About Tinto

Bringing the bright flavours and exhilarating atmosphere of Barcelona to the heart of Melbourne’s inner east, Tinto on Burwood Road in Hawthorn offers a relaxed setting for people to meet and eat. With a long Spanish-style bar and dining area, as well as alfresco footpath eating and a small courtyard, Tinto is the ideal place for a catch up with family and friends over a cerveza or vino, while grazing on delicious tapas. During chilly months, cosy up next to the gas log fire while snacking on beetroot cured salmon, pickled radish, roast beetroot, smoked goats’ cheese, horseradish and lavosh. Perhaps share larger plates like slow-cooked lamb shanks, stuffed with piquillo peppers and served with grilled pear and dukkah crust; or Wagyu flank steak, confit potato cylinders, aioli and red mojo.

Amazing food and staff. My experience at Tinto was great.


Truly Catalan
Food arrived on time, was as authentic as you can get in Melbourne. Would definitely return.




The most incredibly executed menu.
The food looks beautiful and tastes even better. The restaurant has such a lovely atmosphere which feels very authentic and homely. Chef Nacho is such an incredible talent! Can’t wait to be back.


Exceptional Spanish cuisine and the friendliest Chef in town!
The squid-ink seafood paella is a must have. Fresh seafood with the chef's magic touch makes it a real special dish. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and a wonderful, friendly Spanish chef in Nacho, making it all the more worth visiting.


Cozy, great atmosphere, great food. Love this place!


Brilliant restaurant and food !


Fantastic Spanish food experience
Great food and atmosphere. I love this place!



Authentic Spanish gastronomy
Best Spanish cuisine in Australia. Period.


Best Spanish restaurant
Two years ago, I was to Melbourne from Barcelona. During my stay, I visited this restaurant twice, and both were great dining experiences with very elaborate and tasty typical Spanish dishes, like seafood Paella, Patatas Bravas, croquettes and calamari. I recommend it.


Some of the best dishes i've ever eaten. The duck fat fried bread with smoked butter and anchovy was incredible as were all the dishes. Service fantastic as well and nice atmosphere. Highly recommend.


Authentic Spanish Food
We are from Barcelona (Spain), ??and when we visited Melbourne last year we went to this restaurant for dinner. The dishes we tried (Spanish omelette, crisp-fried Australian squid, cod croquettes, barramundi suquet, and crema Catalana ...), were perfectly cooked. The best Spanish cuisine restaurant in Melbourne, without a doubt.


This place is just gorgeous... staff are warm, attentive and friendly, the ambience is cosy and inviting and the dishes are well executed, flavoursome and prepared with great care.


Excellent service, enjoyable ambience, exceptional food. Incredible desserts with unusual flavour synthesis.


Probably the best Spanish tapas I have tried in Australia. I met one of the chefs whilst dining there and he told me this is just the start and they have yet to reach their full potential. So will definitely be back to see this place grow.
