Great table service, interesting fusion of international cuisines, good quality food overall, small but interesting wine list (cocktails, on the other hand, are more their thing), and prices about where you’d expect. Will be back.

We were very impressed with the standard of food, except the kangaroo carpaccio where the kangaroo was overpowered by the taste of the beetroot. The shoulder of lamb was magnificent. Wine list was great, I loved that they had a spanish tempranillo available by the glass. The cocktail list was amazing...some very interesting cocktails that had different tastes like bitter and sour, not just sweet like you see in most bars these days.

Nice venue, GREAT COCKTAILS! The room has a really cool ambiance; energetic but not too busy. In the two times I’ve been there I’ve found the food to be really nice once and great once. Service has been outstanding both times. Love the place and will be back!

Great atmosphere, great food, great service. Although we were above the bar and DJ area upstairs, it was a bit too noisy for easy conversation. But we are old farts so ... some dampening of the sound on the upstairs walls would be welcome.

The food was exceptional, we had our 11 and 13 YO kids with us, they loved all of the food just as much as we did. We had six dishes which we shared. We will definitely be back. Service was timely with good recommendations. Plates were well priced.

We'd wanted to visit Don Tapas since it was a pop up, at last we did it and were very impressed
Very friendly service. The Alter Ego are very nice but need to learn what an Aperol Spritz is.
Not sure what they did with the first effort, left out the Prosecco I think, anyway the second they filled it with Prosecco and left the Soda, we decided to run with that.
Foods very good

It was my first time at Don Tapa, but knew about your menu before I went. The food was as good as I was hoping it would be. Everything we ordered was delicious! The young man who served our table was also delightful. Thank you. My mother, brother and I enjoyed our night and will certainly return.

Nice restaurant and food was good... not a huge choice
no air con so it could get a bit hot inside....
Service was great but it was pretty quiet so would expect it to be...
Worth going there for a casual lunch
Had cocktails previously there and they are great

I have been to this restaurant a few times in the past and have been the first to rave about it! It was my favourite place to take people from out of state. The wontons were amazing and I loved the fusion vibe. I was told the chef has changed recently and unfortunately the food did not wow me the way that it used to.

Really enjoyed going here since it has been recommended to me on several occasions. Outside seating was great & the establishment was all very funky; with a variety of bars & food offerings with a slight difference. Knowledgeable cheery staff; good food & well made cocktails. Will be back soon.

It was a rip off dinner. We were told the pork dish was a bit fat, but it turned out with all fat! $36 was charged just for this dish which was not even an entree for two nor a main. Overall paid fine dining price for non-special small portions food.
