Great Spanish restaurant serving inventive and tasty tapas in a super cool setting. The hero dish for me was the anchoa – anchovy served on crouton with cold tomato sorbet. It was like a party in my mouth! The service is friendly and efficient. Great modern decor, light and airy space and buzzy atmosphere. – barbrasdad

TrueLocal - Robert Burns Hotel: Tapas in Melbourne

Robert Burns Hotel


All right, so it might not be the most Spanish-sounding establishment in the world, but give the poor guys a chance, at least. A chap called Urbano Gutierrez (that’s more like it) introduced the exciting world of Spanish cuisine to this Scottish-Aussie pub back in 1983, and they haven’t looked back since. If you’re after delectable tapas with drinks a-flowin’, you’ve hit the jackpot. Read more

Amazing Spanish food and lovely staff members! I attended one of their monthly ‘Dine the Spanish Regions’ dinners and it was one of the best things I’d been to. 4 courses matched with wines, all based on a region of Spain. Will be back! – Meaghan85
