Personally for the price I feel the portion sizes are very small but the tastes are just amazing. The service was a little uncoordinated but no harm as all the food came on time :)... More

Williamstown is just a drive across the Westgate Bridge from the city, so easy to get to for us. But we seldom go there. The incentive to try El Burro came via a voucher we bought, that gave us a selection of small tapas dishes, plus a paella and sangria for a very affordable amount. And we avoided parking fees...

The best and cheapest way to sample various tapas, Paella and Sangria at El Burro.The Paella was one of the best I have ever eaten ! Lots of seafood, meat and flavour. Dessert and coffee was not included in the meal deal so... More

Visited El Burro on a very pleasant Sunday afternoon. Whilst it was VERY busy ( and as a result, quite noisy) the food was great. Picked a selection of tapas together with a nice Shiraz. The menu contained a good variety of single and group shares. Recommend a visit, be aware that if busy the noise reflection makes it quite... More
