    First time returning after Covid, weren't sure what to expect and pleasantly surprised. We were regulars prior and always loved the food, service and atmosphere. Everything was great, loved the Galecian octopus dish but less potatoes more octopus would have been outstanding. Overall excellent experience and we will be back!

    1000/10 - went for a GNO and we opted for the sangria and set menu. Absolutely everything on the menu was outstanding. Specifically the croquettes, the beef cheek, the salad, and the chorizo (I could have easily named every single thing!) The Eton mess was absolutely devine. We ended with an espresso martini and would definitely recommend that, too. Can’t wait to go back!

    I love this restaurant, this was my third time. Excellent spot at Barangaroo, service is always excellent with knowledgeable and friendly staff have had both set menus on all three occasions and they have been fresh, flavoursome, good size portions and not hurried. The wine list is extensive and ever changing and the Spanish gins are a must, I cannot fault this place!

    The service was top notch, our waitress recommended the perfect drinks to get us started and when it came time to order food she recommended the perfect combination of starters to share. The sommelier also recommended the perfect wine to compliment the food. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice, plenty of energy but still quiet enough to be able to have a conversation without having to yell. Last but not least though, the food is spectacular, every dish had the most amazing flavours and everything was served at the right time and perfectly cooked.

    The restaurant has several set menu and the waiter recommend highly , but we did not choose that since we want some diversify and try more. We ordered fish of the day, flatbread. beef and octopus , we like the bread and octopus also the fish. However the side (mushroom and potato are not that impressive). They have lot of choices for drink, the wine waiter recommended is pretty nice.

    Great wine selection, but it will take you 10 minutes to find which one. I wanted an Albariño and the waiter gave us a very good recommendation. Great food and brings back memories of Spain. Loved the beef backstrap, in fact loved it all. Will be back.

    Despite the fact that your food is designed to share, you never 'dictate' your customers how to consume it! While your waiter's attitude is more than enough to ruin your customers' evening. My guests and I initially wanted to have our own dishes and we didn't care when they come out as we're more after to catching up, but that's exactly what our waiter 'dictated' us to do. At that point, his attitude already marred our overall experience. Then I wanted to keep one menu as I might want to order one more particular dish later. That waiter simply said he’ll give us the menu later for dessert as he was clenching them, and reminding me again that the dish I’m keen to order later is also for 'sharing'. I haven’t seen my friends for ages and so I tried to ignore that inane experience with that waiter, but never would I ever recommend this place to anyone!

    Great service - very attentive. Food was delicious but not cheap. $180 (including tip) for two people so be prepared to spend a little bit! We had leftover potatoes but they threw them in the bin instead of giving us a doggy bag. All in all though, lovely restraint with helpful waitstaff and everything tasted delicious - good serving sizes too.

    Great atmosphere but service wasn’t great, perhaps it’s the large crowd and the service was slow. Each waiter provided different menu descriptions and blamed each other, we had to ask for the same drink 5 times, there wasn’t enough time for desserts.

    This was our 2nd visit and the food and service were exceptional again. Our friends from Tasmania and Bowen Mountain were impressed. We booked for 12 noon and left after 4pm. Even after we paid the bill, staff were still attentive, filling our water glasses, and did not push us to leave.
