A bit disappointing, I realise that there a two sittings but we felt really unwelcome towards the end of our dinner and really rushed in the beginning. Was so hoping for a great catch up with friends before our show.

The service is friendly and the live music very good.
The tapas really didn't do it for us, apart from the croquete.
Expensive mishmash of vegetable dishes. There are better options of real tapas in the CBD.
Good place for a drink and live music

One of the finest Spanish restaurants, that I had been in Melbourne. Splendid food and service, topped up with live music. Had a wonderful dine out with my wife.
I would recommend this restaurant to all my family and friends.

Admit that I am not used to Tapas restaurants, however I have to say that the value here is negligible. Yes, nice jazz fusion music, is the best I can do. However $20 for a tiny junk of Barramundi looking very lonely on the plate all by itself was hardly enough to feed, an already well fed cat. If you like the idea of being seen to spend a large amount of money for very little return, then this is your place..If you want a decent meal for a decent price go elsewhere.

This is my second visit and using a voucher. This is at a request of a friend I took the first time. The food is once again magnificent. This is how classy tapas should feel and taste like. Prices are definitely not cheap but for the quality I would say worth it. The staff can be a hit and miss. Most of the staff this night was nice but just over worked and didn't see the many many times when we tried to get their attention until I went up to the counter and requested or get the water myself. The maitre d was the worse. The only time she cracked a smile is when we arrived. But once I produced the voucher, her faced turned and that was it. She wasn't particularly friendly and for some strange reason shot me dirty stares whenever we passed glances. Oh well.

Fantastic food, particularly the pork belly and the chicken skewers. Awesome music as well - Sol e Alma Quintetto! Plenty of tables and service was great.
