Great vibe on a Saturday night! The food is imaginative and delicious! However it is VERY packed, and not enough stools to table ratio! be prepared to be jostled, change of tables - but staff is great, and the food is top notch!

We took tapas here on a Saturday evening in December, arriving at 6.15, knowing that we would have to 'queue' for a table. The place is small. Really small. If it was a restaurant with tables, it would sit no more than 20. So it's about standing up, and if you are lucky, you can perch by a wall or... More

Jose's tapas are yummy, very good, and the atmosphere is lively. But in busy times (practically always) you'll probably need to eat/drink standing, with very little space between you and other clients.

If you like Tapas and want to try something authentic I recommend this Tapas Bar. I've always admired the cooking of Jose Pizzarro and this didn't disappoint. It was a really enjoyable experience, the only downside it is very small so gets busy early on and fills up quickly. The atmosphere was excellent with many native Spanish having lunch. Some... More

Jose pizzarro has two places along here one restaurant and this tapas bar on the corner. There is a few tables and bar stools against the bar. We chose the stools and ordered wine and 6 tapas. There was a great vibe and you can watch the chefs at work. A blackboard tells you what the specials are for the... More

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
