“The small space makes this an atmospheric experience and the food of couse is up to Jose high standards”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

We have a glut of poor tapas restuarants in London with 'samey' and not great food. This is different, the fresh food is cooked in form of you and as ever with Jose the service is great. Excellent wine list.

“Lovely evening”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Visited Jose after reading the reviews on Trip as we wanted to visit a tapas bar near to home, Absolutley loved the place,, It is very small and you cannot book. We had a wait of around half an hour but that was no problem as we tried out a couple of the excellent sherrys!! You order the tapas off a blackboard and we shared 6 dishes and 2 deserts!! The food was top class and the smoked beef to die for. The kitchen is an intergrated part of the room. Some people had to stand to eat but we got a place at the bar. Not much seating but the premises is small and so popular . The place is buzzing and had a fantastic ambience. It seems chaotic but the staff know exactly what they are doing and who is next for a table. They are so very efficient and friendly. Cant wait to return, Very reasonably priced. Loved it!!

“Lived up to the reviews”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went on Bank holiday Monday the place was really busy but the staff know what they are doing and in no time we were seated.
We had a selection of tapas including Iberico ham, Patatas Bravas and croquettes that were simply stunning partnered with gorgeous red wine and spanish cervesa.
Cannot fault a thing can't wait to return to try more items.

“Authentic Tapas”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

I was taken to Jose for my birthday. It is quite small but very authentic, just like tapas bars you find in Spain.
The food was wonderful, best patatas braves I have had anywhere.
Definitely recommend this place.
