I visited this rather inconspicuous little place, hidden on the corner at Effie Street. A bit sceptical at first, but this soon dissipated as I'm greeted with a warm smile and a friendly Buenos Dias Señora.

I ordered the special of the day, which was Tripe cooked in tomatoe sauce and chick peas. Gloriously tender, melt on the tongue. A delight which reminded me of my childhood. The garlic prawns( note King Prawns) and 8 pieces, tickled the palate. There was no stopping when I savoured the beautifully, but balanced spicy Chorizo. Three plates of Tapas, girl, I thought no point in looking at the scale tomorrow. Enjoy. And so I did, all washed down with the red house wine (no pretence here and enjoyed without shame). No point in fiddling with the free WiFi as food comes Pronto.
Great service, and for me the best Tapas in London. I must visit again. SOON.

I love El Metro, though I only usually go before a Chelsea game.
Small but friendly and warm place, the patio heaters make it perfect for an outdoor beer. The cosy bar / restaurant area is good too.
Great tapas, service good even when busy, and a decent glass of wine or bottle of San Miguel!
Perfect for a friends catch up, recommend it!

I went to El Metro a few days ago with some friends and we had a good time. The restaurant is in a very good location, close to the Fulham Broadway station. We had some really tasty tapas and I also ordered chicken with chorizo, that was nice. The atmosphere was very welcoming and the staff was very kind. If you like spanish food is really recommended, we´ll be back soon.
