We had been turned away from another Spanish restaurant as we were a group of 10 (4 adults and 6 children - all very well behaved and not fussy eaters) before finding this wonderful restaurant. We phoned the property and asked if they could accommodate...More

Food was cooked just right, relaxed atmosphere, great for a midweek catchup. Service was faultless. Would visit again!

We arrived to find the place absolutely packed but the padron welcomed us to sit at the bar and have a drink until a table became available. I really like tapas and this place didn't disappoint. We had 6 dishes between the two of us...More

Had a lovely dinner here with my friend. Food was delicious and highly authentic. Staff were really welcoming and friendly and didn't mind that we sat there all night talking, drinking and ordering little bits as the night went on. Most enjoyable. Will definitely be...More

Tucked away but well worth seeking out, very popular even midweek and excellent Spanish food/feel. Certainly not a simple tapas bar but a place with real atmosphere.

Ordered chicken and it was very bland. The garlic bread was dripping with olive oil. Found the place was expensive for what they served. Not a great experience.

Small, quaint setting with a decent menu. Ordered 6 dishes to share between 2 of us. The portion sizes are good and we both felt we'd have enough, in fact could not manage dessert. The meatballs were tasty, patatas bravas had no flavour, chicken croquettes...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
