Our endless pages of over 300 Spanish wines and 80 Sherries is an important component of our obsession of all things Spanish, and this reflects in our dedication of bringing the most exciting boutique and artisan wines from around Spain to the Australian Market.

    Very good dining experience. Kylie greeted us and was very friendly and attentive. The waiters were very informative and made some nice recommendations for the menu and wine to enjoy. Food arrived quicky and was tasty. Serving sizes for mains were not that big but delicious. Definitely recommend this restaurant for a lovely meal.

    Food was mostly great, the desserts were a bit disappointing especially the golden gaytime, and the sorbet was average. Staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive at the start of the night, but it did take a while to get the bill and pay, and get drinks topped up later in the evening. They were super helpful with allergies though, and explained what dishes were OK or what could be changed (eg sauce on the side) so others in the group could still have the sauces. They were also great about adding an additional portion to dishes so we had the right amount for everyone in our group. Overall a great meal, great location, I'd definitely recommend it, just maybe skip the desserts and go to the gelato place nearby instead!

    Great location, and amazing food. Overall experience was great, the only thing that marred it slightly was being the feeling of being rushed by our main wait person - not great. But to be fair this was fed back and then it stopped.

    Our group of 5 enjoyed an amazing lunch, accompanied by delicious Spanish wine. The service was excellent, and a special shout out to Michelle who looked after us so well. During the lunch we made several comments to one and other about Michelle's knowledge of the menu, and her high standard of customer service. It's such a shame this level of service seems to be rare! Michelle's a keeper, so look after her !
