    Cute place. Was quiet when we first went in at 5pm but by 6pm it was buzzing. As it is was small place it got quite loud so isn’t the spot for a d&m but good vibe nevertheless. Drinks were nice but food was a bit average, like what you might get at a nice pub. Didn’t really get the Spanish influence in the dishes we ordered. that being said we only ordered 4 items so maybe other things would be better.

    Had a lovely meal with friends. The servers were friendly, helpful and attentive. Tapas were delicious and the cocktails and wine were spot on. We were in a booth which was a bit cramped for 4 of us but other than that, a fab night!

    Only very small and can be quiet noisy however we were in a corner table next to the window so was a little quieter. Very buzzy atmosphere. Great service. We had the starters and the tapas. Sardines were amazing. Would definitely come here again when next in Melbourne.

    We were so well looked after! The server had read our message and knew we’d been to moulin rouge, we told him I bought a place and I got a free cocktail. I couldn’t have enjoyed the experience more. I’ve recommended the place to my family and friends!

    Great little gem hidden away - cheerful and knowledge staff, great drinks (beer, wine and mocktails) and great tasting food. We had the tasting menu which, at $60 p/person, was a steal. Thank you for a lovely meal and evening out!

    I attended the bottomless brunch with 6 friends for my birthday. The food was so delicious and substantial. The dessert flan/ creme caramel was out of this world! The gin tonicas were such a great bottomless drink. Three different flavours and they kept flowing. For a bottomless brunch vibe, I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was. The staff were so attentive and lovely. Highly recommend! I’ll be coming back again! Thank you!

    Fantastic service, food and cocktails. The bottomless brunch was brilliant value and our server even preordered cocktails for us so we didn’t have to wait between drinks. We were sat outside for the first hour which was chilly but the cosy blankets helped. Inside the ambiance was very relaxed and we stayed long after the bottomless brunch was over. Thanks for a lovely afternoon

    Unfortunately out party had a very disappointing night here. 55 minutes before we had a drink at our table. 35 minutes before our next. Food was nice we had most of it eaten before we had a drink. $5 for 2 slices of bread which we had to ask for multiple times and the rest of the food was gone by this stage. We left early because the service was so slow. My worst meal out that I can remember. The tables around us had our food before us before we had our drinks and the arrived after us. Very poor service. Very disappointing after the long lockdown.
