The food is gloriously Spanish, whilst offering cafe favourites. At night Chato transforms into a true Spanish Tapas Bar, with the small glasses of wine that give Chato its name. The menu is generous, the prices reasonable and the ambience truly Spanish. When you walk in you enter a true Madrilena experience, with bar and bench seating, a vintage industrial look, welcoming floor staff, and, of course, great Spanish drinks!

Great dinning. Expensive if you are looking for cheap eat. Service is awesome. Food tastes amazing. Menu is frequently changing and frequently visiting.
Menu confusing however the waitress took total control and helped us through it lol
Mouth watering dishes that take you back to your holidays in Spain. Authentic and wonderful restaurant.
Great, friendly and attentive staff (the 2 girls in particular were very busy polishing and serving customer, the young man wasn’t helping much with the cleaning up behind the bar though which seemed unfair). Fantastic food and wine. We will definitely be back :)
Always exceptional food and cocktails. The staff are very helpful and friendly. It’s all so good that it adds up quickly!
Love the place it’s one of fav restaurants the tapas menu is amazing
great food, relaxed but attentive service. Want to go back to try more Tapas but the paella was good, as was the beetroot salad..
I love this restaurant, especially all-you-can-eat tapas nights on Wednesdays!
Amazing food came out fast and fresh and the wait staff were very attentive .... highly recommend this place 👌
Chato unfalteringly serves delicious food. Coupled with personal and friendly service, Chato really is quite a find.
Great food with average but friendly service. Tapas menu was delicious. If in the area give it a go.
It is always a pleasure to dine in this great restaurant.
Love the food, ambience and service.....keep up the great work!
Great quality! Great choice of spanishes dishes. Have been going there for years
Stunning food and staff that really go out of their way to make you feel special.
Perfect as always. Great food and service
The restaurant was too brightly lit and lacked ambience. We had an 8.15pm booking and could not arrive earlier due to being booked out. We arrived to an almost empty restaurant. Portion sizes for meal was too small and not worth the money.
Thanks for a memorable meal. We enjoyed the food very much.
Very friendly staff & the food tastes good, but very overpriced for what you get. The sharing dishes are especially small for what you pay.
Beautiful food - Excellent service, just all up was a fantastic night!
This is the second time I’ve been and loved it! The food is amazing, the service is great and authentic. We did the chefs choice menu and every course was perfect, it’s actually the first time I’ve enjoyed mussels! Can’t fault a thing.
Well taken care of! And the Goats cheese ball is divine!
Six of us had a delicious tapas meal. Yum!! The waitress was lovely and made a fuss of my baby grandson ( who was an I VF baby from Barcelona). This is our third visit and it is alway a fabulous experience.
We will return.
The food was delicious and the service was wonderful, really friendly and intuitive. We didn't have to wait long between courses and left extremely satisfied.
Excellent service, beautiful food; always enjoy dining at this restaurant.
Wonderful service and food was above my exoectatuons
Chato is an amazing restaurant. We highly recommend it. Must haves on the menu include the goat's cheese balls, calamari and lamb with orange salad. Our servers were lovely too!
Fantastic catch up with friends and the food was spectacular. Friendly staff and great atmosphere
Gotta be the best deal for amazing quality food in Melbourne... I go every Wednesday if I could!!
Was really surprised by this little gem of a place! Lovely ambience, attentive, super friendly and knowledgeable staff. Food was delicious, cocktails were yum! A wonderful night 😀 Gracias
As always, beautiful food and wonderful service. Great diversity of dishes
My partner and I dropped in a couple of weeks ago, just looking for somewhere to have dinner. We were so impressed with the food and the service that we organised to meet there for dinner with friends from interstate a week later. They were also very pleased. I almost don’t want to recommend it as that means it will be harder to get a table!
Empty apart from one other couple. Food was overpriced but ok, although the main was quite average. For some reason it was super cold so had to wear a jacket. Bill was a shock.
Amazing customer service and delicious food and spanish wine. Perfect date night. We'll be back :)
Great service, fantastic food and very friendly people. We will be back.
Staff friend and food delicious. Nice space and we’re accomodating of our kids. Fantastic Sunday lunch
We went to Chato on a Wednesday night which had a menu of All you can Eat tapas. Service was top class, our server was so on the ball with drinks and food just kept on coming! Atmosphere was fun, not to noisy, our group of four could chat and laugh comfortably without shouting. We ended up trying every dish on the menu, so tasty! The calamari and the Smokey chicken ribs were ace, as were the whole sardines and the tortilla-hats off to the chef! Will be back again soon 😊
While my husband enjoyed his food, I was somewhat underwhelmed by mine. I am vegetarian so had ordered the (Berenjena) eggplant and goat's cheese balls (Bolos de Cabra) tapas options. I was expecting more than one cheese ball (although I now see that it is listed as a singular item on the menu). I should have read that more closely! So, I believe the tapas items are overpriced for the size they are, although they were tasty. My 'main' course of Bravas was the most expensive and tasteless potato chips I have ever eaten ($12.50). They are definitely more of a side dish so perhaps I could have been recommended a more suitable i.e. tasty Racione!
The service was very good and the sangria was lovely, however I would seek better value for money in the future.
A fun night out. Great choice of Tapas and cocktails. The wait staff were very attentive and fun!
Chato is one of our favourite restaurants because the food is exceptional and unique and the selection of different tapas makes for the enjoyment of the different Spanish taste experiences. Highly recommend.
Best tapas in town.
