    Food came out quickly. A good variety to choose from. Steak was chewy but other than that food was tasty. Staff were very approachable and friendly. A great experience pre theatre. Very close to Princess Theatre.

    Perfect pre theatre dinner. We were greeted and seated promptly, comfortable seating, good ambience. Our host asked us about any dietary reqs for the pre theatre banquet and then proceeded to bring just the right amount of food at regular intervals to the table. The host was very attentive, the food very yummy, the ambience just right (Noting an early Friday night crowd) and the price was right! Definitely will be back!

    Everything was good except for the temperature. We were very cold even with coats on . Did mention it to the staff who said it was because we were near the door . Felt as if the air con was on . Really distracted from the meal .

    The tapas dishes were very good, if now and again not as flavoursome as we’d have liked. We thoroughly enjoyed the ambience, the hustle and bustle and non stop buzz of conversations all around added to the Spanish feel to the place. We ended the night going round the corner into The Bodega mezcal and tapas bar for margaritas, towards midnight it was even more fun than the Cantina We discovered both have the one owner He’s nailed it in both

    It was great! From the moment we walked in. The staff were lovely, friendly and knowledgeable. We had the ‘Feed me’ a selection that the chef chose of tapas. Everything was delicious. I highly recommend. The cocktails and wine were wonderful too. We had theatre tickets. Everything was served promptly and staff were amazingly efficient. We weren’t rushed and we had time to spare. Thank you.

    Four of us each ordered the “Feed Me” menu at a total of $260. What a rip off for 5 share plates and two slices of tart that the four of us had to share. The little amount of food that arrived wouldn’t rock your world either. Squished into a tiny booth suitable for two and we still had to yell at each other to be heard over the racket. Only good thing we’re the wait staff who I feel sorry for. Would not recommend.
