We have liked Como 3 a lot, great place with great food.
We ate an excellent Spanish stew ox tail, confit lam, morcilla gyiozas (really amazing), wagyu beef tataki and two different cooked octopus "a la gallega", don´t miss the home made desserts.
The owner told us they were going to start serving shushi, I won´t miss it, we are already planning our next vistit to Como 3.

Although I often contribute reviews to sites like TripAdvisor, I almost never write one immediately after a meal, Not so with Como3 Cantina Chic. In sum: I cannot recommend more highly this wonderful, virtually undiscovered gem of a restaurant in London/Islington. The food was phenomenal, starting with the amuse bouche (a tiny cup of Spanish-style gazpacho that set off a tomatoey, garlicky, oniony explosion on my tongue), Next up were the vegetarian gyoza dumplings, which were so fresh, so light, so melt-in-your mouth ethereal, and so different from the many that I've choked down in my life. My third course was octopus two ways-- one being pressed and sliced, like a terrine, and served room temperature on slices of tomato and cooked potato, with olive oil and herbs; the other being poached and sliced and served slightly warm with smoked paprika over a cloud of a savory sabayon-like sauce. I've never before had octopus that tasted so much like lobster. Next were the croquettes, crisped on the outside, melting sinfully inside, atop fresh pico de gallo-like salsa. And then came the pork cheeks, fork-tender and rich, finished with a red wine-infused sea salt, and served with what the menu called corn cakes, but what this Yank would call a sweet cornbread. And last but certainly not least, the cheese course-- I got the small plate and was delighted I did, even though the choices were delicious and some I'd never heard of before. Are you getting the picture here? I ordered, and ordered, and ordered, until I simply couldn't eat any more, and each course seemed better than the one before it. And I was sad, very sad, when I had to stop. It's been quite some time since I had a meal this good. And did I mention the intelligently assembled, reasonably priced wine list? Como3 deserves to be jammed with customers-- and since it's only been open four months, I'm sure it soon will be. But for tonight, I was glad I could walk in, score a wonderful table, have a truly memorable meal and be treated to the attentions and suggestions of owner Pierre and his talented, helpful staff. Congratulations and thank you, Pierre, and bon chance, Como3-- now get to it, Londoners!

I wasn't sure if I should write this review just because I am tempted to keep this gem a secret so I can get a table on a Friday night. However, despite the risk of not ever being able to get a table I had to say how great this place is. Every dish was different but all full of flavour and perfectly executed. The pandan macaroon finished the meal off perfectly and to top the evening the wine list was brilliant. You won't be disappointed if you book a table.
