Outstanding Tapas bar with a modern twist
GAMBA – Crisp Potato with Slices of Poached Prawn & Parsley Aioli. Amazing flavours and textures with super thin and crisp potato slices. Delicate yet packed a punch and a great way to start the meal. Highly recommended! COGOLLOS – Baby Cos Lettuce with Anchovy & Pickled Garlic. Light and fresh, this was quite an interesting dish. Garlic and anchovy are strong flavours but when topped on the freshest cos lettuce, it was a delight and not overpowering at all. TOSTADA – Pressed Pork Sandwich, Red Onion Jam & Quail’s Egg. So different from the tostadas that we are used to at most Spanish restos. Again a super thin and crispy base, hardly get the flavour of pork but the onion jam was simply stunning VEIRA – Port Phillip Bay Scallop Baked in its Half Shell with a Jamon &Garlic Sauce. It’s hard to go past scallops and we are so glad that we decided to order it. Perfectly cooked, plump sweet scallops in the most delicious jamon and garlic sauce. ANCHOA – Hand-filleted Cantabrian Artisan Anchovy on ?Crouton with Smoked Tomato Sorbet. Anchovies are an acquired taste so if you are new to it, you might be a bit hesitant about the flavours of this dish. But if you love it, then this would be a great one to try. I was so blown away by the flavours of the smoked tomato sorbet. BROCCOLINI – Chargrilled Broccolini with Manchego Custard and Soft boiled eggs. Never have I tasted broccolini so delicious. That creamy custard and soft boiled eggs oozes over the broccolini resulting in sheer magic on the tastebuds. ACEDERA – Sorrel Sorbet with Kiwi, Citrus, Blood Orange and White Chocolate. A celebration of native Australian flavours with a modern interpretation. Every mouthful was a delight and I could go back just to have this again.


This was an outstanding restaurant, the menu was exceptional and innovative. The bite-sized tapas were packed full of interesting flavours and the raciones were filling and delicious.


What can I say. There are no words to describe. You can have to go to experience it for yourself. Spanish Tapas to die for. So delicate yet beautifully presented and just scrumptuous. Every single dish was perfect and the wine list is great as well. Even the olive oil sorbet was heaven!!


Loved it! Going back again next month!


This is our little hidden treasure of Melbourne - i love this place, its cosy and you just enjoy every mouthful - perfect!


Outstanding great atmosphere with great food.


Believe everything you read and all the hype about this restaurant. What a ripper! Bold flavours you would expect from Spanish food I cannot wait to go back and try the other half of the menu that we wanted to order but couldnt fit in! Beef Cheeks with cauliflower puree is a must. Fantastic intimate restaurant and great service. My advice is to get there as soon as you can. Book well in advance.


Lovely unusual flavours. Quick service for lunch. Good to have outdoor seating to have a meal outside or inside.


The food here is nothing short of phenomenal. The staff are friendly and attentive without being too intrusive and the atmosphere while feeling a little cramped at times is warm, inviting and friendly. Every time we come here our "must haves" are the Anchoa, Cecina and the Carillera de buey. This place fills up quickly and booking well in advance is a good idea.


Absolutely loved this place and it is booked out for weeks at a time for a very good reason. Be patient, plan ahead and it will be the dining experience of the year. The best in Melbourne!
