Called in late Sat afternoon for a pre theatre snack. Tapas bar was busy but got a seat. Authentic food with excellent sherries and wines. Attentive service. Not fancy dining but proper Spanish tapas - excellent

This place reminded me of a great place I visited in Barcelona last year. The place was packed when we arrived just before 7 pm, but somehow they managed to squeeze us in to a small space standing at the bar ... and there we where for the next 2+ hours. It was great watching them cook and serve the... More

Had a super tapas experience at Jose on a Saturday afternoon with wife and good friends. Food was first class and served with a happy smile. Jose is a small location with limited seating but stand-up tapas was a great experience so don't be put off. The food and staff make for a great experience.

Ate here last Friday night with a friend-restaurant is very busy and there are no more than 12-15 stalls so be warned you should arrive early! We didn't get there until around 730pm but we knew we would be waiting and we had some wine standing up in the entrance while eyeing everyone's food! We waited around 25 mins then... More

My date and I shared six dishes. Each dish was devine. Our whole experience was pleasant. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. I will definitely be back next time I'm in London. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for great Tapas!

Great tapas bar in SE1. Really high quality of food and service impeccable. The sort of place you could while away a couple of hour eating the most delicious Spanish tapas. Go and try it out you won't be disappointed

Its the kind of place you wish was on your doorstep. It has the feeling of an intimate, buzzy, neighbourhood bar but is located in a bustling part of London, but once inside you'd never know it. The food was delicious, everything from the sublime Iberico Pork Fillet to the absolute moreish Croquetas. Good wine list and an abundance of... More

My wife and I came here based on the raving TA reviews and were very disappointed. Besides screwing up the food which I'll get to in a second, the host snatched my chair while I was in the bathroom and didn't return it as promised. After a long day on my feet sightseeing, I had to stand even more as... More

Tucked away in a little corner, it's the ideal spot for a pop in lunch! A great atmosphere, very reasonably priced and hilarious service. Definitely worth a visit!

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
