Meet the Chef

Head chef Ignacio Castells Rusinol is a Barcelona native and was sponsored by Tinto to come to Melbourne to take charge of the kitchen in 2017/18. He did his training in some of the best restaurants in Barcelona before working in the UK and Azerbaijan. He brings with him an intrinsic knowledge of Spanish and Catalan cuisine. His approach is to maintain the authentic flavours of Barcelona but adjust the plates to include the fresh approach our Melbourne customers are looking for.

    Ahhhh-mazing! Myself and two friends dined at Tinto for the first time tonight. We were blown away by not only the fabulous food but the service was also fantastic. The venue itself is charming, cosy and acoustically pleasing. I can’t wait to visit again!

    We have eaten at Tinto on several occasions over the past few years and always enjoyed ourselves. The wait staff are always super helpful, and the food is delicious. From the tapas menu we recommend the jamon croquetas and the chorizo, with a special mention for the salt bush calamari. Raciones of beef cheeks and the fish stew were the standouts. And don't miss a serve of churros for dessert.

    Haven’t eaten there since before lockdown and was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately the whole experience was well below past experiences. The cold greeting, being asked if we were ready to order by three different people before we had even opened the menus, the food was clearly not sourced or prepared to the same standard.

    Quaint venue with a casual vibe and warm ambiance. We both enjoyed the paella and the wine was delicious. Looking forward to sampling more of the menu on our next visit.

    great restaurant in Hawthorn! Everything we ate was delicious and the service was great. They all wore masks, took our contact details down, and we felt very comfortable eating there. Very enjoyable dinner on our first night of freedom in months!

    Dissapointing paella for a Spanish haunt- it lacked taste and was very expensive per person, for a sharing dish, that was mediocre at best. Otherwise the resteraunt is nice atmosphere and the staff very accommodating.

Tinto Team

Tinto is an authentic Spanish WineBar that brings the flavours and exhilarating atmosphere of Barcelona to the heart of Melbourne’s inner east. The space is small and intimate with a long bar reminiscent of a tapas bar you would find off La Rambla in Barcelona. With many of the staff Spanish speaking, for a second you might actually feel like you’re in Spain, dining out after a much needed siesta. Popular dishes are the classics like croquettes, calamari and Jamon Serrano from the flywheel slicer with many seasonal and modern Spanish dishes on the blackboard. Wash it all down with either local or Spanish wines, and you’re in for one scrumptious Spanish evening. For those who live locally, consider yourself lucky to have such a great neighbourhood gem in your hood.

Best dish: Arroz ‘Tinto’
