More about Tapavino, The Rocks

Inspired by the wine bars of Madrid and Barcelona, Tapavino’s owners have successfully created the feeling of a night out in Spain in their comfortable bar and restaurant on Sydney’s Bulletin Place. Boasting the title of the Sydney Morning Herald’s Best Bar With Food Award and runner-up to the Best New Bar Award – within just four months of opening! – this is one incredible establishment that needs to stay on your radar. With over 300 different Spanish wines and 80 sherries, you could say Tapavino in the central business district has quite a collection – book ahead of time and get in on the action.

It’s a good idea to eat when drinking such copious amounts of sherry at Tapavino in Sydney’s central business district, so make sure to mix and match bocados, or bites, including smoked paprika popcorn, warm artichoke & black truffle dip with manchego flatbread, duck liver pate, or the crab, avocado & chilli tostado. Bigger appetites will love the beef short ribs with verde sauce or the spiced lamb shoulder with pomegranate, both hearty dishes that go exceptionally well with one of Tapavina’s Spanish wines. And be sure to end with one of this Spanish restaurant’s incredible desserts – the cinnamon, chocolate & oreo cheesecake is to die for!

Always good ... great food, great wines and great service. The atmosphere is buzzy without being too noisy and the service is professional and friendly.

Lively place, excellent food and great service. We went there on a Friday night and the place was packed. Someone came over to see what we wanted straight away and that level of service continued. Try the blood sausage with honey and roasted walnuts. It was great!

As usual great food and great service They even told us we had ordered too many dishes and advised we remove one. How may restaurants do that?? They were correct. We left pleasantly sated

Great food, good service, very efficient. Great for lunch time if you want to be in and out - only used up 45 minutes of my hour lunch break! That's a nice change for a restaurant.

We sat upstairs so hearing each other wasn't a problem as Id previously heard. The service was great and the food fantastic... The waitress had comprehensive knowledge of food and wine and helped us choose some delicious dishes. 4 was ample and when I go back again I cant go past the Jamon Serrano and Burratta

The perfect pre theatre restaurant. Tapavino has great food, fantastic service and you will be guaranteed to make it out of there on time to see your show at the Opera House.

Hidden gem in Bulletin Place. Service was great, food was amazing, wine choice was fab. Didn't disappoint! I booked ahead but the downstairs bar is pretty funky and casual if you want to try your luck.

Great vibe, super busy and the food and wine were great. Unfortunately the experience was let down by a surly waiter whom made several mistakes but argued with us each time (he brought us the wrong meal twice, one time even trying to tell us the plate of raw beef was salmon tartare!)

This restaurant never fails to disappoint!! You pay slightly more for the dishes but they are a good size and taste very good!! The wine list is far too big but the sommelier is more than happy to help you decide.
