This place has a great atmosphere and perfect for groups. Love every dish and the extensive bar options. The low lighting and music just adds to the personality of this spot.

Had the olives and almonds to start which was generous. The Paella was pretty good, small and maybe needed chicken with the seafood which is how we make it but nearly there. Cocktail was yummy too. It was lunchtime so not busy which was good.

We really enjoyed our visit to Subsolo. A great venue and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. We really enjoyed our meals, they were delicious and innovativaly presented, but not the overtly complicated or pointless presentation some places seem impelled to serve.

Invited for lunch. Love Spanish tapas. This was beyond expectation. Kept asking why I hadn’t bothered to go before. Service was perfection. Food delicious and wine list extensive. Next move will be dinner for a group of close friends. Sooner than later. Recommend this to...More

How is it that Subsolo has been there for 10 years and we just found out about it? It is in the basement, a large space and with plenty of seats. It does not feel crowded. We ate a variety of dishes from the tapas...More

We had one of the set menus which worked really well. All the courses were flavoursome and really enjoyable. The Spanish meatballs were a favourite and the beef on the stick was good. The churros were probably the best I’ve had outside of Spain. The...More

This a good place to try Tapas. They are delicious. Ambiance and service is also great. I suggest order many Tapas and try them..each got different flavor and character.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
