Quietly advertised Flaminco and tapas bar! A surprisingly spacious venue with Flaminco dancing and guitar as their centrepiece. A dark and intimate space to enjoy imported Spanish wine with the simplistic tapas menu. This establishment needs enforcment to the pompous people from front of house...More

Marcela & Juan, the proprietors are naturals at making you feel welcome. The Spanish (Latin America) tapas style menu caters for meat lovers, vegetarians and celiacs! The cocktails are great and depending on which night you go the live music transports you to Spain, Brazil...More

Although we only had time for drinks we loved this little bar and were welcomed very warmly. The happy hour (til 7pm) Margheritas were huge and great value at $12. We'll be back for live music and tapas.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration

Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving

It's a trendy night-time bar with tapas, so not open for lunch. Great fun at night!
