Quickly becoming an icon in the South Bank area, Sardine Tin provides a casual atmosphere, amazing tapas, light meals and desserts, and is a great place for a chat and a drink.
The industrial décor sets the scene for a relaxed pit-stop in your shopping, holidaying or night-out. The wine list however, is really what Sardine Tin is all about. The champagnes are (of course) from Europe, while the reds, whites and dessert wines are Australian and NZ varieties. They also have cider, some beer and 'digestifs' if you would like a single malt scotch or a port with your cheese plate.
Tapas are the specialty of this little bar, and are great for sharing with friends after work, or as a break in your weekend. From semi-cured chorizo, to ocean king prawns, to manzanillo olives, or the wild mushroom croquettes, and the good old homecut fries with aioli – this menu is flavoursome and caters for the discerning wine drinker.
We also tried the creme catalan and the peaches and cream hazelnut parfait with pear, chocolate and tarragon for dessert. Both provided divine sweetness after the strong flavours of the tapas.
But, if it is all too hard, you can always grab a cheese plate from the suggestion board at the bar, soak up the atmosphere at South Bank, and get on with catching up with your mates.
Sardine Tin opens at midday and the kitchen stays open until 10.30pm or 11.30pm for late-night revelries.
