This small and cosy Spanish restaurant is designed for informal eating and drinking.

José Pizarro has worked hard to create a space that brings together the informal bustle of the tapas bars at La Boquería in Barcelona with the traditional tapas bars found in the hot, dusty towns and villages of Andalucía.

The daily changing menu depends on what looks good at the market each day.

Spectacular find!

I had seen the reviews for Jose's and had to check it out. I was very satisfied with my experience.

The manager/ greeter was very accommodating and helped with in selecting the perfect red!

If there isn't too long of a line it's definitely worth sticking around and enjoying a glass of wine/drink while you wait for 15-20min.

The service continued to be excellent though...more

What I love about tapas is that it comes thick and fast. It matches the buzz of a Spanish environment and its atmosphere, and this is what makes @jose_pizarro one of if not THE best Spanish bars to eat in London. Tight, cosy & authentic space. Certainly my favourite tho Barrafina is battling it close as if it was Ronaldo vs Messi for the Ballon d'or (again).

I did want the pluma, oh THAT...more

On the pricey side but every tapa is a work of art. Perfect blend of textures and flavors, also nice play on hot and cold.

Hands down some of the best tapas I had in a while.

Still and sparkly water comes with the meal.

Worth noting: the chicken liver, fried cheese and honey, and mushroom croquettesmore
