Carino Tapas Bar Overview

Chatting groups of North Melbourne foodies are transported to the quaint back alleys of Barcelona, from the courtyard of Carino Tapas Bar on Mount Alexander Road in Ascot Vale. Spanish red cushions, mosaic tiling, terracotta awnings and iron furniture provide a backdrop for plates of striking tapas; and for the wine, tempting Spanish offerings join Australian choices on a varied list of red and white vintages. Create a procession of flavours, starting with the likes of sherry marinated figs and Monte Enebro cheese on grilled sourdough, before moving onto crispy spiced calamari with preserved lemon aioli, or pan-fried chorizo in a red wine reduction. Keep the courses coming with chicken, lime and pistachio meatballs in Romesco sauce, ideally finishing with decadent churros con chocolate.

Best Known For
