“Just thinking about it is making my mouth water!” – Nieves Barragan and José Etura’s “bustling, casual and friendly” two-year-old, tucked off Regent Street, is establishing itself as one of the West End’s brightest stars: “a guaranteed first-class food experience with a lot of fun thrown in”. “The downstairs bar serves modern tapas, including the beloved carabineros and croquetas. Upstairs at the communal tables, you’ll feast on traditional dishes like suckling pig, cooked in an Asador (wood-fired oven)”. Both locations score a big thumbs up: “not cheap, but what an utter treat to have well-executed, passionate, uncomplicated cooking of Spanish classics in the middle of London”.

Ex-Barrafina executive head chef, Nieves Barragán Mohacho, and José Etura’s yearling off Regent’s Street, comprises both a downstairs floor with tapas counter and a “wonderfully buzzy” upstairs room with shared tables, which revolves around the open kitchen’s asador (wood-fired oven). Both come recommended, with reporters “blown away” by the “delightful service”, “outstanding” food and upstairs the “fabulous experience of cooking right in front of your eyes”. But, while fans predictably say “move over Barrafina”, ratings have a way to go yet to rival their former employer. Top Menu Tip – “finally, suckling pig just like you get in Spain” from the asador.

Summary

Nieves Barragán Mohacho and José Etura, who met working at Barrafina (where the former was the executive head chef), have unsurprisingly chosen a Spanish style for their autumn newcomer, which – with additional bar and asador (wood-fired oven), will open in Heddon Street. The ground-floor will feature a fresh seafood counter and an open kitchen producing regional dishes from across Spain, while the upstairs restaurant will focus on the cuisine of Galicia and Castile.

"Get the counter seats. Front row seats of your food being lovingly prepared right in front of you. This is not a quiet romantic dinner - this is full on loud engaging culinary theatre - with fabulous results. Loved the simple super fresh food, the interaction with the chef, the fabulous engaging full on ambience. One of my London favourites."

"Top of the range of Tapas in London - and thats with a lot of excellent competition. Interesting range of things on offer, beautufully presented and with enthusiastic waiting staff. Much more luxe than the others, perhaps that is why it is so expensive!"

"Tapas focussed on seafood with some Spanish sourced specialities. Seats at the bar provided both theatre and delicious bites. Service was bordering on the deliriously helpful. Atmosphere energetic and warm. Expensive though."

"Lovely place to sit at the bar with a great buzz and attentive service - definitely more comfortable than Barrafina, although I don’t think the food is quite as good. Possibly trying too hard to be different and innovative, yet still very good. "
