A Spanish tapas and sherry bar masterminded by Peter Sanchez-Iglesias (of Casamia - number 4 in our top 100 restaurants 2016) and named after his father. It opened alongside the relocated Casamia in Bristol's new General development (on the site of the old General Hospital).

Near the docks, Peter Sanchez-Iglesias’s aim is to ‘transport you to Andalusia’ (well that’s what the website says) at his casual tapas haunt (named after his dad). As a concept, it’s “absolutely spot on” and “tapas of the highest quality, with every dish a delight”, alongside a decent list of wines and sherries. “Try to get a seat at the counter for top banter with the chefs and great views as they toss stuff into the open fire”.
“A fantastic find. We liked it so much we went straight back the next week!”. Peter Sanchez-Iglesias’s tapas bar – named after his dad, who is part of the team – wins extravagant praise for its “great small plates”, “variety of choice”, “knowledgeable staff” and “laid-back atmosphere”. It’s tipped as a good place to take kids too. Top Tip: “ask for a table where you can watch the chefs doing their stuff”.
“The best tapas ever (especially having watched them make them by sitting at the bar) with superb flavours followed by desserts to die for” has made an instant smash hit of the Sanchez-Iglesias family’s Spanish tapas and sherry bar, where “the ambience makes the best even better!”
A Spanish tapas and sherry bar from the Sanchez-Iglesias family will open in mid-November 2016, alongside the relocated Casamia in Bristol’s new General development.
