Fodor's Review

London's top Spanish tapas bar is modeled on Cal Pep in old-town Barcelona, and similarly has only a few—23 in total—raised bar stools at the three-sided counter. It's no-reservations–-so expect to stand in queue–-but the tapas is well worth the wait. Their motto is "Sourcing Not Saucing," so get ready to nosh on brilliant small plates prepared in front of you: garlic prawns, ham croquetas, salt cod fritters, rare Galician percebes ("goose barnacles") crustaceans, baby squid, and octopus with capers, plus classics like Spanish torilla, spicy chorizo, and thin-sliced cured Montanera ham. There's a crack selection of Spanish reds, whites, sherries, and sparkling Cavas, and leave room for cute desserts like crèma Catalana or almond-based Santiago tart.
