Time Out Sydney

A garishly painted corner terrace located in the heart of vibrant Blues Point village announces its intentions quickly – ‘A Taste of Spain’. Delicado, with its pocket-sized fine wine store, Spanish accented providore, casual restaurant and busy wine bar, is a unique proposition in Sydney town. Ably led by sommelier and wine journalist Ben Moechtar, Delicado deserves attention for its brilliantly focused wine list, superb tapas menu and a smart yet casual ambience. Perch yourself on the footpath under the leafy plane trees and watch as hip floor staff administer a lurid plate of padron peppers, a minefield of small, bulbous green mini-capsicums with the ideal accompaniment in a glass of ultra-fresh, tangy Argueso manzanilla sherry. Snacks come thick and fast: zucchini flowers are a highlight, with a macabeo, or try the lightly spiced meatballs and a deeply coloured tempranillo from Rioja. With perhaps the city’s best range of Spanish and Spanish-inspired tipples, the wine list is a certified highlight. Moechtar seems omnipresent; a warm host who happily takes his wine bar patrons on vinous journeys from the textured whites of Yecla, to spicy reds of Navarra. Atmospheric, fine-tuned yet casual, Delicado is a real asset to wine bar enthusiasts of Sydney.
