“Great Little Find, Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

We went in for drinks and some charcuterie and it was excellent.

Great service, buzzy but relaxed atmosphere and the charcuterie (which they cut and prepare infront of you) was delish!

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Dehesa and its sister restaurants The Salt Yard and The Opera Tavern never fail to provide excellent, tasty food with friendly efficient service in fun surroundings. The wine list is interesting and well priced. We have been to all three quite a number of occasions and the experience has been first class every time. The twice baked crab souffle is worth going a long way for. Quite, quite superb. The portion size is perfect and mean that you can try a good selection of the dishes.

“A great find on our trip to London”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

On our planned trip to London I researched Where to eat & Dehesa appealed to myself & partner. We booked a table & met family , we are so pleased we did.
The food was extremly good, very tasty & as we all choose different dishes they arrived at different stages which we all agreed was a great way to eat! The scallops were wonderful as were the prawns & the sirloin steak!
Service was attentive & atmosphere relaxed, a very enjoyable evening, would definatly return on our next visit to London.

“Cosy, welcoming & great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Dehesa is the sister of Salt Yard and the Opera Tavern and, in my opinion, the best of the lot.

It's a small restaurant, with mostly high tables and stools. This creates a great, informal atmosphere that matches the fantastic food perfectly. Service is friendly and efficient but you never feel rushed.

I've been there for lunch and dinner several times so can vouch for the consistency of the food and the service - a really lovely restaurant, will be back as soon, and as often, as I can.
