    We love eating at this restaurant, we took our friends and they loved it too. The seafood paella was delicious and they have a great variety of tapas. Sangria was very enjoyable to drink.

    Cosy neighbourhood gem serving authentic and delicious food. Our group was after a fairly quick tapas meal before going out. The food came out promptly and the staff were very friendly. Worth a visit - we will be back for sure.

    We did the all you can eat tapas for $39. Offer is available Tuesday- Thursday. Good selection in the all you can eat menu. Quality of the food is amazing. Place is understaffed but the staff are lovely and doing their best. Will definitely come back for the delicious food!

    We love this restaurant, the food is always delicious. A seafood paella is a must a long with a litre of red sangria. Highly recommend. Service was good and very COVID friendly.

    This dining experience was a total rip-off. They have an all you can eat tapas Tue- Wed & Thu. When we sat down, we told the waitress we would like the all you can eat tapas, and she said that it was not valid this month of December. We told her it was advertised both in the website and with a big sign at the entrance of the restaurant. As it was already 6pm, I did not want to leave the restaurant and have to look for another one in the middle of the rain. And I did not want to start a bug discussion, which would have risen my blood pressure. I may be a cynic, but they probably have many cases where people just stay, but it is a short lived way of getting guests into a restaurant. False advertising is not the way to go to increase revenue. I will be putting a complaint with the Ombudsman because they cannot get away with this type of actions. The food was nothing to write about, so the whole experience was a disappointment. The place looks dingy and dark, so we will never go back. A pity, cause I have Spanish ancestry, and was really looking forward to a great Spanish meal in Sydney. You are a bad name for Spanish food, plus the paella had no socarrat...

    The service and ambience of the venue was very good. However, the food was pretty underwhelming. The bread was dry, the taste lacked punch and flavour. Overall, this made our evening disappointing. We wouldn't return due to the quality of food, even though there was a good tapas offer.

    Absolutely amazing in terms of experience and the food. Not only the best Spanish restaurant I’ve been to, but also one of the best restaurants I’ve been in Australia. Highly recommend to go to this place for a visit. Will be going the second time

    Can tell they use fresh ingredients. Ordered 6 tapas with 1 main and was enough for 3 people. Serving time was real quick.

    The restaurant was so busy and as a result super loud making it hard to talk around the tables. We were brought one individual tapas dish every 15 mins or so so it was a long dinner and the food was quite oily

    Busy and bustling little Spanish eatery. The food is excellent and the paella reminds me of the last time I was travelling in Spain.
