Spanish cuisine will probably never become as integral to Sydney as Thai and Italian food – there’s simply not enough Spaniards emigrating here.

As long as the results are delicious, we're not fussed. Our list includes a number of restaurants dedicated to serving the classics faithfully, and many others which only use Spanish ingredients as a creative springboard.
