Tapaella Grill is located on a quiet street in Kennedy Town. The cozy Spanish restaurant accommodates around 20 people.
If you go there for lunch, you may try its Set Lunch Tapas with Satauted Prawns, Satauted artichokes, Ham and Chicken Croquettes and Deep fried manchego cheese ($88). The Satuated Prawns are of bite-sized and are well-seasoned. The Satuated artichokes are strongly flavored. Both the Ham and Chicken Croquettes and the deep fried manchego cheese are puffy, crispy and savory. We finish off with a small cup of strong coffee.
Apart from the Set Lunch Tapas menu, there is also a Set Lunch menu. You may choose to begin with either Grilled Duck Breast with salad or soup with bread. The soup is a bit watery. The French bread is crispy on the outside but not fluffy enough inside. There are three options for the main course - Sole fillet, New Zealand alliance rib eye and Roasted half chicken. The Sole fillet served with seasonal vegetable and butter rice come in pretty large portions. The fish tastes good with cajun in dill tomato sauce, while the rice is long, thin and chewy. We finish off with the dessert of the day, which is a scoop of Haagen Daaz ice-cream.

Signature dishes include Jamon Iberico (Paper thin slice of Spanish Wild Boar Iberico Ham) ($165), Jamon Serrano Con Melon (Paper thin slice of Serrano Ham with Melon) ($95), Gambas Al Ajillo O Pil Pil (Shrimp sauteed in olive oil, Garlic & Chilli Pepper or Spicy Sizzling Prawn) ($72), Calamares A La Parrilla (Grilled Squid in Lemon, Garlic and olive oil) ($67), Croquetas De Jamon Y Pollo (Ham & Cheese Croquettes) ($62), Gaspacho Andaluz (Traditional Spanish Vegetable cold soup) ($49) and Paella A La Valencia for Two (Saffron flavored Spanish rice with Chicken, Chorizo and Variety of Seafood) ($265).
