Super Scrumptious Tapas
Located in the cruisy leafy McMahons Point, it is hard to miss Delicado's striking black, gold and fiery red exterior. It will leave you a lasting impression as opposed to the pale-washed heritage street. That says a lot about their food as well.

It was a beautiful weekend and we were shown to a table out in the sun drenched area. It was lovely, quiet and we watched the world go by under the leafy trees. We couldn't ask for a better brunch spot.

The menu choices weren't extensive and you won't find the typical fast-food tapas like potato Bravas, garlic mushroom or prawns here. Instead each dish is genuinely creative, all came out beautifully and tasted wonderfully flavorsome.

Delicado is a combined restaurant, deli and a bottle shop all in the one location.

What we did was basically ordered down the menu. We were so impressed with everything we had, we couldn't resist and ended up ordering more.

They were all sensational. I would definitely revisit this tapas gem.

The portion size of the tapas dishes were small, but the sharing plates made up for it. Order a few combinations from the different sections and you will be substantially filled with happiness.

The first tapas (Seared Scallops (2) $14.00) was a pleasure to tuck in. Beautifully seared scallops sit on top of smoky sausage and cauliflower mash cream.

Nice crispy Zucchini Flowers filled with roasted pumpkin, thyme, and manchego. Very moreish and match well beers.

We absolutely adored this Yellow Fin Tuna Carpaccio ($18).
It was light, tangy and very refreshing on a warm Summer day.
The thinly sliced tuna pieces were beautifully tender soft, they were lightly marinated in oil and topped with a very festive Niçoise salad.

It was a visual feast as well as a taste sensation.

These white anchovy soldiers were totally rave-worthy. Seriously I would happily pay $12.00 for these without having to fly to Barcelona.

The flavour was so intense and filled with impact, they stood out from the rest and went straight to the lead board. It was unanimously agreed that these were the hands-down favourite at the table.

I would be very happy to snack on these every morning, lunch and dinner. It was truly a very tasty tapas.

The Snapper Ceviche ($16.00) were translucent and glistened in the refreshing citrus marinate. It was light and refreshing. The Chili seeds can give you a bit of kick.

The Vine Trussed Tomato Soft Goats Cheese Tart ($15.00) is refreshing and quite a good Summertime dish and probably a vegetarian-delight.

While we were waiting for our bill, we took a look around in the wine room/ bottle shop.

A very charming floor-to-ceiling wine cellar stuffed with import European wines, sherry and exotic spirits.

I would strongly recommend making a booking - as they can get unbelievably busy. My friend drove past it many times and she sees people piling out to the street all waiting for a table.

Taking a stroll down to the McMahon Point wharf to enjoy an uninterrupted million-dollar Harbour front view.

It was a delightful experience with the service and super scrumptious tapas. A perfect Saturday brunch enjoyment.

It might be a small menu, but it is a very impressive one. The presentation is exquisite.
