    Food was great. Reminiscent of our times spent in San Sabastien Pintxo bars. Service was polite, helpful and attentive.

    Serving food services were too slow and was hugely disappointed as it wasn’t like that last time visitings. Some part of menu came after we finish the other portion, we couldn’t enjoy the whole as one menu. But they were too quick to get another menu order and clean up my table!!

    A wonderful, classy restaurant that had a dish with octopus and potatoes that made me gasp at how easily my fork slid into the tender meat. Would definitely go here again for a special occasion.

    We had a pre-show dinner there. Their food is very delicious and service is good. Just a bit on the expensive side

    I reserved a table for 2 not knowing the one I booked is at blight and not at Bangaroo, however I mention in my booking I want sea view ocean. It was excellent customer service that Tapavino staff called me and move my reservation to Bangaro

    What a great experience. We had the $95 set menu which was fabulous. Every course was amazing. The service was exceptional and the extensive wine list is hard to believe. We had great service from all 3 people looking after us. Probably one of the best meals & experiences I have had in a very long time.

    One of the best steaks we have ever had! The quality of the food is really what you pay for- superb.

    Too expensive for the portions size. Drinks are very expensive filled with ice. Service was bad. They used to explain the menu and come around to check previously. No one did this time around.

    The food was quite expensive for the serving size. The waitress attending us was not very attentive. The extended list of wines was mind-blowing, and the serving for a glass of pina sour was less than standard. I would not pay full price for having my meal here in the future. With the 30% off deal, it was a little more reasonable.

    Food is yummy, but the meat near the bones of lamb cutlets are under cooked, I can see they are raw.

    Because we booked via Fork we were allocated a table near the pass, even though there were many free tables on the balcony all night.... poor form. The food was good.
