Barriga llena, Corazón contento
Spanish food the way it was meant to be. Not complicated. Not pretentious. Just beautiful, authentic Mediterranean food. Experience our food for yourself at any of our iconic Melbourne restaurant locations. South Melbourne Market, Bourke Street, and the Queen Victoria Market.
BEHIND THE KITCHEN
Rich in culture, our international chefs are inspired by their heritage as they bring a touch of Spain to every dish.
What began as a passion for Spanish cuisine soon evolved into a lifelong pursuit of the perfect paella. Our award-winning big pan paella is a recipe centuries in the making, inspired by the masters themselves. Since opening our first location 12 years ago our paella has become as iconic as the South Melbourne Markets themselves. There’s something magical about sitting on the sidelines, outside of Melbourne’s rush, relaxing with a plate of joyful flavours as the world goes by. So put your feet up, relax with your wine of choice and let our world-class chefs bring Spain to you.
