Spanish restaurant Boque by Tapavino Opens its Doors in Sydney’s Darling Square

This new stall transports customers to Boqueria market in Barcelona by offering the freshest ingredients and serving up simple, authentic Spanish fare.

Darling Square in Sydney is taking its food offer up a notch with a new venue: Boque by Tapavino. This stall recently opened its doors in Maker’s Dozen food hall and aims to transport customers to Barcelona’s famous, bustling Boqueria market.


To be clear, this isn’t a restaurant, it’s a stall, though it also has an open kitchen and stools for customers, who can see their food being prepared. The menu is organized into sections: tapas, charcuterie and ham, salads, seafood, and side dishes. Highlights include the razor clam omelet, meatballs, ajoblanco soup, salt cod croquette, Serrano ham, patatas bravas, Galician-style octopus, and plenty of tinned products, such as anchovies and mussels.

Customers can wash it down with a glass of Spanish wine, which is offered in slightly smaller servings, the goal being for people to experiment and try a wider variety. Many Spanish regions are represented on the wine list, from Jumilla, Jerez and Galicia to Rias Baixas, Ribeiro, and Navarra. There’s also sherry, cava, sangria, vermouth, and beer from Spain.

Says the owner, Frank Dilerna, “The staff and I travel to Spain each year and we always end up at La Boqueria in Barcelona… I thought it’d be great to do something similar in Sydney,” according to broadsheet.com.au.

There are three other Tapavino outlets: one in Bulletin Place, Born by Tapavino in Barangaroo, and Balcon by Tapavino on Bligh Street.
