Subsolo Restaurant

161 King Street Sydney

Very cool spanish tapas & wine bar.

Drinks are a must have.

Sangria. This was quite strong for a sangria.

Manzanilla Martini:


1) Trio of Garlic Mushrooms. I loved this! It has an exotic mix of mushrooms. yum.

2) Paprika Salt & Pepper Squid with Saffron Mayonnaise. A bit too oily.

3) Chicken Chorizos

4) Spanish Meatballs filled with cheese


For mains we actually ordered the rump skewers and the chicken skewers or espetadas but they were so good that alas..I only remembered to take a photo after our group had demolished the food. The skewers actually come with 3 sides- potato bravavas, side salad and vegetables. One skewer is easily enough for 2 people to share.

The chicken skewer or espedata was definitely the highlight of the meal. It was tender, juicy, flavoursome and lovingly charcoaled.

  1. Haven't visited here for a while but the food was great way back when. Love the male toilets too. :-)

  2. I've booked a table for this weekend with a group of girlfriends. Just curious to know, are the photos of the meatballs tapas or entree size? We don't want to over order!

  3. Hi there! The tapas are entree size :) Sorry for the late reply. I hope you enjoyed Subsolo
