With its “authentic Portuguese small plates” and “fab list of Portuguese wines”, this small blue-and-white-tiled bar near Borough Market “manages, unbelievably, to bring something new to London”. It’s “a bit hard to find” in the new Flat Iron Square food development – “but worth the search”.

"A charity evening co-hosted by the Kricket team. Bustling and warm atmosphere. Fixed, five course menu, of which the tiny clams were the star. "
