If you are looking for ok tapas at an ok price then go here. We did and had a nice evening but would I go again,probably not as there are loads of better tapas restaurants not far away . . .

“Under the Arches in London....An Authentic Taste of Spain”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

My third visit to Mar I Terra in Southwark in the last year (three seasons out of four ; including the joy of dining al fresco in the Summer)...as ever it proved to be a five star experience. Delicious authentic Spanish food, fine wine and even on a miserable November evening busy and bustling from early evening.
My colleague and I chatted on how much we enjoy eating here and how much we appreciate the hospitality of the staff who are attentive without being intrusive, knowledgeable and FUN :)
We enjoyed a splendid feast five different dishes plus bread, olives and homemade alioli; this week's special Espinacas al gratin con Manchego is a must - warming autumnal fare. For dessert, if you can find room I would strongly recommend the crema catalana and/or the turron delicious!!!
As stated in previous reviews the menu is not extensive BUT what is available is good quality, authentic and always of a high standard.
Mar I Terra delivers value for money and includes the service charge....so no hidden extras....maybe I shouldn't have written this review as now I won't be able to get a table!!!!!
