Spanish Restaurants Catering

I would like to highlight a list of restaurants and catering services that I have come to enjoy. I  recommend them all:  they offer very good food and service. They also stand out since they cater an authentic taste of Spain.

Patterson Lakes, Melbourne Concerts  Thomas Lorenzo

This last Sunday, October 16, I had the pleasure of performing at the Spanish Restaurant Puerto. 

It is located in Patterson Lakes,  outside Melbourne. This is the full address: Harbour Plaza, 18/11 Thompson Rd, Patterson Lakes VIC 3197

I tend to be very choosy about which restaurants I play in,   as I adore to be able to play for a crowd that loves to sit down, enjoy good food and also listen to good music, as part of the experience. The crowd in this venue, definitely, loves their food and their music.  It proved to be a concert dining experience.

I must thank the owner Gavin Warner, the manager and the staf,f for their warm welcoming.

I was surprised to discover their excellent selection of Spanish wines and most of all, to be able to chat in Spanish with one of their staff , Diego Mateo Sanchez from Cuidad Real.
