Tapas with cheese and quince jelly, jamon serrano, chorizo with apple cider, rabbit, anchovies and different cured meats

After a few months renovation period, a revamped Robert Burns Hotel has emerged with more tapas and tartan on offer. The iconic pub invited Spanish Australia Magazine to the Opening Night.

The iconic pub invited SpanishAustralia.org to the Opening Night for a degustation of different paellas (the ink squid and the traditional Valencian are a must), tapas with cheese and quince jelly, chorizo with apple cider, jamon serrano, rabbit, anchovies and a whole range of cured meats.

Previous owner, Urbano Gutierrez, served famous tortillas and paellas. The current head chef, Ivan Saiz, with co-manager Jose Murgui (who previously worked together at St Kilda's Entre Tapas y Vinos) and Jose Ortega, put a special accent on the grill (visible to the patrons, same as the kitchen) and seafood.

With a bar at the front and a sitting restaurant at the back, the new revitalised Robert Burns Hotel caters for everyone with a Spanish yearning.
