Given the current climate surrounding COVID-19, many authorities are placing restrictions on social gatherings. In the best interest of everyone’s safety, we are continuously updating the availability of our partner restaurants to reflect these measures. We encourage people to still support the restaurant industry in other ways.Learn how
Driving a drove of Andalusian donkeys fully-laden with some of Melbourne’s best tapas into the heart of the unforgiving Williamstown restaurant landscape, El Burro is a tapas bar worth whinnying about. A cosy restaurant and bar with unadorned wooden tables and chairs arrayed around a warm and inviting interior that opens out into an alfresco dining area and beer garden, El Burro is a very hot ticket along the cafe-packed length of Nelson Place. On Mondays El Burro offers every plate of tapas for just a tenner, making it an ideal off-peak time to take in traditional vieras – scallops and chorizo with caramelised apple and lemon – or the very popular cerdo – confit pork belly and crackling with pear chutney. But there’s far more on offer besides, with appetizers and sides, larger share plates, pizza-like topped Spanish flatbreads, big paella ($20 on Wednesdays) and desserts (churros!) jostling for your attention.

We had the tapas for 2, it was absolutely delicious! My only complaint was that the food came out too fast. 2-3 dishes at a time would be better.
This is the 4th or 5th time I have been there and wont be the last - the food never disappoints and the services is fantastic!
