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.

Great tapas options, I highly recommend the croquetas, jamon serrano tostada, octopus with potatoes. Mains are average. Desserts were really good , we tried the churros and creme catalan. Only minor observation was that when they served drinks at happy hour, I think they are trying to slow down the service so you don't order too much which I think it's a bit sneaky. Just don't offer any happy hour at all if that's the case. It took like 15 minutes to serve just a glass of beer and there's only 2 tables to serve at that time (around 5:30pm). Overall though, I would say it's a good place to meet with friends, great tapas, dessert and good service with just the right amount of noise!

Many thanks to Joe and his team, we had a fabulous team lunch. The service was fabulous and the food was very tasty and enjoyable and the set menu provided more than enough food for everyone with everyone's dietary requirements more than adequately looked after. We had a great afternoon and enjoyed not being rushed. Will definitely be back!

We’ve been to the other Tapavino Group restaurants and Boque did not disappoint! The service was great and the food delicious. Great atmosphere in Darling Square, felt like a little La Boqueria in Sydney. We will definitely be back.

Excellent tapas dishes and excellent service and advice. Wine is a little pricey if you're looking for the cheaper end but overall a great day out. We had been here previously so you know it's good if have a return visit.

The food was nice but the restaurant seemed overwhelmed with December diners. Service is usually good at Tapavino restaurants so maybe they tried to accommodate too many people on that particular night.

Always a great time when we visit Boque and the staff are second to none. Fish special is always a treat and the Spanish donuts and tortilla espanola are a great addition to the latest menu. Thanks as always guys

We sat at the bar watching over the kitchen which was great to interact with the chefs who prepared great tasting food. Excellent garlic prawns and octopus with potatoes with tasty and tender tentacles. Very attentive service and no request was too much effort. Excellent matching wine recommendations. Definitely would go back.

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.

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.
