Viewed in its own terms, José Pizarro’s outpost in Broadgate Circle offers fair value for the City: “despite not being a huge fan of tapas, I decided to give it a go and was not disappointed – the dishes were really good”. But, for such a prominent Hispanic chef, “the ambience is very ‘chainy’” and “it’s hard to believe it’s from the same stable as the Bermondsey restaurant, given the amazing reviews the other place gets”.

The vibrancy of the star Spanish chef’s tapas has always seemed slightly at odds with the glossy-but-corporate location of this outlet, in the midst of the City’s Broadgate Circle. Even those who don’t vibe with the place, though, acclaim its “friendly” style, and the cooking is rated from very good to exceptional.

This three-year-old tapas joint in Broadgate Circle consistently rates quite well and is often deafeningly busy, but in this more corporate environment has never generated the wider interest surrounding Pizarro’s original venue in Bermondsey.
