“An authentic taste of real Spain”
Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Lightning fast service, absolutely delicious food, a great family run authentic Tapas restaurant.
Would not be out of place snuggled into a corner of a sun drenched castilian Plaza rather than opposite the Nags head shopping centre on Holloway road.

Really busy too- I after guess 25 years in business word gets around.

“Excellent Authentic Spanish Food and Fantastic Friendly Service”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

The food at El Molino is absolutely excellent. We regularly drop in for the amazing tapas and have never been disappointed!

We often take friends and family to visit and everyone always says how brilliant it is and that it's a little overlooked gem.

The food is extemely reasonably priced, expecially considering how fresh and delicious it is and there is a great wine list to suit all budgets.

The desserts are also very tasty, although to be honest we're usually too full of spectacular tapas for dessert!

“Food a bit average but good service”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

One of the better choices in this area of London. Homely feel to the place, nothing to complain about. Not 'the best steak in London' as asserted by another reviewer, but no disaster either. Courteous and friendly, attentive service. I left happily fed for what we paid but not astounded, 4 out of 5 stars, fair enough?

“El Molino - A Spanish gem in Londres!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

My wife took me here for my birthday dinner. This was my experience -
Hostess - Victoria
Chef - Ernesto

Food - Absolutely awesome. The best steak in London. Nothing more nothing less. The food was simply brilliant.

Decor - Not too in your face. Simple and beautiful.

Service - Victoria's service was warm. She helped us with the menu and followed by Ernesto's culinary expertise. Just brilliant.

Verdict - Go there now. This is a restaurant not to be missed. Plus it's family run.

PS - Try the Sangria, the steak and Crema Catalan.
