This “smart City restaurant”, close to the Bank of England, serves “excellent Spanish food backed by attentive but discreet service” and “an educative wine list”, in “great surroundings” set over two floors. “The emphasis seems to be on meat, and they also do the tapas classics to near-perfection – I love their take on a Russian salad and also the garlic prawns”.

Nothing but praise this year for the high-quality Spanish cuisine offered by this characterful two-floor restaurant right by the Bank of England, which is done out in a distinctive, comfy and plush Iberian style, teetering agreeably between the formal and informal.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
