The Paella is the must try dish. But don't have any tapas beforehand unless you are a big eater. The service was great and the food is amazing, fresh and full of flavour.

A very busy restaurant with great vibes - extremely busy over pre Christmas due staff parties and friends get togethers. As usual the service and quality of food never falters

Plenty of options to choose from here. You can each pick dishes you like, or settle on a half a dozen to share (for three or four people). Can cater for small groups, or functions. Plenty of wines to choose from, and the staff were quite attentive.

We enjoyed a great night out with friends at this lovely restaurant. The Spanish waiter was very helpful with the menu as well as comments about Spain! All eight of our friends enjoyed the varied menu, a great night out!

We were visiting Geelong for a day and stayed at the Novotel, walked past this restaurant around dinner time and decided to give it a go. We ordered 6 dishes, as we would normally do in Melbourne, mentally preparing for smaller dish sizes as per Melbourne tapas places. What came out totally blew us away. Each dish was a full... More

The limited selection of tapas failed to showcase Spain's classic, bold flavours that had my tastebuds partying endlessly during a recent trip to Barcelona. No tortilla, no cured meat, no olives (not even as a friendly accompaniment), limited seafood options with no baklava to be seen. And no pisto to soak my fresh bread in- actually our table did not...

Must try the cheese croquettes, eggplant fritters and calamari. Mouth watering. Great prices and 2 - 3 Tapas per person suits. They also ofer a swt menu option which is a tapas, main meal and I think a desert. Red and white Sangria is delicious although I do prefer the red as its not as sweet.

A busy Saturday and the place was packed. Recommend booking. Service very good, food really tasty and different. Can tend to pricey but worth it. Jug of Sangria good value. Will be back for more!
