    Such a great gem in the CBD! We were going to a play so we ordered the pre theatre menu and it was perfect! We had a few appetizers, a few mains and a dessert and were out of there with plenty of time to spare before the show. The respected our time crunch and delivered amazing food! It’s an intimate restaurant, with a really cozy feel. Not to loud which was nice and great service staff. Highly recommend, especially before a play:)!

    Attentive and caring service. Yummy food - we had the feeder package $65pp with 2x vege options and 2x normal. All good - vegetarian items almost better. Food brought quickly, tasty. Nice vibe in the restaurant. Not really authentic Spanish, but the Tapas sharing style was fun. A good option for a casual get-togeher in the city, and much better value than many of the surrounding restaurants.

    Crossley St Cantina was so amazing for a Saturday night dinner with friends. The food was incredible and the versatile menu meant that we had mostly delicious tapas with one main to share between four. The wait staff were so attentive and friendly, and made us feel so welcome. We’ll definitely be back!

    We did the Feed Me menu for dinner after enjoying a lunch date a few months back. We were disappointed in the selected food and flavour combos. The entrees were very salty (chicken arancini balls and chorizo) and we didn't have anything to balance out the saltiness. The meatballs lacked flavour but the mains helped make up for this as we loved the patatas, chicken and salad. The staff were lovely. It gets pretty loud inside so not great for a date night but more of a friendship catchup.

    Great place for bottomless brunch! Food was amazing. Although on the website 'cocktails' is listed under the bottomless drink options, when it was only the gin & tonicas, wine and beer that were available. So unless they were referring to some of the gin and tonic mixes as cocktails then I think that's a little misleading. But other than that, highy recommend.

    Everything on the menu is delicious, especially the brussel sprouts and patatas bravas! Must-eat dishes if you ever decide to have a meal here. Staff are very friendly and down to earth :) Price wise is 3.5 out of 5 on my scale, but totally worth it~ Will definitely be coming back continuously in the future!

    My friend and I got the Feed Me menu and it was great! We’re both vegetarian and it was so nice to eat some tasty, creative vegetarian food! We weren’t a fan of the mushrooms or the burnt aubergine but other than that everything was great!

    Tried the feed me menu lunch. The food was amazing, very good quality, some of the best Spanish style dishes I have had. Plenty of food to go around unlike some feed me style restaurants (unable to finsh everything!). Food came out quickly and table service was fast. Place is very cozy to say the least and does get quite loud. Will be back!

    Outstanding food and efficient staff. Layout of the tables are a miss as we were tucked in a very tight container that everyone (the staff and us) could hardly move around in, otherwise an overall good experience. Would go again but would request to not be in the corner.

    Highly recommend the Feed me chefs menu for $65 - we were delighted and full. The staff really know there craft, so let them guide you with drinks as well. Great intimate vibe. I am still thinking about the goat dish that just melted in my mouth (which I never normally would have tried) - yum!!!

    We sat downstairs as a table of six and had a brilliant time. Service, food and cocktails were amazing. Try to squeeze the ‘banquet’ of courses in before a show. Heaps of food. And they even gave us little cheesecake deserts to go. We’re coming back and staying longer. 5 stars.

    Pre-theatre menu was a fantastic experience: excellent food and drinks selection. Staff gave prompt, professional and attentive service without being overbearing, and happily catered for the coeliac member of our party of five. Very reasonably priced for the quality of care we received: would highly recommend.

    Enjoyed the Bottomless brunch on a Saturday afternoon. The Staff were amazing, very attentive, friendly and approachable. The food was excellent and there was more than enough for the experience. Five plates in total all delicious. There was a list of available drinks, from wines, beer, to G&T cocktails. Our glass was never empty, and they served right up to the 90minintes. We were both impressed by the overall experience and thought it was very good value. Would definitely recommend it to our friends, which we already have, and visit again. 👍

    Another great night of always awesome food at the Cantina. It’s the quality of the ingredients and the care that goes into every dish that makes this such a special experience. And not forgetting all the wonderful staff as well - front and back of house - always such a joy to eat here. Don’t forget to leave room for the Cantina baked cheese cake - it’s the best.
