After many disappointing meals in Sydney, we finally found what we were looking for at Despaña. The food was exceptionally good with incentive combinations that really worked. We had pork and veal meatballs in a carrot and fresh tomatoes sauce. Service was great lovely spanish gils . Great Sangria just and the bill was good too

Despana Overview

Celebrating Spanish culture, Despana on Glebe Point Road in Glebe draws a lively crowd. With wooden oak barrels and bright red geraniums, a cheery vibe entices diners to relax by a fireplace in a cushioned annexe, before dining amidst log and mirrored walls. For the warmer months, sip sangria alfresco under the pergola, before selecting from an ever-evolving menu, using the finest quality ingredients imported from Spain paired with fresh, local produce. Perhaps begin with white anchovies and toast, or a cured meat tasting plate with pickled Guindilla peppers, peppers and sourdough before delving into bold tapas dishes such as veal and lamb meatballs, or fried baby squid. For groups who love to share, the signature paella with prawns, mussels and clams won't disappoint.

Best Known For

Our Sangria, served with fruit and a stick of cinnamon enjoyed with the Jamon Serrano or our braised beef cheek.
