    A hidden gem in Mt Barker with outstanding food and atmosphere! The tapas which comes out of the small kitchen in a cosy setting is outstanding. This was the second visit for two of us from down the hill, and we'll be back!

    As always the food was absolutely delicious. Our Mocktails were unique & sophisticated, and didn’t taste like upgraded sweet fizzy. Our food came out quickly and service was attentive and friendly. We took the opportunity of tag us Tuesday and saved on our bill. Thanks for a lovely evening

    HMbL's food is undeniably amazing, boasting rich flavors and quality ingredients. However, the pricing could use some adjustment for portion sizes, making it more accessible. Despite this, the overall dining experience is worthwhile for those seeking top-notch culinary delights, albeit at a slightly steeper cost.

    I didn’t love our experience. Each plate of food was rushed out on top of each other with little opportunity to enjoy the meal. Within an hour of arriving we were being advised our table would be required for another guest. There were other couples enjoying a much more leisurely meal. I feel very disappointed that I went out of my way to select a venue which did not close at 9 but ended up being rushed through within 70 minutes. We were offered the garden but it felt very awkward to move tables. For the price of $170 we didn’t get much time to enjoy our meal.

    This place is absolutely fantastic! It's a cozy gem in Mount Barker, and the only thing it needs is more space to expand. Imagine a lovely little tapas bar, just what Mount Barker was missing, where you can relax with a tasty cocktail and some seriously delicious food. The service is top-notch – the staff is super friendly and makes you feel right at home. Now, let's talk about the food – it's like a flavor explosion in your mouth. We tried five different tapas plates, and each one was incredible. The food is packed with flavor and practically melts in your mouth. They also present it beautifully. The drinks menu is great, with awesome cocktails, beer, and wine options, and some tasty non-alcoholic choices. They even made me an Amaretto Sour, even though it wasn't on the menu, and it was amazing. We'll definitely be coming back, and we'll be telling all our friends about this place. Whether it's a romantic date, a dinner with friends, or a spot to show off to visiting family and friends in the hills, this tapas bar is a must-visit.
