Read a great review in a travel magazine so wanted to try-The place was packed and buzzing with groups having lunch. After some very tasty rolls we finished with caramelised shortbread and coffee. Delicious!

Look forward to a revisiting on my next Melbourne getaway!

The food was definitely Spanish Tapa's and tasty and well presented. The service was friendly and professional. The food was well priced and although we selected from the menu the lunch time special was of great value. The décor is modern and does not have the character of some Tapa's bars in San Sebastian but the food compensated. We will return.

Tasty Spanish food in the Docklands area. I have had lunch there twice now and they have a great special where you get a main, a side and half a glass of wine for $25. Great value as a main usually costs about $19. I've had the chicken with paprika and the flatfish with smoked eggplant - both very tasty. The side salads and bread with yoghurt are also very good.

Went here on a business trip after a review in Gourmet Traveller and glad I made the decision. Great food and wine. Little bit of something special in the urban Docklands. Will be going back on the next visit.

We visited here based on word of mouth and were not disappointed. Had made a booking and this was a good idea as on a Friday night it was crowded. Our waiter was extremely helpful in all facets of describing what would work as entree, main and drink choices as we wanted to taste the traditional foods and ensure they all mixed and matched. Some of the choices on the menu will surprise you but the taste sensations are fantastic. I don't recall the last time I had tapas but this was a fantastic experience all helped by the friendly staff, the quick service and the absolutely magnificent food.
The atmosphere was extremely vibrant and if you are after a different dining experience that will tingle your tastebuds and you are willing to let your tastebuds do the ordering, then you will not be disappointed. The portions were the right size given the quality and variety of what you order. Be adventurous as the mix of sweet and sour combinations will really surprise you.
Will definitely return to here when back in Melbourne.
