Incredible service and great London Bar. A classic. Bar has great drinks, great food and service is spot on. It's a staple for any London visit. Close to Blackfriars station and perfectly located for a night out thereafter.

The food and the service at this El Vino never disappoints, even if the interior is little gloomy and the general dining experience a bit old-fashioned. This was a visit on a spectacularly hot and humid day, so most people were sitting outside, which undoubtedly...More
