Our Food

A heavy Spanish accent, with Arabic and Turkish influences  - Carmen’s nomadic Mediterranean Gypsy side comes through loud and clear in our food.

The menu – tapas and shareables of different sizes – offers up Southern Mediterranean flavours and textures, for lovers of sunny and colourful tasty food

(as well as separate dedicated menus for Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten Frees).

Opening at 4 pm (with Happy Hour til 6.30), serving up on-point cocktails, tap beers, Spanish & NZ wines and loads of atmosphere!



Explore our eclectic menu of tapas and shareables, influenced by Spanish and Mid-Eastern flavours. Our dishes are tasty and simple, and you are just as welcome for drinks and snacks, or a full 3 course meal!

Mediterranean food can especially be enjoyed in groups – 6 to 26 people is our speciality.

Don't miss our Happy Hour – 4 to 6:30 pm, featuring Happy Cocktails, House Wines, Tap Beers and Spanish Bubbles...

Grab a sunny street table, or inside Carmen’s artsy interior, for an atmosphere you can escape into!
