Another outing with some fellow bloggers@EtailQueen, @Helen__H ,@autumn_castle ,@Happy_E_After , @GiveMeBows and @reeseatomic. This time we headed to Barrafina, a Spanish Tapas Bar located on 2 Bligh Street.
If you’re a Sydney Sider, you may also be wondering why would such a restaurant pop up in the heart of financial district.
But like they say, don’t dis it till you’ve tried it.
Being a relatively new restaurant, I was very impressed with the quality of the food.
Every dish was absolutely delicious and the seating arrangement of the restaurant is roomy but yet cosy enough for larger crowds. May I also make a mention that the Sangria’s were superb.
My fav dishes were the perfect lightly crumbed croquettes, the refreshing ceviche served with the right balance of flavours from the lime, mint, avocado and the snapper and of course the dessert – the chocolate fondant with ice cream. Warm fluffy chocolate and ice cream, need I say anymore?
On the flip side however, we had a consensus that the service needed a little improvement, not that the service was bad but just needed to be a little more attentive.
Example great service:
Very pleased that a custom set menu was put together to accommodate the ideal cost of our meal and in addition we received a discount price on the Sangrias. We were able to split the bill and pay with separate credit cards (oh i love this! how convenient is it!!)
Example of a recommended improvement:
We had to call the waiter a few times as a reminder that we were waiting for a Sangria. We had to remind the waiter that we wanted to order our dessert. A couple of the Sangria’s were served without ice.
No deal breakers and we still had a lovely night filled with full of laughter and joy (thanks for an awesome night girls!). I will be looking forward to coming back again and hopefully to try out the other dishes on the Tapas menu.
