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”.

“A real addition to the desert of Hampstead!” This no-reservations, “very buzzy” (“it can get very full”) new tapas bar – a townhouse cellar in a super-cute street – breathes a bit of much-needed life into NW3’s dining options, serving “typical Spanish staples (boquerones, patatas fritas, chorizo) alongside enticing and original specials on the board”. “Service is borne of a genuine enthusiasm for the place and its customers.”

For 30 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).
