This “great little tapas bar with simple service” at the edge of Borough Market is “a place where the food speaks for itself” – which may be a good thing, since its “cramped” accommodation inside a Victorian railway arch is “decidedly grotty”. There’s a definite meat bias to the menu, although the “squid with black rice is particularly good”.

“Just incredible! Every mouthful delights the tastebuds”“punchy, powerful, memorable morsels of real food” – at this meat-centric Borough Market tapas joint, run by “people who seem interested in what they’re offering”. A “buzzing, little place under a railway arch”, it’s a “cosy” experience if sometimes a little “rushed and cramped”. The Spanish team has a second branch in Soho, likewise praised for “superb tapas, and service with style but not pomp”.

“Full of energy and zest” – the “amazing” meat-based tapas cooking wins raves for this Spanish operation, concertina-ed under a railway viaduct on the edge of Borough Market, while service is “smiling and extremely friendly”. It has “a great vibe about it”, but on the downside is “very squished”.

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).
