Spirited, spunky and fun, this Spanish secret on Sydney’s famous Glebe Point Road is continually jam packed with groups big and small. The converted terrace is homely and welcoming, decked out with vintage chairs and light fittings, firewood feature and exposed brick walls and shelf upon shelf of Spanish and Australian wines. Sit upstairs for a great view over the busy street scene or take a seat at the bar and prepare to settle in. The menu here is continually changing to ensure only the freshest of ingredients are used. By day, settle in for classic Spanish brunch like Catalan baked eggs, but come evening, Despana serves fabulous tapas, sangria and goblets of wine. Produce is sourced in Australia and many of the delicacies imported from Spain. There is a wonderful selection to sample from Spanish cured meats, cheese and sharing plates of paella, charred octopus, spiced cauliflower fritters, chorizo and prawn skewers and some of the best braised beef cheeks you are likely to taste. Be not in a hurry when visiting this restaurant: the excellent team want you to stay for a while. Despana is loved by foodies and locals alike. Most definitely one to put on your list!
