Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stumbled across this place and were lucky enough to get a table for lunch. They were happy to provide wine tasting to help us decide on a bottle and we settled on a recently released bottle of ‘the cream’ which was delicious and paired...nicely with the beautiful tapas.More

I have always enjoyed 1st Drop wines especially Mothers Milk shiraz and visiting this refreshing, slightly quirky place is worth the effort. The fellow behind the counter was very friendly and personable and helpful. I bought a well priced magnum of Mothers Milk for only...$60 - a bargain for this great red!!More

Although the wine are good, they have to step up their food to match the wine quality! Prices of the food are ridiculous you cannot pay 10$ ( food cost around 2$) for some fries with cocktail sauce come on! Arancini: Where was the rice?...You could not see it and they were dropped on a “out of the bottle” Mayo with a drizzle of honey that didn’t pair at all with the rest of the ingredients, price 14$ (4balls) Have a wine tasting eat somewhere else!More

This was the best tapas we have had in Australia and as a tapas fan that is saying something. The jamon and sopressa were thinly sliced and delicious. The patetas bravas was just like it is made in Spain and the calamari was light and...crisp. Highly recommended!More

Loved First Drop - the labels on the bottles of wine are so entertaining and I especially like the quirk factor selling Mother's Milk in ceramic milk bottles! I haven't tried the tapas but want to as it all sounds delicious.
