Bocados is as "Spanish" as one can expect in Australia. The tapas and the wines were very good and the atmosphere, once the crowd had dissipated a bit, was excellent. The service was a little hit and miss at first, but improved with fewer customers...More

We made reservations (recommended) and got a little tiny table by the window. We started with bread rubbed with garlic, olives, and the chicharron appetizer. The chicharron was the standout... three large portions of pork belly complemented by chimichurri. The pork belly was so tender...More

From the minute we arrived we were attentively looked after. Great selection for a lunch menu so we chose several things to share. The white Spanish wine was delicious and reasonably priced. Recommended

Took my boss from Sydney out for dinner here. Had the $49 banquet for 4 people. Food and service were both excellent. Highly recommended.

You can't go past this restaurant for great food. Family friendly. Reasonably priced. It's a bit stuffy inside and they seem to be unable to get the temperature right. This was my second visit and it was the same both times. Staff lovely.
