Spanish/South American themed restaurants in Australia can often be hit and miss in my experience but Bocados provided me and my friend with a great dining experience. Excellent food and a variety, an ambience and fit out that made you feel you were in another (Spanish) country backed up by attentive, friendly service delivered by lovely ladies with Spanish speaking...

We were lucky and managed to get a walk-in table for 4. Knew nothing about the place - but were blown away by the food - can highly recommend the Beef cheeks. Staff very helpful in explaining dishes and helping with our selection. Dessert did not disappoint - go the Churros!

We went there while visiting Newcastle, on the strength of the TripAdvisor ratings and commentary and were not disappointed. Shared the superb bbq squid and the very good pork. Washed it down with some red wine. Service was consistently attentive and friendly. Will go there again for sure. Liked it quite a bit. Reservation seems to be a must.

Right in the centre of Newcastle, with specific sitting times, fantastic food and atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit for as a date or with friends. The potatoes were the best! But there were many runner ups that were close behind...

My wife and I have dined at Bocado's a few times now and we keep coming back. It has a funky vibe and the food is fresh and delicious. Staff are friendly and efficient and the place is always buzzing. The beef cheeks melt in your mouth! Sensational!

Beautiful food and wine, extremely busy, so a booking a must. Acoustics could of been better, but service was excellent, all in all a great night.

This restaurant was recommended as a great place to meet up for a Spanish meal while in Newcastle with family. We are regular travellers to Spain, this restaurant was very authentic, great food and great service. We are pleased we booked on the Sunday evening.

I have been here twice now and both times I was blown away by the food. They serve tapas so you have a chance to try everything and you will want to try everything because I don't think there is a bad thing on the menu. Service was amazing and I will keep going back
