Wonderful evening spent with a girlfriend - impromptu when we were looking for Tapas within walking distance to our hotel - Sydney Hyatt.
Up the stairs from a so... so... entrance, lies MAGIC!
We had the most amazing tapas, sangria and entertainment all under candlelight with atmosphere conducive to cementing a good friendships.
Great entertainment with wonderful traditional Spanish dancers, handsome waiters, and an authentic Spanish experience in Sydney without flying to Barcelona (where we had both been!)
Great interaction with the patrons was ensured when I (and other guests) was dragged up to dance with the girls.
Will ensure I revisit when back in Sydney.
We were a table of two, but there were a few large groups who seemed to be looked after really well.

First impression of the down stairs bar leaves a lot to be left desired from but, follow the stairs infront of you and your taken to the quaint restaurant, from what I can gather is called "Iberico".
The room it's self has an emense amount of character, accompanied with a mix of traditional and new age Spanish music.
A good selection of medium to top shelf alcohols, incl. a nice selection of Spanish wines. Could improve on the soft drink selection but hey, it's not ur every day restaurant.
Excellent service, the young bartender let us try an array of wines and was VERY patient!
Would strongly recommend for anyone chasing something a little bit "different"!

We ate lunch on a Sunday Special and had mixed feeling about our meal and the venue.
Very strange sensation walking into this place as it is very tired, old and not so clean. Must have been a site in its heyday though!
When we arrived upstairs the place was near empty but quickly filled with Spanish families who looked like regulars which gave the place a nice atmosphere.
The Paella was not great nor a dry overpriced pork dish but the Tapas meatballs and prawns were good as of course was the Sangria.

Went on a weeknight when all Tapas dishes were $10 which was great value and the tapas were pretty nice. Had garlic prawns, eggplant, lamb rack all good.

Ordered one person chicken/chorizo paella to share with tapas. Unfortunately this was not of the same quality as the tapas - quite salty and oily and didn't have that nice crust on the bottom. Was a very large portion supposed to be for one person but the two of us couldn't finish but porbably wasn't nice enough for us to finish it anyway.

I think there should be something between Average and Very Good as that is how I would rate the Spanish Club Restaurant.
We tried the lunch menu and the food was tasty and fresh and the service ok, but the place is a little worn. The windows were badly in need of a clean and the men's toilets, well they should have been locked and a sign saying " do not enter" nailed to the door. Very off-putting. So the best we can do is "Good" and that is for the food.
