This place was busy on a week night! That says it all. Our group shared several tapa plates which were all divine! The service was fabulous and they were more than too pleased to recommend dishes and advise us on how many we needed. A lovely warm atmosphere.

Great location in what looks like an old bank building this place has high quality food at very reasonable prices. We had a very tasty pizza to share with a nice tomato salad. They also have a very good wine selection and their cocktails were very popular.

This is a fabulous place. There is a great energy with the staff and they clearly enjoy what they do. It has a great atmosphere. The food was fantastic, more 'tapas' style - the salami pizza was amazingly good and the Korean BBQ tacos were outstanding.

Every time I come to Tamworth I always come here - so I brought my girlfriend up from Sydney and guess what - she got to experience what I’m lucky to get every few months.
The staff are awesome and when I come up by myself they are extremely friendly . Always make me feel welcome which is important to a person by themselves.
We had the carpaccio, dumplings, tacos and the pork pizza. All were great but the carpaccio is exceptional.

I will be back to Tamworth soon and will definitely be back.
