We had the best dinner here last night. Perfect portions, all amazingly delicious & the cocktails were to die for. The service was awesome. All of the dishes were really tasty with the potatoes being a highlight. We wish we had discovered this place earlier on in our trip as this would no doubt be a regular for us. Our... More

I booked a table in advance of our Easter break on the back of great reviews. We weren't disappointed! Staff very friendly and knowledgable. The tapas arrived in just the right order - I think we ordered one of everything and the kitchen knew exactly how it should be served. Food was quite extraordinary - everyone enjoyed from kids to...

Second visit and still good. The food is base on Spanish tapas and incorporates NZ produce. Excellent choices and good proportions on plates.

We went with a few friends (about 9 of us total) and they recommended doing a set menu/chefs choices and we were not disappointed!! The food just kept coming and it was all incredible!! I've forgotten the price per head (too many delicious cocktails!!!!) but it was super reasonable for the sheer amount of food we were given. Worked out... More

We loved the food but the service was a bit disappointing... such a difference from our last visit which was perfect! The popularity of this place may be making it difficult for staff to keep up. Our reserved table was not available when we arrive and then they "encouraged" us to wait at another restaurant that they own down the... More

We shared 4 plates (they are designed to share) which were great value and even better taste. Calamari, jerk chicken, beetroot ricotta, and beef madallions. All amazing. Then the special Northern Canadian crumble for desert was memorable. The service was warm yet professional and knowledgeable. One heads up if you are keeping an eye on your spending, if you are...

We were recommended by friends to go to La Rumbla. It certainly didn't disappoint. Great vibe or atmosphere on arrival. The Tapas menue looked extensive, so it was easier to leave out a dish than choose from 12 preferred orders. Our magnificent waitress Meg, not only helped with the sensational food but knew a lot about the extensive wine list.... More

Great food and service. Awesome staff, super friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere. A tad hard to find the place but once we were here it was well worth the search.
