How is it that Subsolo has been there for 10 years and we just found out about it?

It is in the basement, a large space and with plenty of seats. It does not feel crowded.

We ate a variety of dishes from the tapas menu. The four dishes we selected were very good. We especially liked the stuffed peppers and the pork belly. Four dishes were plenty for us, although others may need another one or two. A randomly selected mid-price Spanish wine was good good company for the food. Four quality tapas dishes and 3 glasses of wine for less than $100 AUD - that is value in my language.

The service was good.

A very good restaurant which will have repeat business from this couple.

We visited Subsola to celebrate my partner's birthday. We had eaten here several times previously & had always had delicious food and good service! We were hugely disappointed this time & will not return or recommend. It was not particularly busy when we arrived, however it was a least 15 minutes before anyone approached us, so we needed to request service. The salt cod croquetas were lovely, the tortilla was awful as were the vegetables with hummus. If you want authentic tapas this is not the place!

I recently visited this restaurant with a work colleague on her recommendation. So glad we did. Located in King St you could actually miss it if you did not know the address. Located downstairs, the restaurant creates an intimate feel before your mouth explodes with the delicious tapas delights. I cannot speak highly enough of the food. There are a variety of tapas dishes. All packed with flavour and beautifully presented. You must try the stuffed Zucchini flowers. Incredible flavour. The service is also top notch. Meals are reasonable priced and there is an excellent wine list and they do cocktails including; Margaritas. If you are in CBD Sydney for work or leisure, just go. You will love it.

We had one of the set menus which worked really well. All the courses were flavoursome and really enjoyable. The Spanish meatballs were a favourite and the beef on the stick was good.

The churros were probably the best I’ve had outside of Spain.

The Spanish wine by the glass were good and went well with our food.

We will definitely back. It has a good vibe and the wait staff are mostly Spanish which adds to it.

This a good place to try Tapas. They are delicious. Ambiance and service is also great. I suggest order many Tapas and try them..each got different flavor and character.
