Bocados is the Newcastle favourite for Tappas. From the meatballs to the pork it is hard to fault. A great variety to choose from and I always leave satisfied. If there is a choice for dinner you will find me at Bocados. Enjoy! I wouldnt...More

We dined at Bocados with a group of seven diners. Saturday night's not the best night for a dining experience as the kitchen normally has to cope with lots of curve balls from the Saturday night crowd; normally characterised by groups out for a celebration....More

Took my boss from Sydney out for dinner here. Had the $49 banquet for 4 people. Food and service were both excellent. Highly recommended.

You can't go past this restaurant for great food. Family friendly. Reasonably priced. It's a bit stuffy inside and they seem to be unable to get the temperature right. This was my second visit and it was the same both times. Staff lovely.

Service was quick, location nice. Empanadas were delicious, paella was very average and more like a risotto - large size was disappointing for anyone who has had a large in Spain. Lemon Granizados was super delicious!

We've been a few times for dinner and never been disappointed. Buzzy atmosphere, delicious tapas, sangria and naughty churros. What more can you need?!

From the minute we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome. The atmosphere within the restaurant was great, the service even better and the food was outstanding. The plate of the day was the BBQ squid. I would highly recommend visiting.

My wife and I discovered this place some years ago. We've dined here many times and it never disappoints. If you have an early sitting for dinner from 6pm be prepared for tapas to come promptly: We love the whitebait , BBQ squid & Spanish...More
