    3 of us enjoyed the $20 lunch special, each ordered something different from the menu and shared. Food was flavoursome, well presented and filling. We also enjoyed a delicious cocktail. Service was friendly and attentive. Table was adequate in size however being the 3rd person I did need to origami my legs into position around the table legs.

    We love the atmosphere, staff are extremely attentive, cocktails, wine and beers Ooh la la - paella is AMAZING, we love trying the dishes on the menu, so each visit is a little bit different -scallops, soft shell crab, duck spring rolls are becoming our favourites. Music on a Monday? YES - great vocalist and personable man asking for song requests. He engaged with everyone in the restaurant. Wonderful night !

    They advertised a "Pizza "Party" every Sunday which consisted of bottomless Pizza plus 2 hours off Beer, Cider or Wine deal for $55. Bookings were "essential", so we booked a table to find out the offer was not available when we arrived, which was a very disappointing. We opted for the share plates and the food was fantastic. Everything was cooked to perfection and the sauces so complemented the food. They did have the advertised live music and the lady was absolutely amazing. My only suggestion is to check the "What's On" offers are actually on before you book if that is what attracted you to the venue. Other than that, you defintiley won't be disappointed.

    Pork belly tacos were great. Paella yummy, serving could have been a bit bigger (more rice maybe). Octopus was lacking in flavour and a little overcooked. Service was excellent. The guy with reddish hair looked after us all evening, he was running from table to table, very attentive and helpful. He’s a real asset to the place. Cocktails were fantastic and so well presented. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the tunes. Will definitely be back.

    We ordered 5 items of food and was informed afterwards 2 was not available. The lamb kofta was over cooked, dry and tasteless. They even ran out of one of the beer. The service was slow. Recommend the chicken karage. We won’t be back as overall the experience was not great.
