We live close by & have been many times. Aside from lovely regular dishes they always have wonderful specials. Great wines by the glass. Hard to get seats as it is usually packed. Highly recommended.

Fantastic place, one of our favourite places to eat, lovely small tapas plates, packed with flavour, great atmosphere, if a little packed at time. You just have to try the sherry too, it not just for your parents :-)

From the moment you walk in you are treated with a warm friendly hello from the family who runs this small unassuming tapas restaurant. The tapas menu is perfect because it allows you to try a couple different dishes which are always being updated based on what is in season and fresh.

I loved going here but my visit on a very busy Thursday was a huge disappointment and maybe the shape of things to come. i usually visit on a Sunday afternoon though the last visit was a few months ago. The waitresses are great, very friendly suggest wines give a try a few before you choose a bottle. Thursday night they had a shift of pretty brusque Spanish guys who took offence if we didn't order tens of dishes and when we had no seat took offence that we would have more food when we did get a seat and would not stop trying to top our glasses up STOP this. I don't think our wish to sit was completely out of order since we had been there over an hour. They have removed seats and are going for the standing up Spanish tapas vibe, trouble is there are no other tapas bars for you to go around as you would in Spain. I think i will probably now avoid and go to either Copita or Barrafina in Soho.

I feel really bad not to have written anything about Jose before as it's been long time since I visited it. Small and lovely place with professional and extremely friendly staff, food is great, and the wine and sherry list is unbeatable, I can't wait to try Pizarro too!
