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.

I was looking for a good tapas bar near my hostel at Wombats and came across this gem. I'm so glad I did. It is a tiny restaurant with a few scattered tables, bar area and a ledge along the back for sitting. You will probably want to come in either early or late to make sure you don't have a wait. Me being just one person, wasn't a problem to get a spot at the bar right by the kitchen,... more

A speck of a place but I always have to stop in when in London. Delicious tapas. Their Iberico ham is DELICOUS! As in two plates for myself delicious. Most of the dishes are 7-10 pounds (Iberico 14pounds).

If you are ever there at closing time - they are obsessive in their cleaning of this place!

The staff is super friendly and accommodating. As I initially mentioned, it is small. That will... more

After a full day of walking around London, I stumbled in here in desperate need of food. 7 hours after my last meal, 15 miles walked, and 90 degree heat, I was famished.

The restaurant is tiny, so being a solo traveler, I sat at the bar. Warning, they don't have AC and it's an open kitchen so I sweat more inside than I did walking around all day outside. Worth it though, the food was great.... more

The restaurant is small and cozy, and I love that it's tucked away on a quieter corner of Bermonsey Street. I came with a friend on a Saturday late morning for brunch to avoid the wait. They serve wine all day but unfortunately it was too early for us.

We showed up here around 7 on a Monday night on our last night in London. The place was completely packed but the host greeted us and told us he was having the best day of his life. And it really felt like he was, even in the middle of a packed restaurant and here we are trying to add to his workload. He offered to let us stand at the counter and start ordering food and then once a seat... more
