Fans “love this place” – a softly-lit tapas joint, in Cotham Hill, which has made a name for its “small plates and Spanish sandwiches done right”; if there’s a caveat it’s that “too many covers squashed into a tiny space” can spell noise and a “rapid turnover”. Owners Kieran & Imogen Waite – also behind Bakers & Co (Gloucester Road) and Cargo Cantina/Gambas (Wapping Wharf) – launched new Mexican eatery, Masa + Mescal, in Stokes Croft, in March 2019.
“Lovely tapas” and a “buzzy” style win praise for Kieran and Imogen Waite’s “busy”, “cheap ‘n’ cheerful” tapas bar on Cotham Hill.
“Somehow they have managed to create a terrific atmosphere in an ordinary shopfront” at this “small, lively tapas bar” (and former pop-up) on Cotham Hill; on the food front, they “don’t content themselves with blind imitation”, resulting in “rustic” and “interesting” dishes, best chased with one of their “amazing gins”.
“A total gem!”; all the essentials of a cosy, fun meal are to be had at this former pop-up – now a buzzy Cotham Hill bar: “authentic” dishes (the “closest to real tapas we have had in the UK, said our Spanish friend”), a “great gin menu and a perfect vibe”.
