Harden's survey result
Fans warm to the “reliably, bare-boards, no-fancy-business” style of this well-regarded Hispanic on an attractive Bloomsbury street, which does a good line in “authentic tapas”. But, especially as it’s short on creature comforts, the bill does feel “rather expensive for what it is”: “why oh why don’t they spend some money on the decor?”.
With its “old-fashioned style” and “authentic Spanish tapas”, this Iberian haunt in one of Bloomsbury’s more attractive streets is a “neighbourhood favourite that’s always fun to go to” – if with decor that’s a little “lacking in character”.
“Every neighbourhood should be blessed with somewhere as friendly and reliable as this”, say happy regulars of this long-serving Bloomsbury Spaniard. Its “classic tapas and Iberian gastronomy” make it “the sort of place where you get ideas to go home and try yourself”. On the negative side, “the surroundings are ordinary”.
“Admirable” tapas has won a foodie reputation for this this long-serving Spanish joint, in a quaint corner of Bloomsbury. Quibbles persist, though: the food can disappoint, service can be “careless”, and “I do wish they’d do something about the ambience” (although it can be “lovely outside watching the world go by”).
