Sunshine goes best with sharing plates of tasty tapas and jugs of crimson sangria. Introducing Bar Espana, the new Spanish tapas bar and restaurant where all good nights start and end.

A stone's throw away from the beach, this vibrant eatery is located in the trendy district that is Broadbeach. It might be Australia outside, but inside it's very much a Mediterranean paradise; we're talking playful Spanish tiles, bright-red chillies hanging from the bar and a minimalist take on furnishing that makes this eatery incredibly chic but super chilled.

If you're in the mood for sharing, you're in the right place! Flavour combinations come in all shapes and sizes, especially the small tapas plates. Mix and match with classics like the grilled chorizo with chickpeas, the chicken meatballs with a rich, truffled mushroom sauce and the chargrilled lamb skewers that come with a refreshing yoghurt dressing. Jazz it up with some local king prawns or Port Lincoln sardines and add your five-a-day with the stuffed zucchini flowers, tomato salad or sauteed greens.

If you want dinner on one plate, their expertly-made paella is perfect for sharing. Simply grab yourself a spoon and tuck in! And it's not an authentic Spanish experience without a glass (or 3) of Sangria. For something a bit lighter, opt for a summery watermelon martini, passionfruit caprioska or sport an orange tongue with the Aperol spritz!

We thoroughly enjoyed the great food, drinks and friendly service. We started with cocktails and white anchovies, cheese croquets, prawns and pork belly special. Everything was delicious, we then order the meat paella which was very tasty and filling. Despite having over indulged, we decided to order churros for dessert, yummy!! Thank you for looking after us, your friendly, efficient service really made our night an enjoyable one. We will return!!

We dined on a Saturday night before the Queen gig and it was pretty busy at 5.30pm but we were seated immediately and straight away asked if we would like drinks, which we did! Five minutes later they were back with our drinks and we were ready to order food. We ordered tapas of calamari and halloumi to start and then the meat paella to share. All three dishes were absolutely amazing, the calamari was the best I’ve had in years. So soft and not overcooked! All of the food was beautifully presented. I’d highly recommend the paella, it was so delicious with so much flavour.
Would definitely have paid full price for that meal! Everything was on point, friendly attentive service and fantastic cuisine!

Oh my gosh! What a feed. My partner and I loved everything about Bar España. We rolled all the way hone after trying the set menu. The food was beautiful! Only note is that the tables inside are extremely close together, it felt as though we we were taking turns to talk with the table to the left.
We will definitely be back!

I felt like I was back in Madrid! Outstanding service, Spanish wines (even cava!) and great food. The snapper and cheese croquettes were stand outs. We’ll be back for sure.

We had a fabulous night at The Bar Espana. The staff were super lovely & friendly. I would recommend the tapas anchovy bread, beef cheek empanadas & prawns. Paella for main seafood which was plentiful and tasty. Cant wait for our next visit.....

Went for a lunchtime meal. The service was great but the food could have been better. Despite a limited menu, we expected more. Rumour has it that their dinner menu is better and I'm hoping our experience was the odd one of the lot!

An excellent restaurant. Paella was delicious. My 13yo boy had beef cheeks in pastry, he was still a little hungry but the manager gave him an extra serving no charge. Waiters were all so friendly, great service from Carmen. Will be back.

The Service from the staff was absolutely amazing!
So friendly and helpful; Can not fault waitstaff in any way!

Entrees came out super fast which we were surprised with! But the time in between Entree till mains was a bit long.

Best Calamari!
Best chicken meatballs!
& The steak was absolutely beautiful!!
Lamb skewers were very large and not what I was expecting! Couldn’t even finish one of them!
Yummy Sangria!

Nice casual vibe to the place. Was busy but not too packed! Would 100% recommend this place.

I found it very difficult to find this place I almost gave up! so make sure you know where to go before your booking Time. If you enter oasis carpark after 5.. you will get free parking. As it’s free first two hours till 7.. then it’s free after.. you won’t be at your car till after 7 ☺️

We enjoyed a relaxing lunch alfresco which was very enjoyable. Expect to experience a touch of Spain with the relaxed serving time, as the Paella takes a while to come out but is cooked to perfection. Drinks could be served quicker as the restaurant wasn’t very busy at the time. Dare I say the Paella was actually better then the Paella I ate in Barcelona. Gorgeous prawns topped the lunch off perfectly.

Unfortunately this experience stared off disappointing and continued that way.
The address and phone number displayed by First Table are incorrect. We wandered around for half an hour trying to find the place. Finally found it no where near the address.
We tried 5 different dishes and the jug of Sangria and the only thing we really enjoyed were the lamb skewers. Even with First Table, the prices were way too expensive. 24.95 for 4 prawns!
Unfortunately we wont be back.
