What a shame, this place could be so good but we left feeling properly cheated. The limited menu has no exciting tapas dishes, just all the cheaper options at inflated prices. Over £8 for a small plate of peppers stuffed with tasteless gunk, or over priced microwaved meatballs with canned chopped tomatoes mixed in. To make things even worse the... More

I was lucky enough to find this place for lunch: a true Spanish corner just a few minutes from London Victoria. It couldn't be more authentic: the restaurant is run by Spanish people and there were so many Spanish customers during my visit: it must be a good sign. I enjoyed my tapas and the paella of the day served... More

I visited with family at lunchtime. We had paella which was just left out on the side in a large cooking pan. Had we known it was just left there uncovered we couldn't of had it. We sat outside under scaffolding, we had coffee and soft drinks too. Was amazed to find that a can of Pepsi was £2.50, we... More

Aggressive staff, food is ok at best. One of the personnel was quite aggressive and rude even though we had a full meal with 4 people and several rounds of drink.

Stayed in the area and wanted to try the local fare. Wasn't disappointed with this little gem. The paella was on point and the Spanish tortilla was delicious, the only complaint was the bed of lettuce and mayo based dressing it was served with. Also the recommended house Spanish Tempranillo wine pairing was delightful and a good price.

My sister and I got stranded in the rain. Our phones were almost out of charge (and we had a wrong US/European adapter for the charger). The nice shop keeper went beyond the call of duty to hook us up. We had a Spanish breakfast (good) and asked to try their famous ham (very good). Thanks!

Popped into this place for something different for breakfast. Something typical of Spain - chorizo and omelette. Lovely coffee too.

Visited whilst staying locally for business. Extremely limited menu to start with but to my regret I decided to persevere. I am shocked at how terrible the food was. I ordered: Onlette - cold and inconsistent in temperature; clearly not fresh Chorizo - not much to go wrong there Spanish mushrooms - simply doused in oil and paprika Paella -... More

Nice ambience and authentic staff but the food pretty poor, all you could hear was the microwave go "ping". However the Sangria was nice and the staff were very pleasant.

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
