A taste of Spain that will keep you coming back for more - and you only need travel to Geelong.

The atmosphere suits all occasions, with large tables for provided for gatherings of great numbers or comfortable leather-trimmed booths at the back of the building for more private affairs. The staff ensure that you are looked after as soon as you step through the door to when you are leaving with a satisfied stomach. The service simply cannot be faulted with waiters more than happy to fulfil any request, including vegetarian specific menu if asked for.
No dining experience is complete with the the drinks menu - and Black Bull has an extensive one. From tempranillo to alborino or a house made Sangria, the Spanish beverages will complement your meal and leave you with an niggling desire to travel to Spain one day.
Dessert is something not to miss out on. The Churros doughnuts are a traditional favourite and the chocolate dipping sauce will result in some serious mouth-watering. The dessert specials are always a treat, with options varying daily. Generally you will end up with some lemon meringue delight or a fruit-filled cheesecake - so the options are never bad!
