“Great Food. Great Atmosphere. Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

With a craving for Tapas or Paella whilst on a weekend stay in Melbourne, we turned to Google and TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed in our choice! Would definitely come back when in Melbourne.

“Super meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

This restaurant was the food highlight of a weeks holiday in Melbourne (and we ate in a lot of restaurants) . Chef's 8 course choice was excellent and the service was charming and perfectly paced. The noise level upstairs was fine for conversation. We all loved it.

“First time to this Tapas Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Again, did the research to find this bar and decided to book on previous positive reviews. We were lucky enough to get a last minute Sat night booking (6.15pm-8.15) which was fine. We were given a table upstairs on the mezzanine level which has nice cosy atmosphere. The service was excellent considering the waitresses had to go up & down the stairs to the kitchen and bar. the food was very good and served with a smile. Will definitely go again : )

“A touch of Spain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Went to Melbourne for a food and fun weekend. Tucked away down an alleyway was this a gem. We specifically searched the internet for a tapas delight. Atmosphere was magic, service excellent. seated next to the chef we were given complimentary dishes at random times. Highlights - anchovies, octopus, clams, olives

“Great Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us and we're so happy we went. We arrived late from Perth but we were still greeted with a friendly welcoming smile. The waiter was very good and we went with his tip for a range of great dishes that suited our tastes. I don't normally like Tapas, but this was delicious.
When the restaurant was closing we were politely asked to take our drinks to the bar next door, which was also another great find.
Great night with great friends, would highly recommend this restaurant.
