Similar to its sister restaurant in Soho, there is a no reservations policy; so it’s first come first served at this animated eatery.

Barrafina serves really delicious food and has wonderful service. It can be quite tricky to get a seat because the space is small and everything is served at the bar, but the staff made a real effort to make sure our group of three could sit together - even asking other customers to scoot down so that we could get seats together!

London's answer to Barcelona's best tapas bars. From the atmosphere, to the service and the food, except nothing but perfection.
