I have been going to Barrafina about every four months for the last three years. I love the food. It is genuinely delicious. Watching the food cooked on the hot plate makes one wonder why other restaurants could not emulate them. The staff are great.
It's best to go there early and to go for the food. It's a tapas bar and seating is the bar on stools. So it's not suitable for an intimate dinner and at times it's a bit of a crush. And of course if you don't like tapas this is not the place for you. I think I have eaten at most of the best restaurants in the UK and as I say this is simply the most delicious.
