We were here after recommendation from our friends who had previously tried and we weren't disappointed.
As our party was 12 strong, you can imagine there was a lot of sharing and plate exchanging. Paella was one of the highlights, we had the seafood version. Bear in mind to order early, there can be a little wait.

For tapas we had be prawns with garlic oil; mushrooms; the lamb skewers and potato cubes with cheese spread. I do apologies dear readers as I did not note down the Spanish names for the above mention tapas. I know it's not Spanish per se but their pasta in pesto is fantastic. My little one throughly enjoyed it.

My advice to people visiting is to make reservations as it gets filled up early, we're actually booked in at 6pm! Come early, enjoy a couple of rounds of tapas (and wine / sangria) before digging into the mains.

We enjoyed our dinner here. The place is just a few steps from metro Sydney central hotel. It's a cozy place for dinner, make sure you make reservation coz it's pretty busy.

Great food but a bit disappointed about desert, the chocolate was too bitter but still a good choice place to eat, will go back again for sure. Thanks guys

For many years now this has been my go to BYO restaurant in Sydney CBD.

The food is always excellent. The service is great and for almost 10 years i have never had a bad experience at this restaurant.

My favourite dishes are garlic prawns, meatballs, lamb skewers. These are a must.

To give some perspective, the bottles of wine i take to this restaurant range from $50 - $100. The food is a good match for the wines and its so hard in Sydney to find a decent BYO (esp in CBD at least).

The prices of food are very reasonable.

Make sure you reserve a table.

Very good Spanish tapas and the pizzas are good too. This place is always full or nearly full. The menu is both tapas and pizzas and there is always a list of tapas specials which are usually worth trying. Of the regular the lamb skewers, garlic prawns, scallops, mussels, chorizo are all good. The Popeye pizza is worth trying. Service is good and the value for money excellent. Great for a quick shared lunch.
