Vaquero Dining

Chic but cosy Spanish dining and drinks.

You don't have to fall down a rabbit hole or stumble across a secret garden to find Vaquero Dining — but you do need to do the next best thing. Just look for The Albion Butchery on Sandgate Road, walk past an array of displayed, cured meat (and maybe think about taking some home to eat), and then prepare for a stashed-away restaurant and bar to materialise.

That's the first fun part. Obviously, the second stems from everything you'll consume while you're there. If devouring Spanish-influenced dishes, and drinking wine and cocktails in cosy yet chic decor — complete a back-lit bar, intimate dining room and airy al fresco area — sounds like your kind of thing, then Vaquero Dining is the place for you.

Food-wise, that includes sliced-to-order, meat-stacked charcuterie boards, marinated olives, kingfish ceviche and plenty of options cooked up in the charcoal oven — and a tasty meringue blackberry sorbet. And as for beverages, expect to choose from more than 70 wines, some great house cocktails and all the classics, such as old faves like old fashioneds and negronis.
