Cuisine: European, Mediterranean, Tapas/Small Plates
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+

Small plates with plenty of heart and views for days; welcome to Astor Tapas Bar and Eatery.

Nestled next to the Princes-Wharf Viaduct, the location couldn’t be more idyllic. Soak in the turquoise water (not literally), watch passers-by and admire the twinkling lights of the city at night whilst you tuck into various tasty Mediterranean dishes.

The tapas menu is perfect in catering to every taste. For the meat-lovers amongst you, choose from venison meatballs and a melt-in-the-mouth lamb rack. Alternatively, enjoy meat-free options like gnocchi covered in fresh tomato sauce or a zingy Greek salad. There are also regular mains like roast chicken and paella to indulge in too.

You might be reading the drinks menu for some time. With an extensive list of wines, champagnes, beers and spirits, you have a range of boozy accompaniments. Mocktails are on offer too - a great option for those who don’t want to wake up to a sore head!

Great spot with direct view to Harbour Bridge.
Service was very friendly and prompt.
Food varied in quality. The gnocchi dish was described as one of the best ever

Great view from our table out to the harbour and the bridge, and lights as it got darker. The decor inside was cool with the wall of plants. Service staff were attentive without being imposing.

Such a great evening out. Food was so good and the service was really impressive. Super friendly staff, really accomodating and ensured that our evening went well. To top it off there was a live guitarist playing all night, was amazing!

Astor Tapa’s is a MUST!!
The owner is this great guy who I would happily take out for a drink. Also he remembered my drink so bonus points to you!

Ordered the Venison meatballs and Grilled Tiger prawns (small tapas) as entrees and it was delicious and flavoursome.

For mains we ordered the Ribeye steak and Moroccan lamb shank.. Call it melt in the mouth but it was definitely something I would happily come back for.

Last but not least the Turmeric Rhubarb Panacota was definitely different but again couldn’t fault the meal at all. Thank you for a great night.

Went with a group of 4 of us and we all left very happy. The food was amazing, we got 8 different tapas, all of which had so much flavour and such beautiful presentation. Would highly recommend the mushrooms and the gnocchi they were so good! Desserts were also to die for, we got the affrogato and the brownie. Great friendly service from the waiter as well, highly recommend this spot.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary and had an awesome experience. The service and atmosphere was great with live music. I ordered the venison meatballs, and potato bravatas, which was really delicious. My husband ordered the lamb shank, which was superbly prepared....I tasted abit of course. The meat literally fell off the bone.
Will definitely be back and will tell all my friends at work! Thank you.

Had a lovely dinner in the sun outside at Astor. Friendly service was complemented by some very yummy tapas. We ordered the lamb chops, patatas bravas, meatballs, gnocchi, calamari rings and crumbed fish. Lovely selection of flavours, particularly the sauces.

Really lovely spot along the water front with views of the Bridge. They have big heaters outside so we were able to sit outside comfortable in winter weather. The service was great and the food was really good as well. We had steaks and some tapas, one of the steaks was a bit fatty but apart from that I would come here again.

My friend and I ordered mainly appetizers and they were all delicious. The lamb shanks were particularly flavourful and our server was great. Although the food was a bit pricey, it’s understandable considering the prime location of the restaurant.

People were really nice, but we had to wait for a long time to get our food (and we have a 5-year-old who behaved surprisingly well - so proud of him). When the food arrived, the steaks were very tasty. However, the vegetables were kind of sad, and the crispy squid had lots of dough and little squid. We have been having great experiences at First Table restaurants... We will probably not go back to this one, though.

My partner and I enjoyed the Tapas at Astor. We had a great table by the window with a water front view and shared several dishes. Some of the food was a little rich for us, but I would definitely recommend the restaurant, staff and setting.

Food was lovey and beautiful presentation. We shared a 0.5l jug of red wine sangria to go with our Tapas which was great. We weren’t asked if we wanted another drink or if we wanted to order more food so we sat for a while and decided to leave- nice enough place and friendly staff but weren’t attentive had they asked we would have had stayed longer for a cocktail or something.

Best passionfruit cocktail I've ever had in my life. The food was absolutely beautiful - there were 4 of us there and we were all very impressed. Super full afterwards as well so great portion sizing! The bearnaise sauce that they put on their steak is INCREDIBLE. I have actually dined here twice now and had the steak on both occasions and it's the best. Great music playlist as well and the waitress (with the gorgeous eyebrows) who took care of us was a real pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend this place 10/10 and will absolutely be going back again.

We had a great dinner at Astor Tapas Bar, the food was delicious and original! I would only point on the sizes, if you like to eat a good amount you will need to ask for several starters. The service was really good but the food took a very long time to be cooked. After all was a great choice!

Didn't have the best experience here - none of our dishes came out vegan even though it was discussed with the waitress and the chef. I asked for 1/4 of them to be made again and it was done very begrudgingly. Food was okay but nothing special. Also felt rushed even though the restaurant wasn't busy.
