This place is a real spanish tapas restaurant, from the food to the atmosphere you can really feel you are in Spain. I'm spanish so I know what I'm talking about. Great experience!

Visited in July 2014 during a business trip. Dined alone (which worked out well since grabbing any space to sit was close to impossible). Menu was very well-designed, and all items ordered were fantastic. Would recommend a visit to all solo travelers to London looking for a great meal (that don't mind standing or waiting for seats).

I visited Jose recently off the back of a recommendation. The atmosphere is great - bustling and vibrant, although you should not that there are very few seats in the tiny establishment so be prepared to stand and eat. The staff were extremely friendly and courteous, and food arrived promptly. The food was good - to be honest I didn't... More

Jose is the certainly the best restaurant on Bermondsey St, and one of my favorites in London. The food is delicious, and the service is excellent. Most of all I really love the atmosphere. Although you can't book and the restaurant is often busy, the staff do their best to accommodate and I have never waited very long for a... More

A real gem tucked away down Bermondsey street. Drink has some tapas (cheese, ham, prawns) all perfectly cooked or presented well. All the above complemented the Fino Gran Perez sherry perfectly. Just wish it was closer to where I live/ work. Definately worth the trip, but get there early as does get very busy

Bermondsey has to be the hot spot for foodies and is blessed with so many fantastic places to dine. Zucca, Brindisa and Jose is like having to choose which of your children is your favourite. I'm sorry Zucca and Brindisa but Jose edges it for me :) This place has a certain charm and the food here wins by a... More

Jose is one of my favourite restaurants in London. If you want good wine, great Spanish food and excellent service then I would highly recommend this restaurant. Do not expect to be seated at a table (you may be lucky enough to get one of the bar stool areas) but do not be put off by this - there is... More

Since the first moment I went into this bar, the atmosphere remembered me to Spain. Full of people drinking wine, around 20 kind of tapas, no tables, just a couple of barrels and bar to eat, like an authenticate Spanish bar. The menu this week was many dishes from Andalucia which were superb. You can see the kitchen, so you... More
