I have eaten at this restaurant with my parents several times and we have never been disappointed with our visit! The staff are always incredibly welcoming and attentive and the service very efficient. We particularly like the very varied tapas menu and always find ourselves...spoilt for choice! The atmosphere is warm and friendly and this is a great place for family gatherings and celebrations. Great value for money too!More

Had some lovely tapas accompanied by delightful service. Simple, but great place to catch up with friends or go out for a nice dinner.

I have eaten at the restaurant a number of times over the past few years. The waiters are very friendly. Particularly Mel, Met and Tony. Excellent atmosphere and great food. I would definitely recommend!

This is the second time I have been here and I was hoping for a better dining experience especially with such a high review score. The mussels were small and shrivelled with many empty shells. Service was good and nice owners but for the price...the food could have been better. Very limited wines by the glass and I did not want to buy a whole bottle because my partner was drinking white and I was drinking red.More

I booked a table at this restaurant for a best friend's birthday. Our first time dining here even though we are local. We were not disappointed. The food, service, friendliness and ambiance was just awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the staff singing happy birthday...with a sparkling candle on a plate of fresh fruit was adorable. Will definitely visit again.More

Went for a birthday lunch and had fantastic tapas. The waiter overheard that it was my birthday and the staff (without us asking!) brought out a special plate of fruit with a sparkler. Definitely recommend. Great food, great service.

I have literally just been to this restaurant for lunch. The food was delicious, the staff are so friendly and the service is great. I love the ambience as well. You can't tell from the outside how lovely it is. Check it out if you...are in the Streatham area! I have been before and my experience was the same. I highly recommend trying this place. I only write reviews about places or products that I really enjoy. This is one of them!More

We have lived for 20 years in Streatham and only just discovered Bar 61 on our doorstep. We have missed out and will be going back. My wife is discerning and this is the first restaurant she is happy to revisit. The food is great...and ratatoullie was delicious. Very nice atomosphere.More
