the food here is great, lots of great options for tapas. The atmosphere is warm and cosy. The service can be a bit slow (we were here on a busy night though) but overall the experience was good. The only thing to pick is that staff could be more approachable and friendly.

This attractive bar in the former Pancake Kitchen premise has lead light window, high ceilings and exposed brick work. Although we arrived at 5.30 the place was bustling - many small groups of well dressed older women in particular- & it smelled wonderful. There is a large choice with two differently priced tapas, salads & mains and a vegetarian menu... More

Perfect place to have a bite to eat and a drink before the theatre. Healthy fresh food served with a smile. 10 minutes walk to the Performing Arts Centre. Music was a little bit too loud. Reasonably priced.

Visited here saturday evening. We took 6 different tapas plates which was enough for two hunry people. Pork belly and lamb pasties were best ones.

We try to visit this restaurant every year when we return to Geelong for the Festival of Sail. It is just such good value. The set menu for the table includes three of the Chefs choice of Tapas and your choice of main course. The service is quick and efficient and the food is fresh and delicious. Slow cooked Lamb...

Been here the last couple of years for my birthday. Always good food, great wine selection and magnificent company always helps. We always have a great time and the service is warm/friendly without being too in your face. And the atmosphere is always a buzz. Would recommend.

We were here on New Years Eve and the staff and food were great. We arrived an hour early (because of the NYE fireworks times) and the receptionist was pleasant and fitted us in, despite the heavy bookings. The other staff were also helpful, attentive and prompt. There was a special gluten free menu and we both loved the mussels... More

Dined here with a big group on a Friday night for a Xmas function. We had a set menu which was a selection of tapas followed by a choice of main. I was a bit apprehensive about this as I'm coeliac and vegetarian so thought there would be limited options. The waitress looking after our table was actually wonderful and... More
