A return visit confirmed previously positive views. This is brave, imaginative cooking, well above Michelin star standard. A range of tapas left us purring, the highlight being the wild garlic Jersey Royal patatas bravas (a modern interpretation, more like croquettes...), with the eight hour tomatoes running them close; white asparagus with a tarragon foam worked well; the gazpacho verde with...

Held a business dinner here and from the moment we arrived for pre dinner drinks to leaving was excellent. Great service, great food, very innovative and a little quirky but tasted excellent. Really friendly service and whilst at the higher price range I would recommend for a wonderful dinner experience.

Dining here today was wonderful because the food was actually better than the food in Spain I had last month! I found both the seafood (calamari and octopus) and meat (lamb cutlets) very good. The lamb was so juicy and pleasing and the seafood was uniquely satisfying to me. The dessert was also very good and was the perfect end... More

I were sitting in London and wanted tapas and was recommended this one. We got a warm welcome and were seated and quickly asked for drinks. Atmosphere here is just right for aTapas restaurant and the guest made it a lively experience and not a noisy one. We got their best game and a lot of different and delicious dishes... More

A quiet place to stop for lunch, good for conversation and a little peace in the bustle of South Kensington. The menu is pricey and unusual, and very interesting. Roasted turbot, a side of Galician Padron peppers, washed down with a glass of delicious white, dry Albarino Spanish wine, followed by delicious coffee. I am not sure how much business... More

The food here was really delicious but it is quite pricey. I would recommend for a special occasion. As with most tapas it is good to be in a group of at least 4 to b able to taste enough different dishes.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
