This “modestly priced” veteran Hispanic opposite the Young Vic is invariably “packed out” from early evening. “It’s my default for a quick pre-theatre supper”. There’s “such a vibe between 7-9pm – nobody’s going to write sonnets about the food, but sometimes it’s just about the good times”.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

This “fun” tapas veteran sits a minute’s walk from the Old and Young Vic theatres, and is always “cramped and crowded” (“you need to arrive early to get a table”). “A very good Spanish wine list” helps buoy the “great atmosphere”, and for everyone who feels the food’s average or “past its sell-by”, there are others who still think it’s “terrific”.

“Reminiscent of a holiday in Spain”, this “fun” tapas-veteran, conveniently located for the Old and Young Vics, may have an “unprepossessing exterior, but inside it’s buzzy, lively and nicely decorated” (if “a bit 1960s nowadays”), and you eat pretty well without spending a packet too. Top Tip – “avoid the evening when a guitarist blows you away”.

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).
