My partner and I booked in for our second visit to Cortado and were treated to an excellent meal again. The food is fantastic, the second time my steak was a bit too well cooked for my liking but regardless it was still fantastic. Love the design and lay out and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We shall be visiting again soon.

Revisited this place just around the corner from my brother's house and the atmosphere was welcoming, the wine (especially the Spanish temperanillo) was excellent and my tapas dished were just what the doctor ordered. Our large group was served quickly and efficiently and my nephews in wheelchairs were also made most welcome.

Arrived around 7pm. Resturant was busy. Almost all tables were full. Lucky to have gotten a booking earlier that day. Went and ordered drinks. They were well priced. Then ordered food. Food took a while to arrive. Around 40min. Food was good. We got the 5 tapas for $45. Good choices on menu although would have been nice to include more of a description on the tapas menu. Had to google some of the definitions. Live music arrived at around 8.30. Good beats...

All over a nice night and affordable night. Food plus 3 drinks each came to $90 for the night.

Will probably be back.

Liked.......the atmosphere, great tasting food and the entertainment while we ate.

Could improve menus by giving explanation of titles (South American, etc names) as we had no idea what we were reading. Explanations were available from the waitresses, but when the waitress is at your table it's time to order not decipher the menu.
Dessert was tempting.
