Our party of 8 shared a mixture of tapas followed by a main each. Good variety of meat, seafood and vegetarian options. My main of snapper with eggplant and tomato ratatouille was good. Central location under the GPO in Martin place. Venue easily accommodates larger groups.

We went here because of the TripAdvisor reviews and oh boy ! We weren't let down. Loved the food !! Ordered 4 tapas and shared between two. It was amazing. Ordered the pan fried scallops, Gambas al ajillo, slow cooked beef cheeks and grilled beef meatballs. Worth every dollar. The lady attending was very courteous and helpful. Great seating space...

What else can I say but the food, wine and service were excellent. Surprising to find such good quality food and service in Sydney. Everything tasted fresh and full of flavour and the service was always present but unobtrusive.

As a change from the Westin hotel venues, I tries Postales last week. Great inexpensive tapas, the best quality ham especially the iberico, yummy fresh bread olives etc. Then a very good veal main with lashings of Spanish wine. the attentive staff always present but not obtrusive. All first rate. I did ask for a brighter table to read being... More

Caught up with a friend here recently for a long overdue catchup over wine and tapas. No pressure from staff to move along which I am now finding unusual in many Sydney restaurants. Great food, great service and great atmosphere - centrally located underneath 1 Martin Place.

The location is good and the restaurant is quite and classy. The service staff are attentive but may be too formal for young people. It is good for business dinner though. The food are up to the standard.

We wanted a nice quiet restaurant of high quality to welcome one of our professional colleagues attending Sydney on a business trip. We needed to have dinner on a Monday evening. Postalise satisfied this requirement really well - there were few other diners and the food was excellent. We ate Tapas and there was plenty for all and the most... More

Took three work colleagues who are from a regional area out to enjoy an authentic tapas experience and this Postales absolutely nailed it. We sampled 12 dishes, way more than we needed but still exellent. 11 of the items were truly amazing with one just being a little bland but that could be my subjective assessment and not a reflection...

Very attentive - if somewhat disengaged service staff. The food was good, but terribly long between courses. Was the wait worth it? Yes. Sort of. Would I recommend this to others? Well... Yes, for the overall quality. No if you are looking for premium quality & a luxury setting.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
