About us

A Taste of Spain in Balmain.

Alegrias is a hidden gem tucked away at the back of the Institute arcade building, one of the oldest and most historic buildings in Sydney’s inner west. Located on the main street in the heart of Balmain upon entering you will be transported to Spain. With crystal chandeliers adorning its high ceilings and hardwood features that will invoke images of the classy churches of the past. Romantic candlelit tables with a central hardwood fireplace make it the ideal hideaway for a romantic date during the week, while the live Flamenco shows with dancers and musicians on the weekends transform Alegrias into a lively and boisterous venue such as can usually only be found in Spain.

The cuisine is traditional Spanish tapas with a twist from the labours of executive chef Alex Gutierrez wwho takes no shortcuts in its production and presentation with everything from the sauces to the bread being made in house to deliver authentic flavours of Spain. The wine list curated by Head Manager, Chef and Sommelier David León consists exclusively of wines imported from Spain that are not commonly found in Sydney so as to fully complement the cuisine. 

Alegrias is the ideal restaurant for group functions with its big tables and tapas being the perfect cuisine for social dining
