Excellent Spanish food of reasonable price. I love the cod and the chorizo. Jose is becoming one of my favourite bar in London. But sometimes it can be really crowded and you may need to stand for a while before moving to a seat.

Our second visit did not disappoint. We had patatas bravas, tomato bread, iberico pork fillet and croquillas. The pork melts in your mouth and is a favourite but it is all good. Perfect for lunch and a bustling place set on a corner of a busy street for people watching. Superb food and well worth a visit.

Such good food, really great daily menus & Great service. Even when the place is heaving - the staff are welcoming & will seat you as soon as possible. One visit and you'll be hooked.

On a family holiday to London with our 2 daughters (15 & 10) José was recommended by our London friends for lunch as we all love tapas. It didn't disappoint! The boquerones are a particular fave of our youngest & theirs were delicious. We also had chicken skewers, beautiful huge prawns, pan con tomate, patatas bravas (which were amazing), hake... More

Been many times and never once let down. Yes, you have to queue as you can't book. Yes, you have to stand on most visits and no, you can't take your drinks out onto the street but all that aside, it's just amazing! The guy on the door does this amazing balancing act of ensuring he knows you are there,... More

I'm a great lover of tapas, so was excited to visit Jose on a recent Sunday based on it's reviews. Arrived 10 minutes after opening time on a Sunday and it was already busy, but we got a window seat. The first thing which I noted were the prices. We always research menus online prior to visiting somewhere to get... More

I had walked by this place on the way to a job one day and thought, "Hmm... that'd be a nice place to meet a friend sometime." Sure enough, the next week I needed to meet someone in the same area, so I suggested trying this place as the tripadvisor reviews I'd read seemed pretty great. I usually am leery... More

Arrived for Sunday lunch - enjoyed drinks and fabulous olives whilst selecting tapas from interesting menu. All delicious: no problem with ordering more, when required - arrived immediately. However, reassuringly, and visibly, freshly prepared from kitchen behind bar. Excellent fish but finely sliced, rare pork fillet was, surprisingly, the stand out dish; would love to have the recipe! Knowledgeable, friendly... More

Located on the now trendy Bermondsey Street is Jose Pizarro’s Spanish Bar, Jose. Serving up a whole range of Tapas dishes, Jose has kept his plates very traditional here rather than put a modern twist on them like many of these eateries that are popping up. However, they may be traditional, but they are still very good. Read the reson... More

Jose is located at Bermondsey street, which is full of good cafes and restaurants. I visited Jose on a Friday, it was full of people and buzz, the atmosphere was friendly and within seconds we were helped to find a spot. We had a bottle of wine and several tapas, all of which were very nice. I really enjoyed the... More
