This restaurant offers tapas and set menus. We swapped out the beef serloin on menu 2 for beef cheeks. Booked ahead but it was a quiet night. Verandah and indoor dining. No dogs.

Great range and quality tapas. Brodie makes a sensational Margarita (I've been craving them since) and provided us the best service. We'll definitely be back to visit next time we're in the Hunter.

This is a delightful place to while away a lazy afternoon. The tapas is wonderful, prices give value for money, service is good and the wine list varied.
