious meal (I recommend the chili and garlic prawns, sangria and churros with heavenly chocolate sauce) the staff kept checking back with us and were very cheerful and fun. Best restaurant iv been to in a long time.

“Good Tapas at a good price”
Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

The food is very good. Recommend trying the garlic prawns, chorizos, lamb skewers and potato bravas. It gets very busy, Went on a Tuesday night and were booked solid, so book ahead. There was a mix up with our order with a dish coming late so the owner didn't charge us for the dish which was unexpected and a nice gesture. If you're looking for good tapas at a good price, this is your place! Highly recommend it.

“Yum!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance on a Friday night - it was just down the street from our hotel. Luckily, they found space for us even though they were packed! We ordered several different tapas to share and of course the sangria. The wood fired pizzas also looked great. It was a very loud place, but was a great dining experience. Just beware that you will stink of garlic for ages afterwards (but its worth it!)

“Best spanish restaurant in sydney”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

The one thing we always order is the seafood paella. The texture of the rice is not soggy yet not too dry, the seafood is fresh and is a perfect way to share amongst friends.

Also get the tapas dishes, ie chorizo, potatoes, mushrooms, garlic prawns.

Last time we came here with a big group and got the set menu 4, initially we thought it wasn't going to be enough and were contemplating whether to get extra tapas, lucky we didn't, cause the food just kept coming out continuously, til the point that we had no room on the table and no more room in our bellies!!
