Casual
Boque by Tapavino takes its cue from the La Boqueria Markets in Barcelona in style, providing an all-day dining experience. At Boque, the kitchen meets the bar, with chefs taking the orders and then preparing the dishes on the bar in front of you. The food relies on quality produce that is simply prepared with the menu split into sections such as tapas, charcuterie, seafood, land and desserts. Takeaway options include Boque’s delicious Chorizo burger & churros.

A great Friday evening at Boque by Tapavino. On a rainy Sydney Friday evening we were met by smiling professional team and the food just built on this. The only shame was that the restaurant wasn't busier to create a better atmosphere but this was due to weather & COVID and no reflection on the restaurant.

We need to support our better restaurants in these difficult times and this is a better restauarant

Second time dining at Boque by Tapavino - love this place! The staff are charming, and the food is delicious. What started out as a glass of wine and a few tapas ended up a three hour extravaganza! Great way to celebrate a birthday.

Great & plentiful food. Friendly & helpful service. The only downsides were that the music was a little loud & the open doors made it a little cold.

Food was great, service was lovely, chairs aren't very comfortable, sangria is delicious and we had a great time. Would ready to go again and were discussing what we'd order next time!

Went there for dinner on a Friday night. They had only just recently reopened after lockdown. Staff were exceptional. Very knowledgeable and helped with the wine. Which was sublime. The food was outstanding. I highly recommend trying out Boque by Tapavino. I will be back again very soon.

I have been here before and loved it - but Friday night was a mess. We only had an hour before we needed to be at a show - the wine took twenty minutes to come out and they mucked up our order and orders of those around us.
Im pretty sure we got served someone elses food - and when we finally got ours we only got food for one. They missed one dish all together.

It was a friday night and there was a show on AND we had a booking. So I am very confused as to how they were so unorganised.

Having said all that - its a great spot in a busy area - and I will go back because I like it - but I really hope they improve on their service

Foods are good although is small portion but the staff notify in advance for the size of each dishes.
We went on Sat Lunch and they have 25% off for the foods only. But you have to ask for the discount instead they give you the discount by default. Since they have the big sign mentioned 25% off for foods on Sat Lunch.
At the end we checked the bills and ask for the discount. This is the only disappointment at the end.

The restaurant is quite noisy but very convenient to the entertainment/ exhibition centre. The servings were very small and the tapas plates were one item only eg one empanada or one small croqueta. Service was pleasantly delivered but a bit haphazard. Recomended if you are going to a concert and want a quick bite to eat.

Delicious Spanish tapas, as good as the ones you find in Spain! Service was excellent, we were well looked after. The slice of tart on the house at the end of the meal as we were celebrating a birthday was a nice touch and much appreciated. We'll definitely go back!

I would definitely recommend. Food was nice! The only critique I would have is having the menu in english and not in spanish as it is very difficult to decide in another language. I think that was the only thing that made the experience inconvenient. Food and Service was great.

As an absolute lover of Born, we tried this and found the whole experience disappointing. The service was very slow compared to tables around us, noise high, table not very easily accessed (perhaps why the service wasn’t so flash).

Felt like I was sitting in a food court, yet prices are equivalent to other tapavino restaurants if not more expensive wine menu

The service from the start was absolutely fantastic and set the mood for a brilliant meal to follow. They suggest what we should go for and there wasn't one menu item we didn't enjoy and fight over as a table of 5. Honestly one of the best tapas places I have been to, could not recommend more!
