We discovered this restaurant while walking around Melbourne, and it was like a hidden place... but surprisingly good! Great food and typical Spanish dishes even though the starters are quite small and a bit expensive. The paella is delicious!!!

Yes a hidden gem and all the reviews are pretty right. Tucked away in one of Melbourn's "Lanes", a quaint and cosy Tapas bar with a cherpy atmosphere. The food flavours definitely packed a punch but so did the cost. While Not typically expensive for...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
