This lively tapas house is the go-to place for South Bank visitors looking for an authentic Spanish bite and a glass of Sangria, sherry or Estrella Galicia on tap.
Seating is both indoors under the ornate carved ceiling or al fresco at wooden tables or people-watching benches and with a no bookings policy, the crowds are accommodated and processed efficiently.
But it's the food here that is the drawcard – delicious plates of tapas and share plates of raciones as well as a feast-worthy paella. Beef cheeks that melt in the mouth, succulent garlic prawns, tortilla, rustic empanadas and meatballs are but some of the offerings straight out of Iberia.
Better still are the breakfasts, some of the best to be found at South Bank: try the Huevos y Jamon - poached eggs with delicate shavings of jamon, Chorizo y Huevos – baked eggs with chorizo and confit tomato or, on the light and sweet side, pan dulce or churros with hot chocolate.
Friday and Saturday nights diners are treated to a side of flamenco with their meals.
Thursday and Sunday nights from 5-9 diners are treated to a side of flamenco and a jug of sangria with their tapas as part of 'Sunset Tapas'.
