Summary

“A decent Spanish option (but it won’t blow your mind)” – these “welcoming and buzzy tapas bars” remain “the kind of places one can linger with friends in true Hispanic style” (but perhaps lack the pizzazz of the brand’s early days), providing “cheerful” (but “uneven”) service, and “reasonably priced” (but slightly “formulaic”) cuisine.

Summary

“I don’t know if they’re really all that special, but they’re terrifically enjoyable” – so say fans of these “vibrant”, contemporary Spanish operations, whose City and Canary Wharf branches are “good for business”.

Summary

Fans of these “bustling” modern venues say “they offer a genuine taste of Spain, unrecognisable as part of a chain”. And that was probably true once, but with expansion they seem more “hyped” and “impersonal” now, although they can still make “a decent fallback”.

Summary

These “cool-ish” modern Spaniards offer an “inexpensive and delicious” selection of tapas; “for a fairly quick business lunch” the E14 branch is one of the Wharf’s better options, and the “large” and “lively” Clerkenwell outlet is perhaps their best opening yet. A further outpost opened in Victoria as this guide went to press.
