El Capo, Surry Hills

Bottom Line: Great atmosphere. Fun and quirky latin gangster themed decor. Helpful staff. Beautiful food, but beauty was definitely the priority. Some yummy dishes, but portions were tiny and there were some risky flavour combinations that wouldn’t appeal to everyone. All in all a fun experience and would recommend it, but not if you’re starving. More of a drinks and grazing while you catchup and people-watch kind of spot.
