Restaurant Kanela

Kanela‘s specialty is our mouth-watering selection of Tapas; individual dishes of authentic Spanish delicacies, offering a very flexible and sociable way of dining fabulous for sharing.

Of course you can’t go pass the famous… Paella ... Paella is a traditional Spanish dish of rice, seafood and chicken slowly cooked in a large cast-iron pan. A pan of Paella can be shared between 2-6 or 6-100 people. 

At Kanela our Spanish chef uses the freshest of ingredients and carefully prepares all our dishes. The chef and family go back to Spain regularly to ensure their menu & cooking style is constantly evolving & innovative. Additionally our specials during the week are generous and fabulously priced & our 'Churros con Chocolate' (Spanish donuts) too rate a mention, as they are locally famed and have many Melbournians travelling far & wide, to sample the exotic tastes and vibrant ambience.

We offer a wide range of Spanish wines, liquors, sherry, ports and beers to complement the dishes, not forgetting the ever popular Sangria made by our Chef from a family secret recipe!! Our bar staff will tantalize you with their cocktails or see our head barman Michael for the most flamenco cocktails around.     

Whether it’s as a couple or for larger parties, Kanela is sure to deliver a truly unique experience.
