This is a trendy tapas spot situated in Melville, Johannesburg.
The fancier sister spot to its big brother Hell’s Kitchen, this is a beautiful old restaurant stunningly decorated to represent an old school gentleman’s bar. Tapas are really well priced and delicious, and they offer some great cocktail specials to wind down the week. Love this spot
As someone who is not easily impressed, i was pleasently suprised by this new restaurant. After sundowners with friends at a nearby bar, we headed to this little known establishment for some food. As we were a fairly big group we just ordered about 15 tapas to share.
From the first bite to the last EVERYTHING was delicious. From the artichoke hearts to the bunny chow (I ended up asking for seconds of this) to even the tofu (did I mention I HATE tofu) the food was a treat. It was a bit quite for a Friday night but we didn’t need much as were enjoying ourselves. If you are looking for some goooooood tapas I’d suggest trying this place out. Honestly still day dreaming about the food and will probably keep going every week from now on.
Arrived at restaurant only to find they did not have my reservation but the head chef, Duncan, was quick to jump in and assist us. Due to a party we had to sit out in the cold, but the manager and waitre tried their best to make the rest of our evening enjoyable, which they did. The cocktails were great (incl the copious amounts of hell fire). The tapas were all delicious, well seasoned and flavoursome. Front of house were personable though a bit ditzy at times. Overall it was a good experience and we will definitely be back.
