Featuring an open kitchen – where you can keep an eye on the chefs creating classic and contemporary Spanish dishes – Barrafina is the latest venture from restaurateurs Sam and Eddie Hart. Similar to its sister restaurant in Soho, there is a no reservations policy; so it’s first come first served at this animated eatery.

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