Visited on a Saturday with a few friends for birthday drinks and dinner. Cocktail menu was fantastic, massive variety and didn’t take too long to come out. Service was also great. Food was alright, nothing special. Would visit again for the drinks!

Atmosphere and service good but food very average, bordering on fast food. The tapas service wasn’t paced either - just dumped all 5 courses on the table at once. Good place for a first drink and light snack then head somewhere else for dinner.

Bar tender was extremely rude. Had to walk out and not order a thing due to the poor service and attitude of the bar tender! Won't be coming back!

Fabulous tapas bar with great ambience! Great place to chill out and enjoy a cocktail and the tapas are awesome! Highly recommend the duck pancakes, tempura prawns, prawn and scallop dumplings and soft shell crab! Pizzas and sliders also very good! Staff attentive and friendly!

Bad food (that made me sick), service was terrible (food brought to the table over a 10 minute period) and the staffs attitude was appalling. Don't waste your time!

Came here quite early in the night to have dinner. It was pretty empty inside so we went up to the bar and asked for a table. We were taken to a table and given menus, told that someone would come to take our order....More

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small
