Quiet on a Tuesday evening. Beer on tap variable. Tapas were very good. Best was the excellent Jamon Iberico platter but the chorizo, patatas bravas, calamari and croquetas were also very tasty.

Met my wife that night in the bar across the road from here so was eyeing it off while sipping my wine and waiting. We both are into tapas and Spanish wines so what else could we do.
Excellent choice as it turned out. Really good staff, the food was excellent and the wines matched the whole vibe of the thing. Service was that good kind that advised you that you might have ordered too much in your enthusiasm and desire to taste everything. A really nice place with that sort of eating at high tables thing with lower ones too if that is what you want. Looks like it's in the only back alley in Perth so has a Melbourne feel to it. A really good night out if you like the idea of nice wine and smaller dishes, pity one can't fit it all in.
Will go back there if I ever grace the streets of Perth again

My colleagues and I booked for a group of 16 three weeks before we went for lunch. We were required to advise our meal selections with a weeks notice and therefore had expected everything to go like clockwork.

Unfortunately it did not.

Firstly when we arrived we were told one of the main accompaniments to many of the meals (black rice) would not be ready for 35 mins - even though they had had a weeks notice. So we had to replace with salad or beans.

Secondly, the meals were served completely separately. The first three people had already finished their meal before the second set of three people were served.

Finally, the meals were really small portions. The burger actually looked like a slider. There was one but looked like there should have been three....

The only redeeming feature was that the food was at least actually quite tasty.

They definitely can't cope with large groups so if that's your plan, think again.

Hope that helps someone decide if this place is right for you.

I went for lunch on a Friday afternoon with some workmates and had a great time. The bar has a really nice atmosphere and it ended up being surprisingly cheap. I had a steak ($12), garden salad ($3), a couple of beers ($8.50 each) and a churro ($3). Not bad for under $40!

We were just here for drinks not food. They have a modest but varied cocktail menu and lots of wine and beer to choose from. They really hit that small bar sweet spot where the atmosphere is great and the cocktails are interesting. We tried a few different drinks and loved them all. The service was laidback and friendly. A great place for some late night drinks.
