Summary

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.

Summary

Tapas king, José P’s “quick and easy” two-year-old is “well-located in the revamped Broadgate Circle”, and can become extremely busy (“it was too loud to hear one another talk”). But while fans do extol its “excellent food”, overall feedback is a little middling and muted for such a hallowed name.

Summary

“The slightly impersonal location doesn’t do any favours” to José P’s yearling in Broadgate Circle, and service can vary too; but on the plus-side his “top-quality tapas” is “seriously good and authentic”; “arrive early to secure an outside table on sunny days”.

Summary

From hip Bermondsey (José, Pizarro) to the heart of the Square Mile – cynics might say JP has sold out with this Broadgate Circle newcomer; early reports though say “it’s a great addition to the City”, with an “extensive” array of “superb” tapas, and “a super terrace for a sunny day”.

"The unfortunate sister restaurant suffers attracting the ambiance and pricing of the city. Hopefully the consistent high level of salty dishes was only a one off as the dishes were rather nice."
