I only had a short stay in Ballarat last summer and had to go to this place twice because it’s so good. The food was amazing! It’s very popular too. Reservations are technically necessary if you want a table for dinner. Tbh I was not...very impressed by the paella but the lamb skewers and the slow cooked beef cheek were absolutely delicious! Food is a bit on the pricey side but totally worth it.More

Excellent meal with very good service. Spanish wines and beers available. I am a celiac and had many suitable dishes to choose.

We were able to make a last minute booking for 2 couples on a very busy Sat night. Unfortunately they were short on staff due to them having Covid, so it was a bit slow to get drinks, food etc. But the place is very...cosy and the food was great.More

Been to this Restaurant several times, loved it. Went on Tuesday night. It was terrible. The service was terrible the food was not up to its usual standard. Very bland. Drink service was slow and it was not very busy. I wonder if it has...changed hands. I do not normally write bad reviews but I feel that the owner should be made aware that the standard of their staff was appalling and food very disappointing. It is such a shame as it was a great place to go. Not for me anymore.More

Best restaurant in Ballarat! I highly recommend Meat platter and pil-pil prawns! It's a must visit if you like Spanish food.

A very casual laid-back venue. Were able to fit us in on a very busy night. Lovely food and good wine selection.

Found this terrific restaurant when we were in Ballarat last year and were looking forward to going back. Even better second time. Great atmosphere (you could be in Barcelona), terrific service, delicious food and some really good Spanish wines (try the Albarino). Standout dishes were...the chorizo in red wine, twice cooked potatoes, ham croquettes and Spanish meatballs -but it was all good. Ballarat locals love it so be sure to book in advance.More
