Since launching in 1995 – well before the boom in Hispanic cuisine – they have maintained impressively high scores, building “a justifiably loyal clientele”.

“Surely among the best Spanish restaurants in London”, Abel Lusa’s well-regarded (if “pricey”) Earl’s Court outfit “is getting better and better” – a judgement that is reflected in higher ratings this year. “Very high-class food”, including “imaginative, innovative tapas” and an “exceptional tasting menu”, is accompanied by an “astonishing range of Spanish wines”.

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).
