José P’s larger restaurant sibling to his nearby Bermondsey tapas bar continues to be outrated by its nearby stablemate and can be viewed as being “quite expensive”. On the plus side, though, the food is “fabulous” – at times “exquisite” – service is “really friendly”, “attentive and quick”, and “it’s a great room”.

Lacking the pizzazz of José P’s nearby tapas-bar sibling, which is one block away, his somewhat bigger contemporary Spanish restaurant never inflames quite as much passion as its little sister. It still achieves very good ratings, though, for its “really interesting food” and “attractively priced wine list”.

José Pizarro’s contemporary Spanish restaurant never quite matches the drama (or ratings) of his original venture – the nearby tapas bar sibling, José, on the other side of Bermondsey Street. Service here can be “a bit hit and miss”, but in other respects it is a “highly competent” operation with a “warm” atmosphere and “authentic” cuisine from “a relatively short menu”.

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).
