    Packed full of Spanish flavour- this place is an old favourite. A tad noisy so great for loud social catch-ups

    Love this place. Great food, great vibe, great staff ???? The charcuterie board is the best. Definitely one of our favourite locals and we keep going back!

    Lovely place to have a wonderful catch up with a few friends. Food was delicious and a cheeky glass of House White for $5 was perfect. With 3 choices of Tapas for $15 or 4 for $20 it was great value for money and many delicious dishes to choose from. You won’t be disappointed and I know I’ll be back. ????

    We loved everything about our first time at Duende. Excellent service (but not too formal), food was delicious and so were the cocktails.

    The food was sensational and the service very good. The advice given on our order was well received. Big but! The wine prices were well over the top. What is it with restaurants that charge 4 or 5 times the bottle shop prices for wine? I understand that some profit needs to be made but the wine prices will stop us going back. Wake up restaurants. Your food is very good, service exceptional but these factors are not enough for us to return.

    Absolutely delicious food and flavours, generous serves for tapas. Seevice was great too. Restaurant was surprisingly quiet which is why 7 for atmosphere, perhaps because a little off busy Oxford Street but I'd call that a bonus!

    Very crowded not much space between tables I think they try to pack too many people in

    The quality and techniques used for the food are good, the service is relatively quick and the prices are value for money for the quantity and quality received. Their beef cheek dish is a must try and is, in my opinion, their best item on the menu.
