Sadly after decades of being a high spot of South Lambeth Rd, things have moved along and so had Rebatos. They do outside catering I believe. There are loads of other restaurants close by including the excellent Canton Arms / modern British / simple fresh in old pub.

The Victorian plaster mouldings on the ceiling are samples of the mouldings produced in in this building before Rebato's took it over. The splendid floor tiles and low lighting in the bar, together with the welcoming staff make this a place for regulars. There is nothing pretentious - just good honest Spanish cooking and an excellent wine list, reasonably priced.... More

After reading various reviews of the joint I took the plunge and booked a table at Rebatos...When we got there we were taken to the main restaurant at the back (a smaller tapas bar at the front) which had good decor and looked inviting. The service we had from the waiters was excellent...attentive and gave good advice when I wanted... More

Hiding behind an unremarkable exterior, Rebato's is a charming, old-fashioned Spanish restaurant that has been a Stockwell neighbourhood favourite for decades. It once made the national headlines when an MI5 agent left Rebato's after an evening drinking in the tapas bar, and left a laptop containing highly confidential files in the taxi he took home! At the front of house... More

Took my wife, her mum and stepfather to Rebato's and was not disappointed. Not our first time as a couple - we have taken friends and family back time and again. And every single visit we have enjoyed exceptional food and hospitality. We sat in the more atmospheric bar area and ordered a multitude of tapas dishes from the main... More

Easily the best tapas in London and an institution. The new "feed me" option is brilliant - delicious things just keep appearing. Well worth the journey if you're not a local, and if you are a local, this should be a regular.

Stopped here with the kids whilst waiting for the girls to do the Shine walk. A lot of positive reviews on Trip Advisor, so thought we'd try it. Not at all disappointed. We ordered 5 tapas between 3 of us; Patatas Lucas, Calamares, grilled Rabbit, hicken croquettes and plancha lomo. Each dish was a good portion size, well cooked and... More

First time at Rebato's, certainly not the last, even if presently living in Paris ! The tapas are EXCELLENT, the wine is too, the service is very very friendly. My only regret concerns the lighting of the place : a little old style, low light, could be renewed and made a little more sparkly. See you soon !

If you want excellent food at affordable prices then you can do no better than going to Rebatos for Tapas. The dining room at the back is spacious and clean, and the owner is always pleased to help you. The service is good and attentive, the tapas are excellent, and the anchovies in flour are absolutely magnificnent - better than... More
