More about El Bulli, Surry Hills

One of Sydney’s most well-known Spanish restaurants, El Bulli on Surry Hills’ Elizabeth Street has become famous for its friendly service, exquisite Spanish cuisine, live entertainment events, and rustic setting. Featuring exposed brick walls, wooden tables, candles and dim lighting, the restaurant feels sultry and romantic, making it an ideal location for a night of elegance. The beverage menu only adds to this feeling, with a large selection of some of the best red wine available in Sydney, as well as several varieties of delicious homemade sangria.

While drinking (or perhaps guzzling) your beverage of choice, you’re encouraged to start with a number of nibbles like pan con tomate (toasted ciabatta rubbed with garlic, tomato and sea salt), almendras tostadas (toasted seasoned almonds) and esparragos con jamon (asparagus spears wrapped in Iberico ham with balsamic glaze). Like your food on a stick? Then make sure to try the pinchitos de pollo, skewered chicken that’s been slowly marinated in a savoury chimichurri sauce, topped with fresh lemon. For big appetites, we recommend mains like the classic Spanish paella, which features seafood, chicken and chorizo. Make a reservation for an incredible Spanish dining experience in the heart of Sydney’s Surry Hills.

I've been to El Bulli multiple times, including my birthday and am never disappointed. Definitely the best Spanish food in Sydney and the nicest waitresses. Food comes out almost immediately. If you are ordering the paella, they say the waiting time is about 45 minutes, but it usually comes within the half hour. I would order this first thing if you are planning on the paella, even before deciding on the rest of the your meals.

Overall excellent, only negative points for music from band being way too loud for a restaurant, We had to shout across the table to be able to have a converstion, most the time unable to even converse with the person directly oppositte seated. The King Prawns in the Paella tasted extremely strong and very dry and chewy, as though they were quite old and had been defrosted. Same with the BBQ baby Octopus. (Both amongst my favourite all time dishes) All other meals were fantastic, quickly served, excellent table staff, very friendly, food was great, drinks were very well made, though a little on the high end price wise. Overall we had a fantastic time, with great service and excellent food, will be happilly returning soon. :)

Loved the food at El Bulli ! It was a Sunday night so it wasn't too busy but with just the right amount of people. It was also paella night which was also great. And yay for Sangrias ! The staff were also really helpful with letting us know how big portions were and their recommendations.

My friends and I decided to try El Bulli as we'd heard great things- we were not disappointed! The service was great and the food, delicious. Great to hear and see a live music act being employed to entertain us as we ate- definitely helped build the atmosphere! Would definitely go back!

We had a great night, but we were seated right next to the band, so it was very difficult to talk to eachother, and I was facing the band so I had a spotlight directly in my eye all night! After dinner we moved to the back room and were much more comfortable there. Also we ordered paella but unfortunately it was not great, perhaps it had been kept warm while we finished tapas? We clearly ordered way too many tapas and did not have enough room left to eat the paella. We had to ask for fresh plates for the paella too, which took a while to come. Anyway we will know better next time! Not too many tapas, and ask for a table further away from the band.
