This was a real find and a great surprise. Possibly the most helpful waiting staff I've come across - knowledgable about their product and efficient with it, ( the fact that were so many in such a small place was impressive too). We nearly had sherry and were given every encouragement to do so with glasses to taste but chose... More

Tapas. Incredibly popular now in London. Strange given its origins of being associated with drink that Britain has never embraced it to go hand in hand with its love affair of booze up until recently. Seems it can be found everywhere in every guise and has even spawned a trend in the form of "British Tapas" popping up alongside Italian... More

This is stunning food! Just go, if you can! Went with my wife and we shared patatas bravas, croquetes, and Iberico pork fillets. Beautifully cooked and seasoned. The pork is cooked rare and melt in the mouth delicious with a subtle herb flavour. The bravas was lovely and the sauce really tasty and the croquetes contained ham and cheese which... More

Visited today, always wanted to try and was in the area, was not disappointed. We shared iberico pork, croquillas and patatas bravas. All so outstanding I cannot imagine better tapas. Complimented by excellent wine and sparkling water FOC. Place is only small but this makes for a great atmosphere. A must visit restaurant can't wait to return.

One of our favourite restaurants in London, its super small, but really friendly, and the food is just fantastic, while you are waiting, enjoy a lovely sherry. The small plates are packed with flavour and SOOOO enjoyable. We enjoyed braised lettuce with walnuts and honey, and seared pork, simply delicious and worth a trip. We are so happy it is... More

The food was absolutely impeccable. The breaded hake is something else. Iberico pork fillet is expensive but worth ever penny. Would have given it 5 if the waitress didn't get funny about a stool. Best tapas I've been to hands down!

I adore this tapas joint on super foodie Bermondsey Street. Joven de silos is my go-to wine choice all the dishes are delicious. My favorites include padron peppers, jamon, pan con tomate, patatas bravas, and chorizo al vino. Everything is fab in this little gem of a restaurant. Can't recommend it more.

Wonderful food, Excellent staff, buzzing atmosphere. Weekdays go early and theres no waiting time, say before 6.30, after which theres a pleasant wait until a table becomes available. I bought both of Joses books, the one Ive been most impressed with is Pizarro's Spanish Flavours, I cooked for 16 recently, making both starter, main and desert form the book, and... More

Great little find just off the beaten track. Staff were lovely and so much less hassled than borough market, better food too. Yes it's small and we had to stand waiting for a seat, but it's all part of the experience. The waiter brought seats over as soon as was ready. Beat tapas ive had, massively recommended.
