Barrafina is an authentic Spanish tapas bar located in London's Soho. It serves a traditional but contemporary, regional a la carte menu and there is a daily blackboard of specials, created by Executive Head Chef, Barragan Mohacho. Barrafina operates a first come first serve queuing system, and does not take reservations for their 23 stools. However, part of the fun of dining there is eating little bites and sipping on something delicious while making the line. The kitchen is open and guests are close to all the action and drama while their food is prepared.
My trip to London is never complete if I don’t pop by to this place. Been a returning customer and love it every visit!

This is a really nice place to go with a friend or a couple of friends, no big groups though as you sit at the bar and there's no much space. Everything is really good and would recommend to share plates to try different things.
Just love this place, walk through chine town as a scenic way to get here and aim to get there for 4.45pm to take advantage of the first sitting at 5pm. No booking here just first come first served basis and it works amazingly well....More
We visited Barrafina in the newly opened Coal Drops Yard in St.Pancras.

Go here NOW. I often breezed past this legendary Soho venue quite easily choosing the larger, more cocktail focused brands that litter dean street. They have Quality produce, the chefs finesses each dish expertly and the buzzy feel of the venue just echos great chat....More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.

They will do - but from my experience you can't ever reserve tables, so if busy which it normally is you would have to either sit apart, or potentially wait in a queue quite a while until enough seats in a row become... More
