This atmospheric Hampstead basement bar serves some of the “better tapas” in town, winning high praise for its changing Spanish menu and international wines. Bookings are only taken for lunch on Fridays to Sundays, but you can wait for a table in the pub opposite and they’ll text you.

A “revelation” – well, by the standards of Hampstead anyhow – this cute basement tapas bar with an open kitchen occupies a cellar space, near the church of St John-at-Hampstead, and has taken the area by storm with its “constantly changing menu, intriguing wine list and very friendly service”. There’s no booking, but they’ll phone you if you wait in the pub opposite.

“Head down a modest staircase into a warm, informal space with an open kitchen to watch” at one of Hampstead’s most exciting openings of recent times (for those with long memories, “the old Cellier Du Midi premises, transformed by a local couple who like to meet their customers”). On the menu “amazing contemporary tapas, with some of the more substantial offerings a meal in themselves: the pig’s cheek, for example”. “You can’t book” and “evenings can be busy, so be prepared to wait at the pub opposite and they’ll phone you when ready”.

"We enjoyed it here for 2nd time in 3 weeks. The food is well presented and tasty. The portions are small. The cod was lovely but one mouthful each. Friendly service. For 5 tapas size plates, 2 glasses 175ml of red, an extra portion of the lovely bread and olive oil, the bill was £69 with service."
