Neighborhood: Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.

Great location means high prices. If you are Spanish, you'll find this place Amazing. Like an Aladdin's cave...pimenton, tomate frito, manchego, turron, olive oil. It is great to see so the produce I normally stuff in my suitcase. But, it is London and worse, rates are high!!

As a Spanish person and since I’ve been living in London I need to say that I’m not going to buy there anymore not only for the customer service (simply awful and rude) but also the outrageous prices. I wanted to buy a terracota dish and I asked the guy for that. He didn’t make the effort to advise me when I asked for help, he looked like CBA, moreover I saw the price was different in other piece so I asked again why they were different prices,even thought when they were the same dish, and the guy just removed the sticker with the cheapest price just in front of me (unbelievable). They’ve lost a customer forever.

I admit that the Manchego I found at Garcia was better than the ones in the various supermarkets, but the prices!!! The same money for ridiculous quantities at Garcia's can be spent for a good week of shopping. At least we found the "vongole" au naturel, we were looking for a while...We paid GBP 2.75 for a small pot, in the supermarket (unfortunately rarely available) they normally cost GBP 1.00/1.50.

I thought this shop was expensive but today I had enough. I went to buy the fish stock which was already quite dear £5.95 for a 950ml bottle. To find that they not longer stock it, they now do the 480ml for £3.75!!!!
Which means if you were to take 2 to make up for the big one you would pay £7.50 for 960ml.
Daylight robbery. So disappointing that they ripping people off like that.

Then they have the cheek to treat customers like thieves.

Buying good quality Spanish food supplies in London is difficult but Garcia's is even better than Borough Market. The prices are fair-to-reasonable for the quality they provide ... although if you want 'any old' chorizo or jamon try Tesco for lower prices. Only Lidl has good quality at a low price ... although only when stocks are available. Anyone complaining about the price must be a tourist ... and this is a shop for aficionados who appreciate what they get. London is lucky to have Garcia.

Not only did their prices go to the roof, the staff is not welcoming and friendly anymore. It’s hard to support a local grocery shop if they don’t seem to be bothered. Went to Tesco instead, got the smile and half of the price.

My family have been coming to this shop for decades! For the last two times staff have been extraordinarily rude, dismissive and basically lacking in any customer service. There is a particularly rude young new chap , who has tipped things over the edge. It used to be a lovely (reasonably priced) experience , now it’s not only overpriced , but a wholly unpleasant experience. To add, my 80 year ok d grandfather was rudely dismissed when he asked if they still made sandwiches. I am furious and if I’m in the area soon I’ll be dropping by to let them know in person. Next time I’ll be going to Lidl! Awful.

As a Spanish I've always loved Garcia and sons shop and I have bought there for many years. Although I've always found it a bit expensive I thought it was totally worth it because of the variety and quality of the products. However, I went a few days ago and all the prices has gone up reasonable and some products are not affordable anymore like "huesos de jamon" which I find a bit unfair. I won't buy there anymore if they keep this prices or go even higher than it is now. Shame.

Each year we fly to London from the USA and make our annual trip to Garcias for our supply of Spanish holiday cookies and sweets. A great place with good supplies from Spain!
